I feel the scars of my adulthood slipping away (Yes Keith Chegwin scars! You know what you did!) when I watched this, back to a more innocent age and you need to watch it with a sense of innocence as the acting is, well, meant for kids back in the '80s so give it a break.
Mickey on the other hand is just hilarious and charming, you just want to cuddle this big lump of metalic mayhem.
I found myself roaring with laughter and Irene Handle is the icing on the cake, My Little Fruitbat! LOL
I promise you this is a few quid well spent and yes you will watch it more than once, maybe when the family is out and no one else knows, its our little secret! LOL
Don't panic if understanding Mickey's metallic voice is a little hard in the first episode, they sorted that out by episode two with a little clearer speaking into the gizmo that made his voice.
The quality of these episodes is nothing short of stunning when you think Blakes 7 is roughly the same age and it has deteriorated badly, this could have been filmed yesterday apart from the wonferfully cheesy effects, etc, LOL.
If you remember Mickey, get this, you wont be disappointed. If you don't want or havent got the cash, rent it and indulge your child side.
