Love Thy Neighbour Series 1,
This review is from: Love Thy Neighbour: Complete Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
In this world gone mad, where a blackboard is now a chalkboard and a whiteboard is a dryboard, we are slowly becoming a country that has lost the ability to laugh at itself.
In a multi-cultural society, the one thing that should bring us all together is the ability to be able to laugh about ourselves and eachother
The politically correct brigade amongst us are bound to say that this programme is nothing more than racist claptrap, but the fact is that both lead characters give as much as they get.
This is no more than un-pc and racist than 'Till Death do us part, where Warren Mitchell dispells Tony Booth for being a scouser.
The main point about the whole series is that it is funny. Eddie Booth (Jack Smethurst) inveitably comes off worst and it is funny to see his bigoted views become his downfall.
With classic one liners this situation comedy delivers on all levels, so whack it in the DVD player and give it a whirl
