Third-episode verdict: 20 Good Years

20 Good Years

Third-episode verdict on 20 Good Years as well. After a pretty poor first episode and an absolutely awful second episode, the third episode of this tale of two pensioners picked up a little. There were a couple of good moments, but it was mostly drek from start to finish. Best described as “Gentle Comedy” at best. Avoid.
