old coots move back to England from Spain and start working as burglars.
31 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

Aggravating story and a flawed premise right from the start makes this series unwatchable. If our heroes were England's best thieves in their day, what we have now are two complete incompetents. Maybe because of their advanced age they are in the early stages of delusional senility. Do not waste your time. I am not sure who the producers are but if they had even given the scripts a quick read they might have brought in someone who could at least plug the gaping plot-holes. It is a lazy and totally uncaring approach to series making. If we have stars and a decent location - why clutter it up with a plot ? Please do not insult us with a second season of this drivel.
