‘Off Their Rockers’, which follows immediately afterwards, offers a clue. Maybe the well of early-evening light entertainment ideas has finally run dry. ‘Off Their Rockers’ is basically ‘Trigger Happy TV’ with old people. Because everyone knows that old people are hilarious, right? Particularly when they’re swearing, talking about sex, engaging in vigorous physical activity or trying to understand modern technology. The underlying rationale of ‘OTR’ seems to be that the use of old folks can give any old joke a new lease of life. For example, they like the ‘pull my finger’ joke so much, they use it twice. Expect someone to stand on a rake in episode two. Lame.
