Format: DVD
First of all, Im not who As Time Goes By is aimed at. Im twenty years old and have been a fan since I was 11 , when I stumbled over an episode from series seven. Over the next few weeks i tuned in and was extremely disappointed when at the end of that series they said another series would follow, NEXT YEAR!

Since then I have been a fan, (I was too young to enjoy the first few series as I would have just started primary school when they first aired) as soon as the box set was released I snapped them up.

I was quite unfamiliar with the beginning of the Jean and Lionel story, how they got back into contact after 38 years parted.

Series 1

Sets up allot of the back story to the couple, and some of Judy's history which gets left behind in later series. Philip Bretherton (Alistair) is funny from the word go, especially good at the party (which also has a lovely bit of interplay between jean and Lionel surrounded by what they call "children") and when trying to seducing Jean in Norwich. The series ends nicely with Alistair fancying Jean and Judy making eyes at Lionel, to solve the situation Jean results to a little matchmaking of her own.

Series 2

Starts with shooting the front cover of "my life in Kenya" some of the storylines to do with Lionel's book could be boring if gone into too deeply, however the writers keep the balance by (in episode 2) going back to Lionel and Jean's relationship, and hinting at maybe the beginnings of Judy's and Alistair's relationship ? In series two we meet four characters that bring so much to future series. Firstly Lionel's jovial father Rocky (charming played by Frank Middlemass), impervious Mrs.

I am very pleased with my purchase. This is one of the best shows I've ever seen in my life. Extremely funny but also very heartwarming. You would not be disappointed if you bought this show!

I haven't watched all of this yet, but as a fan of the series, the Amazon price was just too good to pass up.

Time Well Spent 6 Dec 2006
By Smash B - Published on
Format: DVD
This is truly a series not to be missed. Rarely does a comedy come along with such gentle sweetness that it touches our hearts forever. And that is exactly what this series does. Join Lionel and Jean, who fell deeply in love once upon a time, and accidently rediscover one another 38 years later. The love and hilarity that follow will make you both laugh and cry. Follow the rocky love adventures of Judith, Jean's daughter, and her friend Sandy. And speaking of rocky, don't miss Lionel's hilarious, eccentric father, Rocky and his darling bride, Madge. There's also Mrs. Bales and her constant weather forecasts in the Channel, Alistair and his flash ways, and Jean's sister-in-law, Penny, and her husband, Stephen, all of whom provide much enjoyment and many delights along the way. The acting is so well done and the characters so well developed that they will become your friends and your family along this pleasant journey. This is truly a show that you will want to watch and watch and watch again... as time goes by.

This complete series is contained on eleven discs. If you buy this set, or season 8 and 9, you won't need the additional DVD entitled, "You Must Remember This," as it is contained in both these sets. This is a great price for the entire series at one pop. Also, don't miss the "Reunion Special" that was subsequently released.

So once again, if you're looking for a show with plenty of love, laughter, and charm, then this is definetly the one to try. Go out and get a copy today; you won't regret it.

A Timeless Collection 23 Oct 2005
By Judith A. Brodnicki - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
We could have purchased each of the seasons of "As Time Goes By" separately, but my husband and I waited until this complete collection was available so that we could have the entire set in one neat box. We've been watching the episodes from the beginning -- enjoying those we've seen before and discovering the ones we'd missed along the way -- and it has become a special part of our evenings together as we watch 2 or 3 at a time. It's so nice to have them on DVD to watch at our convenience. Public television plays them fairly regularly, but often at a time when we're not free to sit still and view the program.

Of course, we love this series. Even though we're younger than Jean and Lionel, we see ourselves in them. It's such refreshing writing for a comedy series as it finds something amusing in our human interactions as opposed to inventing impossible situations for the sake of a laugh, relying on bathroom jokes, or resorting to insults.

One of the best TV shows ever made 13 April 2007
By Pangloss - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Months ago I caught a few episodes of this show on PBS and fell in love with it. The playtimes on PBS were sporadic so I bit the bullet and bought the entire series. It is probably the best money I have ever spent for any entertainment product. The show is delightfully funny with just the proper touch of pathos. It is the story of two middle age people who rekindle a long lost romance that, by the hand of fate, ended before it had a chance to truly blossom. Bring into that a young daughter, some very entertaining family and friends and you have a mixture of characters and stories that will keep you entertained for many, many hours. All of the actors are superb and unbelievably talented, but the story is really carried by Dame Judi Dench and Geoffery Palmer. The lively banter between these two is funniest part of the show. And throughout the nine seasons they never seemed to tire of their roles and the writing never sags. It is just a very funny, well done TV show and well worth the investment to buy it. I actually was sad to watch the last episode. If you want 60 plus episodes of excellent comedy, buy the entire series.

Funny And Unique. 3 May 2006
By SUPPORT THE ASPCA. - Published on
Format: DVD
This was unlike any series during the decade that it graced our televisions. I can't remember any shows airing on American TV. at that time having a unique story of two long lost loves meeting after decades apart? A lost letter separated them during the Korean War and their lives took very different directions. When they get reacquainted the rich characters are flushed out with some deep laughter. The awkward courting of Jean by fumbling Lionel, the match making of born romantic Judith who wants to see her mother with Lionel, the vivascious book publisher Alistair driving Lionel crazy, the perky secratary Sandy, and Lionel's lively, eccentric father round out an excellent cast of characters. Each one adds a blend of qualities that are opposite the others yet compliment each other. EX: Lionel's dour caution and Alistair's positive can do spirit. Jean's worrying and Judith's follow your heart above all else made this show humorous and unpredictable. For me the best show from English TV. since the frenetic Fawlty Towers.

A great buy on a great series for those who waited 5 Jun 2005
By Eric Pregosin - Published on
Format: DVD
Since ordering Series 8 and 9 (which was released the same day), have previously ordered 6 and 7 from here, and bought 1 through 5 on my first trip in years to Ohio a few years ago. I do not need this well priced collection (and it IS well priced). However I should include a review, as this is one of my favorite britcoms, else I wouldn't be buying it on disc. You get 11 discs (2 of which will be released as 1 set on the same day as this collection). From what I see on the picture of the "Series 8&9" 2 bagger just displayed today, the Series 9 will also contain the retrospective "You Must Remember This" which previously released separately (between the releases of series 5 and 6) and included 3 other episodes (1 of which was the finale of series 6 which at the time was not on DVD). Thus making the separate disc of "You Must Remember This" nothing but window dressing. Of course, until the 8&9 set was announced, there was no way to know, so most of us (me included) bought the other disc. Once I got my copy of 8&9, I gave the "12th disc" away. So if you have not gotten any of the series, buy this collection, and you will get it all at a great price. If you are only missing a few installments, buy the ones you are missing, but skip the separate "You Must Remember This" disc, as the episode will be included on the last disc. After you buy this set, if you haven't already done so, buy "Reunion" on the PBS label and OFFICIALLY complete the series.
