3.0 out of 5 stars Why is there political correctness?
The first couple were great then they got too slapstick and politically correct. Why can"t we make fun of people because of their race and religion anymore? It is comedy.

3.0 out of 5 stars In sickness and health christmas special, 25 Mar 2011
This review is from: In Sickness & In Health - The Christmas Specials [DVD] (DVD)
It was mainly Alf & his wife. I was hoping for more interaction with the family. It is a shame the earlier tapes were wiped. Still had a good laugh though

As you might expect, this will take no prizes for political correctness - but then, if it did you wouldn't be looking here, would you!Alf at his best - or worst, depending on your point of view
