Good show
5 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ignore the review as per above....Sit back and enjoy to old actors showing how easy this sort of comedy comes to them...Perfect for lunchtime viewing with some good moments..OK it is not perfect but still no way near awful as some would have u think. The two leads play rival shop owners...but of course are close friends....Compared to recent "comedies" on the main channells this should be considered a masterpiece.... Sit back and enjoy.

Incidentally is is sad that you don't see more of the show's made in the 80's..A golden age for TV viewing...Fingers crossed ITV2,3 & 4 will sort this out..Wouldn't it be great to see The Equaliser,Street Hawk and such like again.
