Sneak Peek: BBC America's Almost Royal Comedy Gets a Plastics Lesson

Loading video...

The Brits are invading America — and they’re starting with a Marina del Rey plastic surgeon’s office?

The Almost Royal aristocrats of BBC America’s first original comedy series, Georgie and Poppy, are venturing to the U.S. for the first time to interact with real-life, unsuspecting Americans.

In our sneak peek, the brother/sister duo visit a Los Angeles staple: a 60-year-old plastic surgeon, who looks a lot younger than his age and has a 37-year-old girlfriend.

“Does she look seven?” wonders Poppy before she and Georgie feel up some breast implants. (Nanny’s were nowhere near as perky, remarks Poppy.)

Almost Royal premieres with back-to-back episodes this Saturday at 10/9c, following the season finale of Orphan Black.

    1) I can’t believe it’s the season finale of Orphan Black already. Super sad news.
    2) I’m not really happy that this crap is pushing The Graham Norton Show back an hour. That’s where I get my comedy on BBCAmerica, not whatever this junk is. From the clips I’ve seen, those two are way too annoying to watch for any length of time. I hope when Orphan Black finishes, they’ll move this crap to 9 & move TGNS back to 10 instead of 11.

    Wow. I’ve never heard of this show before. Usually I have but this one flew completely under the radar. What is it about anyhow?

      it’s basically Borat. actors pretending to be real and going around being ridiculous. the BBC America youtube channel has lots of funny promotional content you should check out to get a better idea.

    this show looks so ridiculous i might just love it. they’ve been collaborating with lots of youtubers recently, which is a fantastic idea for bringing in younger viewers. i’m totally into it! i’ll be watching tomorrow!
