...but on reflection, are complete turdo
Me and my Girl
please chip in
i used to think it was rubbish when it came out, but i watched a few recently and its bloody funny. also not that often you get a comedy show where the main character doesnt even speak.
This was and still is brilliant.
I associate it with the smell of disinfectant, rainy Sunday afternoons, and death.
the loveable painter and decorator. great dayz
80s sophitication at its suburban shittest.
(used to think it was great because they swore in it)
or maybe MY COMMENT WAS BETTER
Well maybe not shit, but pretty ropey
as was Red Dwarf <awaits backlash>
i can't remember exactly but seem to have some inkling that it was good.
i might youtube it later
one where the leisure centre burnt down, one where a water tank fell on Brittas and he 'died' (only to be reconstructed for the next series), others I can't remember now.
'Curse of the Tiger Women' is the final episode in 1997. This ending claims all seven series were part of a dream that Brittas is having on his way to the job interview for manager of the leisure centre. It is an ending that is regarded as poor by many critics and viewers
pretty long fucking dream
Apparently it was supposed to end with the water tank one but the BBC got a whole new team of writers in to ressurect it a couple of years later.
without him it'd be fucking awful, but with him it's great!
Not sure if I ever really enjoyed it, but I remember watching it on Sunday evenings.
Only Fools and Horses. I used to think it was really boring. Now I see how great it is.
I still hate Only Fools And Horses
This Time Next Year (is when you'll like it).
(still holding out vain hope for getting the box set for my birthday)
Best US comedy of the nineties.
My Two Dads
Boy Meets World
but not in a 'comedy' sense. The jokes are pretty weak but some of the plots and writing are excellent just as a TV show rather than a comedy.
the laughter tracks and all the plastic laddishness and coy euphemisms for swearing leave it feeling a lot more gentle than it seemed at the time, but it's also a lot more obvious and less smart than it maybe felt back in the day. I imagine it could be remade really well, but I guess it seems faintly pointless starting again. Very 90s show.
also that one with Dennis Waterman and a chaffeur fella
Robert Lindsay (from the ace GBH and shit My Family) used to go out with the woman from The Upper Hand, until he left her for Rosemary Ford (from Come Dancing and The Generation Game).
I loved that as a kid. Never seen it since.
Dad's Army is stil great though, isn't it?
is still better than most current comedy.
ooh blimey charlie, butt butt, ding ding
Anton Rogers finest moment
I used to love that. No idea why. I remember his missus had a craving for bombay mix when pregnant. I think that was the funniest part?
HA HA HA THAT'S THE NAME OF SOME PAPER
(I just checked, Bella Emberg is still alive)
not rubbish, but certainly nowhere near as good as i thought it was.
Saw some episodes over Christmas and found them funny.
Nah, me neither.
however the first part is brilliant :D
and Monty Python. Coolest Dad ever.
NONE of these are 'complete turdo'
look up there pal ^
Little and Large
That man with the posh (terrifying) puppet
Bernie thingy and his ostrich
Fucking hell the 80s were grim.
*It's a puppppppetttt!* He was shocking.
I used to think it was HILARIOUS. Now I'm worried he was one of those racist comedians like Jim Davidson. Was he a racist comedian?
My grandad certainly was a racist so I think Brian Connley might have been.
Ray Allen and Lord Charles, and he was fucking briliant you philistine.
Harry & Paul, Smith & Jones, Smack the Pony...
...but I imagine 2.4 Children was completely terrible.
It's still good.
It's shockingly bad.
Just saw some repeats recently, still laughed.
(and any number of 6pm Channel 4 shows - hurry up and make the tea mum!)
hanging with mr cooper
I didn't think any of these were good though (with the exception of Boy meets world)
I've not seen it since, but I imagine it is indeed turdo.
Also probably goes for Clarissa Explains It All.
Kenan and Kel
The Brittas Empire
with David Threlfall and John Simm - anyone ever see that apart from me?
wouldn't have been able to name it though.
It's possible it's still good... maybe.
but had absolutely no idea those were the actors involved. Fuck me that's an impressive (retrospective) cast for a mediocre sit-com.
PS I'm going to stick up for 'Allo 'Allo. It's broad, silly vaudeville humour that's dated somewhat but it's still funny.
a bunch of people remembered sketches (some of which were actually from 'newman and baddiel in pieces') but watch it now and it mainly just falls flat on its arse. definitely one for the 'you had to be there and had to be 13' list.
fucking creepy intro
featuring Keith Barron and that woman Gwen thingy, face like a bag of spanners.
and no one has pointed out that Allo Allo wasn't actually shit.
As you were.
But you and the other Charlie are obviously correct
