Brilliant Comedy
14 March 2012 | by gryzz1976See all my reviews

Whites is laugh out loud (excuse the cliché) and intelligent comedy. I keep finding that European comedies are replacing all my previous favorites. Intelligent mixed with silly and sometimes the down right absurd. Whites is no exception with Kiki providing the absurd. I am disappointed that this was so short lived and would beg BBC and the producers to bring it back. There is a depth to the characters and an engaging storyline that is now incomplete and deserving of much more. I would prefer it stay strictly British though. Few comedies of this caliber rarely translates well into an American production (The Office excluded). Please bring Whites back or produce more of the same for us Americans who are intelligent and love humor both.
