From Amazon.co.uk

"It's destiny, fate that brings us together. Redundancy. They just don't care that your mother used to eat insurance men and that yours was struggling to bring you up nicely as a little poof." So says Clegg (Peter Sallis) to his companions, Compo (Bill Owen) and Blamire (Michael Bates), three fellows getting on in years reunited by unemployment after knowing each other all their lives in a small Yorkshire town. There's no real story to Last of the Summer Wine, simply the well-observed banter of the central trio and a gallery of eccentric supporting characters. Compo, the irreverent and scruffy "village idiot" and Clegg, the amiable working man are well-loved figures, complemented by the middle-class Conservative Blamire (a nicely rounded portrayal by Bates) and Foggy (Brian Wilde), who joined the series in 1976. This set is a reminder of how good the longest-running comedy in British television history once was, when it was new, fresh, and laugh-out-loud funny. --Gary S. Dalkin

This is classic stuff worth getting alone for the 'Getting Sam Home' feature length film from Xmas 1983. This was the first feature length film of a sitcom to be made for TV. Shows such as Only Fools and Horses later followed this trend with their own Xmas feature length specials.
If you like classic BBC comedy like Steptoe and Son, Dad's Army etc then this is a must buy ...

I love this show and the way it makes me feel . The DVD is well produced and as usual the actors and the writing are the best . The characters always remain true to their 'character', to use a word again . This comes from the same writer, Roy Clarke, being the only writer since 1973 to ever write any of the shows . This is not the case when several writers are involved with a show over a period of time . You may get used to the way a character is and what to expect from them when another writer changes the character so much that you hardly recognize them as you had gotten use to . Form 1973 until the present this longest running comedy on British TV has remained true to form and I pray it will go on for many more years and that we will be able to purchase all the episodes ever made . One sad note, from a reviewer on Series 9-10 which is due out in May of 2008; he says that he has found evidence that there will actually be no episodes from series 10 on this set called Series 9-10 . It does seem as if he will be right if the running time of 440 minutes listed is correct . There were 12 episodes in series 9 and there is supposed to be 3 Christmas/New years Specials on the set also . There is no way that any more episodes could be on the set with only 440 minutes of running time . When you divide 440 by aproximately 30 minutes you see that this will come to about 15 episodes and there will be no way for the 6 or 7 epidodes from series 10 to be included . I only wonder what the next set will be called and how Universal Playback UK will explain this to we buyers . In any case, I want all of the episodes and hope we will have them available , in some form or the other . Some of the previous sets like 1-2 and 5-6 are hard to find and some say they may never be released again . Why, with a pouplar and wonderful show like this is it so hard to purchase them as we all want ? Will we be forced to buy counterfeits sold on sites like Ebay in order to complete our collections ?

For me, there's no doubt that Brian Wilde was the star of LOSW.
Whilst, at times, the compo character could be somewhat limited, Wilde was consistently funny, even in the [inevitable] weaker episodes....and Sallis always had the glib remark.
Brian brought in a suggestion of that voice quivering, from his 'Porridge' character - together with the condescention and 'superiority', that only a corporal sign-writer can apply...
Along with the later development of the ongoing Howard/Miranda 'debacle', it's Foggy, that possibly kept viewers watching and helped give the series it's deserved longevity....
RIP, Brian....you were just wonderful!
And thanks for another superb collection.....

Just a warning, there is a couple of scenes edited out of 'The Loxley Lozenge', about a minute around the 6:17 mark is missing, along with an 8-second edit around the 7:50 mark. Both scenes edited out are of the actor Jonathan Lindsley who according to some sources were edited out due to unexplained reasons. Jonathan played 'Milburn' around this time. The dead giveaway is that his name appears on the end credits. To see it unedited, go onto Youtube and watch 'The Loxley Lozenge Part 1'.

We recently purchased a Region Free DVD player so we could see these wonderful shows, and it was so worth it. The best part is having the subtitles. My husband is hearing impaired and he just can't follow the Yorkshire accent very well. I love the way Playback puts the names of each episode on the box, too.
Even with the exchange rate, these DVD sets are cheaper than the ones we have that have been released in America. We are very happy with our purchase.

As always, it's a pleasure to watch these two series of Last of the Summer Wine.

Never disappointing in its humour the lofty (in more ways than one) Foggy, the woman fearing Clegg and the irrepressible Compo rule supreme. Gentle smiles and loud laughter accompany any viewing of this wonderful programme, no matter which episode/series you are watching.

I cannot envisage anyone being disappointed by any of the episodes.

Yet another wacky round of adventures for the three eternal school boys. I thoroughly enjoyed this box set as I have with the others. Compo's tempestuous relationship with the feisty Nora Batty is a sight to behold. I look forward to continuing my viewing with the crazy trio.
