Is It Any Good?

This dark comedy features a man who becomes consumed by his fantasies about his mistress, and the havoc he wreaks every time he tries to make them a reality. Arthur is a pathetic creature, and his goals are far from being moral or legal. But Martha's obnoxious personality makes his behavior a little more understandable, if not excusable. This results in a pretty funny plotline in which few people are particularly likable, but their interactions result in some very funny moments.

It's well written and well produced, but some of the scenes occasionally border on slapstick, and some of the caustic lines mock things like disabilities, which can be hard to watch. While some of this is a result of cultural differences, the series pushes the envelope in a range of uniquely bizarre ways. If you like this sort of humor, Arthur's Law will not leave you disappointed.
