Comedy at its best
20 February 2015 | by Stewart46217See all my reviews

Ignore the two negative reviews. Both are laughable in themselves. The one quoting the 'Bottom Joke' has simply quoted another review from a website that also hated the comedy. The other, by his own admission has hardly seen it. His description of the show is completely off. the characters do not get drunk all the time and the show is nothing like last of the summer wine.

This comedy gem ran for 11 seasons for a reason. It's great. Here you have two experienced comic actors at there very best. Watch now on you-tube or playback and find out for yourself. Some episodes are less funny than others and we all have a different sense of humor so it might not be to everyone's taste. But for me It's warm, engaging and laugh out loud funny and credit for that must go to the two incredible leads.
