The Lucky Streak
8 July 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

A Michael light episode as he is on holiday abroad with Sinem, still he thinks he might be obsessed with Arthur as he reckons he spotted him in a television ad. Meanwhile in Sinem's absence Bulent is losing a lot of money to Arthur in card games.

Arthur is on a lucky streak and it is all to do with meeting the Scientologists as he heard they were giving free biscuits away. Not only does Arthur clean out Bulent, he gets a star spot in advertising campaign for some toffee.

Count Arthur Strong is always a bit hit and miss, who some people adore and other just do not get it and find the character off putting. This is the type of episode that even non-fans would like. Straight off as Arthur auditions for the ad role where he keeps falling of his chair, it has to make you at least smirk a bit.
