Aside: has anyone noticed recently just how bad the BBC are at reporting the deaths of their own stars/presenters? Gerald Sim, Pamela Cundell and now Tom Coyne all without so much as a mention. Yet they will repeat the shows and have talking heads talking about the days of yore....never really noticed until I started on here.

 

To be fair it is not just the BBC.

 

Jeffrey Segal is missing everywhere.

 

 

As is Stanley Lebor.

Yup.

 

You'd think they didn't want people to know that once upon a time the BBC produced programs you actually wanted to watch with presenters who could present and actors who could actually act. At this rate David Dimbleby won't even make the Six 'o' Clock news, I mean there already prevent him from presenting half of this years general election and completely shifting him out of the next one and the dudes only 76. You'd think they would find someone better to replace him but instead we have to suffer through Huw Edwards this year and next election.

 

Huw Fuuuuckkkkkkingggg!!!!!!! Edwards!!!!!!!!!

Has there ever been a funny sitcom with a fat bird in it?

Roseanne doesn't count as it wasn't her that was funny.

The Vicar of Dibley?

 

 

For this scene alone

You probably didn't get it over there (you were lucky if true) but a tenuous name I'll throw is the Drew Carey Show. The main gal was decent looking enough, but the sarcastic female foil to Carey at his office work environment was a hefty one to say the least. Whether she or the show was 'funny' I leave to the critics or individuals.

Yes , she bulked up iimr. But was it 'funny' at that point?

Nurse Gladys in Open All Hours may count, but again she wasn't the funny shtik.
