You’re Only Young Twice

EXTREMELY ROTTEN ITV sitcom that managed to stink up the schedules for four years. Easy laughs were accrued from old folks home setting – The Paradise Lodge – home to PEGGY MOUNT, playing Peggy Mount, and PAT COOMBS, as her weak-willed stooge Cissie. Dismal. Creators Pam Valentine and Michael Ashton went on to inflict THAT’S MY BOY and MY HUSBAND AND I on an ungrateful nation.

    One of the worst sitcoms ever, although the term ” rotten ITV sitcom” could apply to most of their comedy in the seventies and eighties. You’re Only Young Twice was something my grandparents enjoyed and I couldn’t get out of the room fast enough. However, it was art compared to Michael Crawford’s post Ave Em outing, Chalk and Cheese, where he played a foul mouthed layabout( extremely badly), which I’d say was the worst sitcom I’ve ever seen.
