The Good Life | Series 3, Episode 5 | The Wind-Break War (1976)
Quite possibly the most famous episode from the series ever, or at least the most memorable, when ‘wife-swapping’ almost comes to Surbiton when the Goods and the Leadbetters have a little too much peapod burgundy in the last ten minutes.
I’m particularly fond of this scene with Barbara and Jerry; a drunk Jerry revealing his crush for Barbara and saying/doing the most hilarious things with a completely straight face is marvellous. Paul Eddington does it beautifully.
