Fantastic series only hinted at here

This is only six episodes of some 48 episodes of the series. It is lively, clever and, I think, better than the "Pythonesque" comparison most commonly employed in describing it.

There is no Burkiss. "How do do (something) the Burkiss Way" is just a "hook" for the amazing collection of skits, superbly written and flawlessly performed. Be sure to look out for the false ... The Burkiss Way had just end ... Now to the continuity announcer ...

I have played these ten times or more.

Where is the rest of the series?
