Three good reviews. It's a classic that deserves a reappraisal! I remember it being laugh out loud funny but it was a long time ago, so I could be confusing it with some other obscure 80s comedy TV series, for example Thompson (1988) which I also thought was a hoot, and no one else did. Snakes and Ladders bears a strong resemblance to the concept introduced in Doomsday (2008) but with more laughs. The main reason I remember it is not to do with the quality of the acting or story, most of which I can hardly recall, but the fact it ended so abruptly. I don't recall it receiving particularly bad reviews at the time, but one week it was on and the next it was gone. It seemed to end mid series. One of life's unanswered mysteries.
