Hi every one.

My first post on this forum and I'm talking about worst episodes.

It's a difficult one as I don't think that there is a truly bad instalment of the show, but if pressed I think that I would have to go with The Economist.

It's just a little bland and doesn't really do anything for me.

For what it's worth I have always liked Back in Fashion.

I lvoe 'Loathe Story' but it is a different episode format to which we are familiar. The format is reminiscant of the 'Some Mothers' episode where Frank is with the psychiatrist (though Steptoe was first). I can understand why someone does not favour this but I love the shrink in this episode. And how big WERE Harold's mums bristols? We never really find out...

I agree with you 100%. When Albert slings his denture soak over Harold and you get the close up of his face, all gummy and shrieking, "You're potty! You're mad!" I nearly wet myself on the spot!

A very solid episode indeed.

i dont really care much for 'seance in a wet rag and bone yard' its not at all funny, i mean the idea is a good one, but it just dosent work, even Patricia Routledge who was brilliant as Hyacinth Bucket just isnt the slightest bit funny either, i dont know what G and S were thinking, its just a blip though because i think the rest of their work is just brilliant,
Thats not dust, its bleedin topsoil.

A newbie and another differed opinion!-I prefer the Later B&W/Colour episodes,love to see Albert looking as disgusting as ever and I think in these episodes he looks at his worst!-Scruffier Hair,Dirtier Clothing and Teeth to match!-The yard/house also looks messier and the stories a little 'sillier' maybe,so all this goes in favour for me!-So my least faves are from Seies One(ooh controversial!)and also not so keen on the 'political' ones...but I am a HUGE fan of the programme-honest! :lol:

I would say that picking the worst episodes is FAR easier than picking the best. I haven't a single criticism of any episode in the first six series.

To my mind there are only three blights on the great legacy of Steptoe & Son. They are:

"Live Now, PAYE Later"-unless you are a Python, putting the men in dresses is just begging for cheap laughs

"The Seven Steptoerai"-ludicrous

"Seance In A Wet Rag And Bone Yard"-what a poor send off for such a brilliant show

I await the two films in the post.

Thank you Galton & Simpson for so much miserable joy!!!
