Trivia

In the "Geordie Racer" series, real-life husband and wife Kevin Whately and Madelaine Newton play a married couple, namely Spuggy's parents. This casting decision was entirely unintentional; Newton was originally cast at an audition session, and the following day the production team independently contacted Whately, who had previous experience in schools television, unaware of the relationship between the two.

If Jesus was a TV show, this would be him
21 May 2017 | by wentzeldavidSee all my reviews

Hello,

I lived in England for 9 years and we would watch this series from 3rd to 6th years. It was bloody brilliant, and is even better now. Wonderful to watch as both a stupid child and a semi-rational adult, this series will make you question if ¨The Room¨ is truly the best-worst thing to been invented. The horrible child acting, or come to think of it all the acting, was piled on top of terrible writing. However, it appears two wrongs can make a right-- as is evident by the existence of this show.

To summarize, this is like an Ace card-- it is both the highest and lowest card at the same time. Watch with friends, the more intelligent the better. But remember, learn something along the way. Or don't Its just funny

Praise be to Erik, Big Money Salvia, and IHE (who I hope would review these series). If ralphthemoviemaker or YMS covered this it would be great too.

If someone could get this to them, please do.
