This is basically the story of a 'blind as a bat' furniture removal man - in search of a woman.
I remembered this show from way back as quite funny.
On watching it again I still chuckled at parts - I'm a specs wearer myself, so smiling at
Clarence's talking to a standard lamp wasn't being unkind. That mixed up with some very
juvenile leering at Josephine Tewson and poor double entendres is the level of the humour.
Ronnie Barker was a very funny man and his delivery made very little amusing, but the script wasn't really
worthy of him.
As a show it hasn't really held up and worn well, unlike Porridge.
It will give you a mild giggle, if you don't mind it being dated, but not one of the all time greats.
It's is a cheap DVD and you will get your money's worth.
