One Foot In The Grave

The grumpy complainer and accident prone Victor Meldrew takes early retirement and finds he has far too much time on his hands. His long suffering wife and neighbours just have to grin and bear it

Don't know if there is a thread about this but I would say mine is The Dawn Of Man, penultimate episode.

Well, I haven't watched the show in a while, but the episode that first came into my head is the one in which Victor is the only character: "The Trial".

I love the ones where Victor goes, "I don't believe it!"

Only because you wish you'd said it! I'm like sooooo three steps ahead of you all the time!

And to answer the thread title, I like the last episode because it took balls to do what Renwick did.

I thought about it, but self-edited . Due to it being shit.

As the Chinese proverb has it: 'He who is three steps ahead, will tread in mucho dog crap. So thank for that.'

Victor accidentally picks up a dirty video, and gives it to Patrick thinking it is his twin brother

I don't know if I can think of one particular favourite. However, it is one of my favourite sitcoms. I rank it as number two after Fawlty Towers. But its very close. Wisdom of the Witch used to be my favourite. But I've seen it a number of times now so it's lost its original buzz for me. It was consistently good through out. I've read somewhere that the US sitcom Cosby was based on 'One foot'. However, I've never seen Cosby.

I like alot of eps but I love certain scenes like the plant in toilet, the one where he picks up the dog as the phone and a the one where he sends Mrs Warboys for a massage!

Omg I have a picture! At last.
