    It used to make me LOL.
    British comedy was always good.
    Lots of outrage from one side and the other laughing I guess. I never saw it and there are never reruns.

    I don't think you'll ever see it on TV again.
    Maybe at a DVD store??
    Extremely funny but wouldn't get near a TV these days.
    I agree with a little PC but so much is just overkill.

    But then Little Britain was filmed more recently with blacking up
    But then what's the difference between domestic violence in older programmes like Bottom and domestic violence today in say, EastEnders, Casualty, etc?

    In Bottom it would be portrayed as funny and not socially unacceptable. For instance, Eddie hitting the woman with collecting tin with a mallet and knocking her down the stairs.

    What about the old British comic strip Andy Capp. Talk about domestic violence. Of course Flo gave as good as she got.

    Used to read Andy religiously in the paper down here.

    Yep, very popular for those not looking to find offence in everything.

    We have a local version called 'Owd Grandad Piggott. There are still some recordings around (I have a few on cassette from decades ago) online.

    In the Scene in Bottom I mentioned above she had kicked Eddie in the balls and hit him with her collecting tin. She was actually collecting for victims of domestic violence so Eddie robbed her tin but threw some change out of it down the stairs for her. Bottom was a very physical comedy.

    It will be around in DVD. I've seen Rudolph Walker in plenty of shows.

    Agreed, things move on but we've ended up with poor comedy on TV due to all the moralizing.

    I would hardly call repeated use of the F-word in a lot of comedies over the past 25 years or so 'moralising'. And I'm no prude in the grand scheme of things either, I just find it all very repetitive, unoriginal and in all, lazy writing.
