About 3 weeks ago my sky box decided to give up on me. My TV comes with digital TV but I am only able only to get BBC 1 BBC4 and ITV 1 ITV3. This sucks since with sky I get about 500 Channels but with digital I am able only to get about 10 (this is a review about thieves like us - PROMISE!!). Anyway I planned my Tuesday night with my 10 channels and between airport and Waking the Dead I had nothing to watch, but I came across a comedy called (yeah you guessed it!) thieves like these. If I had my sky Box on I would of usually missed this comedy - I didn't see it advertised or in the paper. I watched it and at the end of the episode I was delighted. I had found a comedy that had been missing in my life for so long. The acting is great and I'm sure that most of them will go on to do better things. The story line so far is clever, new, maybe a bit stupid but still down to earth.
I am afraid to say though that this may not get far UNLESS it is able to make it to BBC 2. If it does then I can see the producers doing 2-3 series. It's just a shame that the BBC is putting the good stuff on BBC 3 and 4, were people can easily miss what could be the next best thing.
I would recommend anyone that is into any sort of comedy to watch this; it's a very light hearted take on a petit criminal and his life. Him and his best friend have good intentions that usually ends up on the wrong side of the law to make that extra £.
