The John Larroquette ShowThe John Larroquette Show
NBC, 1993 Cancelled/Ended | Comedy
Rating: 2/5

A fascinating case study in how to destroy a successful situation comedy. In its first season The John Larroquette Show was a daring dark comedy and a hit. Set in a St. Louis long distance bus terminal, with a recovering alcoholic protagonist adrift in a sea of losers, hookers, and street people, black and white, gay and straight, this was unlike anything seen in a sitcom since Hot'l Baltimore a generation before, a comedy that addressed issues on the dark side of the American dream: race, class, gender, abuse of authority, substance addiction, etc. In the second and third season NBC carefully removed each and every element that had made the show interesting, making nonsense of a premise and bland stereotypes of its hard-edged/bizarre characters, then cancelled the show abruptly once everyone had deserted its ridiculously bland fourth season; a great shame.


Love Thy NeighbourLove Thy Neighbour
ITV, 1972 Cancelled/Ended | Comedy

Love Thy Neighbour is a British sitcom, which was transmitted from 13 April 1972 until 22 January 1976, spanning seven series and fifty-four episodes. The series was produced by Thames Television for the ITV network. A hugely popular sitcom highlighting and examining the clashes of class, and colour, in early-1970s Britain. Eddie Booth is a passionately left-wing, somewhat racist bigot, so when his new neighbours turn out to be black, he's far from pleased. But even worse than that - they vote Conservative. Understandably, Eddie puts Bill's back up right from the off. Despite their differences, however, each man is far more alike the other than either would admit, and a begrudging respect develops between them. After all, there is a common enemy: their wives!
