never trust anyone over thirty!
21 September 2000 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

Let's face it - the actors were just too old too be playing young hippies in the sixties. For me this just ruined the whole premise of the sitcom. Also while we're being honest, it wasn't very funny either, just writers living off there reputation for creating the much funnier Father Ted.

It leaves me thinking where have all the good sitcoms gone and will we have to put up with repeats of "Only Fools and Horses" and "Fawlty Towers" to remind us of how good situation comedy can be?
