The humour has stood the test of time, the series may not have been as accepted as Porridge was, but with an estimated 15 million viewers tuning in each week to catch up with the exploits of Fletch and Godber, there is nothing to be sniffed at. I enjoyed watching this series immensely and will continue to revisit this gem of a series by one of Britain's finest character actors Mr Ronnie Barker.
But not seen again since! (40+year's)
Still well Acted and shows how good the Fletcher Carricture works with little or no Support from other actors only one series but ,RB. Knew there is only so much mileage to a show he did the porridge film in the same year and never again and still being shown now
Whereas Porridge has been repeated on a loop, this has barely been shown.
Every bit as funny as it’s predecessor it’s a shame it didn’t last longer, as there was plenty of scope for it.
Ronnie Barker is as ever, completely brilliant.
I will say one thing, GUESS who he meets outside............................................You 'orrible lot!
