    This episode is absolutely marvellous. Honestly I cannot recall the last time I laughed this much. Especially when Edina decides to dress up for the occasion.

    It’s a show with the most perfect examples of the British humour. That in my opinion should not be pushed to the background. You see in the English shows they do not push all subject to background but they give a right amount of attention to it so that people learn to deal with it. And they do it in a very humoristic way. And this is by far one of the most interesting episodes. I mean Edina make me laugh I know you like that as well.moreless
