    BBC America misses wide of the mark with Almost Royal.

  • Rob Owen

    Almost Royal is not a series that demands to be watched, but it’s a cute diversion for Anglophiles looking for intermittent laughs.

  • Caroline Framke

    Making Georgie and Poppy unintelligent isn’t a poor choice on its own, but Almost Royal does so much better when it lets these characters get specific about their privileged upbringing.

  • Hank Stuever

    There’s a lack of conviction to Almost Royal’s premise that means the funniest parts are only just mildly funny.

  • Robert Lloyd

    Fortunately, Gamble and Hoggart can be quite funny in their pretended confusion. Their strategies are sometimes too obvious, but often the humor takes a nicely absurdist turn.

  • David Wiegand

    Almost Royal has enough silliness for both American and British tastes.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Gamble and Hoggart manage to strike just the right tone, sounding alternately wide-eyed and priggish, without coming across as mean-spirited--which is no small feat.

    Imagine Borat's vibe with Summer Heights High's spirit--definitely worth a peek, if that's your cup of tea. [20 Jun 2014, p.60]

  • Nancy DeWolf Smith

    Most of the people [Ed Gamble and Amy Hoggart--who pose as Georgie and Poppy Carlton] encounter seem to believe they're being filmed with real British aristos on a travel-type show about the U.S. Their surprise--and polite attempts to hide it--at the things the visitors from England say is the funniest part of the show.

  • Mark A. Perigard

    Gamble and Hoggart are credited as “per­formers” on the show and are also writers­ for the series, and their ability to ad-lib and play with anyone and every­one they come in contact with is a joy to watch, proof you can say almost anything to anyone, no matter how outrageous, so long as you maintain an air of innocence. Or stu­pidity.
