    There was an episode where they were all afraid of Muslims, in Trumpian manner, but the joke was that instead of calling the object of their fear Shi’ite Muslims, they called them Shite Muslims, which was a bit shocking for a pre-watershed sitcom where swearing was not permitted.

    The only memory I recall of this show other than it containing a McGann brother was that the theme tune was the Fabs track but craftily covered note-perfectly by The Bootleg Beatles instead, no doubt to save a lot of money from not using the original.
