  • After setting up a meeting between an African dignitary and the Queen,there's a coup d'etat- which throws a few ministers into a tizzy. Until Jim realizes something!

    I enjoyed this early episode due to the fact that it showed that our favorite political innocent was able to do a bit of gamesmanship, come out alright, and shut Sir Humphrey up for a little bit!

    The classic train berth scene is always a hoot to watch!

    All three of our leads- Jim, Sir Humphrey, and Bernard- are fun to watch and they have smart-fun things to say.

    This episode is my personal favorite and I recommend it stongly!
