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 »
Yet another example of BBC Americas failure to show great stuff from their extensive catalogue of gems.
This show was actually a big hit and had the tabloids going over the antics of Jacko. Not only that but it brings back fond memories of home that a lot of shows totally miss!!
I hope it's on DVD soon!!
Jacko was a lovable rogue with a way with the ladies that had any woman in Britain over 30 dying to meet him!! At least for the first 2-3 seasons. It was fun, family entertainment. I guess you might equate its popularity to citizen smith.
I cringe at the suits choices of what they release in the US, and their spectacular money losing remakes, but it would be lovely to see a show like this doing a run somewhere!!...Oh and did I say DVD PLEASE!
