A sitcom.
25 June 2012 | by jonathan-affiniSee all my reviews

How to be a gentleman is a sitcom, actually just that, it has little or nothing more to it than what it is, and the fact is that this is what makes it good, it has all the clichés that a hardcore sitcom watcher knows and loves, it's quirky, mild mannered, and in no way remarkable or overly interesting just like the main character, and it has the same noncontinuous, non serious, and uncommitted writing that any casual watcher wants.

It's not spectacular, revolutionary or polemic like some other current series, but it simply does the job without making much effort to it, and for that you have to give a tip of your hat, just like a proper gentleman.
