A pleasurable surprise 7 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have been a John Thaw fan from the Inspector Morse series for years and did not realize, until I decided to take a chance on this dvd, what a delight he would be in a comedy series. The dvd contains five episodes from this 1980s half hour comedy and is, therefore, a bit steeply priced in my opinion. But it is a genuinely funny sitcom and thoroughly enjoyable. Not only was Mr. Thaw surprisingly good, but everyone (especially Reece Dinsdale as Thaw's son) gives truly funny performances. If you are a John Thaw fan (and even if you're not) you will find this series a joy to watch. I hope they eventually release all episodes to dvd.

An Effort to Differentiate Aspects of Reviews 18 Aug. 2004
By Ted Strong - Published on
Format: DVD
This series/DVD got two and a half stars. This was based on only the two reviews there were. One review, pretty much reviewed the series, and gave it four stars out of five. The other review gave only one star -- but it was all based on complaints with Amazon's description vs. what they seem to have received in the mail: "The item shipped was not as shown. The description stated 14 1/2 hours on three DVDs. I was sent 2 DVDs with 172 minutes."

I think -- perhaps -- just something to think about -- there should be ways to separate comments. For instance, the actual film/TV series/whathaveyou; the production of it onto the DVD or whathaveyou; Amazon's description matching the received product; et al...

A Real Delight 10 Mar. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
This is a very funny, and quick-witted comedy....with some belly laughs thrown in too. For all John Thaw fans...John Thaw is as wonderful a comedian as he is a dramatic actor. The supporting cast is great too. Wish more sitcoms were as good as this one.
John Thaw also did comedy 7 Sept. 2012

He has such a believable and serious delivery of funny lines that you laugh out loud. A very missed actor. So glad he ventured into a sit-com to collect/re-watch alongside "Morse" and other dramatic roles.
Wonderful! 25 Dec. 2012

I first saw this when I was in England many years ago. It was funny, and in many episodes, the truth hit home. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see the whole series. Until now. Thank you!!
