Missed this when first shown in 1996 but recently managed to watch the entire series in one day! That wasn't my intention but I just got hooked from the first episode, perhaps it's like CJ states "I love nostalgia, especially when it's about the past!" Great fun I thought and every bit as well written as the original shows from 20 years earlier.
And a great cast to boot! Actually, I do seem to remember watching the first episode of this when first broadcast - then it did nothing for me, strange how the passing of time and being bothered to watch the series in full can change one's initial thought.
They don't do 'em like this these days and sure, it's not 'cutting edge comedy' (whatever that is?)but I didn't care.
Even without Reggie it was still great, super! to see so many original cast members reunited for this one-off (that's all it was intended to be) series.
Sure, it won't (indeed it didn't!) change the world, but a ruddy good Brit-com all the same.
If you can find a repeat I urge you to give it a try.
I didn't get where I am today by recommending rubbish sitcoms on IMDb you know! :)
