It followed the fortunes of 2 young men on the dole, who are desperate to hit the big time and make money using any scams or schemes going. Made by the same people behind Minder, writer Alan Janes penned all 12 episodes - and also wrote Minder episodes as well. For some bizarre reason, only one series was ever made - probably due to the fact that the show was repeated in 1987 on ITV in a prime time TV slot, but didn't get enough viewer ratings for the team behind it to make some more. It's a perfect slice of 80s comedy/drama, made so good by the incredible talent of Olsen who was perfect as Jimmy Pince.
