Better than expected
2 September 2019 | by evans-15475See all my reviews

No ideal why this is on forces tv in the uk,but wasn't expecting much from 70s sitcom that I had vaguely heard of,I was pleasantly surprised yes the plot misunderstandings are tenuous at best all the actors apart from nanny are projecting like they are on stage indeed with the girls you almost feel they are reading statements rather than flowing conversation but I have laughed several times at every single episode I can't remember the last sitcom I watched that had actual jokes
