    I remember Boon well.

    Michael Elphick played 2 great cameo characters on tv/film - the mad Irishman in Auf Wiedersehen Pet and the poacher in Withnail & I.

    It also kicked off the career of Neil Morrissey who played Rocky!

    I loved watching “Three’s Company” & “The Fall Guy” when I was a young lad back in the 80’s.

    I'm rewatching Auf Weidersehn Pet and it's fu*cking brilliant.
    I watched it as a kid and I always thought it was a drama with some comedy, but now I realise it's the other way around and a lot of the jokes just went over my head when I first saw it.
    Almost finished season 2 and it's become one of my favourite shows.
    I never saw the later reunion seasons so I'm looking forward to them.

    Its a belter of a series. I was a teenager when it came out in the mid80s and I loved it then.

    The re-union shows were ok. I think there were 3 as well as a last one-off in Thailand.

    I loved Series 2 best divided between Thornley Manor and Spain. Oz copping off with the Taxman who took Wayne's car was priceless!!

    Look at the internal hotel shots in Spain in Series 2. Gary Holton, who played Wayne, died of an overdose before the internal filming was complete. The outdoor filming was done but you will see various references, in the indoor scenes, to Wayne being in bed or out. There are some scenes where he was necessary and they used an actor with a wig standing with his back to the camera!

    And two cracking theme songs as well!

    I knew he died before season 2 had finished and was wondering how they dealt with it.
    I didn't notice the all references to his absence so it obviously worked.
    I think Pat Roach sadly died before the final Thailand episode.

    Started to watch “Bottom” on Netflix last week. A mate told me about it. I’ve never seen it before. Jesus the two lads are gas. It’s easy to watch . Some of the old stuff is bloody gas.
