Radio Show vs TV Show
27 July 2015 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I was very excited that there was going to be TV show of my favorite radio show, I absolutely loved the radio show, I have been listening to him since I was 12 (6 years) and loved the character. The count Arthur strong in the radio show is a eccentric old man, but is respected and also hilarious but does't mean to be, I looked up to the character like a comedy legend.

The TV series doesn't capture the count Arthur Strong from the radio, the TV series we see him as a washed up old fool that no one respects like the character Michael who patronizes him all the time and not many take him seriously and that just saddens me, he may sound the same look the same as I imaged him to be on the radio but his entourage makes him seem like a mentally ill old man and that ruins all my fond memories of listening to him on radio 4 as a child each week.
