5.0 out of 5 stars Classic James 14 Feb 2011
Format:DVD
This is simply Sid James doing what he did best. I would recommend this set to everyone who loves classic British comedy. While James is slightly more subdued than in one of his many 'Carry On' performances, it makes him no less funny. Simply James doing what he did best. It's a shame we no longer have talent like him, Frankie Howerd and Ronnie Barker to name a few, around today. For me personally, the comedy style today is too rude and in your face. It's more about shock than humour. Things were funnier when comedy make you think and titter. Highly recommended!

By G
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Sid James was a truely brilliant actor.This complete set is a must have if your a fan.The writing was as excellent as the cast that delivered it.Yes, it is a bit dated, but that adds to the charm of the series.The gorgeous Sally Geeson and her brother were a perfect match.You never quite knew what monkey shines Sid will be up to next.The quality of the transfer to dvd is also very good,( picture,sound) another excellent choice to add to any collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Classic Comedy. 23 Jun 2009
Format:DVD
This boxset is worth every penny, not only do you get the whole series, but you get the movie as well. I must admit that I did find some of the episodes a bit dated,but on the whole the series is a fine piece of comedy from that era. And if you search Sally Geeson on the web, you'll find out that she actually married William G Stewart, which was a fact that I never knew.
Back to B.T.H....I am a fanatic of Sid James anyway, not only for this series,but for all the Carry On's and even his work with Tony Hancock, but Bless This House holds fond memories for me along with a few other sitcoms of that era, such as the Good Life, The Original Reggie Perrin, and Love Thy Neighbour to name but a few, so if you do find a few of the episodes a bit dated, don't worry because there is a wealth of laughs on the majority of the whole series. And with excellent one liners and support from the whole cast you can see Sid James at his best and doing his very fine performances and look carefully and you'll see the cast even smiling and laughing at a few slip of the tongues,which makes the comedy even better...Long may you be gone Sid,but I'll forever remember you.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST BRILLIANT, 6 Jun 2010
By SSBLADE
Format:DVD
I was brought up in the sixties in Kent/England & then dragged off to Australia at the end off 1969. Watching this series just brought back all the great times i had growing up in England. The cars the streets the people. But most of all the great sense of humour we English have. This complete series is a definite must for any one that likes a good laugh. The whole cast of actors specially sidney james are bloody brilliant. What a shame they dont make tv series like this any more. Well worth every penny. cheers..

5.0 out of 5 stars Bless This House (Complete Series) 1 May 2009
Format:DVD
Still refreshing to see this comedy again, it brings back so many memories of this era. This is a classic comedy that stands the test of time, I still laughed out loud when watching it again as I did the very first time I saw it. Anyone who thinks the comedy of today is substandard should really appreciate this. A real must for all Sid James fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun! 22 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This box set is great value for money. Seen some of these episodes when they first appeared on tv back in the seventies. Sid James is excellent,no one now has his comic genius. If you like Sid,and are in need of a little cheering up then go on and purchase this marvelous box set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blessed by Bless this House! 22 Mar 2011
By adeej
Format:DVD
I have been truly blessed that Bless this House is now available as a complete series box set. This set is awesome, and includes the Bless This House movie that was made with Robin Askwith playing Mike and Peter Butterworth as Trevor. Bless this House is fantastic innocent very-English comedy. It was one of several fantastic series to come out around this time - Are You Being Served?, Man About the House, George and Mildred.

If you're a fan of Sid James or you just like quality clean British comedy, buy this! You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sid - proof that there is a God 2 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The 1970s was the golden age of sitcom for Britain. It will never be as good again. True we'll get close, but nothing will ever beat those halcyon days. And though many will scoff at this next statement, this is, I would say, the best sitcom of them all.

It's hard to believe that anyone reading this review has not seen Bless This House, but if you haven't let me tell you now that what this set will give you is 65 episodes (and a film) of pure enjoyment; pure escapism; pure fun.

When Sid James started to make this show he was at the peak of his Carry On fame. In the same year that the first episodes made it to TV, Sid was the ultimate lecher in Carry on Henry and a compulsive gambling sauce pot in Carry On At Your Convenience. He is so far removed from those characters here that it is hard to think it is the same person. What really delights is that it was Sid himself that appealed to his script writers to lay off the dirty old man cobblers and give him something more befitting of a man of his age. They came up with a format hardly likely to blow anyone away with originality and made him a dad in a family he adores but doesn't really understand. Welcome to Bless This House.

This is, by gazillions of miles, Sid's best and most enjoyable role. He obviously loves who he plays and this carries across in every episode. But to help him along there is arguably one of the most beautiful women ever to have lived in Diana Coupland. She exudes her charm in every single scene and plays the part of the loyal, faithful, loving and just a little tiny bit ditzy wife in such a way to generate a delightful chemistry on screen with Sid.
