4.0 out of 5 stars Butterflies Series 3 6 Feb 2010
A series from years ago that is still relevant to the present. As I am of the age group that could relate to the sons in the series, it seems very strange to be in empathy with the father. A good view for all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars USA DVD format not available 4 Oct 2013
I haven't actually seen Series 3 and 4 on DVD, because they are only formatted for the UK and won't work in US units. (Seasons 1 and 2 are available for the US). This is very frustrating and I'm wondering why the entire series isn't offered to your US customers. If anyone knows why this has happened, or has any suggestions on legally re-formatting the UK version, please let me know. I'm assuming there is a copyright issue that is unresolved.

The DVD was a little overpriced, but was still a good trip down memory lane, a time when proper comedy was written by the likes of Carla Lane.

An older style comedy soap type dvd which is not dated and even by today's standards is still excellent viewing
