I liked it
3 September 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Diamond Geezer was not the best TV series I have ever seen, but when it was on I found it very entertaining. I agree it did get goofy and predictable in places, but I liked the fun twists to the stories and the dialogue did have its funny moments. The photography and production values were very good, and the music was pleasant. The direction was above decent as well and I had little problem with the acting too. I like David Jason very much, I am very fond of A Touch of Frost, The Darling Buds of May and Only Fools and Horses, and I enjoyed his work here. Overall, I liked it, while not outstanding by all means it was fun enough. 8/10 Bethany Cox
