Quotes

[Kevin Tracken's company is competing against CBS for an award as security firm of the year]
Kevin Tracken: Glad to see you're putting a brave face on it.
Alex Wilton: I thought *you* were the only one with two to choose from.
Harry Crawford: Smile when the votes are counted, Kevin.

A good show with lots of action
31 October 2010 | by ritacavellSee all my reviews

I really liked Boon in general. I didn't start watching it until I moved to London in 1990. I thought it had great character and stories that held the audience. I was disappointed when it ended but I did get to see the reruns of some of the older releases while I lived over there. It is also a great way to see stars in the beginning of their careers. Sean Pertwee, Colin Farrell to name a few. Neil Morrisey was always the fall guy. He never could follow directions and got into trouble. I think the show would be in the same line as Lovejoy but with a different view of England. It would make a good choice for PBS to show.
