    Indeed. wicked writers.
    no spite or vitriol, inclusive wit loving people rather than leftist divisive hate that makes up the majority of bbc out pourings these days.
    And lets not forget John Gilbert Esmonde R,obert Edward Larbey ,,the good life
    a top tv series again full of love for the human condition.

    the only one hubby doesnt have out of those is You Rang M'Lord

    Others he has complete sets of and has enjoyed watching them. I've watched bits and pieces, some I've found funny, others not so much but then I have a strange sense of humour

    My favourite shows I have watched this year during lockdown have been

    Orphan Black - Netflix

    Upload - Amazon Prime

    Little fires everywhere - Amazon Prime

    Good Omens - Amazon Prime

    Just a few recommendations there, I’ve watched so many during lockdown but can’t remember them all off the top of my head!

    Hi,

    Been redosing up on this, with Neflix.

    Actually better than I remember it the first time round on terrestrial TV, 16 years ago..

    Hope you all don't mind me joining the conversation.

    Jaylee, Life on Mars was great as too was the follow up Ashes to Ashes. In fact I preferred the follow up as it's set in the 80's so the music was more familiar to me.

    I've been watching old Only Fools and Horses to keep my spirits up. Watching Del Boy fall through the bar still makes me laugh! Closest to that classic modern day is Lee Mack's Not Going Out. Been watching that as well and it's far funnier than most modern day stuff.

    So few classic comedies these days. compared to the 70's and 80's.

    Hi,

    Being born in the late 60s, I'm a child of the 1970's. I did keep seeing the same maroon coloured Ford Capri parked up in various scenes throughout both seasons of LoM..
    Lol, it was used in a stolen car chase ending on a football pitch? I can image the owner they sourced it from with this period drama.. "don't crash it!"

    So, I was a teen in the 1980's. I missed out on Ashes when it was first aired 12 years ago? Now I've started "firing up the Quatro." :)

    oh please do join in, the more the merrier

    I bought hubby the box set of Only Fools, he loves it. (see previous posts about his BBC sitcom collection). I'm new to most of these tv shows as didnt watch much tv as a child/ teen. I only really started watching tv when I was pregnant with my eldest girl in the late 80's.

    And to be fair I dont watch much tv now, just the odd thing that grasps my attention.

    OMG I loved that series! It is my childhood and adolescence on a plate, since I grew up in Stockport at exactly that time period. Those orange buses are the ones I went to school on and I recognise a lot of the places - Stockport Council offices, and I think, the Victoria baths in Manchester were the morgue. But in fact a lot of the period locations are really the same place filmed from different angles, I guess a lot of the old Stockport is long gone.

    I kinda liked the premise of Orphan black. Then kinda lost interest, like I did with "Lost."

    Jessica Jones. Was great. As a sort of "anti-hero." David Tennant as Killgrave. (The purple man.) Just nasty..

    I'm hoping that they show the Christmas one again over the festive period. The one where Tom makes Christmas hats out of newspapers and Margot wants the one made out of the Financial Times rather than The Mirror, or similar. As you say easy going gentle humour.

    I've been watching a lot of Only Fools and Horses again. Simply IMO the best comedy ever, although not sure some episodes would get an airing today with some people so easy to offend!

    Just completed Sweet home on Netflix.

    The experience for me was like a George A Romero doing "Attack the block" meets a strange surreal dream i had a couple of years back..
    Can't wait for season 2.
