It stars David Mitchell, who I enjoy and Liza Tarbuck who I also enjoy.
It should be great, but it is a Shakespearean satire without the wit or erudition of Shakespeare. It feels like a sixth form play (dunno, is that high school in the US?) By that I mean it is reductive and dumb and without wit or subtlety.
Faux archaic is calling your coffee house Ye Olde Coffee Shoppe and then lacking the knowledge to understand that "Ye" is pronounced "the" and no-one ever pronounced the "e" on "olde".
