    Anyone watching this new half-hour series on IFC? I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. It's about what Monty Python might have done if they had done a series about Sherlock Holmes.

    Year of the Rabbit

    Detective Inspector Rabbit, a dedicated, tough, thick and oft inebriated Victorian copper, sleuths his way across London with his two young partners, a doofy rookie, and a brilliant black policewoman no one ever believes.

    Trailer (which doesn't do it justice):

    I have it recorded, but unwatched.

    Matt Berry is very funny.

    I'd tried the first episode but it was making me nauseous. It seems to be filmed at a high frame rate and it messes with my head. There was some other British show recently that gave me the same problem. I hope this isn't a trend.

    I had been watching Toast of London and saw the trailers for this show so I set up a season pass for it. I love the recurring role of Joseph Merrick as part of the cast. I've become a huge Matt Berry fan ever since I saw What We Do In The Shadows.

    Sadly though, in typical British TV fashion there's only six episodes for season 1 and so far that's all that's aired on the BBC.
