  1. British Comedy

    I know the TCM/Canvas course has long since ended, but I'm still paying attention to some comedy. Dirk Gently is a British series that I think works well because of the use of exaggeration. The main character is exaggerated in very specific ways. He and his sidekick detective provide almost all the humor. It reminded me a bit of the Pink Panther movie A Shot in the Dark because the local police chief (or captain?) is exasperated by Dirk Gently's unorthodox methods. And it's just plain laugh-out-loud funny!
