This is quality 1980s classic fun!!!!
16 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well,im writing this as as 37 year old nostalgic man and always had vague albeit good memories of this insane British sitcom with Jim Davidson from 1983/84/85 and for so long I wanted to see it again.Through a friend of a friend I was able to see it once again a great DVD compilation which has all 22 episodes.....WHY DO I LIKE THIS SITCOM????.....I find the cockney rhyming slang dialogue hilarious....eg: "oh my gawwwd,he's elephant's trunk...get him away from me ".......its amiably played with John Bardon (jim brennan in East enders) as Jim's dad....and Sue Nicholls from Coronation Street (Gail Platt's mother) as sexual predator neighbour Wanda Pickles :) its,surreal....bizarre its brilliant......its insane......its chocka block full of great British actors.I love this mad comedy. Its certainly better than Surgical Spirit check it out and revel in British comedy
