Subject: reasonably bizarre anymore!

Possibly analogous to the positive use of "anymore":

any comment on this use of "reasonably"? (seen on stumpers-l)

the show has never been on Masterpiece Theatre. It was called Nice Town

and was a British show dealing with race in a reasonably bizarre manner.

It was difficult to make out whether the show was a surreal commedy, a

black comedy, or a serious narrative dealing with modern issues in the

UK. The show was enjoyable although passing strange.

"reasonably bizarre" is a phrase I never expected to see used in a sentence.

Is "reasonably" used here as a synonym for "considerably"?

Or does it mean "not too bizarre"?


But what happens to the glide in the first syllable of "Pulitzer"?

What glide?
