Honestly, it's just consistently funny. I am not surprised it stayed on so long.

I think most of the reason it stayed on so long was Bill Owen. The man was comedy gold.

But sometimes it's also when young writers have old blokes talk and act like younger guys.

Did they do that in Last of the Summer Wine? I always thought the characters tended to be a pretty accurate representation of people in their age bracket who were still just young at heart.

Well, that may be true for that, but there also times when it seems like it's older folks acting like younger dimwits on some shows as well.

At least they have an excuse for being a bit demented, unlike the average teenager.

Teenagers have an excuse: hormones.

That is why I am secretly working on my Enervator ray, which when completed will allow me to drain the youth and vitality of the world's teenagers and transfer it to those of us more deserving of a second chance at life. All I need is one vital component, and I'll be ready to switch on and blanket the world with my E-Rays!

If the vital component is the heart/liver/spleen of a young woman, I am NOT coming to visit you next month.
