Bless This House
A popular 1970s sitcom starring Sid James. Sid Abbott is, day-in, day-out, hindered in anything and everything by his family
Sidney Abbott, salesman and average family man, just wants a nice, quiet, relaxing life. Unfortunately for Sid, his every endeavour seems plagued by his well-meaning but interfering wife, Jean; his innocent and often clueless daughter, Sally; and his selfish layabout son, Mike.
Our Review: No matter how cheesey the jokes may be at times, Sid James's presence in the show gives it a certain warm, familiar feel. The style of comedy is fairly typical of early 1970s sitcom fayre, and so although many of the situations Sid and his family find themselves in may still ring true, the humour itself will have dated for many.
