No mention of Citizen Smith?

Oh yes! Coupling! I will never forget the Giggle Loop.




Blackadder is another I find unwatchable. Also Mr. Bean was funny when I was a child, now I want to be the one to euthanase him.

I wasn't a big fan of Ronnie Barker sitcoms, I just don't think I got the humour at the time, the same with Rising Damp and other 70s and 80s stuff including OFAH!

I think that the 90s and 00s and the fall out of the alternative comedy scene probably provided the most memorable comedies for me! Men behaving Badly, Coupling (I love Jeff 'Cleft'), Friends (lets face it, the writing was inspired!), The Royle Family, The Office, Two Pints of Lager, Black Books and the League of Gentlemen to name just a few!


Oh yeah.. Black books! How could i forget that? I have the entire series on box set with loads of extras. Fantastic!

Must get them out and give them a watch again. :D

I was bored and decided to update my signature but i couldnt think of anything to put, so i decided to just put Bollocks!

I loved Two Pints, Men Behaving Badly, The Office and of course Black Adder.

An extremely underrated sitcom that rarely produced a bad episode and made a star of Robert Lindsay.

:rofl:


Love Thy Neighbour was a bit similar to Till Death Us Do Part in some ways in that it contrasted a bigoted, ignorant white bloke against his more cultured black neighbour.

Rigsby in Rising Damp was another example.

Though it seemed to me that a large portion of the population still agreed with the bigot's views at the time and laughed with them rather than at them. But that's a long time ago.

Both of those you mentioned were also total crap though. :D

I never assumed you were being serious. :rofl:

Though there are some around who like any old shite - like that Miranda thing. Ewww. It gets plenty of viewers for some odd reason. And Mrs Brown's Boys - well it seems to suit some. :confused:

I never got into Rising Damp, but did like Love They Neighbour and On the Buses.


Now here's a sitcom you pensioners might remember...... cant' remember it's name, but it featured a family who made pickles and one fo the catchphrases was "Has he been?"

You were obviously easily pleased in those days if you found those two progs even slightly amusing. :): Rising Damp was much better.

Ah, pickle factory. That was another poor ITV offering which I never watched much of thankfully. Jimmy Jewel (who my dad always told me was fond of young boys - maybe they'll get 30 police officers to investigate him soon?) and Hylda Baker are left a pickle factory with very old staff. Much hilarity ensues (or maybe not actually).

I saw Hylda Baker on stage in Blackpool several decades ago, where she had a tall female stooge who never spoke. She would tell things to the audience and try to get the stooge to agree - who kept quiet and Baker would say 'She knows, ya know'. She 'd previously have spent a few minutes asking the stooge 'Have you been ?'

She did the same act on TV until the 60s I think, then got a pension boost by the TV show Nearest and Dearest

p.s. I'm still over three years off state pension age and Wots is probably younger than yourself. :)

Jimmy Jewel and Hylda Baker - Nearest and Dearest! That's it :)

Eli


btw - give it 5 years and you'll be 15 years off state pension age the way Gideon and his band of Bullingdon Bum Boys are going

btw2 - yes I was easily pleased back then :)

My standards must be waning as I watched a whole episode of Trisha today. Saw the first 10 minutes and I had to watch it all. I feel I am underqualified to comment any more on this thread. :doh:

Well he was supposed to be a revolutionary leader with a mass movement, his mass movement consisted of a nerd, a Hells Angel, his girlfriend and a waiter in a Texmex restaurant. I like the one where he steals a tank and then tries to occupy Parliament only to find it's in recess.
