Reliving Past Glory in GNSH - with Nicholas Lyndhurst
I've just recently begun watching this amazing and brilliant English comedy - Goodnight Sweetheart.
Why has it been hiding, and not been "out there" in a more obvious way?
Due to the fact I so admire Nicholas Lyndhurst, I've been scanning the internet for all the works he's been in. Low & behold, I stumbled across this - GNSH. Ohhh but why were these fabulous actors on for only 6 series? Being presented with a comedy which has British quick-witted, intelligent & amusing dialogue amongst first-rate tremendous actors, does not happen often!
I truly believe that Nicholas Lyndhurst has finally broken the mould as "Rodney" - He stands strong & separate from his Rodney character, although I loved him & Sir. David Jason in Only Fools. Alas! he's also great in another sitcom - New Tricks.
Nicholas Lyndhurst can inspire anyone's imagination about re-living the past... He tends to inspire "what if I could go back and..." His acting is convincing.
I wonder if the writers will want to make GNSH II - Will all the original actors want to make a come-back?
I haven't finished the GNSH episodes yet (I'm taking my time with the great sitcom), however I'm sure there is potential for Part II? the return - possibly as "Goodnight Sweetheart - Modern Day Marvels (1998)"
Is there anyone out there to convey this message to the writers?
I'm putting it out there into the Universe - It might attract the right attention?
Mr. Lyndhurst you are adored in the land of Oz, MiniTots Loves your acting!
