This classic piece of West Midlands theatre,(Well,Black Country actually...)set in Dudley is a great tribute to the warped but warm sense of humour, which is in the hearts of people within Dudley and the Black Country. The extra commentary provided by Nodder Holder of Slade is a bonus, as is his role as a music teacher in the programme.Noddy even provides a solo rendition of a Slade No.!!!.All characters are well casted around the central character of frustrated Gordon in his battle with his attraction towards the sexuality of Samantha Janus (girl next door) and his deadhead (couch potato) dad Nigel Planer who wants Gordon to follow his tradition of factory work as opposed to Gordons desire for a University education.
All this set to the sounds of the seventies (Bay City Rollers - Shang alang)inclusive of flares,feathered haircuts and banale/sadistic/machismo from Jack Dee,which brings back memories of those "Comprehensive 70's school days" is a must to watch. Fortunately,this pilot was to continue into a full blown series.Rock-On The Grimley's.

The first three episodes in the series introduce the Grimley family to us. The mixture of true to life occurances and ingenious comedy make this a must watch for any comedy fan. As the series progresses it goes from strength to strength with Brian Conely a scream throughout. If you do not buy this then you are as Digby says "weak and worthless".
