In 1983 cocky young Vincent Swan is kingpin at Cachet double glazing company, along with dim but equally ruthless Brian Fitzpatrick and decent all-time loser Martin Lavender However when Fitzgerald bets Lavender he can re-sell more windows to an existing customer he is the loser whilst Swan joins a family's prayer meeting to make a sale. Speaking direct to camera Swan explains how he got the job, dazzling Cachet's boss Tony Walsh with his glib sales technique, affording presents for wife Sam and their children but alienating old friends in the process.

Salesmen Are Like Vampires
27 May 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

White Gold is UPVC and in the 1980s, double glazing was booming. Cheap to make and expensive to buy once finance was thrown in.

This opener set in 1983 may not be laugh out loud but it throws in nostalgia with the pop music of the era as we follow Vincent who went from being sacked from his boring menial to ace double glazing salesman.

In this opener we see these salesmen acting like vampires, never invite them to your home as they will never leave without tasting blood.

Two of Vincent's team. Fitzpatrick who claims who can sell ice to Eskimos and Lavender, a more ethical one and who walked out as a guitarist from his band a few weeks before they ended up backing Paul Young on a number one hit have a bet.

Fitzpatrick tries to sell the exact same windows to someone who just had them installed several weeks earlier, an ultimate con.

A pleasant opener that moved nicely along and gave me a few chuckles but nothing laugh out loud.
