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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Comedy 28 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three of the best 6 July 2004
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The usual 2 Jan 2002
Format:VHS Tape
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.

Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dad's Army review 14 Oct 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I absolutely love Dad's Army and I am a big fan so naturally I would rate this video very highly. No Spring for Fraser can be a little tiresome at times but there are some very funny scenes where we see the Dad's Army cast performing some slapstick which I consider to be very funny. Absent Friends is an episode I love particularly with a misunderstanding between Captain Mainwaring and Corporal Jones. and A. Wilson: Manager? is very funny as Captain Mainwaring feels betrayed by Wilson and takes action by promoting Corporal Jones. At the end of the episode you'll feel very sorry for Wilson but I won't tell you why because otherwise it would ruin the episode for you. The video in all is brilliant and Dad's Army is a credit to British Classic Sitcoms. So go out and buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Triumph of light-hearted humour 23 Jun 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This video contains three all time classic episodes from the famous British TV sit-com series Dad's Army. Episodes include 'The Big Parade', 'Gorilla Warfare' and 'The Godiva Affair'
Episode:
1. The Big Parade
The first episode on this video that shows Captain Mainwaring and his platoon taking part in a procession in which Mainwaring wants a mascot to lead them. Unfortunately he discovers that trusting Private Walker to supply one was a very bad mistake. An episode which of the three is my least favorite which doesn't necessarily mean that anyone else will find it so, so don't be put off by this.
2. Gorilla Warfare
A well produced episode and in my opinion, the funniest of the lot which during a training exercise, shows Mainwaring placing himself as a highly important secret agent which the regular army have to capture before he can complete his mission. But what's this, a Gorilla is on the loose. Walmington on seas home guard have certainly got their work cut out for them. An episode of pure light hearted humour and a chance to see Walmington on sea's home guard at their best.
3. The Godiva Affair
A splendid episode which sees Captain Mainwaring and his platoon acting out a Morris dance in aid to help raise money for a spitfire. But all does not go down well when Mainwaring finds out what Hodges has in store for his contribution, While corporal Jones is going through a crisis of his own for the attention of Mrs. fox. In my opinion this is a tape containing some of the most comical episodes of Dads Army which never cease to make me laugh. A must have for all Dad's Army fans to place beside their most treasured Dad's Army collections and even for those who aren't fans, it will most certainly warm your heart with it's light humour.
