Based On A ( Unfunny ) Running Gag
2 November 2004 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

This is a spin off from the MRS MERTON spoof talk show . She had a son called Malcolm who would often creep up in conversations with guests and became a sort of running gag similar to COLUMBO where the eponymous detective would discuss his wife . This led to a spin off show called MRS COLUMBO which flopped . You'd think producers would learn something via other peoples mistakes

The two previous commentators I Love It and Richard have both given positive reviews to this spin off but I won't . I'm not sure if like I Love It it has anything to do with regional humour but I doubt if it does . The premise is slightly similar to the classic BBC comedy SORRY where an over protective mother treats her full grown adult son as a child but everything is done a manner so silly it becomes surreal and not in a good way . Friend of the family Arthur Capstick visits the family home and while Mrs Merton is putting on the kettle Arthur and Malcolm dance . When I say dance I'm not talking about some sort of homo erotic experience I'm talking about something that's included because it seemed to be aimed for the funny bone . It certainly misfired on this viewer

It only ran for one short series and I'm surprised it lasted that long
