Still very much alive!
5 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm happy to say that I well remember the Army Game, especially the later episodes. By that time, as the previous reviewer says, the show revolved largely round Bootsie and Snudge, which is not to say that there were no other very talented members of the cast. The personnel changed a good bit over time but one noteworthy feature was the allocation of catchphrases to cast members, rather in the manner of 'Allo 'Allo more recently. Thus, a generation grew up saying 'still, ne'er mind, eh?' in the manner of Bootsie or making Snudge-like references to a 'proper nana'. It was a great show in its time but shunting Bootsie and Snudge into a spin-off and the approaching end of National Service ensured its cancellation.
