The TV equivalent of comfort food, Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft's 1970s sitcom Are You Being Served? was British end-of-the-pier humour personified: a half-hour dose of smutty innuendo and amiable grotesques, with the jokes essentially unchanged from one week to the next. Founded on the country's class system (symbolised by the imperious Captain Peacock and grotty cleaner Mr Mash) and its appalling reputation as a service culture, the show became a popular hit, and ran for eight seasons.
The definitive British sitcom is almost certainly Are You Being Served?, which depicts the squabbles, misadventures, and flirtations of the staff of Grace Brothers department store. The show was originally conceived as a vehicle for an irreverent junior salesman named Mr. Lucas (Trevor Bannister), but it soon became clear that mocking a social hierarchy isn't half as funny as taking it all too seriously.
