Pure, unadulterated nostalgia, with a heavy sprinkling of satire. From the sets, to the dialogue, to the slew of big name actors - there isn't much here that wasn't perfectly placed. A tribute to both television in the 1970s, and massive arts egos. A touch too much at times - but that's all part of the appeal.

My expectations for this show were probably set way too high. Rather boring, and I felt like I wasted my time watching this. However, it was rather funny and that kept me watching.
