Yes Minister: S3E1 – 1982

IMDB: Yes Minister: S3E1 – 1982

IMDB Rating: 8.5/10

Rotten Tomatoes: na%

It’s funny. I just sat through and watched this episode (titled “Equal Opportunities – and relating to the female population of the public sector), and it strikes me how (at least through the medias conveyance) how similar the conversations and arguments are to todays.

Anyone who was a fan of ’80s British comedy has probably gone through the Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister series’ and laughed and guffawed throughout the all.

The fact that these shows were done often in front of a live audience and the cast were able to manage keeping a straight face is impressive (refer back to my Abbott and Costello review from a few days back) as these stars play around with the vocal banter.

If you can get your hands on some of these, it’s worth your time to sit down and laugh at far we haven’t come.
