George & Mildred
Sitcom about the Ropers, somewhat of an odd couple both together and within their Hampton Wick neighbourhood
George and Mildred Roper are somewhat of an odd couple: he would be working class if he wasn't too lazy and feckless to actually, well, work; and she's a wannabe snob.
Our Review: We'd be foolish to pretend that many aspects of the show - the extent to which class prejudice is present, for example - haven't dated, but with most of the humour derived from timeless spouse- and personality-clashes, there's plenty to laugh at more than 30 years on from the show's original production. Yes, some of the gags are corny, and yes it's exactly the kind of sitcom that comedy fans are supposed to hate, but the great writing from Mortimer and Cooke and charm of the series are still evident.
