Generally awful despite the star power of the writers and cast.
4 December 2018 | by khunkrumarkSee all my reviews

1974 comedy about an enthusiastic accountant who thinks he can run a pub.

With the pedigree of Graham Chapman and Barry Cryer as the writers and with Ronnie Corbett and Rosemary leach in the starring roles, you'd think this would have been a great series and a hit, too. It was neither.

Chapman and Cryer fall way short here with the uninspired story of the energetic but inept 'fish out of water' premise. The spiral into infantile slapstick is better suited to Christmas pantomime than mainstream TV. The usually reliable Corbett can normally raise the 'watch-ability' of everything he's in, but not this time. Both he and Leach descend into wild overacting which even kids wouldn't fall for.

Some recognizable faces and a few notable cameos (including Geoffrey Palmer) make this six-parter slightly more bearable.
