1 behind you; I used to love this. That said I can't remember much about it so I'll leave it behind me and just keep the vague warm memory. Its probably shockingly poor as an adult viewer.

Well i've got a few years on you lot and even I can't remember it that well. I know it was quite funny but it ended in '79.

my god if i never see this again it will be too soon

Sometimes these shows haven't been repeated on the mainstream channels for a reason. My boxset of the Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin springs to mind...very funny in the 70's but pretty dated now.

I saw an episode on ITV 7 or something this week, and it was funnier than I remember. I thought it would be rubbish too, but Brian Murphy and Yootha Joyce were very good - excellent comedy timing.

Not sure I'd pay for a box set, but I would watch it again.

Make you right in principle though not in relation to Perrin which in my opinion is every bit as brilliant now as it was then.

saw a few episodes on tv and liked it not as good as man about the house

Honestly....It is brilliant BUY it.

I bought this last year & my Son & I sit down & watch it - He thinks it is hilarious at the tender age of 6 :giggle:

I loved this show, ITV2 or ITV3 have been re running them lately in the afternoons.

It was ITV3

She Battled alcoholism during her life, a battle she ultimately lost. She was said to be on a bottle of vodka a day. She died of hepatitis four days after her 53rd birthday. The actor, Brian Murphy, who played her on-screen husband in "George & Mildred" was at her bedside.

Brian Murphy, doesn't look a day older when you see him now! Mind you, he looked old back then!

Classic series. Got it last ime it was posted, and still chuffed with the purchase.

hot :thumbsup:

Classic comedy which has stood the test of time. Yootha Joyce is one of my all time favourites.

What ever happened to Tristram?

TOTALLY agree! I didn't much like it when I was young and it was on first time round, but I've caught three episodes in the past couple of weeks. I really thought it would be terrible, but I've enjoyed it MUCH more than I did back then! I agree with you that Brian Murphy and Yootha Joyce are both excellent, I'm considering buying this set.

This is one of the few 70s sitcoms that still works today

Don't remember this, may have been selective channel hopping of my parents (even if they did have a long stick!) :whistling:

The usual reason is that that the people that run and make televison these days are up their own khyber. Either they wouldn't know a good comedy if it hit them in the face or no one writes them anymore.

So they fill their output with those list programmes about how terrible TV was then "Barbara Windsor dressed as a schoolgirl what we were thinking of! " usually spouted by some z lister who wasn't even born then.

That doesn't stop them regularly showing Carrry On's and filling up there other channels with these sort of comedies and when they get stuck for something new what do they do they remake Reggie Perrin. If they had the calibre of comedians there were around then Ronnie Barker, Leonard Rossiter, Yootha Joyce etc. they would probably remake a load more. Or if they really have to make something new they make... Life On Mars/Ashes to Ashes set in the 70's/80's full of the same sort of language as these comedies (which they apologise for at the begining of each episode) and surprise its hugely popular

That said this isn't Premier League but apart from YJ honourable mention to Sheila Fearn from the Likely Lads bright, witty sixties face, friend of lennon who should have been used more on TV
