In Season 2 Episode 3 (1992), Lionel comments on Rocky's lifestyle, in that "the way he goes about life, he's only got two or three years at best." In Season 3 Episode 2 (1993), Lionel is on the phone with Rocky's doctor, Dr. Field, and tells Jean that "the old fool will be lucky if he lasts another year." In Season 3 Episode 10, Madge admits to knowing that "Rocky isn't supposed to have very much time." Nothing else was mentioned about Rocky's health. Ironically, in real life, Joan Sims (who played Rocky's wife, Madge) died in 2001. Also, she was not featured in Season 8, which aired in 2000, even though she was referenced. See more »
My mother and I have watched this on PBS every Sunday night for the past several years. And we both absolutely love it. The characterizations are perfect, the characters credible and amiable, the dialog VERY well written, the entire series reliably funny and likable and just plain delightful.
My mother and I always say at the end of each episode something like this: "They're such nice people ... wouldn't it be wonderful if we could have them for neighbors?" How many characters in either movie or TV can that be said of? I can't find a rating opportunity for this one. Darn. I would give it a 9 out of 10.
