TV has never been the same since great showmen like Daniels were got rid of.


Yeah, it's got far better. For example, it's been fucking years since Russ Abbot was last on TV in something not Last of the Summer Wine. These are days I like living in.

It's weird because I'd often watch these shows because there was fuck all else on, but I can't remember hardly anything about them. London's Burning, I probably watched the entire run, but I couldn't tell you a single character name. One of them looked a little bit like Dennis Wise, that's all I know.

I remember watching "watching" and hating everything bar the theme tune.


Spitting Image was a gem though, a pure gem.




1900 Last of the Summer Wine

Howard finds himself in hot water over his dangerous liason with Marina.


could describe about 579 Summer Wine episodes. the only thing more vague would be "Compo rolls down in a hill in/on or falling off something"
