Count on the Count,
This review is from: Count Arthur Strong [DVD] (DVD)
When I first started watching the DVD of the TV show I thought, that's not the Arthur from the radio show. Well, it's not. What we have is Arthur's amiable twin brother. I don't care, because Arthur's amiable twin brother is, in his own way, just as brilliant as radio Arthur. As wonderful as radio Arthur is, you would not want to have a chance encounter with him and be taken by surprise by a man that is going to leave you doubting your sanity for the rest of the day. I am talking as someone that has all the cd's and listened to each and every one more times than I can remember - seven. On the other hand, TV Arthur, if I were to meet him would make my day. Watching the last show I laughed as a lonely tear ran down my cheek. Well done TV Arthur. I wonder what radio Arthur is up to these days... Probably having a glass of sploosh before going home and consuming a large plate of jellied ells? The rest of the cast are all great, and the writers pay due respect to each of the characters. For example, Michael, Rory kinnear, becomes less of a self-absorbed little tinker due to his exposure - if that is the right phrase - to Count Arthur. Why does Eggy live for the conspiracy theory? We find out via a theory that might explain the attraction of so many to conspiracies. I especially like Sinem, Zahra Ahmadi, but then again who wouldn't? I don't see the problem with DVD picture quality, so don't be put off by the criticisms. I shall not carry on as I do not want to do an imitation of a critics sea breeze cocktail. By the way, I want a Bulent mug for my cuppa.
