Crazy Credits

Series 5 & 6 had an updated opening sequence. A remix of the original "Dont Scratch My Soka", with added drum beats was used. And an alternative opening sequence of life in and around Peckham was used and different shots of Shirley and Desmond's outside the barbershop was used in different episodes. See more »

What a great show!
19 August 2003 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

We used to watch this show on BET and laughed ourselves silly every time. Apparently this show ended with the lead actor's death. However, I wish it would come to DVD or VHS. I would be standing in line to buy the first copies.
