All six episodes from the second series of Johnny Speight's sequel to the classic 1960s comedy, 'Till Death Us Do Part', featuring old big-mouth himself, Alf Garnett (Warren Mitchell). Times have changed for Alf, with Else (Dandy Nichols) having died, he has had to get used to life as a widower, finally having to look after himself and cook his own meals, unless he can get his landlady from upstairs, Mrs. Hollingbery (Carmel McSharry), to do it for him.

The second series of 'In Sickness & In Health' begins with the aftermath of Else's funeral. With his wife gone, Alf automatically loses half of his pension, even though he faces the same steep bills each month. The landlady, Mrs.Hollingbery ( Carmel McSharry ) hates his guts, becoming convinced that Alf wants to molest her so she locks him first out of his flat and then in his bedroom. But things eventually cool between them. When Alf's old neighbour Min ( Patricia Hayes ) turns up in the final episode, along with her senile sister Gwenneth ( Irene Handl ), war breaks out between the women.

Una Stubbs appears in almost every episode as Alf's daughter Rita. The timing of this release is especially sad as Ken Campbell, who played Alf's garrulous neighbour Fred Johnson, passed away recently. Ex-'Goodie' Graeme Garden makes a guest appearance in episode five, as a prospective Labour candidate to whom Alf gives a right ear-full.

The funniest episode ( in my opinion ) is number four, when Alf visits a supermarket for the first time in his life, and is baffled by such things as automatic doors and trolleys. He thinks nothing of helping himself to lager as he goes about shopping. At the checkout, when he has not got enough money to pay for his goods, all hell breaks loose.

In the last one, Min and Gwenneth invade Alf's flat, and force him out of his bedroom. Fantastic performances from both Hayes and Handl.

Once you have got past the melancholic first episode, this is a hilarious collection, and a strong reminder of what Britain was like in the '80's, certainly not a golden age despite what some politicians would have you believe.

Special poem for all Alf Garnett fans,
by Alf JNR! Alias...Darryl Ashton.

Don't grow old in England
'Cos it ain't a lot of fun,
The government don't want you
When your working life is done.

You become a burden,
To the system and the State,
Something that our leaders
Really cannot tolerate.

They can't give you a decent pension
Despite what you've paid in,
Because you've become a problem-
You really cannot win.

The price of almost everything,
It seems, increases at will,
The pension, on the other hand,
Seems mostly to stand still.

Budgeting now is something
That really worries me.
Perhaps instead of a pensioner
I should have become an MP!

I had forgotten how funny and risque the films of yesteryear really were, When Politics or Religion did not dominate what you could and couldn't watch, in the event of upsetting someone, or causing moral issues with religions and political correctness, this series truely gives a release to the problems around the world, more films and tv series of this nature should be made.

In Sickness & In Health - Season two is a fantastic comedy. The language and words spoken are strong.

Each episode has a strong story about how working life is in England. Even though this series was made in 1986, each episode is still strong and valid for 2013 Britain.

There are some brilliant characters like a Pakistani corner shop owner who first came to England was pro labour party and now the self employed Pakistani enjoys having his own business and has become pro conservative Tory. There are also two elderly sisters who are very funny.

The most interesting scenes in every episode are when the main character Alf Garnett is talking to his friend Arthur. The two discuss matters that are still valid today in 2013.

A very good comedy

In Sickness & In Health - is Highly recommended
