Spy (2011 TV series)


Wikipedia Link

Summary: A bumbling British guy is accidentally recruited to be a spy.  Hilarity ensues.

Thoughts: Here in the US, this series was only available on hulu, where I stumbled on it after a friend had mentioned it on Facebook.  The humor is very direct, over-the-top, and ultra-cheesy, and not in an awful Disney Channel way.  I found it to be hilarious, and enjoyed the many film references and parodies throughout.

Unfortunately it seems the British version is now dead, but ABC plans on bringing an American remake to TV sometime later this year.  I suppose I’ll watch out for it and give it a chance, but my instincts tell me that Americans will ruin it.  I haven’t been impressed by any modern American comedies.
