“Waking Ned Devine” Trailer (on YouTube).

Very funny. Very watchable. Classic British comedy with touches of the 1960s — 1970s “Dad’s Army” — but definitely more reminiscent of 1998 “Waking Ned Devine” (though alas without any nudity involving the backsides of scrawny old men).

It was on Starz (which we got free from DISH for 3 months) and I recorded it. Glad I did. We enjoyed it. Yes, a bit corny and a tad predictable — but it is said to be based on a true story. So, I guess they had to stay somewhat close to the actual events, even at the risk of it been not-as-dramatic if it was purely fictional. Great cast of characters. Try and watch it. I am sure you will enjoy it.
