Two of Us, The

SCHMALTZY, SICKLY-SWEET, totally-80s lifecom with NICHOLAS LYNDHURST and JANET DIBLEY as proto-yuppie couple making their first steps into the big bad world of, er, living together. Much wise-crack comments and arguments about the cornflakes. “Uncle Perce” (PATRICK TROUGHTON then TENNIEL EVANS) often popped round, causing miniscule mayhem and ensuring non-hilarity. One-frame-a-second opening titles featured 2CV approaching camera. Every episode had teeth-grinding moment of “serious reflection”, a la CARLA BLOODY LANE.

    This was sometimes shown on the same night as Only Fools & Horses, which was slightly confusing for a younger me!
