For years my Dad loved this show, but I just didn't get it. Then, one day, I watched and I loved! Now I own the show on DVD and I'm a big fan! This show is very very funny, from Mainwarring's pompous stupidty to Pike's inocence, everything went well together in this show.
The acting in this series is very funny, with my favourite characters been Walker and Pike. This truely shows what was once the great era of British sitcoms: when you look at the tripe that Britian churns out today and compare it to this, it is embarrasing! "The Green Green Grass" for instance is consistently unfunny, whereas "Dad's Army" is a guarrented laugh!
If you are a fan of other classic BBC sitcoms (e.g. "Blackadder", "Porridge", "Fawlty Towers" etc) then I would reccomend this show. Then again, if you are like me and mainly enjoy US shows, then you will also find this hilarious!
A great show by all accounts!
