The Brittas Empire

Does anyone else here like The Brittas Empire? It was a show that started in 1990/91 (I think. I know that second series was in 91, but I'm not sure if first series was too or not), a britcom, slapstick, sort of dark in places because everything was constantly going wrong. It was set in a leisure centre and starred Chris Barrie of Red Dwarf fame. It went for seven series. It is sort of the show that you love to hate, because there were so many flaws in the show, and sometimes you just wanted to hit Gordon Brittas, (actually, quite often) but it's also quite loveable, the secondary characters are cool, and cool stuff happens, and it's fun and funny if you don't mind a bit of incontinuity. :D

It was pretty insane, and the characters were really quirky or dysfunctional- most people remember the guy whose hand never healed from a cut from between the first and second episode, and it doesn't heal for six years... and he's constantly diseased or sick or with some disgusting thing happening to his body, but he's a  health freak! Also people remember Carole a lot, who was the receptionist and kept her children in drawers, cupboards and airconditioning. I know a lot of people remembered Tim and Gavin, employees of the centre, who were an established, committed couple, which was very very strange to be shown on a series for the time and still is actually when you think of it.
It was also all very 90s, for example their uniforms and the clothes of the customers... and there are episodes where they're trying to come to grips with computers and that sort of thing.

Lets all go back to a time....
when you could tie your coat around your waste and it wasent considered "GAY"
when McDonalds was the shit and there was a K-Mart every three miles,
when MTV still plated music and you could sing along with every song on the radio,
When cartoons were cool and only grunge bums and punks wore converse,
When you could only wear bands shirts if you had actually been there,
and we didnt use t-shirts to comment on life,
A time when gas was only a 1.15 a gallon and crime and death toll was down,
when you could wear a purple shirt ,rainbow polka dot pants and brown socks 
with a pair of bright pink jellies and no one took a second look at you,
At time when you based your day on what color you mood-ring was.
And you were trying to hide the fact that you wear wearing "SUNDAYS" undies on monday

lets go back to a simple time...
LETS GO BACK TO THE 90"S
