Easily one of the most unintentionally funny comments I've read.
Yes. He's entitled to his opinion, but I think a lot of us would disagree with him.
Maybe it's a US versus UK thing - in the UK we tend to like our comedy a bit more subtle and less in-your-face. Laid-back ironic comedy (which also featured in David Nobbs' "A Bit of a Do") may not travel too well across the Atlantic.
I prefer another comment "I gave a copy of the trilogy boxed set to Martin Scorsese as an example of a near perfect TV series." - http://www.britmovie.co.uk/forums/tv-locations/28145-beiderbecke-affai

While I think the Beiderbeck Affair is funny, I am not sure i agree about the British generally liking subtle comedy. Not when you consider that Only Fools and Horses was voted best sitcom ever a few years ago.
