Underrated British TV Classic

Unfairly Panned by stupid TV critics,Tony Ferrino was a superb send up of cheesy Euro Entertainers like Sacha Distel.with loads of funny songs like Bigamy at Christmas,Other mans wives,fishing for girls and the Silence of the lambs.this was a fantastic show.The BBC only made two shows with Ferrino yet both were classics unlike Dr terrors house of horrible which is laughfree.i would of loved Alan Partridge to have interviewed Tony Ferrino.Kim Wilde proves to be a Dab hand at comedy.a true masterpiece.a shame the BBC have not released it on DVD.
