One Foot in the Grave 4.01 Pit and the Pendulum, The (1993)
Victor is busy killing tropical fish and is having trouble with yet another workman.
While the clumsy emotional content is awkward (though punctured brilliantly) there are two legendary visual gags this week: Victor picking up the dog to answer the phone and Victor buried up to his head in his own garden! The dog, in particular, is one of the all-time greatest comedy moments in television history. It’s so good you wish there was a slow-motion action replay. Thank you, YouTube.
This One Foot in the Grave episode contains mild adult dialogue.
Classified PG by BBFC. Parental Guidance.
