full of prise
1 December 2004 | by lawrence_gibbardSee all my reviews

From the early days of Channel 4, this program was a breath of fresh air reminded me of my youth in the east End it was full of laughs with a serious side as well, for some reason it has never been repeated, 10/10

All the main cast have also appeared in "the Bill at some time or other, And Brian Bovell having great success as Jez in the great comedy Gimme, Gimme, Gimme. it's also ashame when we lose such talent as Gary Olsen who died of cancer in 2000.

I just wish they would show a rerun of this great Comedy.
