One Foot in the Grave 4.01 The Pit and the Pendulum (1993, TV) – 8/10

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.

8/10

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.

Available on DVD.
