RIP Mr. Humphreys


Are You Being Served was actually a fairly terrible show by any objective standard (who's up for ANOTHER goddamn "joke" about Mrs. Slocombe's "pussy?"), but Mr. Humphreys was a pretty appealing fellow. I don't really understand the criticism (mentioned in the obit) from gay rights activists--sure, he was swishy, but he was pretty much a completely positive character, not to mention the only competent one on the staff.

So yes. Sad times.
