I'm very sorry to be so late reviewing this sitcom. I've
had a busy summer! This show is more witty and droll than
funny. Also, it's crude and grotesque (like many Comedy
Central shows). If you're into that kind of thing, you might
It basically spoofs shows like "Downton Abbey" and
"Upstairs: Downstairs" but also turns them into a Kardassian-like
reality show spoof. The characters are a very rich (but
really stupid) family that are selfish and entitled, and
they treat their servants badly (as well as each other).
It can be amusing at times. It's not the worst show on TV,
but if you don't like crudity or things that are really
extremely disgusting at times, you probably won't like it.
It does have a really great cast, and they do a great
job. It's just really not my kind of show. Also, I don't
watch either Downton Abbey or reality shows, so maybe some
of the jokes are lost on me. Like many Comedy Central
shows, it's probably funnier if you're drunk or stoned.
MORE: Another Period follows the lives of the obscenely
rich Bellacourt family and their many servants in
turn-of-the-century Rhode Island. Natasha Leggero and Riki
Lindhome lead an all-star cast -- including Michael Ian
Black, David Wain, Christina Hendricks, Jason Ritter and
Paget Brewster -- in this historical satire about
narcissistic aristocrats and the poor souls in their employ.
