Parkinson - The Last Episode

It was definetly the end of an institution and one which I will miss. As a final it was on Top Form, and both Billy Connolly and Peter Kay had me in stiches, although that is not a good thing at the moment considering I have a bad cough :/
Plus I didn't the series to end, but all things must pass and one hopes that one day there will be a worthy successor to the best chat show British television has had.

I would agree that this was the most consistently best chat show British television has ever had - up until the early 90s. I cannot recall a real standout show from the last decade and personally think Parky went on for too long. I blame ITV bosses for a real lack of ideas in who could and should replace Parky so I'll be glad to see the back of the show.

I see your point, but to the end it was still better than some programmes.
Chat shows are at their best when the interviewer knows his or her stuff and is prepared to be a background figure, so such shows are few and far between.

Hasn't he retired at least twice already only to be tempted back by one last payday?
