Great fun

This satirical comedy series is an enjoyable take on the crazy and backstabbing world of politics. I love the fact that it aired during the lead up and right up until the night before the election. It attracted a fantastic cast of established comedy and straight actors, which says a lot for its appeal. The ludicrous UKIP jokes were a wonderful knock at a world gone mad and the PC- positive-thinking-ness of the American adviser to the Labour party may not have been exaggerated all that much at all. Ben Miller's character's meltdown was beautifully played. The whole cast did a sterling job. It was a strong ensemble piece. Overall, it had the adult members of this household happily entertained by the non- stop mayhem. And our laughter might have woken up the child contingent of this home.
