Frank Spencer is more than just a complete klutz. Everything he touches falls apart, and he can't keep a job for more than a day. The only thing that keeps him going is his long-suffering wife Betty, who somehow manages to cope with his disaster-prone life-style.Written by
In The RAF Reunion episode during the psychological testing scene, Fulton Mackay can clearly be seen desperately trying not to laugh as he argues with Frank after he has put the wrong shapes in the board. See more »
Cliffhanger (Series 2). When Frank is climbing over the front of the car to get to the boot a rope is visible through the rear window that is clearly holding the car or holding Frank in some way. See more »
I loved this comedy when I was a child and I still love it now as I watch it over again. Although quite tacky and extremely dated, I love this! It's so much fun to watch and although tacky, it's also very watchable. You'll laugh out loud as the accident-prone Frank Spencer launches from one disaster to another! Michele Dotrice is good as Betty as well. In my opinion this is Michael Crawford's best work simply because it's so funny watching him as Frank and him doing his own stunts when he's skating, driving, falling, flying etc! Great British comedy with loads of slapstick situations and extremely fun to watch! 9/10 - Fantastic!
