Over here on non cable t.v. (network channels) god help us if they ever exposed a breast, doesn't happen. Anyhow, I believe we used to get a heavily edited version of Benny, comments please....
Unbelievable the double standards in the USA - Janet Jackson showing a glimpse of breast being a classic example!!! And yet where is the world's largest porn industry? Talk about double standards!!!
If you liked Benny Hill you would love Little Britain - in this politically correct era it is like a breath of fresh air - although how they get away with it beats me. It has achieved cult status over here.
Apparently they are going to make an American version but no way will it be the same!!!
Benny Hill was very popular but there were many other truly great British comedy shows - porridge - Dad's Army - Allo Allo and of course the ultimate - Fawltt towers with John Cleese.
Not many Yank shows do it for me although I LOVE Married with Children - Kelly is great!!!
