Lovejoy

Recommended Posts

I'm currently down in London doing some work and in the lonely evenings till my girlfriend joins me I have found myself sitting on the balcony overlooking the Thames watching Lovejoy on the computer - very relaxing.

How many people remember the adventures of the mischevious antiques dealer? Great 80's TV from the superb Ian McShane who went on to star in Deadwood, a great show in the Bergerac mould...

Cheers

Stuart

lovejoy was wicked though i always had an extra fondness because it was filmed in east anglia where i'm from, but it was one of those better gentle sunday night dramas i usually avoid. and tinker is a legend :)

I haven't watched Lovejoy properly, but I saw a DVD cover and chuckled a little and his bootiful 80's hair. I'm so glad I didn't live through it. I probably would have hair like that too. Nah prob not but oh well.

Surely Deadwood is about as far away from the Bergerac mould as possible? I certainly don't remember John Nettles calling anyone a "fucking cocksucker". ;)

Lovejoy is in that 'Sexy Beast' film.

It would also be quality Sunday evening viewing for all the family in the Last Of The Summer Wine mould, I recommend it.

Bergerac was awesome' date=' and i don't see any comparisons with Deadwood o_O

Lovejoy had its moments too i guess.[/quote']

It was a badly punctuated sentence, but I meant Lovejoy had similarities with Bergerac, not Deadwood.

Nought wrong with Marple, but only the Joan Hickson Marple.

Lovejoy was on a Sunday evening so after a busy weekend it was great viewing to just sit down and chill out, clever, witty writing and great characterisation, I keep meaning to read the books which are meant to be quite different and darker.

Cheers
