Did You Know?


The rarely seen cat of Madge Burrows became a meme during the shows run, with the character of Ted Bullpitt claiming he 'loved the bloody cat', he spent much of the series tormenting the cat until the cat's unseen death in the final episode after it was eaten by the dog. See more »

Pickle me Grandmother! This thing sucked
7 September 2002 | by MuchiSee all my reviews

This show was pathetic! Possibly the only plus to Bullpitt being made is that it was such a spectacular failure that hopefully no one will ever let Gary Reilly make another sitcom again. After Brass Monkeys, Hey Dad and My Two Wives you'd think that network executives would have realised that his shows simply aren't funny!
