In it's heydey Bread was a decent comedy about the Boswell family-a Catholic family living in Liverpool. Nellie Boswell held the largely unemployed family together during the series as they got up to all sorts.
Living down the road from the Boswells was Granddad who was an irascible old man who kept bothering them every five minutes. He added to the humour.
The only problem was that Bread ran longer than it should have. A lot of comedy shows outstay their welcome and Bread was one of them. It ran until the early 1990's but by that time most people-including myself-were fed up with it. Comedy shows should only have a limited run and Bread chose to go on for longer than it should have.
But in all fairness, the early episodes were very funny and do deserve a look.
