For the penultimate episode of Shitcom, we watch Series 2 Episode 4 of Butterflies, entitled 'A Dog's Life'. (Side note - that means 'miserable existence'.)  Listen as the 3 of us desperately attempt to articulate the weighting of drama in a comedy. Such professionals.

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?

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.

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.

Birds of a Feather

Birds of a Feather

2019-04-0901:02:24

When I'm alone with only dreams of you that won't come true, what'll I do? Listen to this hour of drivel, that's what. The bad boys of podcasting reconvene to expertly and sensitively analyse 'Women's Troubles' - the stunning series 1, episode 4 of Chigwell's very own 'Birds of a Feather'. Whilst Sharon has sex in daring places with new lover Dave, Tracey  believes she is pregnant though when Dorien takes her to see a doctor  and the results of the pregnancy testing kit come through it turns out  to be Sharon who is expecting and who later has an abortion, to her  boyfriend's dismay. (We didn't write this synopsis, we c+p'ed it from Mark's favourite IMDB where it was obviously submitted by someone whose keyboard has a sentient space bar and is missing all of the puncuation keys) Anyway, enjoy. Let's have some fun! Play along with this weeks One Foot in The Game - Birds of a Pleather www.greatbritishshitcom.com Twitter / Instagram / Facebook @britishshitcom / #shitcom
Baddiel's Syndrome

Baddiel's Syndrome

2019-03-2556:24

Series 1 episode 9 of Baddiel’s Syndrome: Calligrula. David Baddiel gets all new television channels with a satellite so big it literally (not figuratively, literally) moves the very building its grounded in. His only son goes AWOL and takes up calligraphy after quite humbly bragging his teacher proclaimed him ‘best in class’. Boff. All the while, his ex-wife gets into a bit of trouble from her laissez faire policy on drugs in her club. Do you like a lot of chocolate on your biscuit? What is a calligraphy festival? Just what is Baddiel’s Syndrome? Enjoy the 2010 World Cup classic Jones & Winter classic ‘Rooney Can’t Fail’ (Apologies to Joe Strummer RIP) Play along with this weeks One Foot in The Game - Who’s David? www.greatbritishshitcom.com Twitter / Instagram / Facebook @britishshitcom / #shitcom

Series 1 episode 1 of Miss Jones and Son: From Here to Maternity.  Elizabeth gives birth to baby Roland after a pregnancy so simple, its only narrowly beaten by a medically induced coma.

The Good Life

The Good Life

2019-03-1154:36

Series 1 episode 4 of The Good Life: Pig’s Lib. Tom & Barbara test Margot’s patience by adding to their ever growing mini farm in their garden with, you guessed it, pigs. With a fraction of the recording cut off that can only be described as ‘the good half’ the boys find humour in unknown places. A prequel to the huge-faced Confessions of a Window Cleaner (not that Wood would know, he’s too busy watching Red Shoe diaries) this episode raises the question no asked ‘does naming your cow produce more milk’. It also asks the question no one expected - what the fuck are ‘pig eggs’? Oh yeah, Mark stands by his claim that they’re making Poitín. He has zero evidence.

So this is Shitmas and what have we done? Another year over, another sitcom of dross. Part 2 we're watching Dinnerladies. Bren, as played by the late Victoria Wood, goes on an emotional rollercoaster on what is not only Christmas Eve but her birthday. Will all Bren's wishes come true?
