No captions! I'll bet it's really good, but I can't enjoy it. Sorry....

A disappointment. Several superb actors (Hugh Laurie, Benjamin Cumberbach, Peter Capaldi, Anna Chancellor, Sheila Hancock) all give effective performances. But the script never rises above by-the-numbers sitcom, leaping from one painfully artificial construct to another. Still, I would recommend for fans of the various performers. Capaldi is particularly ill used in the early episodes but allowed some humanity towards the end.

Very funny! A bit slow first episode, but then...funny!

You'd better stick to the piano Hugh.

I was a little disappointed in this production; couldn't get past the first episode. Maybe I will try again for I'm a huge fan of Hugh Laurie.

Clearly this is not one of Hugh Laurie's better ventures.
