| Minder 80s magic
Minder Created by Leon Griffiths was a Crime comedy / action comedy that ran for 14 glorious years from 1979 - 1994 and starred Dennis water-man from televisions the Sweeney / and new tricks as an ex-con Terry McCann fresh out of prison seeks employment and comes across a dodgy second hand car dealer Arthur Daley played by the inimitable George Cole who toke him under his wing and each week gave the job minding some celebrity ex - con football player / or someone who,s establishment was being attacked by some local hoodlums . Minder was originally made for Dennis water-man since his success with the Sweeney was looking for his own show then he came across minder in which he was accepted instantly because of his immediate popularity as George carter in the 70s cop show The Sweeney anyway water-man lasted 10 years until 1989 then called it quits with the series i think he made the generalization that show had became to comedic and had lost some of the grittiness that made it such a joy to view every week when it was on . Anyway the series continued with Gary Webster and sadly failed to recapture the magic of the Water- man years with less action and all comedy . Overall if you liked the Sweeney then check it out its not as violent as it but can be at times and in the way of action in minder you will get most car- chases foot chases and Fight chases which overall make this excellent show a joy to view even after nearly nearly 40 years it still holds up remarkably will with the magnificent acting and exquisite script writing .
