THE PERFECT BREAKFAST!

What made the experience of listening to Porridge the most enjoyable?

I JUST LOVE COMEDY AND THIS OF COURSE IS A CLASSIC. THE LIGHT HEARTED, WITTY, CLEAN COMEDY, WHAT BETTER WAY TO RELAX AFTER A HARD DAYS WORK & THE STRESS & STRAINS OF EVERY DAY LIFE. COME HOME TO AUDIBLE, FOR EVERYONE TO LISTEN TO, ENJOY AND RELAX WITH A GLASS OF WINE. WHAT BETTER WAY TO END THE DAY!


If you’ve listened to books by BBC Audiobooks before, how does this one compare?

I HAVE LISTEN TO SO MANY OF SO MANY VARIETIES BUT SOME OF THE CLASSIC COLLECTIONS HAVE TO BE THE BEST. THE WRITERS DICK CLEMENT and IAN LA FRENAIS JUST CAPTURED THIS COMEDY AT THE RIGHT TIME & PLACE AND THEY STOOD OUT FROM EVERYONE ELSE, THAT'S WHY I LOVE IT BECAUSE IT IS BRILLIANT.


Which character – as performed by Ronnie Barker and Richard Beckinsale – was your favourite?

BOTH SUCH TALENTED ACTORS, I SUPPOSE IT WOULD HAVE TO BE RONNIE, AS HE IS A LONG TIME FAVORITE OF MINE, SUPERB IN EVERYTHING HE DOES AND WHAT EVER HE DOES HE IS SO CONVINCING. IF RICHARD HAD LIVED LONGER I AM POSITIVE HE WOULD BE IN MY TOP 5 ACTORS.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

IT MAKES ME LAUGH TIME AFTER TIME AFTER TIME AND I MUST OF WATCHED IT AND LISTENED TO IT MORE TIMES THAN I CAN REMEMBER NOW. A TRUE GREAT AND A PERFORMANCE OF MY LIFE TIME, SO BRING OUT MORE IN AUDIO, I'VE STARTED MY COLLECTION!


Any additional comments?

I GREW UP IN THE RONNIE BARKER IRA, HE WAS AT HIS PRIME WHEN I WAS IN MY TEENS. I LOVED ALL THE SITCOMS IN THE 70'S 80'S & 90'S THEY WILL BE LIFE LONG MEMORIES AND I STILL LISTEN TO THEM TODAY AS THEY ARE REFRESHING, CLEAN AND ENTERTAINING. I VALUE MY IPOD SO MUCH IT DOESN'T LEAVE THE HOUSE, BUT WOULD LOVE TO WIN A NEW ONE THEN I WOULD HAVE ONE JUST FOR MY AUDIBLE AUDIO.
