The comedy is quite dated nowadays
I love Ronnie Barker, he is one of my favourite actors/comedians in sitcoms such as Porridge and Going Straight, but I don't find The Two Ronnies as funny as I hoped I would. I was desperate to enjoy it, but I found myself forcing a laugh at jokes that just weren't funny to me. Ronnie Corbett's style of comedy has never really been my cup of tea, I find it rather dry and predictable, but Ronnie Barker usually says some unexpected things off-script that work brilliantly and give a sense of natural genuine comedy, and unfortunately he just doesn't do that in The Two Ronnies.
Even though this comedy isn't my cup of tea, I've rated it 7/10 because there are some classic comedy sketches in here such as the "four candles / fork handles" sketch.
