This was shown in the UK as a five part TV series. I found it really entertaining. I watched mainly for the Elvis sound track which should be reason enough to watch it. one particular scene that had me falling about the place laughing was when the lead character Nick Neat was imprisoned down a mine. the baddies tried to bump him off in a lingering death worthy of a James Bond villain. They dumped a truck load of beer into the mine to drown him. in true Brit style he wasn't going to give in so he drank all the beer and climbed out. he then drunkenly headed for his Harley and missed and mounted a donkey instead. then grasping by the ears like a set of handlebars he tried to kick start it, priceless. i have tried to locate the series on VHS or DVD to no avail. PS the was a pilot made with different actors, haven't seen it but i don't think it would be the same. UPDATE Many thanks to the director of this film Marcus Thomson. I managed to get in touch with him and he supplied me with a VHS copy, I got some beer in stuck it on and laughed my tits off all over again. Clearly it's not as ball bouncingly funny as it was first time around; but hey Elvis is timeless. Thanks Marcus. I just tried to watch it again after nearly eight years and my VHS machine ate the tape I was given by the writer and director, bugger.
