Storyline

Ted Bullpitt's most precious possession is his Kingswood Holden car. He objects when his son, or his son-in-law, wants to drive the car and keeps the keys hidden. He is also unimpressed with his daughter's choice of a husband. Ted's brother is a sales representative for Datsun cars - something else which incurs Ted's disgust, as he feels that his brother should only deal with Kingswood Holden cars. Written by David McAnally <D.McAnally@uq.net.au>

Terrible
18 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is the worst attempt at comedy ever produced in Australia and it's embarrassing to try to watch. The best thing that can be said for this utter garbage is that Australian comedy has grown a great deal since 1980. To think that anybody was actually entertained by such a train wreck of Australian over-'acted' - acting can barely be used to describe how the characters are portrayed - pantomime, is truly frightening and an indictment of how naive Australian society must have been at the time. This show is just absolutely awful. Terrible. Horrible. The copies of it ought to be burned, aside from one to be locked in a vault and brought out every 50 years to remind Australia how far they've come- then quickly locked back up again before someone burns that copy, too.
