New Trailer lands for “Dad’s Army”

All-star British cast lead adaptation of classic comedy series



The newest trailer for Dad’s Army hit the internet just a couple of days ago and it looks to be really quite good

For those unaware of Dad’s Army, it was a highly successful British TV sitcom in which ran from 1968 to 1977. It was set during World War 2 and centred around the comedic exploits and buffoonery of The Home Guard, local volunteers who, due either age or exemption, were considered ineligible for military service. The show featured, almost exclusively, characters who were over conscription age and derived humour from how grossly ill-equipped and uninformed their ragtag platoon was.
