    ...don't panic!

    I have just been watching it on TV...bloody excellent's classics like this that make todays so called comedy look pathetic by comparison imho.

    I remember watching Dads army on Saturday nights as a boy...still watching it today.

    ..."don't tell him Pike!" :eek: :blush:

    I used to watch it as a boy because there was not much else on, don't think I could sit through it now. It was okay in its day, but there have been much better things since.
  5. Perfectly timed and expressed humour.
    I think only one of the cast is alive now..?

    Like a lot of things, time does give us a "rose tinted" memory. For one "Dads' Army" you'll get "On The Buses", "Father, Dear Father", "Mind Your Language", "Last Of The Summer Wine"(not funny then or now!), "Please Sir", "Terry And June" etc. etc.

    Pike is still alive. And Jones I think.

    Useless fact of the day-

    Arnold Ridley, who played Private Godfrey, was invalided out of the Somme and was a Major in WWII. He wrote The Ghost Train.

    Dad's Army is great. Mrs N bought me a DVD a few months ago with a few episodes I had never seen before.

    Although they were not a laugh a minute for the whole programme, there were some classic and very funny sections in each episode!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You mean this! :eek:

    Dads' Army was an all-time classic, but wasn't everyone's cup of tea, including my Grandad's who was in the Homeguard.
  14. Like a lot of these vintage comedies, it's best in small doses. For gentle humour, it is one of the finest series the Beeb ever made.

    Rose tinted spectacles indeed, since for me, watching an episode of Dads Army is akin to having my fingernails peeled off.
