It has to be the absolutely rotten "Two Pints of Lager and a packet of Crisps"
Drawing close up the rear.
Both programmes seem to be inexplicably popular. I mean, My Family is so old-fashioned and just....crap!
...repeated week after week drawn out over far too many series...
And every week the plot is the same: Robert Lindsay gets angry. It's a shame because I think Lindsay actually CAN act, yet chooses the easy route by pedalling this pap.
That is unforgiveably shite, I grant you.
But it's not even in the same league as 'babes in the wood'
realising the absurdity of it, characters getting abducted by aliens etc
i always know it as lowest common denominator shite, though.
Can you spot the guy that's suddenly realised his career is going to be ruined by typecasting?
The fairly recent vehicle for the "hilarious" Lee Mack was also very very shite
and the disabled Asian kid
**END OF THREAD**
That show no longer exists in the spacetime continuum. It has been stricken from the record. Like Highlander 2.
The War At Home still exists however. And it is the worst sitcom in the world.
Also has to be a contender
and having had to tolerate the droves of pensioner tourists I second this with vehemance.
Babes in the Wood
My Family (9 million viewers? Fucking hell)
All About Me - I think it was called that, the horrendously misjudged one with Jasper Carrott (managing to tread all over his past as a decent comedian) and Meera Syal.
What was that? I don't remember the jasper carrot one either!
Reading a Charlie Brooker column where he tore into the show, was pretty funny.
or the nicholas lyndhurst my family knock off
or my hero after ardal o'hanlon left the show
the worst idea for a sitcome
....was also rather, er, of it's time shall we say. It was the britpop sitcom for the loaded generation! haha
