Great Follow on For All Fans
28 March 2005 | by (Hastings, England) – See all my reviews

Robin's Nest is another Great Follow on From Man About the House! After losing his home and on-and-off Love Interest Chrissy, Robin has been got a new girlfriend Vicky. Now he and her plan to act on his dream and open a Bistro. With Vicky's Father as their 'Snoring' partner and a One armed Dish-washer they make a go at it! Robin's Nest is a highly enjoyable Series with only a couple of problems, These are just that fact that neither Mildred and George Roper or Chrissy and Jo appear. It is a big shame that it is the only one of the 3 (Man about the House, George and Mildred, Robin's nest) which DID NOT have a movie. A Must watch for Fans of Classic UK TV and have a good sense of Humour!
