I would recommend this to anyone who may be in need of a very silly pick me up. I love the little scenes after the final music whereby Sams daughter avoids her husbands attentions yet again. The Sargent is particularly amusing.
Wonderfully played by the cast and very funny.
"Joshua carrying the horse" made me spill my coffee. Hugh Denis as Ezekiel was extremely hilarious.
Brilliantly written and performed by Hamilton and Tarses
Wish it were longer!
Revolting people is a light hearted look at early American settlers and life in their town.
The lead character - a shopkeeper has two British soldiers billeted upstairs and a revolutionary for a daughter. His other daughter has married a long winded older man and spends her nights creating excuses to ban him from her bedroom. ( ie any day of the week with a D in it).
Definitely worth the time spent listening to it!
Didn't really end - a continuing story
Good script executed (oops General Venables snuck in there), by an excellent cast. James Fleet is always funny, though sometimes it sounds like he's playing a marginally more intelligent Hugo from The Vicar of Dibley, a role which he is famous for. Andy Hamilton and Hugh Dennis play their characters very well. Well worth the money.
Its not bad , quite amusing although will never be a classic such as Elvenquest . I do like Jay Tarses voice though, very Boston , cultured . It would be good if they could poke fun at contemporary mores such as some of our celebrities, politics etc
The old woman who asked for the price of one pea in Mr Oliphant's shop
All good, neither hog the limelight
There is a series 2 available
Its ok, not great value for money quite amusing, you would probably only listen to it a couple of times
"Really enjoyed the series."
Enjoyed the humor and imagery of the audio. It was wonderfully entertaining and I truly liked the characters in the series.
Wish I could find more like this.
