Part of me just died inside
This sounds awful.
And if its SO different to Minder, why the fuck even call it Minder?!
Shane Ritchie will in February hit TV screens as Archie Daley in Five's 'reinvented' Minder, with the actor admitting he was a bit hesitant about taking on the role. According to the BBC, Archie is the nephew of Arthur Daley - played in ten series between 1979 to 1994 by George Cole - who'll be accompanied by 29-year-old Lex …
If the script is good, the show will be good. The script will have to be brilliant to match the wit of the original. I have recently be watching the old Minder on Freeview, and it still stands up.
Shain Ritchie is more of a celeb than an actor, but the biggest challenge will be for Shrapnel to pull off a sympathetic "Terry". Otherwise it will be a complete mons from start to finish.
You can see where they're going with it...
nice touch at the end of the credits for those of us who are not only old enough to remember the series but have them all on DVD.
Let's give it a chance - and hopefully a cameo from George Cole!
"According to the BBC, Archie is the nephew of Arthur Daley - played in ten series between 1979 to 1994 by George Cole "
A pet hate: "between X to Y". Please can we have an "and" instead. Between needs two objects, "1979 to 1994" is a single period of time. You need two years, 1979 AND 1994.
"Shain Ritchie is more of a celeb than an actor"
Actually I'd call him more of a prat than an actor.
Can someone name some re-makes of films / tv shows that didn't suck like a Dyson? what I've seen of films / tv shows that get re-made is the director/producer almost always mangages to forget why the original was enjoyable and go ahead with their own agenda.
