Truly witty and extremely funny
Set in a PR company who will attempt to spin anything in any direction I really believe this is one of the best television comedy series I've ever seen. Sharp, witty, fast paced and really very, very funny. The scripts are as densely packed as Fawlty Towers and repeated watchings are rewarded with new insights and ideas that were missed first time round. If you blink you're guaranteed to miss something.
Charles Prentis is superbly portrayed as a man with no scruples or morals whatsoever by Stephen Fry and John Bird, Zoe Telford and James Lance make a supporting cast to die for.
The other thing that makes Absolute Power so unusual is that the second series is as good as the first series. It covers topics as wide ranging and ridiculous in their scope and does so with such a slick style that you're often really not sure what's going to happen until the very last moment.
