    Dave Allen at Large

    Follow
    BBC Two (ended 1976)
    Stand up (or rather sit down) comedy accompanied by traditional sketches orchestrated by Irish comedian Dave Allen and his assembled group of actors. The show was very popular in the UK in the 1970s and was exported to the US where it became a minor success after being shown intermittently on American public television or as late-night filler on the local networks. Dave Allen's relaxed style of delivering stand up comedy remaining seated while enjoying a cigarette and having a glass of whiskey remains unique to this day. A few of his most popular recurring sketch characters include Robin Hood, King Arthur, Sherlock Holmes, James the Faithful Retainer, a Mexican Revolutionist and the Pope. Please note: These episode descriptions are based on how Dave Allen At Large was first run in the USA. When Dave first ran, he had thirty episodes and two specials at forty-five minutes each. The series was later edited and re-worked to fifty episodes at thirty minutes. When the original unedited episodes are finally made available to the public, this series will be updated accordingly.moreless

    BBC Two (ended 1998)
    Welcome to the Game On! guide at TV.com. This situation comedy related the adventures and frustrations of three flat-sharing twenty-somethings. Matthew (Ben Chaplin, Neil Stuke), the landlord, is a fantasist and bully, intolerant of ginger people and students, and whose severe agoraphobia means he cannot leave the flat. Martin (Matthew Cottle) is a red-headed bank clerk, whose insecurities and passivity make him a doormat for Matthew, whom he has known since school. Mandy (Samantha Janus) is an old friend of Martin's older sister. Attractive and sexually promiscuous, she seeks validation through a series of short-lived sexual liaisons. In the second series Martin finally gets a girlfriend in the form of Clare, a student nurse, while Mandy introduces Matthew to Jason, a psychologist, in an attempt to address her flatmates phobia. In the third series Mandy finally finds love, and gets engaged to her boss, Archie. Neil Stuke, who lost out to Ben Chaplin when the show was first cast, replaced him in the role of Matthew from the second series. The theme tune is "Where I Find My Heaven" by the Gigolo Aunts.moreless

    The year is 2000 and the new Millennium brings a flurry of nostalgia shows looking back at the past century. BBC2 gave us I Love 1970s (also known as I Love The Seventies), a ten part hour long series with each episode focusing on a particular year. Celebrities, fans and those being featured were interviewed among a collection of vintage clips and newly recorded 'retro' style clips recreating the era. Each episode was presented by someone connected to the particular year and that star also recorded an intro for a film that was broadcast afterward. BBC2 also used a new special ident for the initial broadcast - a seventies style lava lamp that created the '2' logo. The series was a success and spawned two sequel series, I Love 1980s and I Love 1990s, specials and a US series with the same name.moreless

    This is a sitcom/talk show. The Kumars are an asian family who have their own talk show! Sanjeev Kumar, the host, talks to the guests while his family asks questions! Sanjeev who is a very big attention-seeker and keeps thinking he's such a handsome professional talk show host is a loser, really. His father, Ashwin, is the show's producer and is always interested in business and money. In interviews, he would say these pointless stories to the celebrities with no punchline. Sanjeev's mother, Madhuri, loves having guests around and always offers food. She usually asks questions about the guest's family or love life. But the real star of the show is Sushila, Sanjeev's gran who likes to ask cheeky questions and flirts with the handsome male guests. The Kumars had a No 1 single! With Gareth Gates that is. It was a cover of "Spirit in the sky". It was for Comic relief and was at number 1 for 3 weeks. Gareth did the singing while the Kumars commentate over it.moreless
