Product Description

All eight episodes from the first series of the madcap sitcom. In 'Moving Out' Lee (Lee Evans) manages to destroy two flats and an estate agent's office. 'Sofa So Good' has Lee search for a missing ring. 'Swingers' sees our hero begin dating again. 'The House Guest' finds Stuart getting all inflated. 'Act of God' has Lee consider insurance. 'Fear of Flying' sees Lee try to come to terms with his flight problems. 'The Limo' finds the flexible one getting classy. And finally, in 'Parole', fears arise when Heather's dad gets out of the clinker.


After a string of successes on the big screen, So What Now marks the return of comedian Lee Evans to television and his first sitcom. Scripted by Evans himself, the show has an old-fashioned feel to it, recalling at times various comedy series of the 1970s. Evans' character, Lee, is a mere extension of his live performance persona--a rambling, accident-prone loser whose split from his wife forces him into a domestic situation with the slovenly Stuart (O'Donnell) and man-eating yuppie, Heather (Thomson). There is much of Michael Crawford's hapless Frank Spencer in Lee, especially in the visual set pieces that form the cornerstone of the show. Given his strong acting and writing pedigree, this has to be seen as a disappointment for Evans; the combination of weak script and less than inspiring performances mean that So What Now is only a sporadic success. --Phil Udell

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 3 Nov 2008
By Craig Taylor VINE VOICE
I remember watching this as a child, and I really enjoyed it then. Due to a lack of repeats on the BBC I'd almost forgot about it, until I found it in a bargain bucket.
This is one of the most underatted Sitcoms of all time! It is hillarious, and shows Lee Evans as always at his very best. There are 8 episodes, that follow Lee trying to pick his life up after been kicked out by his wife.
There is plenty of physical comedy as well as verbal comedy in this fantastic traditional style comedy.
It's a bargain well worth owning, plus there is plenty of extras too. I only wish they'd wrote more!

5.0 out of 5 stars From one of the finest commediennes ever 28 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Theirs no doubt that anyone can't say that Lee Evans is one of the funniest & finest commediennes ever & always has you laughing, this DVD has the complete series of "So What Now" which is a very entertatining show, the DVD has great value because not only do you get a bonus DVD that has absolutely LOADS of footage on it (including a fantastic Lee Evans documentry) but the actualy DVD is also a double sided disc aswell with the whole series on it (so it's like having 3 DVD's), Lee is definately by far best as stand up & i don't think this show is anything to compare to him as a stand up although the DVD is fantastic & very funny (Check out the hilarious "Swingers" episode), Lee's best stand up's are the "Live In Scotland" & "Wired & Wonderful" which DO truly show Lee at his best & i don't think their is anyone who can sit & watch it without laughing (so many things he says & does (action wise) are very true to life.. & you can really relate to them also.. very funny things) but this show has some great storys, great entertainment & the out-takes are also really cool.. a fantastic DVD & great value for money ! !

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Lee... 20 May 2009
By Mike
Lee Evans is by far the counrtys best and most versatile entertainer. but the 'So What Now' series will leave you slightly disappointed if you're used to his usual stand-up quality.

Yeah, its funny, especially the first episode involving the fish tank..but its not really the standard I have come to expect from Lee.

Buy it though, if you like Lee. It will look good in your collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Under-rated Comedy - I Like It ! 15 Oct 2012
Lee Evans fans - especially those who have seen his live shows or dvds of them - might be a little surprised or even disappointed in this comedy. It is not so loud and frenetic - or full of f-words - as his shows, in fact it is a traditional three-character sitcom.

Of course one of the characters is a hyper-ventilating thrown-out husband called Lee, at-times Frank-Spencerish, at times Norman-Wisdomish (these are both compliments), innocently causing trouble for his heavy-weight slob schoolfriend Stewart, and their new (desperate for a man - any man) landlady.

Sitcoms like this are prone to failures in jokes and scripts, this is no exception, but these are a very good trio, they do make some funny moments together, there are indeed many excellent moments in this series. There is also Lee Evans showing his many talents (not a euphemism), his frenetic vocalising, clowning, graceful athleticism and great comedy timing, not to mention the off-the-wall things only a great talent could come up with (opening the back-door to the house).

There are many moments of great hilarity in the eight episodes, some memorable sequences including the strip-club episode where Lee puts some money in the pole-dancers slip...!

The 8 episodes are housed on a double-sided dvd, whilst the other disc carries the extras, which include 30 minutes of hilarious out-takes from the series, and an excellent filmed biography and interviews of Mr Evans.

Personally, I don't like his stage shows for the language. There's no need for it, nor is it funny. But he has genuine great talent like some notable clowns and comedians of the past. This is a good series to show what he can do in other veins.
