    Not even close. On the Buses is, admittedly juvenile, but hilarious. The accents, Blakey’s facial expressions. Put a bird on it, by contrast, is lamentably vapid. It has not a single redeeming quality. Next question . . . ?

    OK, so I was born a Brit, and the internet gods won’t allow Canadian residents to see the second video (try it here instead if you’re not a US resident: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHmLljk2t8M ) so I may well be biased…
    On the Buses was typical of the smutty humour of the 70’s – funny at the time, but it looks tired now. On the other hand, Portlandia will always be “meh”.

    A bit like the following:
    Bessie Braddock: “Sir, you are drunk.”
    Churchill: “Madam, you are ugly. In the morning, I shall be sober.”

      All true. But I watched On the Buses as a 15-year-old, so my critical faculties are hopelessly suspended where Blakey and Butler are concerned. Nothing for it, I’m afraid.

      Love the Churchill line!
