He was, initially, on BBC Radio London

Omg, I should have never read this thread. We get a lot of the uk shows in syndication and I like a lot of them, so I thought I would see if any of these interested me. I checked this out and I can't stop watching it. I can't believe that stuff is for real.


omg that accent..those accents...cockney???


Don't know but I love them. lol still watching some of them vids, I can't believe some of the stuff they do.

Howled with laughter at Sam Tyler’s claymation dream sequence.
“What’s wrong Sam? Is it Gene Hunt? Is he kicking in a nonce?”

:haha:

Great show. Did you also watch Ashes to Ashes? With Bolly Knickers? :gigglesnshit:


Sorry - did not see this before. :smilin: X

Yes I watched Ashes To ashes and the ending was very poignant indeed.

In this world of over the top sensitivity and foutrage I really loved the idea of a Gene Hunt.

Also Keeley is a superb and very underrated actress and much like Gillian Anderson does not get the credit she deserves because of her stunning looks. :thumbsup:

Chicago Fire seems authentic with its story lines IMO is very good.some stories cross over with Chicago PD, Chicago Med, and Chicago Justice but one has to catch them in the right sequence or the storyline gets confusing.

I don't agree I been watching them for years. They only really had a cross-over storyline when they introduced the new show "Chicago Justice" but other than that they are just inter-related due to the fact that some times the firemen have to take people to the Chicago medical hospital so of course your going to see people from Chicago Med on the Chicago Fire show. Etc. It's all related like that. I got my mum hooked on Chicago Fire and Chicago Med.


I disagree, I have followed Chicago Fire and Chicago PD and have the DVD sets
The cross overs are episodes in their own right , there are a number of times when as you say instances of different series are in an episode which makes up the story.
However the crossovers full length episodes on all the franchise are =Series two "stepping stone" Chicago Fire crossover with Chicago PD," 8.30 PM"Chicago Fire cross over with Chicago PD


Series Three Episode, Chicago FD , cross over with Chicago PD, Cross over with Law and Order SVU
Chicago PD Season 1 Crossover with Chicago Fire, crossover with Chicago PD
Chicago Fire Series five Cross over with Chicago PD Series four, cross over with Chicago Justice series one .

Chicago Justice has been dropped

Can be confusing[/quote]

Yeah I guess they have gone back and forth a few times, my bad, I just didn't find it confusing. I didn't even try to get into chicago justice, don't really care about them shows.

One of mine is London's Burning, loved that show. Gritty, with some good story lines. Right now we of course have Chicago Fire, London's Burning was the bee's knees back in the day though.

Image Some of the old cast. The dude from Casualty on the left there.


Despite in the first episodes one type of Fire Engine went out to a fire, and returned a different Fire Engine,

This was sorted out by the Production Team hiring an officer from London Fire Brigade as advisor, so many of the stories were then based on true life current incidents within the Brigade/"Fire" Magazine, and other Brigades.

We found the only way to find out Politics/changes, re structuring etc within our Brigade was to watch the show, one learned more from the TV Series than being on the "shop" floor.

The dude on the left was James Hazeldine who played FF Mike "Bayleaf" Wilson Blue Watch Mess Manager
He was a veteran actor but never starred in "Casualty "

Chicago Fire seems authentic with its story lines IMO is very good.some stories cross over with Chicago PD, Chicago Med, and Chicago Justice but one has to catch them in the right sequence or the storyline gets confusing.
