| Old Laaandun Taaan!
Cor blimey - Old Laaandun Taaan was never like this, was it?

It's 2017 - I'm watching this for the first time... and it's aged horribly. But I have a feeling that this is down to me rather than the series. The searingly honest and uncomfortably accurate portrayal of a depressing London during the Margeret Thatcher years is hard to watch.

This is an ambitious production and the drama moves at a rapid clip so you have to pay attention. But the scenery, the clubs, the cars, the general downbeat working class lives are all hard to stomach. It's just TOO realistic. It's 'Only fools and horses!' without the humor!

The highlight of this series is Anthony Valentine better known for his immaculate role in the classic Raffles.

There's not much here for a modern audience to enjoy. The music, the padded shoulders, the hair (oh, the hair!) and the language all seem a bit cheesy now... but if you're a product of the 90s then this may just remind you just how horrible it all was!

If I was grading this when it first came out I'd have easily given it an 8 or 9... but it's a 4 today. :(
