Jack Regan is a hard edged detective in the Flying Squad of London's Metropolitan Police. He pursues villains by methods which are underhanded and often illegal themselves, frequently violent and more often than not successful.
A series of self contained TV films starring performers from London's "Comic Strip" comedy club and their friends. Noted for a high sense of parody of previous films, literature, and generally everyone in sight.
Prospects is a comedy drama series originally shown on Channel 4. The 12 episodes followed two East End 'geezer' characters - Jimmy 'Pincy' Pince played by Gary Olsen and Billy 'Bill' Pearson played by Brian Bovell whilst they try to scratch a living in London's Isle of Dogs. It's many themes, often with comedic results, we're 'motivated' by the then UK's government, social decay, racism and general decline in employment opportunities. Written by
This much under-rated gritty show carried on in the tradition of other greats such as Auf Weidersien Pet and followed the mis-adventures of two young likely lads Billy and Pinch on there quest for love, money and a bit of a life.
Think there were 2 series although not 100% on that, always remember the camping episode, the prison episode(they make alcohol out of potato skins and poison half the inmates) and the robbery episode where they tunnel through to what is supposed to be a flush underground storage area but all they find is butchers meat so they take that instead.
Great show would love to see it on DVD release think it was the same people as made Minder.
