Another TV classic from my youth
15 April 2006 | by (Falkirk, Scotland) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this in many many moons but I'd give my eye teeth for another viewing! What I remember most about this production is the scene in which the Orangeman beckons the old guy to his window then punches him through the glass! I remember being shocked and repulsed as a child watching that scene. In retrospect, perhaps that's a good thing! I certainly don't support those tactics as an adult! Could this be why? Another scene that comes to mind is the one in which Jon Morrison discovers that the projectile he's been hit with is, well... something more likely to be found on the sole of your shoe than on your shoulder! All in all, excellent viewing, and the sequel was just as good if I recall correctly!
