Classic TV show !
25 September 2001 | by (Dorset) – See all my reviews

An excellent 80s tv show. Although with a tinge of hypocrisy, "Why dont you turn the tv set off and do something else instead ?" (to quote the full title) Hmmm, considering this is a TV show itself. Anyway, I loved this show. My fave era was the mad Ben one, he ended up in a TV set by the end of his period and was wheeled about, mad and crazy stuff. I think this show made more things then Blue Peter, in fact I was sure there was a home made bomb put together once with sticky back plastic and loo rolls, ahem, well, maybe not then.
