Re: Are You Being Served?

It seems that few genuinely funny sitcoms are made now.
I doubt that anything like "Are You Being Served?" would be made now as it would be deemed "not politically correct" so may upset a few fragile flowers.
Just finished watching the "It Ain't Half Hot Mum" series. Very funny had me in tears laughing but that doesn't even get shown anymore because of the politically correct nonsense.

I know and it's a bloody shame.
Almost anyone can get upset at just about anything - if you look hard enough. Why these people cannot just turn if off if they feel they are being offended I just don't know.
Can you imagine 'Love Thy Neighbour' today  Grin
