  1. David, I wonder why Seven wouldn’t have just aired it on Sat Oct 9 instead? Exactly 50 years ( not 50yrs ..and 1 day) and it’s actually a Saturday as well !…a perfect fit. I assume it must be a strategic move in that Oct 3 is NRL Grand Final on Nine & they’d rather win the following ratings week starting the 10th ?

  2. this will get a bigger audience than everyone is expecting, lots of no sayers out there but it is nostalgia of what some call simpler times. We have moved on from some of the humour associated with this show and others but that’s the great thing, we learnt, the world changed and shows like this went away as we grew up, but to learn you must reflect, sadly people don’t. if people want to play the racism card so be it, but the world is more racist now because of social media, just look at the USA decades of social change but what’s changed, it now has a larger voice and US politics promote it.

  3. Ugh no thanks. I used to watch as a kid but it’s the type of show that didn’t age well. Kids today won’t get it. At least it’s a one off and not trying to bring it back like they did a few years ago.
