Set in a no name pub somewhere in England, it was a brilliant sitcom full of satire such as the guv's speech on proper food after insulting the Germans and the Koreans "bangers and mash...the genitals and offal of a pig mashed up and stuffed into an intestinal sheath...now thats proper food". The amazing catch phrases that sprang up and not bothering to give half the characters proper names such as the old man and up to a point which gave birth to a wonderful line.
(on the phone) Old man: Yes its the old man with no name...at the pub with no name.
It was a sitcom completely unafraid to be non-PC, poking fun at religion and countries whilst making fun of the Guv's small mindedness and ignorance. I believe this to be one of the best sitcoms to ever be made definitely in this day and age. I hope its released on DVD one day.
