In one episode Jacko reads a bedtime story to a little girl. The cover of the book he is holding is clearly Stan and Jan Berenstain's "The Bears' Vacation" but the story he is reading out is completely different. See more »
Brush strokes, a great lighthearted serial comedy following the life's of painter and decorator Jacko(Karl Howman), his friends and Lionel Bainbridge, in Motspur Park, South London. Jacko's a true ladies man, who never wants to settle down (thou he nearly does at the end of the second series). Great supporting cast especially the stunning Lesley Bainbridge played by kim Thompson,(series 1) and Erika Hoffman(Series 2-5). Always wanted Jacko to end up with her! Also pub landlord Elmo Putney(Howard Lewis) is a classic character always giving me a laugh, and who could forget Jacko's boss Lionel Bainbridge superbly portrayed by Gary Waldrom. Best episodes are in series 1 during the time Jacko's dating Lesley(of course!!) also when Elmo tries to impress Jacko's airline steward friend in series 1, and in series 2 when Elmo hires Lesley to work in the pub-QUALITY!!!!
