BSG Review:

One of the all time great British sitcoms. Many of these episodes were colour remakes of the 1960s series of " Sykes And A... " which ran for nine series. 'Sykes' was good, clean fun and its actors, Eric Sykes and Hattie Jacques were so well paired that many viewers believed them to be brother and sister in real life. If you feel like watching a traditional British sitcom this is the one to watch. The series ended in 1979 after the unfortunate death of Hattie Jaques.
