It really is a shame that it isn't that popular in the United States. Everyone I've shown Johnny English and Mr. Bean has loved them both.
Well back before cable was so big it was Public Broadcastin that brought us americans Faulty towers, red green, REd dwarf, black adder, Bean, monty python, etc. AS other channels got super boring I would always love when my favorite shows would finally come on that channel during a pledge drive. My family would pledge nothing and watch the whole marathon of whatever was on.
