Product Description

With crisp dialogue, outrageous characters, and an absurd sense of humor, it's no wonder British sitcoms are so well-loved! Covering the most noteworthy situation comedies ever to cross the pond, each entry includes a show summary with descriptions of standout episodes and behind-the-scenes details, plus gives production data and full cast listings.

This revised edition of this Britcom classic contains seven new chapters on programs that have aired in the U.S. since the original edition was published, such as The Office, Extras, and My Family. This edition also includes the later developments of older series' storylines and detailed information on specials and cast reunions that have occurred in the intervening years. This is a soft cover book with 194 pages.
