Pointless and Inane Remake
31 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty pointless remake of a classic episode of "Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads" - 'No Hiding Place,' first shown in 1973. In the same way that the Gus Van Sant remake of "Psycho" fails to capture anything of what makes the Hitchcock masterpiece great, this falls flat on its face trying to match up.

I suppose that the programme does work as a tribute to the Likely Lads as it shows how great the original really was, and what fine performances Rodney Bewes and James Bolam turned in - especially in comparison. It is also a sad reflection of the state of British television comedy today that the vastly overrated Ant and Dec are supposedly among its brightest stars.

Offering nothing new except bland delivery and worse acting, the programme comes across as a complete waste of money. Showing the original series would have been a better way of bringing the adventures of Bob and Terry to a new audience. It is nothing more than extremely lazy programming. Comedy fans avoid.
