Robin New to forum
« on: June 27, 2013, 05:20:35 PM »
Hi, Robin here, new to forum. I recently purchased FF series 1 and 2 from a charity shop, mostly for nostalgia. I always thought FF a bit of a girls programme, yet secretly liked it. Well now I'm admitting it, I do like it, more so after 40 years, and am planning on buying series 3 if I can find it. Great site by the way, very enjoyable.

Hi robin, great to have you here. I think many of our follyfellas perhaps felt the same way, but looking at lovely Dora would be a good incentive to watch it, I'm sure.  ::)  >75<
 >33< to the forum, I think you will enjoy yourself here.

 >124< Robin, glad you've found us and are enjoying the site and the DVDs.   8)

Worth keeping an eye on Ebay as sometimes the DVDs are going cheap on there  >41<

Never done much on Ebay, but Amazon have it, have to get it now though. I do like the old vehicles on FF and other program's from that era,.Ron's bike is a good example of 60's Triumph Tiger Cub, customized a bit. About that time the Japanese makes were  seriously taking over. One of Ron's mates has a Blue Honda CB 175, the exact first bike I ever had. Great to see the cars too.

Thank you, I feel very welcome. I never got to see the whole series, now I will have the chance. I like the whole nostalgia bit, clothes, hairstyles, vehicles. I think when you re-visit a program or a book with older eyes and outlook you discover more than you did originally.

Yes thank you, all seems well. I expect there is a lot of us guys that made allowances for watching FF because the lovely Dora was in it. But apart from that the series does stand alone for quality of content, moral grounding, and generally good story telling. All sorts of issues were touched on without the tackiness of Hollyoaks for instance which my daughter used to watch. My youngest sons girlfriend actually introduced my youngest son to it as her mum used to watch it with her. What goes around etc etc.
