Possibly my all time favourite TV show.
31 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this program without fail every week that it ran. I was never disappointed with the story line. It tells of two so called crooks who could not commit a crime without getting it wrong. They stole a van which it turned out was the property of the mob. Inside were safe deposit boxes all previously stolen by the mob. Each week they opened a box and what they found in the box formed the story line for that week. Most weeks they actually managed, by no fault of their own, to turn things to their advantage. The main characters were Turtle and his none to bright body guard "Razor Eddy" Wish they would rerun it. It was with sadness that I heard of the death of Michael Attwell, who played "Razor Eddy", in March this year 2006.
