fantastic
10 March 2004 | by (england) – See all my reviews

Playing the field i think is a fantastic series to watch. Sadly this drama programme finished in 2000, bringing the fans to a dispointment because the fans would have loved this programme because it's to do with football.

The series ended by leaving it with 3 series done. The 3 series were all fantastic, and i would find it hard to choice which series was the best, because i thought they were all fantastic series. Playing the field was made in 1998 and was a programme to all those football fans out there. If you like Playing the field, then i am sure you will like another fantastic programme called Footballer's wifes. I gvie this programme 10 out of 10.
