Sitcom Archive Deep Dive Overdrive (SADDO)

We love sitcoms. Particularly classic British sitcoms of the 1970s and 1980s. They remind us of our happy childhoods, watching television with our families in the evenings, back when choice was limited to just three or four channels.

Now – 30 or 40 years later – we still love to watch classic sitcoms like Rising Damp, Fawlty Towers, Porridge and more: it’s like going to visit an old friend with whom you immediately feel relaxed and comfortable.

Starting with The Good Life (Good Neighbors to American audiences), we'll be taking a weekly deep dive into every single episode ever made of our favourite childhood sitcoms: examining the humour, characters, fashions and cringey bits together.
