Product Description

Product Description

Three more episodes with the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard. In 'Is There Still Honey for Tea?', the platoon help out Private Godfrey when his cottage comes under threat from a new airfield. 'Come In Your Time is Up' sees Mainwaring and company attempting to bring in a German platoon stranded in a dinghy. In 'High Finance', Jones gets into hot water when Mainwaring discovers that his bank account is still in the red.

From Amazon.co.uk

Five fine episodes of the evergreen Home Guard sitcom here. Dad's Army endures because it combines a healthy dollop of self-mockery with a sense of pride in Britain's lonely defiance against Hitler's might in 1940, encapsulated in the pompous and incompetent yet courageous Captain Mainwaring. Arthur Lowe is sublime in this role. Though he generally acts as a foil to his flippant platoon of funny stereotypes (Walker, Frazier, Godfrey, etc.), his subtle double-takes and apoplectic facial expressions of exasperation are endlessly hilarious. Corporal Jones' doddery recklessness can generally be relied upon to culminate in a finale involving trousers, cries of "Don't panic!" and chases across country but the masterstroke of this series was the casting against type of John Le Mesurier as the vague, aristocratic Sergeant and Lowe as his military but not social superior. These episodes include "The Day The Balloon Went Up" (a typically frantic caper involving a stray barrage balloon), "The Two And A Half Feathers" (including a wonderful Jonesy flashback to his days in the Sudan) and "The Deadly Attachment", in which Pike cheeks the captain of a captive U-Boat crew, who demands his name to add to his "list" of insolent Englanders. "Don't tell him, Pike!" urges Mainwaring. --David Stubbs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have watched this video many times and it never ceases to make me laugh. It's full of the usual one-liners "stupid boy", "do you think that's wise", etc. The episode "The Deadly Attachment" contains the famous scene with Pike having his name added to the German captain's list. Nearly all of the actors are dead now so this video remains a tribute to a series the likes of which we will never see again.

This video has three of my very favourite episodes. 'Man Hunt' is the one where Walker finds a parachute and has it made into ladies' knickers and they have to go around trying to find out what colour they are, to determine whether it was a British or German parachute. Then they get a hopeless tracker dog to try and track down any stray Germans who might turn up the area. "Sergeant, Save My Boy" is the one where Pike gets caught on some barbed wire on the seashore with the tide coming in, and they have to make their way through a minefield to get to him, using Jones's famous bayonet to test the sand for mines. "Don't Fence me In" is the one where they have to take charge of an Italian prisoner of war camp while the Polish guards go away for a weekend. The Italian prisoners are very laid-back and don't take kindly to being bossed around by Mainwaring, then it seems that Walker is helping them to escape and may be a traitor, or is he? This is possibly my favourite episode of all , the bit where some of the prisoners are trying to get back into the camp through the tunnel, and Mainwaring and Jones are trying to stop the visiting officer from finding out what is going on, is absolutely hilarious. This series simply had an unbeatable combination of brilliant actors, hilarious scripts, and a wonderful aatmosphere. And these are three of the most perfect episodes.

The people who chose which episodes went together on these video volumes always liked putting two good episodes with one of the weaker ones (or maybe it's just me).
"Sergeant Wilson's Little Secret" and "Everybody's Trucking" were both great examples of Dad's Army humour. The former was originally filmed in colour, but sadly it was destroyed by the BBC and had to be restored from a black-and-white version of the episode which had been shipped abroad for overseas transmission. The story focuses around Sergeant Wilson's panic when Mrs. Pike begins to talk about having a child, and he assumes that he's made her pregnant. Of course, there's more to it than that, but you'll have to watch it to find out. ;-)
"Everybody's Trucking" in my opinion was one of the strongest episodes in the series, with brilliant characterisation, some great lines, and a running gag in which several large vehicles get stuck by the side of a country road. A definite must-see!
"Things That Go Bump In The Night" was one of my less favourite episodes. It's full of slapstick, which is great if you like that sort of thing, but not much thought went into it, and there really weren't any intelligent lines that made me laugh. Still, on the basis of the other two episodes, call it four stars.

This is one of the most funny Dad's Army episodes I've seen! The first episode, Turkey Dinner, shows how L.Cpl Jones kills a turkey, feeling guilty the platoon decide to give the local pensioners a turkey dinner...the episode just blossoms from there. The second episode, Ring 'Dem Bells, is definitely the funniest on this video, when the platoon take part in a Home Guard training film, as Nazis, when someone sees them the humour just keeps coming (A MUST SEE!) The third and final episode shows how Private Pike gets called up into the R.A.F. Although this isn't the best program on this video, it is still one of the best I've seen. All in all, this is one of the best video I've seen. This video has both high points, like when the Hodges, The Vicar and the Verger climb the bell ropes to escape from 'Germans', actually it was Mainwering and his plattoon. Then there are low points, like when Pike's farewell Fish and Chip supper is organised. Really the only way to tell you about this video is of you buy it, if you are a Dad's Army fan it should be the next video in your collection.

This video contains three all time classic stories from the 1975 BBC season of Dad's Army.
ep 1. Is There Honey Still For Tea? Captain Mainwaring learns that Godfrey's cottage is to be knocked down to build a RAF air strip. Hijinks ensue when Mainwaring can't bring himself to tell Godfrey the news while Pike and Jones keep dropping heavy hints to Godfrey.
2. Come In Your Time Is Up A German platoon bale out of a bomber and land in the middle of a lake in a dingy. The Home Guard get into all sorts of difficulities as they try to capture the airman. Hodges the Air Raid Warden really suffers when he is taken hostage and only Pike can save the day!
3. High Finance Jone's bank account is deeply in the red so Mainwaring comes to the aid. However Mainwaring's hat metaphor nearly gives old Jonesy a seizure and a complex web of debt unfolds...
All in all any one of these episodes would be the highlight of a video tape but all together they make this tape the best on the market.
