- Dads army, really?
The thing is when you look back at the original, the script, the dialogue and most of the supporting cast wasn’t that great a lot of the time. But Arthur Lowe was perfect his casting dragged the show to the heights of greatness. He is the irreplaceable element a remake could never again achieve.Posted 4 years agoP-JayMember
I’m only joining in because I’m bored, but I was pretty indifferent about the series, if it was on is find myself watching it almost despite myself, it washes over you inoffensively enough, but I’ve never laughed at it (last of the summer wine was the same).
This film will be shit though, not because I don’t really like the source material, but because instead of creating a new story with new characters, they’ve used the original ones so even the biggest fans will spend the entire length of it comparing them to the originals. I wouldn’t be surprised if the story is a patch work of most popular scenes from the series.Posted 4 years agojon1973Member

Don’t know why people get so upset about remakes – it doesn’t mean the original ceases to exist – in fact it often generates a lot of new interest. If the remake is no good, you just don’t bother watching it. If it is that bad it will just pale in to obscurity.Posted 4 years agoconvertSubscriber
As a kid nothing had me reaching for the off button faster than an episode of Dad’s army and have continued in the same manner all my life in some sort of pavlovian response to the theme tune. I must force myself to watch an episode now to see if I still think it is as dreadful as I did then.
The trailer looks better than my memory of the original TV series recalls.Posted 4 years ago
