Les Norton

Recommended Posts

Guest jakeyb77

Well the day has finally come. 

I’ve always been dreading a movie or TV show being done based on my favourite books. Don’t get me started on Jack Reacher.

I have the characters decided in my mind and don’t want that messed with. 

But I wasn’t even prepared for the shambles of a clip I saw with Rebel Wilson in it.

I’m assuming you can watch it on iVeiw. If you feel inclined to torture yourself. 😳

I think you picked it early Jake. This is more like loosely inspired by the Les Norton books. And what happened to Loz and George Brennan ffs!

I can hear Robert cursing from the grave. Plus the poster boy playing Les doesn’t look menacing to me. And Billy Dunne is a no from me also.

Yeah, how's the irony. Barrett was a butcher and this series has butchered his books.

It was always going to be the way.

Good ol' PC Aunty wouldn't show it if it was done properly.

I’ve read a few of the books and I’m watching it and having a laugh along the way.  My 26yr old son hasn’t read any of the books and thinks the TV show is a hoot. It might get him to try the books.

Yes, it's got the fingerprints of "diversity first" all over it. Seriously, why bother with Les Norton yarns if that's a priority?

I hope the tv show introduces the Les Norton books to a new readership. That would be a positive outcome from an average production that diluted the essence of the Les Norton character.
