I love... No.... LOVE Road Wars!! I'm at the point where I think I have watched them all...

And I get super excited when I see Aylesbury on there...

I'm just a bit disappointed that I've never seen one of the policemen in real life!

*wanders back off to watch road wars on sky 1*

My road is on there all the time! its got lits of alleys for abandoning and legging it.

<proud>

I haven't seen my road on there! I'm jealous!! I have seen the main road that I drive along on there! Does that count?

I am a frustrated road cop too!

I love all the emergency services type shows too! I never usually admit it, feels good to get it off my chest :D

Road Wars / Night Cops / Brit Cops etc are a staple of the insomniac! I love them to fill up the hours when you just can't sleep. Unless there's a worra is a cunt thread on MN grin

It has to be Charlie! Pat and Carl were the best pair though!

Yanbu. The best one was when the scroat got caught and said "whey Pat and Carl I've seen you on road wars" and it wasn't Pat or Carl.

Ds loves all these programmes. He will watch anything featuring the emergency services! Road Wars, Traffic Cops, Real Rescues, Emergency Bilers, Seaside Rescue, Mayday! Mayday!, Brit Cops etc.......

OP: No but you are being unreasonable to post about it in this forum. hmm

I though that was what the Telly Addicts forum was for ? confused

YANBU!

My friend's Dad is being filmed for a new series of Traffic Cops. I CANNOT WAIT!

I love the narrator's aliterative descriptions of the errant motorists on it: 'spliffed up spanners', 'boozed up bozos'. etc.

Also no one accelarates in Road Wars, they 'boot it.'

I also quite like saying decamp decamp decamp when I get out of the car.

We saw my aunt in the background of one of the road wars type programmes once grin

I loved Road Wars/Night Cops when I was pregnant and knackered every evening. The Road Wars narrator is fab - we started parodying him on long, boring car journeys.

Oh, yes. I love the police programmes and the rescue ones. And the Road Wars narrator. He's quite moderate in the names he calls the numpties, but we all know what he means. I should think the police quite like his comments, seeing as they can't even use the word "numpty" when they pull the offenders over.

I can't use the excuse of either being pregnant nor being knackered every evening, so I'll use the excuse that I don't get out much and live in a very quiet area. So when I'm watching, I'm doing research wink. And also, in order not to be GB-centric, I've also watched Bondi Rescue, 'cos that's geography and marine biology as well.

I am a HUGE Road Wars fans.
It's known as Slough Wars in our house.

We play In Law bingo as they live in different parts of Slough and we try to spot their houses!!

I adore it! 'What a donut!'

Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Thu 07-Feb-13 20:31:16

I would really like Simon and Charlie to search me! I'm a bit devestated that I've never seen them in a police car!!

At least I know I'm not being unreasonable!! No one else I know watches it!

My name is thixotropic and I love road wars.

I've seen Pat and Carl in real life. And my house (well old house). And my friend was in an episode driving by an "incident". We're really living it large here. ;)
