Was it just me?
I was young at the time, I admit it shamelessly, but I absolutely adored Give us a Break. It was just the thing for this (then) 12-13 year old anglophile. I fell in love/lust with Mr McGann on the instant, and have remained more or less in that state ever since. And heavens, am I tired.
I am now also a proud owner of the novelisation of Give us a Break, which I picked up in an Op (Thrift) Shop many moons ago. I even bought second and third copies, as I found them, to give to friends. Some people (those who donated the books in the first place) have absolutely no taste! It is as funny as the series.
I can't remember whether the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Thingy) ever repeated this, or the vaguely recalled post-script movie-length episode that came out some time afterwards. Well, they should!!
Hurrah, basically, for Give us a Break! It was a definitely one of the highlights of my TV watching career.
