Series about a team of double-glazing salesmen in Essex in 1983. Allegedly a comedy, but a defining ingredient is noticeably absent. Trundles its way through six episodes, with a few mildly amusing bits occasionally, very strange plot ideas, some very sharp scripting, and uses up several months BBC quota of swear words. But some good cars.

I think the announcer said it was a comedy drama. I only watched the first episode with one eye, as I was a bit busy with the computer (bloody softwares all wanting to update themselves at the same time), but to me, the most annoying bit was the soundtrack. Too many songs, too distracting. They're doing the same as in Ashes to Ashes, ten years ago. The early eighties reconstruction looks a bit stereotypical too.

Oh, and the lead actor is way too young for the role. He's not yet 30, looks even younger, but his character has kids, including a teenager, and the old school mate he meets in the toilets in the first episode looks 45-ish.

Various rejects/backgrounds:

- Ep1 - First 2 shots look like a modern street where they couldn't get everyone to shift their cars so put covers over the modern stuff. Includes a Sceptre [Arrow] and a blurry blue modern thing out of the side window

- Ep 3 - maroon Rover P5B, Merc S-Class (probably a 2[*] as it's Big Bad Ronnie's car but only seen here)

Other things which cropped up through the episodes but impossible to capture usefully: more Transits (some old, others newer than 1983), a silver Capri Mk3 with boot spoiler, a silver or white Peugeot 305 saloon (possibly first series front), silverish Rover P6(B?) Mk2.
