Almost Royal (spoilers)

Is anybody else watching the new BBC America comedy Almost Royal? It's really silly but the two episodes I watched (Los Angeles and Boston) made me chuckle a few times.

"Silly" is a good word for it. I thought of it as Sacha Baron Cohen lite.

I thought I might hate it but the main characters were more than the empty headed simpletons they portrayed on the interview on Graham Norton. They were pretty good natured.

Not great TV by any means but okay.

Aside from the Graham Norton show appearance, I've only seen the teasers, which are a lot of fun.

My fave so far:
Spoiler:
'friends with benefits'


But I don't know if I'm up for a whole show's worth of jokes like that.

I'm afraid with all the teasers BBCA has been running, we've seen all the jokes already, and the shows will just be long drawn out versions of the punchlines we've seen.

That being said, I missed the premiere, but set up recordings to catch the reruns sometime this week.

Spoilers are okay in this thread.

Very little of it was that obvious. Or oblivious.

Yeah, I sometimes open a bunch of threads at once (in separate tabs). By the time I posted in this one, I forgot that the thread title said spoilers were okay.

My wife will be bummed because she thought that this was a series with Kate & William.
And of course, the Royal Baby!
