Which is your favourite series?

Cannot seperate series 7 and 8 as my equal faves. Firstly they are both in colour as they are latter series, and secondly they contain the classic episodes 7: ( Loathe story, Divided we stand, The desperate hours) 8: (And so to bed, The seven steptorai, porn yesterday).

Hi Rian

Nice to hear from you again, I thought we lost you.

If I was pushed I would have to opt for Series 7

Series 5 and 6 beyond doubt, though each series has it's own merits.

Series 5 has so much energy, and the stories were great. Series 6 is one great episode after another (though Come Dancing would be my least favourite).

But the early series also have that gritty edge which is what made Steptoe and Son so popular so it's hard to decide, but 5 and 6 if I have to!

I would say 5 & 6.

I have always had a fascination for the missing episodes long before they were recovered, having remembered them from being a kid.

And the sheer absolute joy at finally seeing them again makes those two seasons my favourites.

Best Series ....

Postby ianb » Thu Apr 23, 2009 8:36 pm

Series 7 is the best series for me ...... but series 5 & 6 are good also. I think some of the best comedy came from that period of the early 70s (1970-1975) This was also the period when Porridge and Dads Army were at their peak also. Great time to be alive!

Welcome to the forum Ianb

I do agree I think comedy in the 70's, especially BBC comedy was at its best.

I don't think I am being too nostalgic I thing there we no prohibitions in place then. Comedy today tends to be either too sterile, or to absurd to be true.

There was some truth to the way Albert and Harold thought and spoke.

People often say the 70's was the ebst, and I have often agreed, though Ray and Alan once made a point about 'The Golden Age' of comedy - as they pointed out, nobody ever remembers the bad stuff - there was a lot of rubbish in the 70s too, whch we dont remmeber.

I often wonder what people will say in 30yrs time bout todays comedy... I don't think it would be much though.

What we miss are shows that families gather to watch. Born in 81 I rememebr mainly the 90's and the only things we had which we had to gather for was Fools and Horses (the trilogy) and anything with Michael Barrymore (say wot u want about him now, he gave my family a lot of laughter). Those shows don't exist anymore and its such a shame.

It is very difficult for me to pick my favourite series but series three most certainly went off with a bang; Homes Fit For Heroes, The Wooden Overcoats, The Lead Man Cometh, Steptoe À La Cart, Sunday For Seven Days, etc.
