  • The name of Bucket will live forever!

    Keeping up appearances was just about the last of the classic British sitcom. Hyacynth was of course embraced by viewers across the world, and almost resulting in an Americanised version - Thank god that never happened!

    Hyacynth helped create our sterotype of the nagging social-climbing middle-aged housewife, as well as the subserviant suffering husband. Put simple she became a household name.

    KUP did have a habit of being repetitive, but it also had this habit of always being funny! The stunts and often hard to time right scenes - for a group of oldies on a budget of a British TV sitcom, was always well recieved, Highlights being:

    1) Hyacynth in a Fun House
    2) Hyacynth being taken for a run...By a dog
    3) Hyacynth and Richard on a boat and falling out
    4) Hyacynth catching the flying Royal Doulton
    5) The Mad-dash on the QE2

    Keeping up Appearances is a fun and original show - Yes it does use tried and tested comedy techniques - But British Sitcoms dont run as long as this one did (By the way, it only ended because the actors wanted out) if their not popular.
