    tv series was poor compared to the film. Dont get me wrong I watched it and liked it but the film was much better...think it was the series' canned laughter.

    I know you have to suspend disbelief a bit. Just jars with me. The worst is with modern films set in the past. Everything is always so clean and perfect. Especially the cars. Every car is in concours condition, doesn't matter if it is the 1920s, 1970s whatever. I recall the 1970s well and a car in that sort of gleaming condition was a rare sight. Throw a bit of mud and dust on them! It's really not hard.

    I watched it first time round from '76 on and they didn't show it in the UK with canned laughter, or later when they repeated it. Except one time on the original run when they didn't cut the laugh track because they forgot and thousands of people contacted the BBC to complain.


    Did you know the laugh track for pretty much every US show made between the 1950s and 1980s used the different combinations of the same laughs? One bloke built a machine full of RTRs with laughs he taped and he could build various combinations. All the studios hired him to do the laugh tracks on everything, he was the only game in town for three decades

    There is a version where you can select laugh track on or off. I sort of get used to it but it does make it a less-good show, no doubt about it. They didn't want a laugh track originally but the network insisted.
