PC brigade
27 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I see the witless morons from the PC brigade are out in force. If they don't like the humour in On The Buses, then why do these poor brainwashed unfortunates bother writing in? Could it be jealousy that their heroes are lucky to get anywhere near a quarter of the viewing figures that this wonderful show received? Could it be that their own favourites aren't worth writing about? Who knows? Who cares? No matter what they do, quality will always shine through and when the rubbish has disappeared (who remembers Ben Elton for example?) the likes of On The Buses will still be fondly thought of and remembered. Long live common sense and two fingers to the PC brigade
