Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The genesis of the British sitcom Wink to Me Only was "View by Appointment," an episode of the BBC anthology Comedy Playhouse. Hugh Paddick and Beryl Reid starred as long-married couple Sydney and Rene Jelliot. To say that the Jelliots were "weird" was an understatement, but they were no weirder than the surreal story lines which distinguished the series. Six half-hour episodes of Wink to Me Only were telecast from June 11 to July 16, 1969.
