After originally being withdrawn over two years ago, Network have set the date for the re-release of the classic 1980s series Boon: Series 2 & 3. Boon was a series I remember with fondness when I was in my teens, a great fun show you can watch with the family.

After a bit of a slow shakey start in series one, Boon returned for a second series in 1987.

This second installment of episodes is a vast improvement on series one (and thats not to say series one is in anyway a poor series). However the key actors, impartically Michael Elphick and co-star David Daker are more settled in the roles as Ken Boon and Harry Crawford. A few major changes assist the series greatly this time - Dean Friedman takes charge of the incidental music this time round, adding much more atmosphere to each episode. The wobbly interior studio sets of series one are ditched along with the video tape and the series is now completely shot on film on location.

This series saw Harry's business venture move to the Coaching Inn, a more upmarket hotel than series one's the Grand Hotel. A young long haired Neil Morrisey also joins the cast as newcomer Rocky Cassidy - a sensitive slightly dimwitted young man who Ken takes under his wing. He would become a key member of the cast and remain with the series until it's conclusion in 1992. Another major character to appear this year is Margaret Daly (played by Amanda Burton who had just finished a four year stint as Heather in Brookside), who would be a more prominent character during the third series.

Highlight's during this year are the opening episode 'Texas Rangers' (which sees Ken take on a rival courier firm and features some pretty impressive motorcycle chase sequences around the suburbs of Birmingham), 'A Ride On The Wild Side' (which sees Ken on the wrong side of the law) and the final episode 'A Once Fluid Man' which again ends the series on another cliffhanger.

Great series to watch.

Finally series 2 has been released and thank the lordy for that!
Great series from the 1980's. Can't fault it.
Only odd thing is the rating. I hardly think it deserves a 15. At most it should be 12, but PG would have been nearer the mark. Family viewing at its best, especially if you like classic motorcycles. Lets hope they relese the following series quicker than this one.

The second series improves on the first. There is less feeling of the whole thing being shot on a backlot of the Crossroads set, and Michael Elphick and David Daker start to find their feet. Daker does a good job as the ambitious but naïve hotelier to which Ken's rugged simplicity acts an excellent foil. Neil Morrissey starts to expand into his role as Rocky, and even the ferociously over-acting Lesley-Anne Sharpe surprises us all occasionally with a bit of subtlety and sensitivity.

Yes, some of the plots are ridiculously implausible, but when they are based on simple / local people, the actors get a chance to develop the relationships and tensions between them, growing into a more weighty drama that later series revealed.

Made in an era when special effects were almost unheard of, this is gentle entertainment with and endearing simplicity.

This second series of Boon was and still is very good, it matches the brilliance of the first series. Yet again, it relied on well-written scripts and a fine cast of actors to play their characters. This series is also a must to buy, along with the first series. It was a shame that we had to wait four years for series 2 and 3 to be released on DVD, after series 1 was released. Although I do seem to recall that episodes of Boon were repeated on the now-defunct cable channel Men & Motors during the time between after the first series was released and before series 2 and 3 were released, but still at least Network managed to release them on DVD, better late than never.

This is one of my most favourite tv series, if not the most favourite even.
I have been a very big fan of the Boon series for a long time and i just hope that they do not wait years to bring out the other 5 series.
Let's hope that they release the complete third series soon.
