The Job Lot British sitcom

There are few themes that are hardly the laughing matter, like someone’s death, illness, being broke or having the personal crisis. Yet comedy series managed to deal with all those themes without actually crossing the boundries. Death? Getting on (British or American version). Illness? Only When I Laugh or Scrubs. Personal crisis? The Fall and Raise of Reginald Perrin for example. Being broke? Oh, this list would be too long - from Steptoe and Son to Married with Children and many more. The Job Lot is another example of trying to make comedy of something that on first glance seem hard to achieve - unemployment.

Many things can be said about Vince Powell, but certainly not that he avoided controversial topics in his sitcoms. Let’s see: George and the Dragon (mother-in-law jokes), Never Mind the Quality Feel the Width (religion), Love Thy Neighbour (race), Odd Man Out (gay character), Mind Your Language (foreigners) or Never the Twain (two nasty old men). The Wackers seemed to be rather typical sitcom of the era - story about Liverpool family living is typical small house, yet he managed to put another touchy subject in that simple sitcom.

Comedy Series Blog - we search all the interesting (and sometimes not that interesting) comedy series from around the world. Some of them might be slightly better than the others, but in comedy there are no strict rules - sometimes less funny series, but made with skillful touch could be a hit. On the other hand there are series that try too hard to be funny and lose on the plots and characters building.
