    Birds of a feather commissioned series 13 Canceled by ITV.

    I think this elevates Red Dwarf into second place in longest running Uk sitcom by year of first broadcast. currently 1988 to 2017 besting feather by about a year.

    Equal by series count at 12, currently with feather maybe ahead by a special. So all the more reason for hoping RD XIII can be a thing. Just to clarify this!

    Shut up Children’s tv sitcoms are just kids shows. Adults are talking.

    Dwarf will never beat the number 1 though. The classic
    Three men in a bath. At 205 series. And still going strong now with lead cast jasper carrot,
    Nigel planner and a cgi hologram of Peter Sallis voiced by Ben Whitehead.

    Calling Red Dwarf the “longest running” anything really stretches the meaning of the word “running”, doesn’t it?

    It is to the TV Broadcasting, what Jimmy Saville was to marathons.

    Nothing will ever beat Summer Wine. Nobody in this day and age would be ludicrous enough to recommission a sitcom to run to 37 series.

    Not Going Out is catching up, a 10th series has been commissioned.

    Pretty impressive for a show that was originally cancelled after its third series.

    I think the REAL question is, which one of the Dwarfers would shag Dorian from BOAF ;)

    #244108

    GlenTokyo

    Rimmer, obviously. He’s the only one that ever gets any.

    I think the boys would react to Sharon and Tracy as if they were the skeletons from the Nova 5.

    I now want to see a parody of the open title sequence with the Birds of the Feather theme playing

    #244442

    A parody would be even better if they have shots of little girls and women like in the BOAF title sequence (Rimmer: Remember when we were little girls, Lister?)

    The Birds of a Feather theme has to be one of the saddest themes of any TV show ever, I don’t even like to hear it.

    Maybe it’s a combination of the song and some kind of repressed mid 90s memories, but goddamn that theme makes me miserable.

    BOAF always struck me as a poor man’s The Golden Girls with weaker scripts, acting and budget.

    I’m about to say something nice about Birds of a Feather. The BBC’s opening credits sequence with the photos of the sisters as young girls, and at each other’s weddings while the theme plays is a brilliant piece of telly. I have finished saying something nice about Birds of a Feather.

    My mum loves it when people say she looks like Dorien from Birds of a Feather. She must have been delighted when they brought it back, to remind people who might have forgotten.

    Good. Now don’t let it happen again.

    Bizarre to see it being criticised for its budget though. What more money did it need? It’s not like it’s full of spacewalk sequences that don’t hold up today or inadequately orchestrated motorbike chases.

    I used to sing the theme tunes to Birds of a Feather and Cheers to my then-unborn daughter. But she doesn’t remember.

    I liked it, not top tier but it wasn’t bad. It was refreshing how at times how non PC it was. No wonder the Beeb didn’t want it.

    #245019

    They should have done a “Dorien gets raped” episode to boost ratings, like that A Current Affair host in the USA who faked her rape to revive public interest in her show ;)

    Well this thread certainly took a strange turn. Feels like we’re one post away from a Pepe the Frog avatar.

    I’m horrible about Dorien but i hate her for the same reason i hate her American counterpart on the Golden Girls. No real human being is like that.

    shouldn’t that be 4Chen ??

    Series XIII news can’t come soon enough.

    #245061

    International Debris

    Does anyone else here dislike series VIII?

    #245064

    Captain Bollocks

    Not really, although I did laugh at the bit where Sharon did a double-take after taking a presumably pungent plop.

    #245065

    Pete Part Three

    Was that the series where they get to sent to the same prison as their partners, and Dorian loses control of her vagina?

    #245123

    Well, “hysteria” *does* mean wandering womb…

    Fuck me, this is getting grim.

    I nominate this thread for fucking shite status.

    #245226

    Pete Part Three

    Yeah, sorry. My comment was a rubbish attempt at a Series VIII / Archie dig. It didn’t really work and I curse the lack of an edit button,
