Normally, I'd spend time writing something here. But the truth is - I forgot to prep anything. I'm uploading these episodes late. Apologies. I can't remember much about what went on here. Hopefully, you'll enjoy it. We did. I remember that much.

New year, a new decade, same old Shitcom. We'll be back next month with more potentially forgotten sitcoms classics. Much to the disapproval of Lennonmacca (thanks for the hilarious review you left us) we aim to bring you the same level of 'why do I listen to this?' as ever. For now, enjoy some highlights and we'll see you soon. Figuratively. Don't forget to like, subscribe and leave a review on iTunes (even one as stellar as Lennonmacca... seriously, check it out, he spent time out of his day to tell us that. What a trooper) @britishshitcom 
With the first two episodes of Christmas dinner and desert lodged firmly in our swollen festive stomachs, we plough straight on into the cold meat sandwich that is ‘Still Game’. Two Scottish OAP's and their views on how it used to be in the old days and how bad it is now in the fictional area of Craiglang, Glasgow. Join us at the end with a festive edition of One Foot In The Game. Enjoy the official Shitmas endorsed disco classic that is 'Christmas at Home': https://soundcloud.com/christmas-at-home
What’s behind the second door of the advent calendar? Why, if it isn’t our old friends Esmonde & Larbey with ‘Get Some In!’. Set in 1955, a sitcom about a group of young men struggling to cope in the RAF. Enjoy the official Shitmas endorsed disco classic that is 'Christmas at Home': https://soundcloud.com/christmas-at-home
Merry Shitmas, here's the first of three audible equivalents of Coal under the Christmas tree. For this festive special, we kick things off with 'That's My Boy'. Amongst the traditional Christmas chat, the Shitcom lads talk about past jobs and debate their ability to deal with an unwarranted bird.

Curry and Chips

Curry and Chips

2019-06-1101:06:20

In the final episode of the series, we decide to watch the video equivalent of Delhi belly in Curry and Chips. An incredibly ill conceived sitcom of good intentions stars a browned up Spike Milligan as half Irish, half Pakistani, Kevin O’Grady.  Following a race riot he was accidentally caught up in, tensions mount amongst Kevin’s co-workers at Lilycrap Ltd, novelty object manufacturers. Through several debates of race we soon move on to religion where the real trouble begins. After a few half pints of beer and what appears to be Guinness in a Sherry glass, Kevin realises he is both Muslim and Catholic meaning he now has 2 heavens. Anger reaches fever pitch where a full on religious riot erupts in the local pub. Why can’t we all just be friends, ay?

Series 1, episode 4 of The Thin Blue Line: Rag Week. Inspector Raymond Fowler (Mr. Bean) has to set up standing order with the bank while having to deal with the shenanigans of local college students and his sex starved partner, Sergeant Patricia Dawkins (PC Wife). His colleague DCI Derek Grim (David Haig - not the boxer) is fed up of his job and the lack of any good crimes to deal with. When a terrorist threat comes in, DCI Grim beams with excitement but is he too happy too soon? Oh, and there’s a bank robbery. But is it what it appears to be? Mark reveals he dislikes animals, Wood questions the millennium and the ice-cream man makes a re-appearance.

Metal Mickey

2019-04-1657:26

In series 1, episode 8, Metal Mickey discovers he can make music and becomes a pop star thanks to a song written by Haley & Janey and some shady managing courtesy of  Mr. Jason. Before long the Metal superstar leaves the Wilburforce family behind and moves into his own flat. Wood's cruel ploy of choosing Metal Mickey to annoy Jones reaches its dramatic endgame. Laughter, tears and delirium ensue. The award-winnning pen merchants of Shitcom discuss oil plumbing, endowed robots, and Wood's Wicked Whispers.
