Is nostalgia allowed on this thread or will Clouseau be along shortly with a warning?

I have started watching reruns of The Sweeney again checking locations on the internet. People seem to be able to park anywhere. Few yellow lines. Everybody is smoking. Everbody is politically incorrect. Regan is always grumpy. Clothes are terrible.

Example - opening scene Regan in the back of a cab smoking and doing survelliance. His opening line is :-

‘How did we manage in this sceptred Isle before we started poncing off the Ayrabs?’

When the victim gets mugged Regan and Carter just take the p*ss out of him.
Remember when workmen used to dig up the road and put up those weird little red and white striped tents about the size of a phone box over the hole?

They used to be a convenient cover for police surveillance. After The Sweeney made liberal use of them in the TV show the real scuffers were pissed off as they could no longer be used for their purposes.

At £9 , l'd call that a Bargain . .
Most of the outfit didn't cost a massive amount in all honesty, the suit was only 40 quid about for an old 70s tailored suit and the old made in uk tie was only 50p from the local charity, also wearing a pair of mie army oxford shoes which only cost 20 quid. The waistcoat isn't matched perfect with the suit but its better than the black one i had.

You can get a lot of decent clobber for a good price if you are willing to wear second hand and trawl through a lot of modern tat which is flooding charity shops these days.
