Great Comedy – Keen Eddie

Filed under: Entertainment,Fun Stuff,Humour — aproposofnothing @ 9:20 pm

This show came out 3-4 years ago, but I read something recently that reminded me of it. This is one of the best shows that I have seen on TV in the last 10 years or so. Unfortunately, the morons at Fox canceled it after 7 episodes. Brave picked it up and aired all 13.

After his investigation into an oxycodone ring results in a botched drug bust, New York police Detective Eddie Arlette is sent to London to assist Scotland Yard with its work on the same case. Eddie and his British police partner, Inspector Monty Pippin, help crack the case, and Eddie is asked to stay on at Scotland Yard.In addition to his work, Eddie has an adversarial relationship with Fiona (Sienna Miller), who occupies the flat he is renting from her parents; she begrudgingly puts up with him (and his Bull Terrier, Pete), because he has threatened to reveal to her parents that she is not actually enrolled at university. Eddie also has albeit a seemingly imaginary flirtatious relationship with Carol Ross (Superintendent Nathanial Johnson’s assistant), whom he calls “Ms. MoneyPenny” and with whom he banters using double entendres of a sexual nature.

Here’s a couple of clips:
