Yes Prime Minister
(1986, United Kingdom)

Language: English



Sequel to Yes Minister, this series again follows the bumpy cooperation between minister Jim Hacker (now due to unusual circumstances promoted to be Prime Minister) and Sir Humphrey Appleby, who does what is in his nature - everything he can to stop Hacker from actually making a change in British politics. Yes Prime Minister was filmed while Cold War was pretty much still on, so Hacker’s plans need to include the Russian spies, the options of nuclear and conventional weapons United Kingdom should invest into, not to mention that he has to deal with real problems, like the fact that Number 10 does not have a cook...

Similar in style and humour to its predecessor Yes Prime Minister is one of the classics of British comedy, not only for the jokes, but also the more down-to-earth and even cynical look at the reality of politics. Yes, there are idealists among politicians, but there are always Sir Humphreys of the world that will try to stop them or change them into mindless puppet. Great cast and well written scripts made it a comedy series that is not only fun to watch, but also contains a lot of depressing facts about politics that can relate to today’s reality, 40 years from Yes Prime Minister premiere.
