Not bad.

A disappointment. This series is nothing like 'The Private Lives of Masterpieces' which was such a hit a few years ago. It consists of a bunch of self-important art critics chattering and posing at each other about a selection of fine artworks in a party-like setting. After a couple of hours of their yammering I came reluctantly to the conclusion that they really had very little expertise or insight to offer. The best part of the show is a series of cartoon-like vignettes illustrating aspects of artistic conventions.
