As there has been chat on forums about what should happen next with losw,I thought I would see what the members felt,this poll will remain open for some time and you will see the results of voting before it closes
One of the main problems is that the BBC is now run by blinkered idiots who are only interested in competing with the ITV for viewing figures.The fact that the BBC didn't end the series at 35 years with a 'Special', I feel that they should give the current cast five years to settle in. If they are successful, then make it into a spin off.
Last of the Summer Wine is the longest running sit-com in the world. The BBC does not recognise the 'jewel' that they have. They tend to listen to the critics, who seem to get it wrong all time. Amongst their mistaken reviews is the belief that Summer Wine uses canned laughter. As a member of that audience of over 300 that creates that 'canned laughter' for the last twelve years, I no longer believe the reviewers, I have tried to tell the BBC not to listen, but to no avail.
Thanks for the vote of confidence Blueprint. Like I said, I don't like the term spin-off, and honestly I don't much like the concept. I've seen the memory of some good programs ruined by pathetic spin-offs. And you raised an important point that I hadn't thought about before... perhaps I was just trying to "keep the Summer Wine memory alive", as you said, when I mentioned the spin-off idea.Well stated Garret....
