Probably The Best Saturday Morning Kids Show
9 April 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I really liked watching GOING LIVE on Saturday mornings . Much of my enjoyment was down to the comedy duo Trevor and Simon . Laurel and Hardy they were not but their brand of humour was so infectiously silly it was difficult not to be carried along as they played a couple of hippys` and a pair of shop owners . I remember a shop owner skit when Meatloaf was a guest and he didn`t think much of a punchline . He glowered at Trevor and Simon for several seconds then bawled " I`m leaving here and when I get back you guys had better be goddamn funny " I`m still not sure if that was written or if Meatloaf was having a go .

GOING LIVE also featured THE FLASHING BLADE a couple of times but it wasn`t the version I`d grown up on , it was a comedy version where the dialogue had been re-dubbed . For example a town crier stood in front of a crowd and pulled out his scroll

TOWN CRIER : I say I say I say . Why did the chicken cross the road ?

CROWD : We don`t know . Why did the chicken cross the road ?

TOWN CRIER : To get to the other side ? ( Crowd Groans )

I laughed out loud but I remember TV guides received complaints about this classic French show being ruined . C`est la vie
