LOG and the science of how comedy can age well

Through comedies we learn to "grow up" and invest in the culture we're born into. And, more importantly, comedies are how we "grow out" of this parent culture and leave it behind - sitcoms end often within a decade of airing. So what does it mean when characters return from the past and start saying things we'd really rather they didn't? One particular sitcom to have faced this problem and handled it with pathos is The League Of Gentlemen.
