The Heat Generation!
21 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

With Stan and Arthur gone, and Blakey in residence, you'd think that life in the Butler household would be all peace and tranquility. Er, no. There's no hot water on tap, as Blakey discovers when he tries to shave. Jack offers him a good deal on an emersion heater, but it turns out to have been stolen from the bus depot. Blakey and Jack endeavour to get the heater installed, and wind up breaking the stopcock in the street, causing a flood of near-Biblical proportions...

The first post-Reg Varney episode actually isn't too bad; one gets the impression that Blakey's lines were originally intended for Stan. No sooner is Blakey around that kitchen table than he starts insulting Olive in much the same way Stan and Arthur used to. Blakey and Jack trying to fit the heater isn't nearly as funny as Stan and Jack would have been. Had Reg been in this, it would have been a great little episode.

Fuinniest moment - Blakey and Jack turning off the stopcock in the street. When a policeman comes their way, they try to make it look as though they are dancing!
