Goofs

When Mr Grainger takes relief in the fact "We've got our own counters back", you can clearly see that he is not wearing his glasses as they are, presumably, still in Mrs Slocombe's handbag. But when young Mr Grace says that the men's department will be re-decorated, Mr Grainger complains and his glasses suddenly re-appear on his face. See more »

Feuding fun at Grace Brothers
28 August 2016 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The decorators are in, and the men are first to benefit, much to the annoyance of the ladies. The situation means that both teams must share a single counter, seemingly only Captain Peacock can add a degree of calm between the two feuding departments.

It's full of smutty underwear jokes and double entendres. If bawdy humour is what you like, then you will love this, you can't possibly watch this and not chuckle. Once again it's a case of the ladies tackling sexual inequality, but once again they win the day.

Series three is very strong and this is one of the funniest, the show seemed to go in a very differently direction from here on in 8/10.
