Chico And The Man

Postby Archie » Thu Jan 11, 2007 10:23 pm

Another American 70's show with a Steptoe theme was 'Chico and The Man' the series was definitely shown in the UK I well remember watching it.

Set in LA; The Man was a grumpy owner of a run down garage, the actor played Charlie's grandfather in the movie 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'.
Chico was a young Mexican mechanic who lived in a camper van in the garage yard, the Man and he constantly argued about the permissive society, money and a host of other thing's but like Harold & Albert remained friend's.

Sadly t the actor who played Chico later committed suicide !.

Archie,

I still have that excellent region-free player you recommended and that web link you posted helped me unlock my new home cinema system, so I might give it a shot myself...

BTW check your private mail on this site if you haven't already as I may have something for you in your favour...
