TV: S is for...


IF DEMPSEY AND MAKEPEACE and CATS EYES hadn’t already proved that us Brits are pretty poor at this fast-paced, action-packed crime show malarkey, this dire Central effort, like Yorkshire’s ambitious Hong Kong-based YELLOWTHREAD STREET, hammered the point home. Bland PROFESSIONALS-style duo combated loony terrorist scum in one-dimensional scrapes devoid of C15’s homoerotic slash fiction subtext. This kind of stuff was really much better left to the Yanks.

    See also Central’s TECX, of the same era – a Brussels-based psuedo-Bugs ITC homage with a decent cast – Jenny Agutter, Neil Dudgeon, STEPHANE AUDRAN (!), Urbano Barberini and featuring a young Mark Strong

    One that passed me by, but it sounds like I didn’t miss much. Same with TECX.
