Instead, I am spending all evening watching episodes of Yes, Prime Minister. I've posted about Yes, Prime Minister before, but you probably don't remember. So I'm telling you now: not only does it have the brilliant Nigel Hawthorne and Paul Eddington, but it is also one of the funniest satires of modern British politics (and for that matter all beuracracy) of its time. Here are some clips, thanks to the BBC YouTube Channel (which, by the way, is awesome: they have entire playlists dedicated to the best shows, like this, A Bit of Fry and Laurie, and Fawlty Towers).
Both Yes, Prime Minister and its precursor Yes, Minister are available on Netflix instant veiw.
