I know you have to have an aquired taste for Croft and Perry sitcoms, apart from Dads Army that is. Would you agree though Dave that Dads Army is Croft's best work. I also think It Aint Half Hot Mum is really good and I like You Rang M'Lord. Hi-De-Hi isn't great, but still watchable.

Dads Army is head and shouldes above the other two. I can't watch them.

Was in a pub yesterday and they had a lot of books on a table that you could just take. They asked for a donation in the charity box so I put a pound in and took Are you Being Served- the novel.

Haven't started it yet as I'm currently reading 'The Adventures of Tintin- Explorers On the Moon' Still really enjoy the comics of Tintin.

I love Tintin - and graphic novels which are basically comics.

As well as the Marvel and DC comics I loved English comics like Eagle, Tiger, Victor etc.

Of course, when David was (relatively) young, papyrus was the latest innovation.

We don't need numerous threads about the same show. If the original thread (this one) had been further down the forum, then it wouldn't be such a big deal. But it was last replied to just three days before you opened a brand new one, so was on the same bloody page.
