Synopsis:
Nigel Fletcher (Kevin Bishop) - 'Fletch' to his friends - is a sharp-witted chancer with no respect for authority. Just like his grandad Norman. Now, nearly 40 years after Norman served time, Nigel is following in his grandad's footsteps. By heading straight into a prison cell. The original Porridge, starring Ronnie Barker, is widely considered one of the best British sitcoms ever. Writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais are television legends who created classics including 'The Likely Lads' and 'Auf Wiedersehen, Pet'.

I really don't like this current mania for redoing old TV classics and Ronnie Barker's Porridge WAS and still IS a classic. However for once this remodelling does stand well against it , 40 years on. Nigel, Fletch's grandson is a likeable rogue and the prison officer looks and speaks like Officer Mackay. Worth a watch.
