    97 - The Reluctant Landlord

    97 - The Reluctant Landlord

    This week we review - The Reluctant Landlord (Series 1 Episode 1)

    Much to his annoyance Romesh is left running the local pub after his mischievous father left it to him in his will. He has never wanted to be a landlord, but his mum feels it is the only way to keep his dad's legacy alive, and his wife and kids are having a ball there.

    Starring Sian Gibson as his wife, Natasha, and Nick Helm as best mate Lemon, this semi-autobiographical sitcom follows Romesh's misadventures as he tries to offload the pub he doesn't want, while his family use any amount of emotional blackmail to keep him at the heart of the place.

    Written by Romesh Ranganathan and Shaun Pye
    Produced by Jane Bell
    Directed by David Sant
    A What Larks!/ Ranga Bee Production For Sky.

    96 - Chewing Gum

    96 - Chewing Gum

    This week we review - Chewing Gum (Series 1 Episode 3)

    In Chewing Gum, Michaela Coel plays Tracey Gordon, a religious Beyoncé-obsessed 22-year-old who is fast finding out that the more she learns about the world, the less she understands.

    Tracey and her mates are in their early twenties, living in an estate in Tower Hamlets, east London. Some of them have full time jobs, some are in uni, some are already parents. But really - they are all stuck. Stuck in their youth and still trying to coast through their days with minimum responsibility. Future plans don't extend much beyond saving up for the latest pair of trainers, a new car, or a Cambodian Weave. They live in the moment.

    Tracey, however, seems capable of more. But growing up in a strict religious environment means she is 'underdeveloped' in many areas, and so her path into adulthood has been... interesting. She is wise, but innocent, genuflecting equally to both her idols - Beyoncé and Jesus. Living in a swiftly changing London, we watch as she crashes her way through what she should and shouldn't be doing.

    Written by Michaela Coel
    Produced by Kelly McGolpin, John Pocock and Michaela Coel
    Directed by Tom Marshall and Simon Neal
    A Retort Production For Channel 4.

    95 - Only Fools & Horses

    95 - Only Fools & Horses

    This week we review - One Fools & Horses (Series 3 Episode 3)

    Created and written by John Sullivan, seven series were originally broadcast on BBC One in the United Kingdom from 1981 to 1991, with sixteen sporadic Christmas specials aired until the end of the show in 2003.

    Set in Peckham in south-east London, it stars David Jason as ambitious market trader Derek "Del Boy" Trotter, Nicholas Lyndhurst as his younger brother Rodney Trotter, and Lennard Pearce as their elderly Grandad as their sidekick.

    Backed by a strong supporting cast, the series follows the Trotters' highs and lows in life, in particular their attempts to get rich.

    After Lennard Pearce's death in 1984, the show introduced a new sidekick Uncle Albert, the boys' great uncle played by Buster Merryfield. From 1988 onwards, the show features regular characters in Del Boy and Rodney's love interests, Raquel (Tessa Peake-Jones) and Cassandra (Gwyneth Strong) respectively.

    Other recurring characters include haughty car dealer Boycie (John Challis), dim-witted road sweeper Trigger (Roger Lloyd-Pack), lorry driver Denzil (Paul Barber), obnoxious spiv Mickey Pearce (Patrick Murray) and bartender Mike (Kenneth MacDonald).

    The show achieved consistently high ratings, and the 1996 episode "Time on Our Hands" (originally billed as the last ever episode) holds the record for the highest UK audience for a sitcom episode, attracting over 24.3 million viewers.

    Written by John Sullivan
    Produced by Ray Butt and Gareth Gwenlan
    Directed by Martin Shardlow, Ray Butt, Susan Belbin, Mandie Fletcher and Tony Dow
    A BBC Production.

    94 - The Wilsons Save The World

    94 - The Wilsons Save The World

    This week we review - The Wilsons Save The World (Series 1 Episode 4)

    Michael and Maxine Wilson and their daughters, Lola and Cat have resolved to live a more ethical life.

    Millions of people try every day to make 'good' choices and do the 'right thing'. It's hard. Most of us live with hypocrisy and failure all the time but keep on trying. The Wilsons are trying about 20% harder and learning to live with about 19% more failure.

    In the last episode in the series Max and Mike attempt to get their heads around the sensitive subject of S.E.X. and technology. Their teenage daughter Cat's latest relationship seems to be mainly conducted through the phone and they fear she doesn't have a clue on the risks attached in sharing intimate images.

    However, a full and frank adult conversation seems to be beyond Mike who has hang-ups of his own and Max and Mike's attempt to educate the children on the dangers of pornography on the web leaves Lola simply well-versed in European politics and Cat angry.

    Written by Marcus Brigstocke & Sarah Morgan
    Produced by Julia McKenzie
    A BBC Studios Production.

    93 - The Goes Wrong Show

    This week we review - The Goes Wrong Show (Series 1 Episode 6)

    The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society undertake another (overly) ambitious endeavour, held back by prolific over-actor Robert Grove, the screen-hogging Sandra Wilkinson and the artistically mistrusted Dennis Tyde.

    Six hand-crafted, half hours of theatrical catastrophe include the gripping courtroom drama 'A Trial to Watch' and World War II spy thriller 'The Pilot' (which is not the pilot).

    The Goes Wrong Show is simply Mischief's biggest disaster yet.

    Written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields
    Produced by Jim Poyser
    Directed by Martin Dennis
    A Mischief / Big Talk North Co-production for BBC.

    92 - Frankie Howerd (Radio)

    This week we review - Frankie Howerd (Series 2 Episode 4)

    Originally made for and broadcast on BBC Radio 2, there isn't a huge amount written about this Frankie Howerd show which seems somewhat confused by it's own identity.

    Named in listings and on the BBC website as simply 'Frankie Howerd' but rereferred to in the show as 'Frankie Howerd's Illustrious Memoirs' and even named in some quarters as 'The Frankie Howerd Show' (a throwback to his 1966 radio show), this radio show spanned twenty episodes, divided into three series between 1973 and 1975.

    A cross between stand up and a meandering sketch show, it was recorded in front of a studio audience with the assistance of June Whitfield, Ray Fell, Olwyn Griffiths and a four piece band.

    In this episode, Frankie is accused of being a spy, gets hypnotised and joins a local literary group.

    Written by David McKellar & David Nobbs
    Produced by David Hatch
    A BBC Production.
