No one letting on about their votes? Well I'm sure the moderators can delete this post if we're not supposed to.
Like the other series votes, this one is hard. The first two were quite easy, Hard Men & Jack or Knave but the third had me thinking. I've gone for Victims but it could easily have been Drag Act or One of Your Own or Money, Money, Money. Not Hearts and Minds though.
Looking forward to seeing how this one pans out, get voting!
Money,money,money,Hard Men,Drag Act.People always say series 4 is the weakest one,but when the episodes are laid out in front of you,it's actually a tough one to pick your top 3.Messenger Of The Gods is a good episode,Nightmare is a good episode,One Of Your Own,Jack Or Knave (complete with Regan's ultimate speech),Victims......all very honourable mentions in my book.Money,Money,Money has long been a favourite:believable storyline,good car chase,excellent part played by Edward Judd,and a great villain in Lionel Haft.
I also think RHJ was the best Sweeney car......

I love a bit of Series 4 and think it gets a bit of a bad press. As we know the writers felt they were running out of ideas because there's only so many ways to do an armed blag. It is clear in some episodes they were trying different avenues which gives the series a different feel and the Sweeney film side projects had definitely taken their toll on all involved. One things for sure though The Sweeney was still very strong when it ended, they went out on top
Comparing The Sweeney to Minder both had massive success but whilst the Sweeney went out at the top, Minder degraded slowly in to a poor shadow of itself. Minders last decent series was S5. So I doubt there would have been more than a 5th series of the Sweeney without the film projects anyway.
For me there is 3 weak episodes in Series 4 they are - Hearts and Minds, Money Money Money and Feet Of Clay.
My vote has gone to Messenger Of The Gods, Nightmare and One Of Your Own . Hard Men and Bait just miss out on a top 3 spot.
