I just read the BSG review which said that the jokes are 'noticeably dated' and 'aren't funny anymore'
Hmmm . . could this not be said of almost every 50/60/70s sitcom?
I'm a huge Hancock fan (in both senses of the word thanks to Stella!) and 61 years old so what would my daughters who are 18 and 17 think of 'Sunday afternoon at home'?
They just would not understand it.
Likewise something like 'All Gas and Gaiters'.
These programmes were set in a world 40 or 50 years ago and given the pace of change even in the last 20 years it's hardly surprising that they seem a bit outdated.
Having just finished watching every episode of Dad's Army, I'm now starting on OTB.
It does show though what a stroke of genius Dad's Army was because it still seems as fresh today as ever in my opinion.
