Entertaining British Comedy from the 70s. I have two of the series on DVD. Frank's character can get frustrating at times and it is something the viewer just has to get used to. Some of his stunts were very impressive indeed. Michele Dotrice is amazing with her unflappability ! One of the best is where Frank has to act in a play. Certainly one of the better comedies of the seventies and anyway a cut above all the rubbish comedy ( if you can call it comedy ) nowadays !
