'The girls' rock!,
This review is from: You're Only Young Twice - Series 3 - Complete [DVD]  (DVD)
When articles about the greatest sitcoms of the 70's appear, you never see 'You're Only Young Twice' mentioned. I'm not saying it is the best thing ever but the series is fantastic fun. Mainly carried by Peggy Mount as gloriously bossy Flora Petty and Pat Coombs as dippy, innocent Cissie Lupin, the series revolves around the scrapes the women at 'Paradise Lodge' get into and how they have to 'rely' on Flora to save the day!
All the cast play their parts with great gusto and the other 2 ladies featured, flirty, tipsy Dolly Love and posh, motorbike loving Mildred Fanshaw give ample support to Flora and Cissie.
The 4 series ran from 1977 to 1981 and are all now out on DVD. I couldn't honestly say which one is best, they're all much of a muchness and are guaranteed to bring a smile to your face on a dark, cold winter's night. The sets and situations aren't the best you'll ever see but as a child, I always wanted to go to 'Paradise Lodge' and visit the girls! What an afternoon that would have been!
On a slightly depressing footnote, all the main stars have long since passed away but I was shocked to discover that Charmain May, who played the owner of 'Paradise Lodge', Miss Milton, so beautifully died in 2002 aged only 65. Guess there's only 'Finchy' and 'Roger' left now!
