Biting satire of British history focuses on a weaselly liar named Edmund and his thick sidekick, Baldrick, as they stumble into one jam after another. The series combines sharp verbal barbs, farcical situations and brilliant send-ups of historical figures. Star Rowan Atkinson ('Mr. Bean') co-created the series with Richard Curtis, who later penned 'Four Weddings and a Funeral,' 'Notting Hill' and 'Love Actually.'
Instead of spending her golden years lying down, the indomitable Hetty Wainthropp found her calling late in life. Combining common sense, her husband, and her pocketbook, this senior sleuth takes on all the cases the police deem too minor.
