Simply the funniest 70s sitcom
9 September 2001 | by (Northants, UK) – See all my reviews



Citizen Smith was my favourite 70s sitcom.

The first review on this gives an accurate picture of what it was about, and the people involved.

Wolfie is one of lifes eternal losers, with visions of socialist political power (to the people).

the most memorable scene I remember was when they launched a protest, and broke into the houses of parliament in order to vioce their disaproval, only to discover that all the MPs were on holiday.

There are many similarities between 'Smith' and 'Only Fools & Horses' - the writing in both was superb.

Perhaps the BBC & Robert Lindsay would consider a revival of this series, although I feel it is probably better left as it was - simply perfect!
