Goodbye to Grace Brothers

While nobody can take away from the fact that 'Are You Being Served?' is one of the best sitcoms the UK has ever produced, equally I don't think it can be denied that it simply went on too long, and instead of telling stories about things that realistically could happen in a department store, instead wrote stories about things that might happen in a sort of fantasy department store.

Yes, the big changes in cast didn't help, with the replacements never really being as good.

This episode is a good example of what the show became at the end. It's full of nice little moments, and some good jokes, but it's all been done far better before.

I prefer to remember the show at its best
