5.0 out of 5 stars Parsley sidings
funny and takes you back to an era which you can forget your troubles with for a while. They were in Dads Army and offer light comedy. Light stuff has its call when the more complicated just doesn't cut it because you just want the entertainment side of something rather than having to peruse through chapters to find out what happened to aunt Matilda and such

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting view on the history of comedy
Purchased this for nostalgic reasons and partly because I had never heard this series on the radio.

It's a period piece series of railway based comedy sketches which fail to raise even a murmur of a laugh. It fits in with a period when maybe music hall and working mens clubs were a typical night out however don't purchase this expecting to actually laugh...

5.0 out of 5 stars Not laugh out loud funny, I admit, but......, 8 Feb 2013
This review is from: Parsley Sidings (Classic BBC Comedy) (Audio CD)
If you imagine Will Hays rather seedy character, together with his sidekicks, Albert, the cheeky fat boy and Harbottle, the old retainer, brought into the "Carry On" era of the late 50s, early 60s, then this is what you can expect from "Parsley Sidings"

It's not hilarious, and I don't think you'll roll about on the floor clutching your sides, but it's a pleasant half an hour in the company of actors/actresses, who know how to put this kind of material across.

Some funny lines, farcical situations, conniving/bumbling/lazy or eager to please members of staff and a whiff of nostalgia for the days when life was less fraught and more "cosy", all go to make up the kind of comedy which isn't made any more, i.e, clean.

You can listen to this with the whole family; it won't offend even your local nun.

Plus, you even get the late, great Kenneth Connor (Cor, Madam, Mate.....) as the station hen!

This series was dated even when it was written and I can now fully understand as to why the series was curtailed and the much heralded TV series was never commissioned.
