As an American watching the TV show I found it very enjoyable, but there were large segments in the dialogue that simply eluded me. Am I just not getting the britishisms or do folks in the UK have trouble following this show as well due to its heavy use of esoteric cultural references? 01:46, 11 November 2007 (UTC) Sandy

They might now, but at the time i got most of the gags despite being an arseholey teenager. One episode i remember was an MP who had been caught with his pants down on Hampstead Heath (a well known gay cottaging area) and he said he was "looking for foxes". When this episode was shown a real MP had been caught doing exactly the same thing (only he said he was looking for badgers), i was amazed at how fast they had got the episode out with the news still in people's minds. At the end of the episode the disgraced MP appears advertising "Fox's Beer", i was pissing myself86.159.19.171 (talk) 22:13, 11 August 2009 (UTC)


I'd suggest creating a separate article for the TV adaptation, preferably at Absolute Power (TV series), with a summary style section here. Please have a look at WP:LEAD; there is information in the lead of this article that is not repeated in the main body.--Opark 77 21:38, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
