Product Description

The Green Wing Complete Collection DVD is an 8-disc box set containing the "Green Wing Series 1" and "Green Wing Series 2" DVDs, the "Green Wing Special" DVD, plus the previously unseen "Green Wing – The Phenomenon Documentary". In addition to this extra features include deleted scenes, audio commentary with the cast and crew, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and biographies. Produced by the team who brought you "Smack the Pony", Green Wing is more concerned with the antics of its dysfunctional characters than with actual medical issues. It combines the cream of British comedy actors, inventive use of editing--in which sequences are often sped up and slowed down--and an offbeat sense of humour, to create an unusual and imaginative comedy.

Synopsis

Proving that there is more to hospitals than just disinfectant and dysentery, Green Wing takes an altogether unconventional view of the health service. "Green Wing - Series 1" follows the exploits of Dr. Caroline Todd (Tamsin Greig) and her hilarious encounters with a number of eccentric co-workers. The assortment of bizarre characters she meets includes: Guy Secretan (Stephen Mangan), the smooth talking part-Swiss anaesthetist and all-round misogynist; Dr. Alan Statham (Mark Heap), possibly one of the kinkiest doctors on the ward and a man whose affliction is to think out loud (something that the cheeky intern Boyce likes to exploit quite frequently); the dashing but aloof Dr. 'Mac' Macartney (Julian Rhind-Tutt), whom Caroline may or may not have a crush on; Joanna Clore (Pippa Heywood), the moody, age-obsessed HR Director; Sue White (Michelle Gomez), the sociopathic staff relations counsellor; the hapless junior doctor Martin Dear (Karl Theobold); and the irritatingly perfect Dr. Angela Hunter (Sarah Alexander). In Series 2, Dr. Todd and her crew of quirky co-workers return to face the unenviable task of clearing up the mess they left behind at the end of series one.

For any fan of Green wing having every episode is obviously a must and this Box set does give you this, but if you are thinking of buying this collector's edition the 8th bonus disc is a bit of a let down.
It does contain unseen material namely extra deleted scenes and a so called documentary which although entertaining, only lasts 15mins and I feel it could and should have been longer to give a true fan what they deserve!
If you can get this 8 disc collectors edition for about the same price as the other separate series 1 & 2 plus special together, then it is worth buying but don't spend too much extra as the 8th bonus disc isn't worth it.

Over the last 10 years if I got onto the subject of best comedys on tv. All I hear about is the office, and as good as this is it is left far behind in the wake of Green Wing. As comedys go this is up there with the best IE Fawlty Towers, Father Ted, Black Adder and The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin. So if anybody out there who were unlucky enough to of missed this when it was on and you like a good laugh and have a weekend veiwing spare then order this DVD.

ITS ONE OF THE BEST

5.0 out of 5 stars A bargain for Green Wing fans 20 May 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you love Green WIng, then this DVD box set is a bargain. Hours and hours of laughs.

If you haven't seen Green Wing, then it's worth taking the plunge and buying the box set anyway if you like comedy with a modern edge, an element of slapstick, surrealism and everyday situations made funny in a novel way then this should be just up your street. If you loved Spaced or Black Books you'll probably love this. Hope that helps!

5.0 out of 5 stars Statham's Revenge 14 Jan 2010
Format:DVD
Green Wing is without doubt one of the best TV comedy series ever written
This BAFTA Award winning sureal comedy shot in Basingstoke and Southampton Hospitals is a must have.

I first came across this channel hopping one evening whilst I was looking after my girlfriend who had co-incidently just come out of major surgey at Guys hospital - this was the perfect antedote and we laughed so much that she had to stop watching as her industrial size metal stitches were in danger of exploding.

Green Wing will take you through all the gamets of human emotion it is superbly written. it will always have you smiling and sometimes even crying with laughter.

The natural chemistry and razor sharp banter between arrogant but insecure public school Swiss born, anaesthetist Guy Secretan (Steve Mangan) and Julian Rhind Tutt(crazy name crazy guy) as the unconventional, popular and high flying surgeon Dr "Mac" MacCartney must rate among the funniest spontaneous double acts of all time. With the tall, quirky, honey toned Tamsin Greig (Debbie from "the Archers")as new Dr Caroline Todd - the eventual centre of their affections.

The other star of this series has got to be the up tight, dark and twisted (but not unsymapethic) stammering Radiologist Dr Alan Statham brilliantly played by Mark Heap
(Lark Rise to Candleford) who's is unable to reconcile himself to modern society. His school master authority always undermined by people who dont fit into his old fashioned view of Britain, in particular by his extremely tall and street-wise bullying bysexual pupil Mr Boyce.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy - Contains a rootkit 5 May 2008
Format:DVD
I'm a very big fan of the show and that's why I bought the collectors' edition.

However, when I inserted the dvd in my computer and looked at the contents of the dvd I noticed that it tries to automatically install a rootkit without any user intervention. This kind of behavior is not even legal.
We as customers are getting punished for buying it while pirates provide it for free without malware.
I won't buy dvd's anymore from Channel4 in the future.

The technical stuff:
The DVD's contain Macrovision ActiveReach RipGuard technology. There are 3 hidden files (autorun.inf, 70Z58O4I.exe, RGASDEV.SYS) that, when installed, stop people from creating a legal backup copy for personal use.
There is no way to uninstall this program therefore it gets labeled as a rootkit:

This inspired comedy in so many ways zany and off the wall, ploughed a new furrow in TV comedy so far as I'm concerned and all credit to Channel4 for commissioning it. Great fun. Read more
