Been watching a show from the olden days on my Sky TV and it’s really funny but I got some questions.

How old are the men supposed to be? They like the functioning alcoholic lifestyle and live together but not ‘together’ if you see what I mean (I think that sort of thing was a bit ‘RISK A’ in the olden days when it were filmed). My friend Stephen said they’re meant to be about 25 but that’s mental cos Gary Strang looks about 40! I thought they were meant to be a bit older but am not sure how old exactly. Strang has a bird called Dorothy and she looks very old and worn (although she is a nurse so probably long hours and Tory government has took it’s toll on her lol!). The other guy Tony is a bit of a loser and tries it on with the babe downstairs who has a name for sure but I can’t remember it.

What are we saying then people?

EDIT: I Google'd the show and apparently Tony is called Neil Morrissey in real life. That's such an obscure name. Anyone know if he's related to that miserable vegan from the 1980s goth music scene?

I don't know what that word means but it's an olden days sitcom right at the start of the so called 'lad culture' (where Chris Evans came on TV all the time and porny magazines were all the rage such as FHM, FML, NUTS MAG, JAZZMAG and MAXIM. It was a time really different to nowadays when everything is transed gender.

That was the phantom of the opera pretending to be Frank who I believe was meant to be a gay man trapped in a conventional marriage (the norm of the days). It's quite similar in the belly laughing scenes of a hopeless man actually but I'd never put 2 and 2 together before. Bread was the true genius of that era and I think Dexy's Midnight Ramblers did the theme music.

We call belly laughs pilsner grumps. It's a shocking surprise to me that frank was gay. Oh Betty will be devastated.

Thank you Ruddy. That's it. She was quite nice back then I think but didn't she do the Pete Burns 'lip up fatty' soon after? That was a shame.

That's it. Sky plus button and ta da! There are loads of them now inside my television set. This is going to be a good evening! Got another one called the British Empire which also looks side splitting.

That's the one with the former singer from Blur in it. It was also long before Ash did the Lip O'Suction procedure though.
