Originally posted by Rank outsiderNot to mention, in The Good Life, a good deal of sexual tension between the two couples - particularly Tom and Margo, but also some between Barbara and Jerry, and I don't blame him - which is often there under the surface but, in proper English fashion, never actually erupts. In some episodes - the one where they all get sloshed comes to mind, was that this one? - it almost does, but they manage to keep the tension and their pre-watershed status intact.
As in all sitcoms really, the series plays around the tensions that arise at having such disparate characters and beliefs forced into close proximity. But underneath they are the best of friends.
