SO BORING IT'S HARDLY BEARABLE
23 September 2018 | by jplatt01See all my reviews

Perfect example of typical British TV from the 1970s. Overwritten, overacted, under produced and under-directed. Several annoying 'regular' Brits talking and talking and talking, all of whom seem to think the goings on are much more shocking and funny than any modern audience would. Basically a videotaped play, with competent actors, and poor, regional theater level production values. If you like that sort of thing, enjoy.
