20 March 1999 | sammyb
unfunny sitcom
This series is set in the mid-Seventies and is not the only British sitcom at the moment to derive "humour" from Seventies fashions.Unfortunately this is not as amusing as some in television would think.Certain parts of the dramatic content i.e. the young boys attempts to fit in at school are quite moving but the comedy is uninspired particularly as Brian Conley's sadistic teacher seems to be acting in a different series to everyone else.The pacing is quite slow which is very surprising as much of the series is grotesque caricature and farce.Amanda Holden is a beautiful but dull object for our affections and struggles with a Black Country accent.
