The most amusing English/world-wide TV series of all time!
I knew for the first time about Michael Crawford and this TV series in 1985, when it was broadcasted in TV-3 -the Catalan channel-. I ever before had been laughing with so pleasure!. All situations are so funny and Michael´s acting is so superb!. I remember him destroying million pounds machines, bedrooms, shops, bars, dozen of dishes of a restaurant, henhouses, showing his skills making cradles, henhouses, repairing the lid of the rubbish plastic container, dancing, teaching an abandoned dog that he adopted, learning about sexuality going to lessons together with women of odd hairdos, feeding his daughter, be caught on a glued chair with an old lady sitting on, saying 'Don´t touch me...I´m a married man!', talking always about his mother...
Situations are so hilarious that even Betty and the other great actors who participated in the series hardly can contain their laughs. I recommend also Michael´s refreshing film of the sixties 'The Knack'.
