| A great forgotten gem
This was a really good sitcom from the early- to- mid 80's with the now much more well known Matthew Kelly and the lesser known (but quite a face to watch back then) Mark Farmer. It's premise was much the same as ITV's Home To Roost with the more famous John Thaw and Reece Dinsdale. You know the story; wayward teenage son comes to live with long- lost dad. I liked both these series at the time but Home To Roost gets the repeat runs on certain channels. This, however, is a forgotten gem. Matthew Kelly was genuinely funny in this I remember and this is before he became a staple of Saturday light entertainment. But the real charm was in Mark Farmer's performance as the cocky teenage son. Mark was also in the other 80s forgotten series Johnny Jarvis and the much more well known Minder. What is the talented Mark Farmer up to nowadays?
