Quotes

Mike Flex: Of course, the buzz word of the sixties was "Mini". Women wore them, men drove them.
Anna Daptor: And women drove them as well, Mike.
Mike Flex: Yes, but not quite as well as the men. And like a woman, they were good to look at, and easy to handle.
Anna Daptor: Oh really? Well, mine was just like a man. It used to shoot off and stop immediately.

I haven't seen it for years, but I'd like to get it on DVD. I remember thinking at the time that it was a lot like the early 80s comedy "Not the Nine O'Clock News" right down to the three-guys/one-girl format. Some of the content was a bit "post-watershed" There was one scene with a topless woman and it cut back to Geoffrey Perkins who said "hmmm... I'd like to have seen a bit more of that." Philip Pope, who was previously with Angus Deayton in spoof group the Hee Bee Gee Bees, went on to success in shows like "Only Fools and Horses", Deayton in "One Foot in the Grave" and Perkins is now a successful producer. Martin Fenton-Stevens has appeared in several commercials Helen Atkinson-Wood seems to have disappeared without trace.

Time for re-runs on a cable channel, I think.
