Gone Mad?


Apr 14, 2020

Running for three series and spawning a movie, two sequels and a number of remakes in other countries, Porridge was a well loved British sit-com starring Ronnie Barker and Richard Beckinsale as the inmates of a fictional men's prison.

The show focused on the day to day lives of Fletcher (Barker) as an 'old hand' and Godber (Beckinsale) as a first time prisoner and their attempts to get one over on the 'screws'.

In this episode I am joined by comedians Scott Forsyth and Danielle Johns, neither of whom have seen Porridge before, to watch Series 1, Episode 5 'Ways and Means' and discuss how it looks today.
