Yes Prime Minister

We’re not sure it was very fair of the BBC News site to run a story about the first episode of this new run being “slammed” by critics as most of them seemed more lukewarm than anything else. They do appear to be united in their suggestion that this show is a bit stagey, unsurprising given it’s adapted from a stage play, though we wonder how much of that is simply dickhead TV critics lazily writing off anything with a studio audience. Maybe they’d have been better off just filming the play. Maybe if they’d done a pilot they could have spotted any potential problems that before they committed to the series, eh?
