YMMV: Steptoe And Son

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Regarding who of the Steptoes is the most sympathetic. Is Harold a pretentious nit who wants to be among the upper classes without really understanding why, or does he genuinely just want better things for both him and his father? Is Albert a bitter, lazy, dirty old man who can't accept that his son aspires to a higher social station, or is he just a very lonely old man who's afraid of his son leaving him? It tends to vary depending on the episode, as well.
