Audience Reviews for The Boys in Blue
The Boys in Blue was a big hit in England in the 80's, Cannon and Ball were Mr & Mr Saturday night if you can believe it. Still, better than The Krankies, needless to say, I think you need to be British to understand/enjoy/remember. Great at the time, 3 stars for nostalgia.More
