| Good Old British Farce
Recently I came across some old episodes of this series and I have to say I was so delighted in watching them again that I tracked down several others.

I was a little too young at the time of original air to pay much attention to the comedy but I particularly remembered the daughters, both gorgeous girls whose appeal even a ten year old boy noticed. It was a nice moment then to relive some of my youth growing up in the late 60's to the mid 70's and this series in particular sums up all that confidence and good feeling very ably. Yes, the father is an upper middle class twit, and it shows.. but it nevertheless reflects a much happier much more innocent time for the UK complete with its fashions and attitudes., yes it is slightly slapstick and at times a tad twee but that just adds to flavour If you're a fan of the era I'd wholeheartedly recommend this it's not rip-roaringly funny but it's gentle and wry sense of humour will make you smile In fact, the only slight downsides are when Cargill seems to stare a little too long at the girls bottoms or chests, not that I can blame him as they're usually dressed in hot pants etc. But it does seem a little seedy given their respective ages. That being said it's not very apparent and some might not even notice as my SO didn't until I pointed it out via the still button.. Not having this function when the show was originally aired I imagine some might have noticed and forgotten it at the next comedic moment..

All in all though a good bet for a wet Sunday afternoon if you can track it down.
