Brings back memories but just aint that funny.
on 20 August 2013
I used to enjoy this series when I was growing up: the theme music is fantastic and David Kelly's portrayl of Albert is at times very funny. Unfortunately, unlike George and Mildred (created by the same writing team of Cooke and Mortimer), Robin's Nest just isn't that funny. The odd chuckle here and there isn't enough to satisfy me on the comedy front. Some reviewers have also commented that Robin's Nest is great because it reflects a time when people were not "politically correct". Well, my response to that is, how tragic that certain people think calling people "paki" and laughing at their religion is okay and that people who don't agree are somehow a bit odd - I would say it is the other way around. "Political correctness" or just good manners and a bit of respect; don't we all want that? Robin's Nest is a mildly amusing sit-com that is very much of its time...for better and for worse.
