On the Buses was good until Reg Varney left but after that the show went down hill.

I never really understood the appeal of Reg Varney.

I know he was meant to be quite a good piano player, I just never believed in him as an actor.

Sorry Reg fans.

I think the "On the buses" films are good,for some reason cannot take to the series,everything i watch is compared to Steptoe & son,only Dads Army & Porridge come anywhere near i'm afraid
Put it like this "Albert & Harold" or "Stan & Jack" "A & H" everytime
Purely my own opinion of course..................... :)

No problem with you disagreeing Scrap, but come on prove it !

I can fully appreciate that for you Reg Varney was a “brilliant” actor and Piano player. I have conceded the Piano point, but I really can’t point to anything in his performances that put him in the same league as Harry H., Wilfrid, Leonard Rossitter, Arthur Lowe, Warren Mitchell and to be fair David Jason.

I don’t know too much about his career and really only have OTB to rely upon. OTB was a far more bawdy comedy that Steptoe and there wasn’t a great deal of pathos or tragedy to work with.

It would be nice to get a re-appraisal of somebody I have not appreciated up to this point.
