5.0 out of 5 stars The ONLY version 23 Mar 2007
Verified Purchase
Ignore the uninformed reviewer above, the series 2 episodes included in this set are, so far, the only versions in existance. The original master tapes were not available, therefore they fade out/in whenever the 'end of part one/part two titles would have appeared. They dont spoil your enjoyment of the episodes in any way. They are not mastered from the half hour repeats in the eighties, otherwise all of Oz's swearing would be cut! Carlton went to lot of effort to master these discs, after the apalling vhs editions a few years back. These also include the full scene edited for music copyright, not all present in the vhs editions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Auf Wiedersehen Pet - Brilliant 29 Oct 2009
Take seven different lads from different backgrounds, throw them together on a building site in Germany and get to know them over a dozen episodes ... it doesn't sound much of a concept for a hit drama/comedy but Auf Wiedersehen Pet was the surprise hit of the early eighties. In the hands of lesser actors I doubt if it would have worked but somehow the mix of established actors and newbies (at the time) worked a treat.

The stories are brilliantly written and you can't help but feel a genuine affection for the boys. These are the guys you always wanted to have as your mates - no matter how annoying, interfering, boorish and loud they could be - you know you could count on them. The first series always finished off with the rollickingly good tune of "Livin' All Right". No other closing theme ever came close to this in any of the other Auf Wiedersehen Pet serials. It summed the boys up - they worked hard and they played hard.

This DVD has it all - drama and comedy. Genuine touches of genius ... and Oz!

The picture needs the digital treatment but all in all I would recommend this to anyone who fancies a laugh on a cold winters night.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the original version 23 Oct 2005
By A Customer
Great series - just a shame that this DVD version of the 2 series is the cut/shortened one when the series was repeated to make way for extra adverts. This is NOT as it was originally broadcast first time around.
This fact aside, the series is great and is well worth the purchase. I was disappointed when I realised what they had done to it, but it soon passed.
