July 28, 2006
While I was bugling the short life aisle yesterday (i.e. Tidying the ready meals), I had a flashback to a TV series I used to watch called Sunburn.
Does anyone else remember this? It was shown on BBC1 on Saturday evenings circa 1998/99, and it was a comedy–drama sort of thing about a group of holiday reps. I even remember the lyrics to the theme tune:
For summer long it sounds like fun,
Working hard for everyone,
It's nothing like a holiday,
And the only souvenir is Sunburn,
I've got it, Sunburn,
I'm getting Sunburn
or something to that effect anyway.
I even remember some of the key characters in it. There was the young guy who may as well have bulk bought condoms to save money, the old boring guy who once used his day off to sharpen pencils, and the person who Michelle Collins (I think) played.
It's unusual, because this is the sort of stuff I'd normally dismiss as utter claptrap, but, for some reason, I was an avid viewer, watching every single episode.
How sad, I know!
