Repeat of Prog UK?
20 September 2005 | by si2006See all my reviews

I really miss common as Muck-Noticeably the first series was much better than the second. I am really trying to find a full copy of all the programmes of the first and ideally the second series. I believe UK TV Australia is running the series-i'm just waiting for UK gold to do so over here? I really enjoyed Corrie recently when Bernard's character was featured in it. The music was made by the other 2 which I have purchased the album of-it contains a song with the opening credits are sampled from. The rest of the songs on the album are OK. The second series also I believe featured June Whitfield who also featured in Absolutely fabulous as the mum. If any 1 has the full series (1 or 2) let us know :-)
