Based on the Comedy Playhouse sketches by Ray Galton & Alan Simpson
9 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

This TV series were, and are, a hit with Norwegian audiences, and also a limited success in Sweden and Denmark. The comedy is sometimes hilarious and over the top, in the best style of British comedy, and this is, of course, thanks to the writing of Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. One of the episodes is based the "Impasse" from the Comedy Playhouse, another on "Sealed by a loving kiss" and a third on "Visiting Day".

A couple of other memorable episodes is one where Fleksnes is the babysitter for a priest and his wife. His carefree and non-interested attitude give way to chaos as he takes on the role as the priest when parishioners start knocking on the door.

The Fleksnes series have had several follow ups through the years, though I can't seem to find any others here in IMDB.

The cast Rolv Wesenlund and Aud Schøneman is perfect. Rolv Wesenlund is a perfect Fleksnes. He don't care about other people, he's the perfect self-absorbed twit. Aud Schøneman is the doting mother who is content with keeping the son home, and overbearing with any and all of his faults.

The mother is actually quite in line with Albert of "Albert och Herbert" (Swedish TV series), based on the "Steptoe and Son" hit series by messrs Galton and Simpson.
