    Hi,

    For those of you, who have long memories, in the mid-1980's, an intelligent and steamy crime drama film was released, starring Ellen Birkin and Dennis Quaid. Entitled "The Big Easy", it was fairly successful, and has done reasonable business on video and DVD.

    About ten years later, a spin-off TV show was made, with the same name. Running for just 34 episodes, over 2 seasons, it's never been seen in the UK ever.

    Well, now, as of tonight on ITV3, you can see the "Pilot" episode of the show. It starts at 9pm tonight, and could be worth a viewing. As I've never seen the film or the show, I can't comment on if it's any good or not, so don't hate me if it turns out to be :censored:, but do feel free to praise me, if it's any good! :laugh:

    Episode list... here!

    I cannot say the film was that great, the most memorable thing I can remember about it was a trick with an industrial strength magnet.

    I'm sure I have seen the series before as well.
    I must not have been a fan of it since I have forgotten about it. :zonked:

    Hi,

    In fact, it was the old "Sky Two" channel that aired a few "random episodes from Season 1, but because of lousy viewing figures, the show was dropped and replaced with something else. As such, this is the first time all the episodes will be shown, and in the original and correct running order! :)
