5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic Minder collection, 20 Oct. 2006

This review is from: Minder: Series 2 (Box Set) [DVD] [1979] (DVD)
Every series of Minder contains wonderful episodes. My personal favourite from series 2 is 'Diamonds are a Girl's Worst Enemy' where Terry finds himself once more having to mind Rose Mellor, who he encountered in series 1. Still as tricky as ever, she is now working in the dodgy diamond trade, and her car together with a consignment of diamonds is stolen while Terry is driving for her. Naturally Rose's employer is not very happy about this, and both Arthur and Terry come under suspicion. "All About Scoring, Innit" is another classic episode, where Terry has to mind footballer Danny Varrow, who is hoping to sell the story of his tangled love-life to the papers. His amorous adventures have got him into a lot of trouble, and Terry has to contend with more than one outraged man bent on vengeance. "You Lose Some, You win Some2 is another episode featuring gambler Maurice (Anthony Valentine) who, having promised his wife he won't gamble any more, has opened a school for gamblers. "Whose Wife is It Anyway?" brings another new experience for Terry, minding an antique shop when the owner is in hospital, and Terry gets to meet the kind of people he doesn't normally mix with. Very un-PC and very funny.

Every episode is worth watching, and as always Dennis Waterman and George Cole are magic together. Not forgetting the supporting characters like Dave the barman, and venemous Sergean Chisholm (Patrick Malahide) permanently thwarted in his desire to charge with something, anything. I never weary of 'Minder' no matter how many times I watch it. I love everything about it, the characters, the humour, the seedy West London locations. When I'm tired of 'Minder' I'll be tired of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars GEORGE COLE,VIRTUOSO!, 20 Oct. 2010

This review is from: Minder: Series 2 (Box Set) [DVD] [1979] (DVD)
Although Minder was written as a vehicle for Dennis Watermans post Sweeney career,good as he was in the part of Terry McCann,the real star of Minder was undoubtably George Cole.The Arthur Daley character,in my opinion,ranks alongside those of Alf Garnett and Albert Steptoe as the most iconic in British television.It speaks volumes for Coles acting ability that he can make such a devious,double crossing,untrustworthy spiv so likeable!At the age of 85,i do not know if it annoys or pleases George Cole that he will be best remembered for the Daley character but as far as i am concerned,it's a masterclass in comic acting.His timing,facial expressions and vocal inflections are never less than brilliant and makes even a humdrum episode well worth watching.I chose series 2 as i remember enjoying it the first time round.It was filmed in mid 1980 and i have to say,apart from a few fashion disasters(and the fact that we had to use REAL telephones back then!),it has dated quite well,it certainly doesn't seem as long ago as 30 years.Mind you,i'm 50 so someone of 30 may think it looks like something out of Queen Victorias era!And the cars may have not been as reliable as they are today,but a lot of them had more style(particularly Arthurs Jag!).All in all,superb entertainment,but any of the Minder series are worth watching,including the ones when Gary Webster replaced Waterman with flying colours in the 90's.
