"If you're trying to change minds and influence people it's probably not a good idea to say that virtually all elected Democrats are liars, but what the hell."
"If the number of Islamic terror attacks continues at the current rate, candlelight vigils will soon be the number-one cause of global warming. "
This was from the 2013 version of Yes, Prime Minister. Sir Anthony Jay and Jonathan Lynn have created an episode that had to have been from surveillance tapes about how global warming policies are created. Completely spot on.If I have a problem with this version of YPM, I think the actors portraying Hacker and Applebee could be switched. While I liked what I saw, I think it isn't as good as the original.
This caught me by surprise! I have on DVD- Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister, and it amazes (& delights) me that those old TV shows are still excruciatingly funny as well as hitting the nail on the head: the bureaucracy runs the government, while the elected stuffed shirts only think they do!But I'd never seen this! Didn't know they had revived the show- but sadly, they couldn't use the original actors (who were absolutely brilliant, and perfectly cast) as they have passed on. I agree with Skoonj, it isn't as good as the original, that's a very high bar indeed; but this episode was spot-on!
