I remember watching these episodes and being blown away by how smart and stylish they all were. I didn't remember the really quite clever plots with sudden twists and turns that you just didn't expect !
Of course it has to be viewed through eyes that realise the production is 30-odd years old.
We laughed to see some quite, well, sexy, shots of John Stride's crotch and bottom .. he was obviously the dishy interest in the series, while Julia Foster, the charming sensible one with a true sense of humour.
The whole buying process for the set was very successful, from smart TR7, white with black roof, to checked shirts and lots of brown and cream cords and Ming Court with its middle class but slightly boho-chic style.
There is much to deride but rather than look for cracks in the plot, enjoy the bounce of each other relationship they had .. it comes across as very genuine and fun.
We were shocked (in a good way) to realise they had a pornographer living below them !!
Spot the high-life opening sequences, great fun !
Only quibble is that the episodes break where the ads would have been, which is a bit odd ... but it does give you a chance to enjoy the open/close theme tune.
I/we so enjoyed the lot, if you love the 70's enjoy rounded character portrayal and can turn a blind eye to a few glitches, buy and enjoy !
