As an owner of the PREVIOUS comic strip collection its annoying to buy this 5 disc, 20 episode best of collection just to get the newer stuff like THE HUNT FOR TONY BLAIR which could have been done on a smaller, separate release for us fans who got the previos set. Mind you, considering this is 5 discs, its a very good price, certainly not overcharging for the double dip.

Being a Rik Mayall fan all my life - well, since I was 3 - I have collected everything he has ever done. The more I can get on official release the better and this official release is extremely welcome. The newer episodes of the Comic Strip films are on this DVD set and they are excellent. There is even the documentary celebrating 30 years of the Comic Strip films included and this set is worth purchasing for that show alone. Some of the old characters like Den and Spider from Bad News are re-introduced to us all again in a very funny way.

Yes, it's a bit sad that the newer episodes were not just released on their own, but this set will introduce people to some of the other older Comic Strip films if they have not seen them before and hopefully this will inspire them to locate and purchase the previous DVD box set of the films.

Peter Richardson is a modern day genius, in my eyes, and he doesn't get the credit he deserves. Hopefully more people will buy this and spread the word about what proper comedy and satire is really all about.

This otherwise brilliant selection is hugely undermined for me by the ridiculous omission of one classic episode.

There were 3 'Famous Five' programmes, all wonderful, yet the middle one, possibly the funniest of the lot 'Five Go Mad on Mescalin' is not here !!! This leaves some references in the fantastic 2012 episode unexplained.

WHY WHY WHY ???

I have been a fan of 'The Comic Strip Presents' since they first aired and to have new episodes available is awesome. Great service and delivery, and I have enjoyed many hours of mirth watching this box set. Highly recommended.
