The Lovers

Show Summary

Welcome to The Lovers guide at TV Tome.

A comical struggle of a young couple who are so involved with the gameplay they think is expected in a relationship that despite really caring about each other they are constantly driving each other away and then getting back together again.

Beryl has big dreams of a white wedding to her "Geoffrey Bobbles Bon Bon" which prevents his dreams of any "Percy Filth" before marriage to get very far. Beryl's constant alternating between persuading him into marriage any way she can and fighting him off leaves Geoffrey very confused, and the only person who seems to understand any of what is going on is Beryl's ever-present mother. Despite obviously adoring each other, Geofrey always returns alone to the lifesixe Bardot cutout in his bedroom, and Beryl to the framed photograph of Paul McCartney on her bedside table.

  • Wost comedy ever

    The absolute worst comedy I have ever seen. The cast are great in other sitcoms such as Richard Beckinsale is in Porridge and Rising Damp, Paula Wilcox in Man About The House and various other sitcoms but in this they are not as good. There is no humour in this sitcom. The story plots are poor because they didn't do anything interesting such as like in On The Buses they had story plots like a bus blowing up, tv blowing up, bus crashing into the back of rhe shed, a wedding plot and other various plots. Bottom had a ferris wheel, camping, a story about gas and also other strong things. This sitcom has none of that, I can understand in one way but in Citizen Smith there was a love relationship between Wolfie and Shirley in seasons 1 and 2 but the sitcom still had strong story plots. This sitcom just didn't have any story plots that thrilled me. The scenary for this sitcom was poor because the sets looked fake. This for me is the worst comedy ever because the others I have seen are a lot better.moreless
