Last of the Summer Wine
Saturdays at 10:30 p.m.
"Last of the Summer Wine," the longest-running comedy in BBC TV history, joins WGTE's popular British Comedy schedule.
It's a whimsical comedy with a penchant for light philosophy and full-on slapstick. Each week, the beloved series follows the misadventures of three elderly friends tramping around the Yorkshire countryside (the town of Holmfirth and its surroundings).
In a world where men are just over-grown kids, the authority figures come in the shape of some of TV's most formidable women.
One reviewer lauded the series' longevity and quirky charm by writing "Cut to some years in the future, when this website has rotted down to its very pixels. Somewhere in the Yorkshire Pennines there'll still be an old man hurtling down a hill in a tin bath."
