Nearest and Dearest

spent half my life describing this show to people as "Pickle factory" no one had any idea what I was going on about.

Bloody classic :)

I haven't seen it in about 20 years so it might be showing its age. I think the knack is to create the comedy from the characters and not current issues of the time
