Warning - if anyone "out there" is thinking of making a new sitcom, covering all aspects of LGBT, take great care. The LGBT and the media community just might make "mincemeat of you"; literally!! Not forgetting that the producers, etc. of "Agony" have given us such extremely high quality, especially when it comes to casting the likes of Maureen Lipman, Maria Charles (no one could replace her with her voice "Jaaaanneeeee"), Simon Williams and not forgetting Peter Blake ("Hevvveee"). Such a shame "Agony Again" (from 1995) isn't on DVD. Why?? Over 20 years on and still no DVD.
I was introduced to Maureen Lipman when this was showing on TV. I have been a fan ever since, no matter what she does. She is Simply The Best; so is Maria Charles, God Bless You Both. I am so glad that Maria is still Alive and Kicking at a very young age of 87... what more can I say......
This is a very funny sitcom, but one that really has something to say about mental & emotional wellbeing. It is mature and thoughtful, by turns very funny and then desperately sad. It raises issues that 30 years on are still often handled clumsily by modern productions - in particular it's depiction of a gay couple which was really trailblazing.
While some of the sex & race references can occasionally jar a little with a modern audience, all these series stand up extremely well to the passage of time and are in fact far superior to any current British sitcom I can think of.
Take yourself back to the end of the 70s and forget up-to-date attitudes to gays, Jews and drugs. Just watch out for the dog in pyjamas.
