Christmas '75 - Learning to Drive (special episode). When Frank is driving the white mini in the country lane, trying to overtake the lady on the bike, there is nothing behind the mini, but then a split second later he is being followed by a silver Renault.

Some Mothers Do 'ave 'em Is A 1970's British TV Show, At First It Was Unsure Of The Direction But It Managed To Become A Hit That Way. When I Was A Kid I Spent My Time Around British TV Shows Such As "The Goodies", "Are You Being Served" This & "The Benny Hill Show". Some Haven't Aged Well With My Taste Now (Are You Being Served) But Overall I Think I Had Good Taste Around That Time.
I Can Understand Why This Isn't Exactly Everyone's Favourite Show(My Favourite Show Is Completely Different) But Like "The Goodies" This Show Has Carried So Many Memories Like My Family Killing Ourselves Laughing At Frank Completely F#ucking Up The Nativity Play At Christmas.
I Recently Rewatched A Few Of The Eps And I'm Amazed As To How Much I Still Like It. I Saw The Episode Where Frank Witnesses The Family Doctor Dressed In Drag And I Was Killing Myself Laughing At It And Frank Trying To Convince Him Not To Go Out Is Priceless "Just Say 'I Am A Man'".
Overall This Is Not My Favourite Show(It Never Was; Back When All These Shows Were My Favourites Goodies Were My Thing) But I Can Still Find Time For Frank Spencer's Idiocy Here And There.
