In a comedy class of its own at the time.
1 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well, what can I write about a comedy that I haven't seen for almost forty years. I remember watching it with my brother when we were late teens. Without being elitist in any way I believe that it was a thinking person's comedy. It dealt with dry, cerebral issues of working class family life. Fussy, PC types of today would object to the stereotyping but that's their short sighted problem. My favourite character was the dad played by John Comer, a very gifted comedy actor who deserved more than bit parts in Summer Wine. The dreary Carter made Summer Wine's Barry seem lively by comparison. I had the hots for the dreamy Anita Carey, and still do. We see endless repeats of Summer Wine and Fools and Horses. Why is this mini classic never shown anymore?
