Reunion Let Down
on 13 July 2014
I have the complete series of 'As Time Goes By' on DVD, and have watched it repeatedly, and it is one of my favourite ever series. But, 'The Reunion Specials' is a big let down, and I seriously wouldn't recommend it. Because this was filmed long after the original series it has made a huge difference. The actors have 'lost' the characters, due to the passage of time, and two episodes is not long enough for them to get back into their characters. The actors are so obviously much older, and I struggled to understand what Geoffrey Palmer was actually saying, and he just looked bored. The comic timing from the original series was not there, and the actors came across as 'only doing this for the money'. If you are a big fan of 'As Time Goes By' don't ruin the memory of it by watching 'The Reunion Specials', this DVD adds nothing to the original series and, for me, was a complete waste of money. I yawned all the way through.
