want to see it again
13 November 2007 | by (sacramento, ca) – See all my reviews

like the reviewer above who still remembers this after 18 years, same goes for me. In fact, I've followed the career of Molina ever since this came out. I too haven't seen this since 1989 but at the time,loved this made for TV drama. I was living in north London at the time and most of the shots were filmed in actual places in edgware like cafes, shops that I had been in and are still there now. This was a very funny drama which got all the quirks right like the Tottenham Hotspur football team invited to the barmitzvah (a very common event then as players were not super rich as they are now so they still needed to make guest appearances and its a well known fact many north London jews support tottenham). Hopefully this'll be shown on BBC America this side of the pond but if anyone has a copy, email me! I'd love to watch this again and reminisce.
