Hail to the cheat
6 August 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Lovable cheat Graeme Souness has just had himself one of them heart attacks and ends up under the care of Lou Gossett Jnr (future star of Bram Stoker's Legend of the Mummy). Even though there are many clashes at first between the two (Souness thinks Doctor Gossett's an arse, but then Lou thinks Souness is a chug nut) it's clear that there's a bromance on the horizon.

Y'see Lou's a hard-working cardiologist with a cheating wife and Souness is cheating on his own wife and getting Lou to give his wife the run around. There's rather a lot of this going on (as well as medical procedure). Then some sort of plot eventually emerges involving a drug fuelled Doctor. It's not that exciting.

I wonder what the show was actually like? The cheeseball freeze frame at the end was good, and the acting was okay, but nothing great.
