Harry H. Corbett,
In this classic bittersweet sitcom from award-winning writer David Renwick, Richard Wilson plays the short-tempered Victor Meldrew, a man who doesn't suffer fools gladly, and to his misery frequently encounters them as well as enduring endless misfortune. His long-suffering wife Margaret (Annette Crosbie) struggles to cope with his rants against the world and the bad luck that befalls them. The hilarity that ensures is underpinned by a poignant, often darker edge little seen in most sitcoms.Written by
I happened across this show quite by accident whilst channel surfing on Christmas Eve a couple of years back. I came across this show featuring a couple in their sixties: him a catankerous old codger who seemed to be a magnet for misfortune and trouble; her, his wife who suffered his constant moanings and groanings. Through the plot, which involved all manner of mayhem, I simply could not stop laughing. Unfortunately, it was only a one-off to fill time on the night: I did not hear of more episodes of this show until six months or more later. However, it again disappeared after only a handful of episodes, until six weeks ago it returned to my television screen. However, tonight I have just watched the final episode (ever), which leads me to believe its seasons were very short indeed.
Anyone who has not seen this show will do well to find videos of it. And those who have not seen the finale for the show, watch it. From the first time you hear Victor Meldrew's famous signature quote, "I do not BELIEVE this!", you'll be hooked. 10/10
