Another forgotten gem from the comedy archives. This was made in the un pc times when people just wanted to sit and have a giggle after a hard days work.The late great Joe Kinnear leads the cast of misfits who spend more time and effort trying to get out of work than they could actually spend working. Laughs galore here with situations adhered to in typical comedy script..Work Outings..tea drinking...the boss and his young secretary...all basic comedy prefixes. Colin Welland gives a great performance as the plumber who leads the trio of work shy socialists who scam their way through the working day rather than earn an honest pay packet. Debbie Linden, a name from my teenage dreams, plays the blonde secretary who spends all day touching up her nails and looking nice whilst trying to ignore the attentions of her overweight boss. One or two marvellous cameos here and there and sadly cancelled after just 3 series. At last available as a box set it stands the test of time and puts so called modern comedies in the shade.
