How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
A very good translation/update of the classic British TV series. All the actors were top notch. Almost all the fireworks were verbal, which is the hallmark of much British comedy writing, going all the way back to Gilbert (W.S.) and Wodehouse (P.G.). If you like that kind of brain stretching wit and wordplay, you will enjoy the production. At times, I must confess, however, that some of the wordplay was just a little too obvious. Still, there was a decent amount that was hilarious and much of it was topical. The bits of physical "business" were well handled, particularly when the actors were asked to get "casual".
