Hippies was excellent!
2 March 2006 | by ed-686See all my reviews

I loved Hippies, really very, very funny. Best episode, 'Psycho Sociology, art classes one' or the 'Festival' episode. I can't understand why this series was not so popular. I suppose it lived directly in the shadow of Father Ted, so it was inevitable people would rate it against FT.It was also criticised because it was nothing like the sixties - but hey, it was a comedy, not a social commentary. 10 out of 10 for gags and great situations. Now, when's the DVD coming out?? There's a petition online to get it brought out, link can be found here: http://www.petitiononline.com/hippies1/petition.html

Please all fans of hippies go onto sign the petition!
