We love sitcoms. Particularly classic British sitcoms of the 1970s and 1980s. They remind us of our happy childhoods, watching television with our families in the evenings, back when choice was limited to just three or four channels.

Now – 30 or 40 years later – we still love to watch classic sitcoms like Rising Damp, Fawlty Towers, Porridge and more: it’s like going to visit an old friend with whom you immediately feel relaxed and comfortable.

Starting with The Good Life (Good Neighbors to American audiences), we'll be taking a weekly deep dive into every single episode ever made of our favourite childhood sitcoms: examining the humour, characters, fashions and cringey bits together.

    As Jerry and Margo prepare to schmooze their way into Sir's good books to land Jerry the top job at JJM, Tom and Barbara are more concerned with making green dye from nettles and fashioning their own clothes.

    Which of the candidates from the creme de la Surbiton will 'Sir' ultimately pick for the job? Surely not the snivelling Snetterton!?!?

    S01E24 - The Ill Judged Bruce Forsythe Game

    Margo's getting all 'ponied up' in jodhpurs and whip but not actually going to the pony club. What's going on? The Goods are determined to find out, even if it invokes the dreaded brass tone and zoom camera effect!

    It's the episode that introduces Eggs' woeful Bruce Forsythe impression and lays bare his Nan's voracious appetite for pornography (Jerry would be proud).
