Last of the Summer Wine

Last of the Summer Wine follows the escapades of three retired men who, after a stint in World War II and a lifetime of work, have time to indulge their own favorite fantasies. The series is set in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, where the three friends wander until it's time to visit the pub.

Norman Clegg is a former lino salesman who just wants to drink his tea in peace and quiet. Foggy Dewhurst, on the other hand, longs for military glory, and often asks strangers, if you wanted to control this street, where would you place your machine gun?

Compo Simonite is a ne'er-do-well who's reached the age where it doesn't matter. He's liked by just about everyone, except for his neighbor Nora Batty. Compo has an inexplicable attraction to Nora, who is large, fierce, and chases him off with a broom. Compo is not to be deterred, and one time shows up on her doorstep gift-wrapped.

The series also has other characters, such as Howard, who has an innocent flirtation with Marina that he's trying to keep from his wife Pearl. When Marina's mentioned, he immediately says that he hardly knows the lady.
