    What a good question! I love this show. I must admit, from time to time when things get too serious i'll pop in a disc and laugh with these old, comfortable friends. Let's see, top five:

    1. Oh What A Tangled Web. A masterful exercise in comic timing. The Trial sequence with Mr.Grainger trying to hear with currants in his ears, Captain Peacock attempting to defend himself, Mr. Humphries chiming in, Mr. Grace stealing all the good laughs, and all the rest - which is a classic piece of comedy indeed.

    2. The Clock. which I love because i only have to think of Molllie Sugden doing her drunk thing to start laughing....

    3. Camping In. Sweet as they come.... All the characters sitting around an electric campfire (they've been stranded by a transit strike) and singing "Keep the Home Fires Burning." Wonderful.

    4. A Change is as Good As a Rest. (Which, as fans know, is Jeremy Lloyd's favorite episode) Is likewise a sweet, funny, silly episode - with Captain Peacock protesting that he must wear a propeller on his head, and Mr. Grainger happily getting lost in his world of toy trains....

    5. It Pays to Advertise. Where the company makes their own cinema commecial, and Mr. Lucas tells Mr. Grainger (who's playing Henry the lovable bartender) to arrange his nuts....

    You gotta love these people! I do.
