BBC sketch show that while continuing to show the misadventures of a series of popular characters now also introduces a slew of new oddballs and misfits for us to enjoy including Tory Boy and The Lovely Wobbly Randy Old Ladies.
The series originally ran from October 16th 1989 until December 24th 1994. With a special flashback episode, The Chigwell Years, broadcast on March 3rd 1996. And the series returned on May 26th 1997 until the last episode on the December 24th 1998. It was then reincarnated in 2014 See more »
I can't praise this enough. One of the greatest sitcoms ever.
I loved this show as a kid and now thanks to the fans and their petitions to have the DVD's released, I've had a chance to see it again in all it's glory and I still love it. Brilliant stuff.
Modern sitcoms just can't compare. Pauline Quirke,Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph were perfect as the three leads and the dialogue was top notch. The humour has not dated one bit, it still seems fresh, probably offensive to the over sensitive politically correct.
Some of the episodes are filled with non-stop funny lines, so much so I have to rewind it back sometimes to catch a line I've missed because I have been laughing so hard. The biggest compliment to the writers and the performers is how it stayed grounded in reality in many series. And this was right from the very first episode. It was never afraid to have long gaps without laughter or to become quite sad at times.
There's so many classic episodes and situations, that it's impossible to list them all. It was getting millions of viewers in the years it was on TV but it's kind of a forgotten show now which is sad, especially when the vastly overrated Only Fools and Horses gets continuous praise. This show is a gem that should be re-discovered. You'll fall in love with the characters, laugh with them and feel for them. Cheers to the writers and creators Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran for this gem. 10/10.
