Confessing that he has only seen (The Young Ones) 'occasionally' since it aired between 1982 and 1984, Edmondson says: 'It looks tired and slow. If you watch The Good Life now though, you think: yeah that still looks relevant. You think: that's funny.'
That's the most depressing thing I've ever seen, and I once watched 9 hours of Ingmar Bergman. It's up there with Ben Elton saying in retrospect the Thatch was a strong women so deserved respect - or sticking his tongue so far up Lloyd Webber's jacksie no winder he's full of shit - or sticking up for The Good Life. In fact, every f**king thing Ben's ever done since 1988.
I guess everyone sells out in the end. My personal favourite was Alexei Sayle's 7 levels of Comedian Hell, culminating in - AAAAAAAAAAAAARRRGGGGGGGGG! - adverts. Does 'Woolworth's, we've got a gift for Christmas' mean anything to you?
I saw a big concert sign, 'New Order - SOLD OUT!' I thought Yes, in 1993.
