Quote from: PeterCornelius on May 23, 2021, 10:40:55 AMI could never understand why it ran for so many years. I remember catching an episode from one of the later series and it redefined 'twee'. Did it have high ratings?
Quote from: purlieu on May 22, 2021, 08:53:07 PMBut the contraption-on-wheels-of-the-week type stories were really, really tiresome - I still see bits of it because my parents always watch the repeat runs on Yesterday, and it's painful just how signposted every plot point, pratfall and gag is in these bits.

Quote from: idunnosomename on May 23, 2021, 01:31:24 PMdidn't it have a good international market? For some bizarre reasonChrist the Simpsons just past its number of seasons. A comparable dip into an absolute shambling insult of itself, although they havent run into the main cast popping their clogs yet.
Quote from: badaids on May 23, 2021, 08:45:29 PMRight the thing is that Last of the Summer Wine will forever be, for me and many others growing up in the 80s, the shit boring program with the three miserable old unfunny cunts that heralded the actual physical and spiritual point where the weekend ended and it was school tomorrow... a horribly bleak reminder that there was never anything to do ever and everything was filling in the moments before you died. That was a lot to deal with when you were 10 years old. It's so strongly encoded in my brain that even I don't think anything will ever change it. Even an image or clip of it brings back that horrible bleakness.
Quote from: checkoutgirl on May 24, 2021, 12:00:07 AMIt's sort of in the same area as Mrs Brown's Boys,
QuoteLast of the Summer Wine ended in 2010 and not long after Mrs Brown's Boys started to gain popularity in England so there'll probably always be a place for slapstick and willy jokes for old people on telly.
QuoteI remember being confused by First of the Summer Wine. What could that be?

Quote from: Wikipedia'Electrical' Entwistle(Burt Kwouk; 2002–10) Electrician and fortune-teller from the land of eastern wisdom, Hull. His original surname was McIntyre, but he changed it so that people wouldn't mistake him for a Scotsman. When Wesley died, Entwistle took over his job of shuttling the others across the countryside, in a battered red Toyota Hilux pick-up truck, and occasionally constructing the various contraptions the main trio produce.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Last_of_the_Summer_Wine_characters#'Electrical'_Entwistle
