Really, really loved this show...
1 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Good to see that there are other "Profit" fans out there.

Finally I found the original title of my favourite series. have been looking all over the place, not quite been able to remember the title, but then I got some unexpected help form an old friend. Too bad it got cancelled so soon, too soon for my liking.

This is truly one of the greatest tv series of all time...no kidding... Hopefully it will appear on dvd soon (fingers crossed)or appears on tv again some time in the future (fingers crossed yet again...).
