This show is NOT a victim of political correctness, it was just rubbish. It was dated before it began. It began years after Monty Python, Beyond the Fringe, the Goons and Hancock.
The defence is that it had more gags in a half hour than any other show on television before or since.
The downside is that none of them were funny.
It is squarely to blame for bringing some notably untalented people to the fore. This is nothing to do with the type of jokes involved, Les Dawson was as much of the old school of wives and mothers-in-law as anyone else and he was brilliant. The exception that proves the rule.
Please, NEVER let this be seen again.
