3.0 out of 5 stars A Steady Series 24 Jan 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This first series of Stay Lucky comprises only three episodes. It is a light-hearted drama with a far fetched storyline. Dennis Waterman is a fine actor but this is not his best work. However it was something different for him after "Minder". Yorkshiremen may recognise some of the locations around Leeds etc.
Recommended as an easygoing drama, but nothing more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Fun Fun 26 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
It's easy to understand why Yorkshire Television commissioned this series. Though I'm sure it was initially a three episode toe in the water the actors would appeal to a mass audience. With Dennis Waterman (fresh from the ever popular Minder) combining his cheeky London charm with the gorgeous Yorkshire accented Jan Francis a sure hit was in the offing. I think they got it nearly right. I thoroughly enjoyed every episode but it just missed out on being something that could have been excellent. The comedy drama style and the storyline work well but prehaps errs a little too much to the comedic side, but then maybe I'm nit picking on something made over twenty years ago. I won't waste words outlining the plot which you can read elsewhere but can assure you I am looking forward to the second and final series (this time seven episodes) - I know what to expect and I know I will enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment! 3 Sep 2011
Format:DVD
This was fun! I watched all three episodes one after another and found them very entertaining. I really enjoyed the story, the banter between Sally and Thomas (as in Tank Engine, that line made me laugh) and would recommend this to anyone who likes light hearted comedy drama! It's a bit silly in places but we all need a bit of silliness at times. I'm a fan of Jan Francis and Dennis Waterman and love most things they do! I really loved the two of them in this. Looking forward to series two! Sit back and enjoy the fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining 13 Aug 2010
Format:DVD
Very entertaining three piece drama,Excellent acting from Dennis Waterman and Jan Francis as always,nice mixture of a gritty Yorkshire drama with some southern humour and a couple of US mobsters thrown in for good measure, It is a pity that only series one is available on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Series 19 Oct 2013

Love Dennis Waterman in whatever he does. Rest of the cast is great. A great series that I'll watch again. I'd like more of how he comes to his conclusions, but problems are solved with humor and logic.

I love anything with Dennis Waterman and this is no exception. Totally different role from The Minder but he plays a great part, very funny in places.
