Still one of the best!,
This review is from: Porridge - The Complete Series Box Set (Series 1, 2, 3 and The Christmas Specials) (DVD)
This is simply television comedy at its best. Truly classic!
Yes, some of the jokes are rather well worn and the plots are obvious; but that's not the point! The writing, the delivery, the timing and the acting make it head and shoulders above pretty much all other TV comedies. I have just finished watching the first series and although I am more than familiar with each episode...it still makes me laugh!
Why can't they write stuff like this anymore?
