Underrated British comedy!
4 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Goodnight sweetheart is one of the most underrated British comedies to date.

Brilliant plot, superb characters and the story lines get better and better as the series goes on.

Perhaps people's perceptions of this great show are tainted by the fact Nicholas Lyndhurst plays the main character as people still see him as "Rodney".

In GNSH Lyndhurst is able to show what a great actor he is unlike his previous one dimensional character in "Only fools…" He is joined by a great cast which really makes the show more enjoyable to watch.

It is light hearted, foolhardy and slapstick.

If you're interested in time travel and comedy then this is for you.

If you love British comedy then this is for you.

Awesome! I wish it would make some kind of comeback.

I'm in the process of writing a "spin-off" of the show based on Gary Sparrow's grandson for a university assignment. How amazing it would be if something like this actually came true!
