Regarded by many as one of the best British Sitcoms of all time, Yes Minister is a Political satire British sitcom written by Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn that was first transmitted on BBC Two from 1980 to 1984, split over three seven-episode series. Set principally in the private office of a British Cabinet minister in the fictional Department of Administrative Affairs in Whitehall, Yes Minister follows the ministerial career of the Rt Hon Jim Hacker MP, played by Paul Eddington. His various struggles to formulate and enact legislation or effect departmental changes are opposed by the British Civil Service, in particular his Permanent Secretary, Sir Humphrey Appleby, played by Sir Nigel Hawthorne. His Principal Private Secretary Bernard Woolley, played by Derek Fowlds, is usually caught between the two. Yes Minister's brilliant cast, writing and insightful political commentary has made the series a favorite among many, including the then Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Margaret Thatcher. I have included here a list of all the episodes of Yes Minister. Rank them in the order of most favorite to least favorite and help decide which episodes are the best. Source(s): IMDB, Wikipedia
