Product Description

Product Description

Following his moderate success as England boss, Mike wants one last chance of the big time after an otherwise undistinguished managerial career. He’s offered a job at Wirral County – a team his dad once played for – and believes he can resurrect the side, currently languishing as the bottom of their league.

Bassett has fallen on hard times since reaching the latter stages of the World Cup. He takes the post as the struggling Ellesmere Port-based side, much to the annoyance of Karine, played once again by Amanda Redman Steve Edge, who will be familiar to viewers thanks to Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights, joins the cast as Bassett’s coaching partner Doddsy.

Following on from his time as England manager, the story resumes with Mike Bassett as manager of Ellesmere Port's lowly Wirral County. The team is rubbish, Mike’s marriage is in trouble and then one night Tonka turns up..... with totally hilarious results. Ricky Tomlinson at his best -even if you don't like football you will enjoy this. Look out for Mike’s coaching partner Doddsy played by Steve Edge, his supporting role is a gem, highly recommended by this reviewer.

I don't want to oversell 'MB', and risk disappointing anyone, but actually this is a highly enjoyable and well-written comedy, full of sparkling footie-based humour. You certainly don't need to be a football fan to appreciate it, but if you do like your footie, it's even more enjoyable. Lot's of laugh-out-loud gags and a bit of an undiscovered gem really.

This series is a treasure and I don't even like football let alone understand it, but the characterisations are superb and the acting nothing
short of brilliant. If you want a laugh and cheering up, I can't see how this could fail to have you screaming at the sheer ridiculousness of
the situations.

I am not a soccer fan, I bought this because of Amanda Redman's presence. Ricky Tomlinson never disappoints. I managed to get a couple of guffaws out of the series. It is OK but there is nothing memorable about it.

The only reason I've not given it 5 stars is Bradley Walsh and the REAL Tonka isn't in it apart from that it's a great little comedy show Writing , directing, acting 10/10 if your a die hard fan you'll love it

On the + side
-Some cracking jokes
-Some quality football jokes (but you don't need to be a football fan to enjoy it)
-Some great characters and great acting

On the - side
-Not as funny as the film. Perhaps it's unfair to compare but don't expect it to be as funny as the film.
- Poor endings. One main feature of comedies is the climax, the feeling that it's building up to a very funny ending but the episode endings tend to be silly, unfunny and/or predictable.

the mike bassett tv series is still quite funny but has some flaws. walsh no longer plays dodds, a role he was fantastic in. only a few good cracks in the series, however if you like bassett, you will like the series.
