Now that two episodes of Minder have been aired, I wondered what everyone thought? I thought the stories were a rather weak and the characters lack a certain something. It was more noticeable this week, with Rick Mayall easily out performing the rest of the cast. I will give it another chance next week, to see if the story is better, but so far it is a bit of a damp squib IMOP.
The original with George Cole and Dennis Waterman was brilliant, so I haven't watched any of the new series. I've liked George Cole's acting since he appeared in St. Trinians with my all-time favourite actor Alistair Sim. It's a pity the new series doesn't appear to be as good as the original, but it's early days yet.
As I despise football,I watch Minder if the TV is on.I do watch out of interest in the old series to see if the characters show any "personalisation" as promised in the various interviews.I havent seen any so will probably resume sitting at the PC as has been usual.
