City Lights (1984) (Excellent Comedy)
21 June 2012 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This was one of the the best comedy series viewable in NZ in the 1980's

We enjoyed the antics of Willie Melvin and Chancer immensely and everyone who appeared on this series were terrific and we have never forgotten this series and have been talking about it for almost 20 years It is one for the best written and acted comedies we have seen in a long long time.

We loved this comedy and have been trying to track down the name of this comedy for years and finally we know it's City Lights but we are so disappointed after phoning BBC UK and Scotland and finding out it wasn't released and we can't believe it WHY NOT? This was one of the funniest comedies ever written and screened. The Scottish people should be proud of the actors involved they were excellent so why hide let another generatiion view it?

Please!! have this comedy released on DVD so we can spend our latter years laughing as we did when we were younger and I'm sure many people like us will be very happy and very grateful.
