When the show came out on VHS in the late '90s (and on DVD soon after), we watched every episode over and over. Truly classic comedy (with some great music to boot!).

One helluva comedian. It's a sad day. Oh, and of course Allan B'Stard. The name alone always had me in stitches. (edited by dMp on 9.6.14 2102)

A truly great talent.

Loved him on The Young Ones. Some of the very best comedy of that era IMO. Shame he was in that accident. RIP Funny Man.

Probably the funniest scene from the funniest episode.
