My life resembles this at the moment:
And the theme music can be found here.
For those who were not privy to the wonders of this 70s British sitcom, it was about the wildly risqué situation of single people living together. Of the opposite sex! Here’s a description, from Television Heaven:
The series began with Chrissy and Jo throwing a farewell party for their flatmate and desperately in need of a replacement to help share the bills. The morning after the night before they discover a young catering student by the name of Robin Tripp, who, having fallen foul of the girls home made punch, wakes up in the bathtub with the mother of all hangovers. Once the girls discover that Robin is looking for somewhere to live and above all else – that he can cook, they offer him the vacant bedroom whilst at the same time warning him to keep out of theirs. But first there’s the problem of the landlords, Mr and Mrs Roper.
George Roper is petty minded, middle-aged and unemployed and would not tolerate any ‘funny goings-on’ under his roof (not even between his own wife and himself). So the girls concoct a story that Robin is gay and suitably mollified George agrees that Robin can stay, much to the delight of his frustrated wife, Mildred, who enjoys nothing more than a good flirt.
In the so-called permissive society there was very little permissiveness going on at 6 Myddleton Terrace, Earls Court and most of the comedic situations centred on other peoples misunderstandings of the girls and Robin’s relationship, especially potential boyfriends, girlfriends or neighbours…although not Chrissy’s mum who was assured of the girls safety now that they had “…a man about the house.”
What a shocking show!! I have very fond memories of the credits…platform shoes, improbable collars, Yootha Joyce pursing her considerable lips at her husband, and of course comic discoveries of scandalous items such as women’s undies, slips and even (gasp!) brassieres.
I look forward to hijinks such as this under my own roof:
