    The plan is to watch Department S next, then Jason King.

    The series was good but I wouldn't bother watching the follow up real life programme.

    Having completed my viewing of Life on Earth last week, which still stands up well as a forty-year-old series and yet another rewatching of the Beiderbecke Trilogy, I watched the excellent Searching for Sugar Man again, before I need to return the disc - plus Blazing Saddles, which never disappoints.

    Tonight, I've watched the first two episodes of Sorry, I'm a Stranger Here Myself, one of the many slightly odd comedies that were on in the first few years of Channel 4. I remember being quite a fan of it at the time. The first episode was a bit flat, to be honest, but it got better in the second - maybe it will pick up..? I have generally found that things I remember as being OK now seem slightly better than I thought I might think they are now. Some of the intercultural humour is probably not fully acceptable today, I suspect.

    Peter Tilbury and the late, great Robin Bailey. Great choice.

    We'll see how it goes/regrows...

    I still have hopes it will turn out to be 'how I remember'.

    It Takes A Worried Man was another particular Tilbury favourite.

    Those first few years of Channel 4 might have been the best telly of all time, in general - they would put anything on...



    Edit - Mmm, it would appear that, with the exception of the third, and final, series of ITAWM, they were both actually on ITV.

    It Takes A Worried Man and the first couple of series of Shelley are my Tilbury favourites.

    Shelley is particularly marvellous, but, like Citizen Smith and Rising Damp, you probably had to be there at the time for it to make much sense now.

    Banshee.
    A semi-psychopathic con man gets out of jail after 15 years and by a strange set of circumstances gets to be sheriff of a small town called Banshee.
    The town is run by a ruthless Amish gangster (I shit you not.)
    There are also some nasty native Americans running the local casino.
    An utterly ruthless Russian Mafia boss is hunting the new sheriff for previous transgressions and betrayals.
    The sheriff's pre-jail time girl friend and a daughter live in the town and she is married to the DA. The daughter is the Sheriffs, which he didn't know about.
    One of the sheriffs main sidekicks is a transgender martial arts trained brilliant computer hacker.
    The new sheriff's approach to upholding the law makes Dirty Harry look like Mother Teresa.

    I think the writers must be on something, (maybe weapons grade plutonium :eek:) but I can't deny you never know what's going to happen next and it does make for compulsive viewing. :o

    A Banshee is an Irish folklore spirit who heralds death. Believe me this town is well named. :lorks:
