Lately I've been watching For The Love Of Ada for the first time. I was pleasantly surprised as it is better than I expected it to be. I'd never even heard of it till recently.
Has a distinct feel - which is a combination of earthiness, sweetness and gentleness. Has a feel-good factor. Ada is a strong and likeable main character.
Reminds me quite a bit in some ways of On The Buses. I think it's because the house they live in looks the same. Style of comedy is similar - although I think the Ada stories are a little more robust. Primarily about a more mature age group.
I recommend it for anyone who likes a gentle, fairly predictable, working class type comedy.
I find the theme tune a little slow. However, it does match the gentle tone of the show.
