| From Good Beginnings to Farce
This series broke new ground. It had regular boob shots and saucy story lines. A bit like those cheeky seaside postcards that the Brits were famous for. The characters were stereotypical and overdrawn, from the whinging pom Alf through to the cod 'foreign accent' of Aldo the shopkeeper and not forgetting the prissy Arnold Feather or linguistically challenged Dorrie Evans.

Never to be taken seriously, this series was a harmless way to spend a bit of time in front of the box. The problems began when the writers began to take it seriously and ever more strained and complicated story lines were introduced and the series ending dying a long, slow and painful death.

If ever there is an opportunity to watch any episodes, avoid any that took up the story after the bombing of the delicatessen. It would have a blessed relief for all concerned if the bomb had removed the entire building with all its characters and not just the one or two that were written out of the series.
