In politics, you have to really get behind somebody before you can stab them in the back! Named one of the Top Ten TV programs of all time by the British Film Institute, this brilliantly observed comedy of manners pits the well-meaning Jim Hacker, a newly appointed Cabinet Minister, against the machinations of a career civil servant, Sir Humphrey Appleby, in the ultimate political marriage of inconvenience. Paul Eddington (Good Neighbors) stars as the The Right Honorable Jim Hacker, a role that was written especially for him, and Academy Award nominee Nigel Hawthorne (The Madness of King George) first drew wide notice in the role of Sir Humphrey Appleby. Yes Minister is the first--and only--series to win the British Academy Award for Best Comedy three years running.

Do-gooder batted .500 against the real powers in charge.
Um...people the DVD picture is all wrong.

Tremendously funny and timeless. I defy anyone to not see in current events echoes of Yes, Minister.

So accurate in it's observations, it could be a documentary, or mockumentary, because the humour, personalities and plots are all believable.

Highly recommended along with Yes, Minister.

Sly satire and witty dialogue. This is like comfort food for the anglophile!

I first saw this when it aired in the early 1980's. Three middle-aged men talking about government doesn't seem like a good premise for comedy, but the writing is so witty, and the satire about bureacracy and politics is so biting that it stands the test of time. Superb.
