4.0 out of 5 stars Get Some In Series 5 13 Dec 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I liked this show quite a lot as it reminded me a lot of my time in the forces in the late fifties. I thought series 1 to 4 were very funny and enjoyable however I wasn't too impressed with series 5 which was the final series it was not as good as the previous episodes. Robert Lindsay was replaced by another actor which I found dissapointing and this final series seemed to be lacking something that previous episodes had but it was entertaining nevertheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars A VIEWING MUST FOR EX NATIONAL SERVICE BODS 27 Oct 2009
Format:DVD
If you, like me, was kidnapped by her Majesty for two years National Service during the 1950s the 'GET SOME IN' series on DVD is a must.

For the sake of comedy the characterisation is naturally a little over the top, but most ex squaddies and 'erks will remember similar characters from their own experiences:

So as far as this series of DVDs is concerned GET SOME IN is exactly the right message:

What a great series this was. If you are a nostalgia fan, like me, and enjoyed the series when it was first screened on TV. You must add this to your collection. Well worth getting!
