This week I saw a BBC "Porridge" boxed set of DVDs for sale in ASDA. I was surprised to see it had a "15" rating, whereas formerly the series was rated PG. Any ideas for a reason for the re-classification?

Funny how it's taken me until this last month to finally view Going Straight, was thanks to visiting this site i thought I'd give it a go. After a binge watch of every episode I have to say I was delighted that I'd discovered such a gem. Only wish i could rediscover Porridge and watch them all again for the first time.

In my opinion Porrridge is right up there with Only fools and horses, and Fawlty Towers as one of it not the best Sitcom ever to be on British tele. Its superbly written combining comedy, and at times pathos, with great charcterisation. The performances of the main protagonist

porridge is what I would call classic comedy, people who don't find this funny shouldn't ever watch comedy programmes ever again, I can see both Ronnie Barker and Richard Bekinsdale {please excuse the spelling) now entertaining up in heaven and cant wait until I see them again on the otherside

I believe Fulton Mackay's portrayal of the "old school" prison officer is based upon Lionel Jeffries similarly brilliant role as Prison Officer "Sour" Crout in the Peter Sellers film Two Way Stretch.

The way both parts are played, with immaculate uniform, small moustache, hat with the peak coming down towards the eyebrows are so similar even if the Mackay role is not a direct copy, there is at least a passing nod to the Jeffries role.

Great site - perennial TV.

My favourite line is when Fletcher comes down to the wing after someone has nicked his pineapple chunks:

"there is a thief amongst us."

Nice site - just like to say though, that as an ardent fan of the show I wasn't at all disappointed by 'Going Straight', in fact I think it's superior to the somewhat tired third series of 'Porridge' and not only features some of Barker's best work as Fletcher but is a fascinating portrait of late 70's 'Winter of Discontent' Britain. It's a great shame in my opinion that Beckinsale's tragically early death precluded a second run.

Love this show and it seems to be a firm favourite with brits abroad too as they always seem to have it on in bars (in addition to only fools).

Pitty the BBC don't make original programmes like this anymore, instead the make silly programs like "The Voice"

I came here looking for information on Brian Wilde and was pleasantly surprised by the wealth of information I found. Porridge has not been televised where I live, but it may eventually show up on our Public Television Stations.

Is it worth adding to John Rutland's bio that he appeared with Ronnie Barker in 'Spanner's Eleven' (one of the '7 of 1' series), 'Open All Hours' and was a regular in 'The Two Ronnies'?

In my opinion Porrridge is right up there with Only fools and horses, and Fawlty Towers as one of it not the best Sitcom ever to be on British tele. Its superbly written combining comedy, and at times pathos, with great charcterisation. The performances of the main protagonist, Ronnie Barker, Richard Beckinsale, Fulton Mckay and Brian Wilde together with supporting cast including many who went on to enjoy huge success in later roles,is second to none. Of course it has aged but it has lost none of its appeal. An example of British television at it's very best.
