    According to Hugh Laurie it is...
    I thought it did quite well on Five, it seems it's usually in high in their top 10 shows of the week, and gets 2-3m viewers regularly. Seems a bit odd that it would be considered a flop.

    It's perhaps not as popular as it could be, though.

    I suppose it's not as popular as it is in the US, but then again what shows are?

    There would be some people saying, "He's not a doctor, he's the Prince Regent, with Blackadder as his butler! He's an imbecile!"

    Mind you, that just tells me he's a bloody good actor.

    I keep expecting him to say "What ho! Jeeves" to Cuddy.

    ^Ever since Monty Python it's been a rite of passage for male, university educated British comedy actors to dress up as women at some point early in their careers.

    Absobloodylutely! And much fun they have given us. :D

    I've liked Laurie in just about everything he's done - he's a great comedian and actor.

    Actually long before that, hence pantomime traditions and various other comic acts.

    Oh love for your Baltar sig....

    I'm writing an audio sitcom with a friend at the moment (to be podcasted) and it occurred to me last night that the entire cast is male, even though we have a few female chars.

    Now I'm convinced we're destined for the big thyme.

    She does consider our silly "sitcom" intellectually beneath her, I think.
