Quite Funny, With Quirky Characters
on 10 January 2015
I liked this series very much. While not quite up to the brilliant standards of Nicholas Lyndhurst's later "Goodbye Sweetheart," TPF offers amusing situations and quirky recurring characters - - especially Drummond (Clive Francis) and Dexter (Michael Percival). I would describe it as an ensemble comedy, and that genre can usually be counted upon for plenty of laughs. Occasionally (about once an episode), there is a laugh-out-loud moment with inspired writing. Otherwise, the chuckles are milder but still enjoyable. Personally, I would be happy to spend any half-hour staring at the cutie who plays "Flint." (Does anyone know whether Louise Catt has appeared in any other telly or cinema? Nothing else is listed for her on IMDb.) Try "The Piglet Files." I think you will be glad that you did, provided you are not expecting a profound classic.
