Did You Know?


Although there were numerous people in the opening credits, Riki Lindhome and Natasha Leggero were the only cast members of the show during season one, in the sense that everyone else had contractual agreements to shoot other shows. As a consequence, much of the first season was shot out of sequence, to accommodate the other actors' and actresses' schedules. See more »

A Talented Cast Promises Some Broad Humor on Comedy Central
24 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Featuring broad comedy reminiscent of Monty Python, in part because it's a period piece, "Another Period" is about the Bellacourt family--one of the obscenely rich families that populated the cliffs of Newport, R.I. at the turn of the century, when Victorian values collided with entitlement and self-indulgence.

Lillian and Beatrice are the daughters--two self-obsessed ninnies who care only for social status and pampering themselves, like the Hilton sisters might be if they had money. The third daughter is Hortense, a broad-faced spinster who the other sisters enjoy ridiculing.

Mr. Peepers (Michael Ian Black) is the major domo who enforces the arbitrary and demeaning rules of the household over the myriad of servants.

In the pilot, the house receives a new maid, Celine (Christina Hendricks), who is promptly given the new appellation "Chair". Given the amazing acting talents of Ms. Hendricks, I think we can expect some laughs. Given her charms, I think we can expect some members of the household to take up upholstery.

Helen Keller even visits the mansion for a soiree that devolves into a catfight and knock-knock jokes. Like I said, broad humor.

All of the characters are caricatures and this can be a funny show as long as the writers allow the humor to arise from the silly characters without political correctness.

Update 7/5/16: This show has been reliably funny and it has not flagged in its efforts to lampoon without any PC qualms. I am increasing my grade to "9".
