I'm an American and I too loved this show.
20 July 2005 | by srsuppesSee all my reviews

This is not a matter of ethnicity. I feel it's a matter of intelligence. You have to understand sarcasm and irony to enjoy this series. I agree South Park is pretty weak, but no less tiresome than Monty Python. I'm not comparing them, simply stating that both can get old pretty fast. Bob and Margaret is a sophisticated, eclectic, sardonic comedy series. My wife and I can't wait for this series to come out on DVD. It is a slice of life that we can sit back and laugh at someone else's problems, and compare them to our own, with a sense of humor. Definitely worth enjoying if you can find it. It's too bad this series was not received well by the masses, it doesn't have the slap-stick, easy to digest fell of some of the other comedies that people mindlessly ingest.
