You can't go wrong with Celeb. On the strength of the cast alone, it is worth watching. They all play their parts wonderfully, sending up the very lifestyle of obscene wealth that they are portraying. There is of course lots of cliché and its very predictable, but this self mockery seems to have missed by many who claim it to be unfunny. I am sure there are quite a few ageing rock stars with young "dolly bird" WAGs doing exactly the same sort of thing as Gary Bloke. There were also some absolutely classic moments, especially dimwitted son Troy trying to read a book at the table without concussing himself! Also, Amanda Holden, who is gorgeous anyway really looked fab and played Gary's bimbo wife to perfection.
In Britain, loads of really lame 70s commercial TV comedies are pouring onto DVD but some of the great BBC comedies of the 90s, like Bonjour La Classe, Honey for Tea and Celeb are still not available. It took 15 years before the wonderful Joking Apart came out on DVD -- come on everyone, stand up for this great sitcom and give it the audience it deserves.
