Now we get **** browns boys, my family and a shit load of “reality” stuff. Did all the good writers die? Depressing.deadkennySubscriber
It was funny for a bit but then I grew out of it and realised it’s just the same jokes and plot every episode. It overdid it and went on way too long.
It’s the same as Are You Being Served, Ain’t Half Hot Mum, Hi-de-Hi. Same innuendo jokes each week, tedious after a while. Guess what? Same creators inc Allo Allo. That said, they did make Dad’s Army, and while repetitive again, it was a lot more funny.
Blackadder, Father Ted, Young Ones, Fawlty Towers, Porridge, Open All Hours… million times better than all of these put together. That’s not to say they don’t make me chuckle at times.
Only Fools, is better but likewise just went on too long. Worse is Gold has destroyed it for me as it’s just on 24/7.Posted 3 years agoprawnySubscriber
I’m learning that Cartoons aimed at young kids is where a lot of the decent comedy writers are working now. I quite often find myself leaving the kids TV on when they’ve gone to bed and watching Gravity Falls, Pickle and Peanut and Phineas and Ferb.
The main channels are either crap or reality crap 👿Posted 3 years agoPJM1974Member
Kenny Everett, the man was revered as a comedy god in the playground on Monday mornings, judging by the imitations. Somehow, we were allowed to watch his antics along with the gyrations of Hot Gossip, but the Young Ones was way too naughty for the majority of ten year olds in my school.
Allo Allo was definitely best when Helga was cavorting around in her Gastapo basque.Posted 3 years ago
