Matt Berry’s acerbic sitcom Toast of London has landed on Netflix UK and US, and many Americans are discovering the show for the first time.
The show, which stars The Mighty Boosh and IT Crowd star as a middle-aged actor who is forced to take on a series of undesirable roles, had not previously aired on US television – and now all three seasons are available for Netflix subscribers all over the world to binge and enjoy.
The reaction so far has been overwhelmingly positive:

It's been a damn good day.

Toast of London features memorable cameos from a host of stars, including Martin Freeman, and the late Sir Bruce Forsyth – well, somebody in a prosthetic mask pretending to be Brucie at any rate.
It has been nearly 2 years since the end of season 3, and in July Matt Berry told Radiotimes.com that he wasn’t sure if he’d ever return to the series.
Toast of London seasons 1-3 are available to stream on Netflix UK.
