This review is from: The Paper Lads - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
I had never seen this programme before. I usually go through stages of wanting to watch late 70s And early 80s gems that i may have missed but would have loved to watch,so i came across this.
Its set around Newcastle - if you can understand Cheryl Cole and Byker Grove then youll understand this - centred mainly on the local newsagent. The group deliver newspapers and sometimes see things they have to get involved in. I thoroughly enjoyed it,although the newsagents wife can be a tad annoying voicewise.
If you expect the cgi effects of this era you will be sorely dissapointed, its just charming nostalgia in seeing massive boxes of Dairy box chocolates in the background or texan bars on countertops that thrill my easy to please nerves. Hearing someone say - run to me mahs and tell her ring for t'police.... not a mobile phone in sight.
For young actors they are perfect for the role, ive only watched one disc and the second says that one or two changes are made so there maybe something i havent commented on that ill update in time.
If you are from tyne tees area its surely a must buy... if you liked Jossies Giants and early Byker Grove then its a no brainer.
I mention the above as theyre 2series that have been ignored a dvd release yet kids and adults would still love to see them.
All in all if youve made it to the review section you must have a slight interest...trust me...youll enjoy it..
