Another Lame ITV Sitcom
4 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you ever need an explanation as to why ITV stopped making sitcoms some time ago, here is yet another example of a lame, tired and painfully unfunny show.

Actually it's not the worst of the channel's output by far; it's not terrible, but then again...

In reality it was a vehicle for it's main star, an attempt to broaden his appeal away from the Trotter persona. It was also a poor way for the late Mr Troughton to end his long career.

Lyndhurst makes the best of the poor scripts, and unoriginal gags.

A couple of years after this show finished, Lyndhurst crossed back to the BBC for "Goodnight Sweetheart", another lightweight comedy but at least with an interesting sci-fi element.
