    Judging by your latest avatar, your arse needs a shave! Or are you using a Series 7 Braun shaver that hifi_dave was complaining about, with the cutters becoming blunt within a couple of months?

    Nothing wrong with a bit of stubble.

    Has anyone seen any of the Italian spaghetti westerns called Trinity, and Trinity is my name?

    I used to watch them all the time on VHS when I was a kid. The local video shop (remember those) were selling them off and I bought them. One of the guys names was Bud Spencer?

    They were cool at the time... Don't know if they are on bluray or anything. Probably quite naff now. I've not seen them in decades.

    I want to get the professionals, the sweeney, and Randall and hopkirk on bluray.

    I remember those. I seem to have recollections of badly synced English dubbed voices.

    Haha... How cool. Didn't think anyone would have seen them.. Yes, the dubbing was dreadful but they were fun to watch.

    The occasional one gets shown on Freeview channels, as do The Professionals and Randall and Hopkirk. Don't recall seeing The Sweeney though.

    Yeah, the sweeney is on at the mo in the week. But like the professionals they are probably 2nd generation copies as the picture quality is pretty dire in places.

    And the sound is wobbly as a wagon with a square wheel. Whoever did the sound dubs must have used a really worn out machine. Kind of nice that though, makes it sound not digital.
