A Wonderfully Funny Episode.
14 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Callum Gee in his review called it "probably the best comedy sequel of all time" & I would entirely agree with that. Glenn Aylett called it "the best sitcom of the 1970's". I cannot agree with that because I must give that accolade to Fawlty Towers, but I would happily give it my nomination as the second best. This particular episode "Affairs & Relations", however, is as funny as any of the best of Fawlty Towers. It is utterly hilarious throughout & plays kind of like a Brian Rix bedroom farce. Bob (Rodney Bewes) & Terry (James Bolam) are on a fishing expedition & get a room in the local small hotel. Here they unexpectedly bump into Bob's wife Thelma's father played by Bill Owen who has a rather attractive secretary with him, Beryl played by Ann Hamilton. Bob would like to believe there is a perfectly good reason why his father-in-law has her in tow. Terry tells him, "There is, he's a randy old sod!". The hotel has employed a sexy barmaid played by Carole Ann Ford who fancies Terry & keeps making suggestive comments to him. When Bob's wife Thelma (Brigit Forsyth) turns up later she gets the wrong end of the stick & thinks something is going on between Bob & Beryl. Thelma doesn't suspect her father at all & she cannot help noticing that Terry cannot remember Beryl's name. It all turns into a really marvellous comic farce. 10/10 with a gold star!.
