I'd forgotten how good this was!
9 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

'Me and My Girl' is one of those rare sitcoms that manages to be quite ordinary, yet funny. While it doesn't have the wackiness of most of the best British sitcoms, it is incredibly charming in it's own humble way. Unlike most shows of its genre, which have bratty children and over-indulgent parents, 'Me and My Girl' depicts an average family and is all the better for it. Richard O'Sullivan (Simon) and Joanne Ridley (Sam) work so well together, you'd swear they were a real father and daughter. Tim Brooke-Taylor as the hen-pecked Derek is hilarious and rather poignant. You want him to escape from under the jackboot of the never-seen Muriel, but it never happens! And Joan Sanderson plays the wonderfully strong mother-in-law Nell beautifully. This show is an under-appreciated gem, so if you're lucky enough to be able to catch repeats, do.
