I was sad to hear about the death of Lewis Collins last month. When I was growing up I really loved the TV series: "The Professionals". Two cool guys, plenty of guns, and a harsh Scotsman boss. I loved the car chases as well. It was always pretty dumb stuff. One episode seemed to be just Bodie and Doyle being chased around with people firing automatic weapons at them.
I remember one episode, where Doyle was searching for someone by sitting on a regular double decker bus, while it went around its regular route.
Anyway these were my role models when I was growing up.
