A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Just got in, turned on the television to canned laughter, the BBC1 tv guide states 'Sitcom. Gerald and his H+S team identify an irregular speed bump on the streets of Baselricky. At home, he contends with bathroom hoggers'

Why is it on BBC1 ?

Why is it on after the watershed ?

Will it improve ?

(Could it get worse ?)

Turgid. Is this written by the same Ben Elton who did Blackadder?

It's got universally slammed by the newspaper TV critics and the trailer that I saw was enough to put me off. For once, I'm grateful I'm an hour ahead of UK time...... and to answer CH's query, yes I think it really could get worse....

Why is it on at all?

I was unlucky enough to accidentally catch a few minutes of a scene set in toilet. Calling it toilet humour is doing toilets an injustice.

I turned it off shortly after I posted as it clearly wasn't going to improve.

If it really is Ben Elton wot wrote it then the money from the Queen stuff has eaten his creativity

I am struggling to think of the last decent sitcom the BBC made, indeed the only funny British sitcom I can think of still being made is Peep show on Channel 4.

I gave it a good eight minutes - under extreme duress after three - then decided to go for a random search on Youtube.

Found this on the second go.
