Are You Being Served?

Postby kancutlawns » Sat Jun 09, 2018 12:48 pm

Watching this on Gold and it’s bloody hilarious. Truly timeless. Peacock’s a cold steward, Rumbold’s a jolly old slaphead and as for Mrs Slocombe’s pussy. Loving the double entendre and unbridled smut. It really hasn’t aged. Why don’t they make comedy like this and no leado we don’t want a remake.

It's interesting watching some of the old sitcoms with the benefit of hindsight. "On the Buses" makes interesting viewing, in that Blakey is now my hero because he wants to get the fucking buses out, for the benefit of the paying customer, whereas the other two skiving fuckers can just fuck off.
As for "Are You Being Served?", Christ! How many layers of management do you need in a department store? :-)

As an observation, if you want to know how people dressed, and furnished their houses, don't look at films, look at sitcoms.

And of course Mr.Grace's secretary Candy Davis was a bonus.

Young Mr Grace? He was in his nineties with a dodgy ticker and a randy old fucker to boot.

John Inman and his classic 'I'm gaaaay' catchphrase. Wendy Richard. The baldy fella. Mollie Sugden's fanny. Wonderful times.

One reason why they can't do it properly again.It'd be seen as sexist, and jokes involving John Inman would be homophobic. Mrs Slocombe might have a penis these days too, and there are no mixed race faces in there.

Of course only tiny minority of people actually think like this but it's the prevailing mood of our time and if it's on the BBC they'd probably ruin it with unfunny PC rubbish rather than realise it's supposed to be a comedy.

If they wanted to ruin it completely they could put Matt Forde in it.
