This is the very best Mr. Bean episode ever. So, if you don't like this you're either dead or you just don't like Mr. Bean (but who couldn't like it if they give the show a fair try). In fact, it's so good it's even better than the wonderful Christmas episode.

While the first portion is funny, hold on tight as the final portion when he buys a recliner and returns home to paint his apartment are not to be missed--particularly the great ending involving the hat.
FYI--I have a deaf daughter and all the Bean TV shows are great for her, as they have minimal dialog and Rowan Atkinson is a genius as pantomime.
