    "One of my favorite shows of all time, along with Supernatural, and Big Bang Theory. I have seen each series and could watch them all over again. I love that I can jump into any series/episode and I'll want to watch until the end. I just went to watch on Netflix and my heart stopped when I saw it was no longer available to stream. What would I do without Mark and Jez in my life?"

    "The link leads to a boxed set of DVDs of this TV show. The page also reveals that this TV show gets 4.7 stars and is extremely well-liked by 85% of the people who reviewed it. The plot description certainly sounds interesting. I don't know much about British TV comedy, so I will trust all the people who love it and accept that it is one of the best British comedy TV shows."

    "I feel like this series is a bit of a catch 22. The first series is okay, the second is fantastic, third is great, but by the time we get to four it's back to just okay. There are better options out there for british comedy."
