i want to express my opinion about the tv series t-bag regardless of what the internet says i strongly disagree that this tv show is ONLY for KIDS that is not true. i am 19 and have a very vivid imagination and i love fantasy and have not even grown out of it who cares if i'm a regular teenager who's into fantasy a lot not me! the real world can be really boring most of the time.
i love watching this tv series and drifting into a fantasy world while they look for things like rings and spoons.
so t-bag to me is not just for CHILDREN it can also be for anyone who has a child like imagination like me!
and very soon i'll have the whole collection.
Also apart from the OC my other favourite show this series i love watching over again i never get bored of it. and probably never will.
Ostensibly, T.Bag was made for children and shown during ITV's childrens opus, CITV. It is a childrens programme -- but that doesn't stop people appreciating it, whatever age you may be. Indeed, I doubt the children of the 2000s would be so forgiving of the cardboard sets and theatrical presentation, no matter how well it was done -- television has moved on, maybe for the better, most likely for the worse!!
I turn twenty-six tomorrow (happy birthday to me!!) and as of September this year, it will be twenty-one years (gord, a longer period than matty13 has been alive!!) since I first watched T.Bag. I certainly have no qualms admitting I am still a huge fan of the programme as I head towards thirty. I think it's high fantasy content is the main reason it has continued to have a cult following -- it is pure escapism, a highly imaginitive blend of comedy-drama-adventure which transcends the primitive circumstances in which it was made. I think also, for adults, there is so much more to be discovered on repeat viewings that we missed when we were children (especially in the later series!!) Added to this, with viewing figures of five to six million at the time, the majority of those watching the show were adults -- it also had and still has a sizable gay following.
Hope you didn't have to pay too much to get the series, matty -- did you get the copies of 'T.Bag and the Revenge of the T.Set'?
All the best,

Well I am 35 years old and I still love the series to this day I love watching the bits of clips on Youtube.com, So come on Revelation and Fremantle let's have the series released on DVD ! It's about high time it was !
If Fantom Films can make a DVD about the series surely if this sells well when it is released it will prove how many of us out there not only here in the UK but around the globe are still lovers of one the Greatest ITV Children's programmes ever made by Thames !
Well, we now know a Box-Set is in the works so we do not have to ask them to hurry up any longer.
I am 25 and appreciate T-Bag for countless fun when I visited my Grandmother for weeks on end in Adelaide. I do not recall much from my childhood about it but I do remember I liked the series I watched and would buy the Box Set in a heartbeat when it comes out.
I was a child when I first watched T-Bag but still love it to this day and like rob33 I watch the YouTube clips before the DVDs came out and can't wait to appreciate the complete series like I did when I was younger.
