Deadpan faux reality series is hysterical, slightly rude.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Almost Royal is a rib-tickler, but it's the kind of British-y humor that not all viewers will appreciate. The jokes are silly and often quite rude (Georgie explains to a soap opera actress how he conceals his pesky erections in French class; the siblings speculate on whether their widowed mom would enjoy having Fabio give her "more action in her life"), but they're so mumbled, dry, and relatively sophisticated that some viewers won't find them at all funny. But, suffice it to say, if you're the type of viewer who appreciates the work of English comics such as Ricky Gervais or Steve Coogan, you're going to laugh at Almost Royal.

Did we miss something on diversity?
