    The BBC repeated it when I was about 18. Loved it when I was a kid and have to say that Monty Python was correct “KIDS PROGRAM”. Just didn’t find it funny anymore and I think that was down to my own age rather than the age of the program.

    I watched one some years ago but still many years after it originally aired and didn't think it had aged well even though I loved it when I was a kid. Having said that, I have morphed in to a miserable old bastard with barely a good word to say about anything.

    I have one for “TV shows that shouldn’t have been repeated”

    Red Dwarf

    The newer series are literally awful in comparison.

    They should bring back that German quiz show Tutti Frutti used to Benin the Hvc channel on cable tv , genuinely had no idea what was happening but it was essential viewing as a teenager

    there is a big difference between repeating what went before or remaking - remaking is generally not a good move !


    The Sweeney is on virtually everyday - brilliant with John Thaw and Dennis Waterman - “get your trousers on we’re the Sweeney “

    Phoenix nights should be shown again - takes at least two viewings to see all the jokes

    You can still watch some episodes on YouTube, it's funny for all the wrong reasons, how they got away with that stuff even then beggars belief
