- What TV show would YOU bring back?
Quantum leap.Posted 1 year ago
Bloody loved that show.
It’s time for ‘The Wire’ to have another series.
My Name is Early because the characters were great.
I would say ‘Deadwood’ but they did with a TV Movie tying up the old series from 10 years ago, for whatever reason I couldn’t get into it.Posted 1 year ago
All the old fishing programmes, even though I’ve not fished for years.

Tales of the unexpected
The twighlight zone
The Golden Shot
I apologetically admit that when my phone rings I have a tendency to say “Who’s calling the Golden Shot? Bernie, the bolt please. Up a bit, left a bit.”Posted 1 year ago
Pro-Celebrity Boxing. I’d love to see Tyson Fury v Ann Widdicombe.Posted 1 year ago
I’d like a version of the West Wing but based on the Trump administrationPosted 1 year ago
I met Hugo Myatt not so long ago. Lovely guy.
In a Q&A after an interview I got up and asked if Treguard would DISMISS me from the room, he obliged with full on eye-rolling and overacting. Made my inner 14 year old very happy indeed.Posted 1 year ago

You’re welcome. (-:
3-2-1 – because the clues were just sooooo obscure.
Even as a kid, I always wondered about this – whether the clues were deliberately obtuse so that they could manipulate the outcome.
Week 1: “well, it says use your mettle, and what else is made out of metal? That’s right, it’s the car!”
Week 2: “well, it says use your mettle, and what else is made out of metal? That’s right, it’s Dusty Bin!”
I suspected there was a bit of Hobson’s Choice going on. Even when the clues led you somewhere logical, it seemed fairly arbitrary as to whether ol’ Ted would tell them that’s what the prize was or that they’d just ruled out that prize. Didn’t help that he looked like someone you wouldn’t buy a used car from.

As has been said, Blakes 7 & American Gothic.
Blakes 7 must be ripe for a remake with all the latest TV wizardry available these days. and American Gothic just needs to be redone.Posted 1 year ago
Time Team or Scrapheap Challenge.Posted 1 year ago
lol @ scrapheap challenge. It was a good show but always a bit strange when they rounded a corner to find a fully operational internal combustion engine with exactly the right gear ratio they needed to hoist the weight of 3 men from the water and put them down on a canal barge.Posted 1 year ago
In fact they should put all the old episodes on the iPlayer.

Airwolf, blue thunder, streethawk, knight rider – anything futuristic involving vehicles really.
They did remake Knightrider. It wasn’t great.
MacGyver too – there’s a reboot which is currently on Season 3. That’s not the same either. 🙁
I’d like to see Tomorrow’s World again. Used to love that as a kid, all these futuristic things like CDs and supermarket scanners.Posted 1 year ago
The Mary Whitehouse Experience. And Adam and Joe show. Classics of the era.Posted 1 year ago

It wasn’t always like that. I remember one team spending an hour or two with a hammer and block of wood trying to get the pistons to move in one block they found. I’m sure someone showed them to the right engine later though.Posted 1 year ago

Captain Scarlet and The Mysterons.Posted 1 year ago
The Persuaders, the opening montage was awesome.
Firefly or Look Around You. Either of those would be great.Posted 1 year ago
Definitely Maple Syrup bloke good cop bad cop for the winPosted 1 year ago
New Yankee Workshop. Nae drama, spats, staged rubbish. Just good wholesome big tools and craftsmanship with a Bawston brogue. Superbly relaxing too.Posted 1 year ago
“Ain’t Half Hot Mum” – complete with Rangi Ram in blackface and the Sgt Major making homophobic insults.
That would rattle a few cages 🙂Posted 1 year ago
Quantum Leap- another goodun!
Columbo I like too!Posted 1 year ago
Some great suggestions, Green wing had another series in it.Posted 1 year ago
Gladiators.Posted 1 year ago
Think they done gladiators and it flopped, on sky iirc.Posted 1 year ago
Spitting Image was supposedly dropped because the government became too much a parody of itself. It’s way more that now.
Love Thy Neighbour
Perfect for the Brexit generation.
Anyway, +1 Blake’s 7. It would need a decent reboot. No point trying to continue it as very few would know what it was and the old cast are dying off. Needs to capture the dystopian future and battle with the Federation, and ditch all the silly alien of the week nonsense. Though in concept it’s just Robin Hood in space. Not sure if has a place these days.Posted 1 year ago
Love Thy Neighbour
Perfect from the Brexit generation.
My thoughts exactly.Posted 1 year ago
I’d love for there to be a decent weekly sci-fi show again worth watching, nothing comes close to Star Trek: The Next Generation and X-Files from the early 1990s.
And Frasier, unusually funny to me at least for a mostly American show.Posted 1 year ago
I’d loved to have seen where Dollhouse would have ended up.
Really pissed off that they cancelled Alcatrazm. The last episode of season 1 when they did a little tribute to Bullitt delighted me.
Oh and we need Punisher S3.Posted 1 year ago
All day I’ve been thinking there’s one TV show I’ve forgotten about that could be ace again and I’ve just remembered what it is. It’s The Word, bring back The Word.Posted 1 year ago

I’d love to see so old ones again, it all seemed so edgy back in the day, bet it’s pretty mild by today’s standards.Posted 1 year ago
Yes Minister – a good satirical complement to Spitting Image.
70s style OU – complete with kipper ties, brown shirts and serious amounts of theory to get your teeth into.Posted 1 year ago
Not sure about Blake’s seven. I don’t think they could capture that proper 1970s English bleakness. The re-make of Survivors wasn’t a patch on the original.Posted 1 year ago

Wouldn’t be the same if you didn’t have to get up at 5am to watch it!Posted 1 year ago
