Long overdue re-release of the hilarious 70's comedy. Deemed offensive but insults are traded equally and Eddie always ends up being made a total fool of. Rudolph Walker is great here as he is in the Thin Blue Line and Eastenders.
Also includes the unseen pilot episode with a different actress playing Eddie's wife Joan. Let's hope all the other series are reissued too.
If you find this sort of comedy offensive then stick with that Jasper Carrott sitcom on BBC1. It is a very 70's comedy (from the sets to the references) and very un-PC, but if you can live with thay you are guarranteed a laugh from one of the UK's most watched comedies of it's day.

In this world gone mad, where a blackboard is now a chalkboard and a whiteboard is a dryboard, we are slowly becoming a country that has lost the ability to laugh at itself.
In a multi-cultural society, the one thing that should bring us all together is the ability to be able to laugh about ourselves and eachother
The politically correct brigade amongst us are bound to say that this programme is nothing more than racist claptrap, but the fact is that both lead characters give as much as they get.
This is no more than un-pc and racist than 'Till Death do us part, where Warren Mitchell dispells Tony Booth for being a scouser.
The main point about the whole series is that it is funny. Eddie Booth (Jack Smethurst) inveitably comes off worst and it is funny to see his bigoted views become his downfall.
With classic one liners this situation comedy delivers on all levels, so whack it in the DVD player and give it a whirl

This show was a classic first time around and its about time it was released on DVD.
Fantastic one liners and don't forget the actors in the show are black and white !!
You must watch this show with an open frame of mind , grab a few beers , invite the neighbours in and prepare for comedy,
Fantastic !!

There are currently 3 boxsets of LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR seasons 1...3 released by Pegasus but they have mucked up the amount of episodes on the second and third one to the buyers advantage. Heres the details

SEASON 1 set - All 7 episodes plus bonus unbroadcast pilot episode

SEASON 2 set - All 6 episodes plus first 4 episodes from SEASON 3

SEASON 3 set - LAST 2 episodes from SEASON 3 plus all 8 episodes SEASON 4 (Season 4 had 8 episodes, 7 normal length and one extended...all included here).

So as you can see, if you buy these 3 season sets you are also getting season 4, crazy the way Pegasus has named the sets but I think its because they initially released the first 2 sets and didnt intend a third so bunged some season 3 episodes on the third one. When they realised they were selling well and should do a third set, they called it SEASON 3 but since most of those episodes were put on series 2 as bonus they put all of season 4 on as well.

It NOW makes sense that we are going to get (from a different company I believe) seasons 5 onwards released on dvd....so dont go BUT WHERES SEASON 4 when you look through the amazon listings, its on the season 3 set! hope this info proves useful, it all confused me until I got my facts straight using a comedy reference book.

Format: DVD
Love Thy Neighbour certainly lacks the sophistication associated with many of the comedies that are typically regarded as classics - and especially those also from the seventies which are associated with the BBC, yet despite the series appearing stereotypical in so many ways, and not least where racial discrimination is concerned, there is an awful lot here to enjoy.

Pretty much all the episodes in series one are very well written where often the racial taunts are very much evenly split between Eddie (the white neighbour) and Bill (the black neighbour) meaning that Bill very much gives as good as he got. Yet beneath it all there was always an underlying feeling that those two were really the best of friends whatever the implications of their disagreements may have been (and it wasn't always just about race) and it's this sort of unusual comradeship which adds no end to the charm of the series in a way that more recent (and often more abrasive) comedies never quite manage to find, however politically correct they strive to be. The show consequently has an endearing charm.

I'm from the generation who viewed this series first time round and it didn't really cross my mind that it could ever be deemed seriously offensive back then, despite some pretty strong racist overtones, although rewatching these episodes many years later can at times seem a little shocking because many of the racist themes would never seem fit to be allowed on tv these days. However, i still find the show exceedingly funny in pretty much every respect, although i won't deny members of racial minority groups may see things a little differently, especially if overexposure to the show should influence some impressionable (young) minds.

Bigoted white socialist gets black next door neighbours in the most un-pc sit-com ever aired on British television.

Still controversial today, 'Love Thy Neighbour' would be indefensible if it wasn't so funny. The writers go to great pains to make sure that the black guy usually gets the upper hand in the juvenile pranks and schemes that 'snowflake' thinks up, but there is an invective incongeniality to some of the confrontations.

Whether you'll be offended by this depends on whether you think childish phrases like 'nig-nog' and 'white honky' are acceptable in a 'comedy' context.

What's really interesting is; the two protagonists are at each others throats virtually the whole time - except when they're trying to put one over on their wives. If there's a darts competition, a booze-up or a football match on the horizon and their wives are trying to put the mockers on it, they're suddenly the best of friends. This cynically suggests that the writers are of the depressing (but probably true) opinion that the gap between the races is nowhere near the chasm that exists between the sexes. But that's another series.

In short, 'Love Thy Neighbour' is naïve, archaic, sexist, horrendously stereotypical and rude. It's of it's time (1972 -1976) and rightly or wrongly commanded huge audiences when it was first broadcast. We used to sit down as a family to watch it, it was all innocent and accepted. But times change and it was left out in the cold, castigated and reviled as the champion bete noir of the 80's PC brigade.
Now it's 'retro'. We've come full circle, it sneaks out on dvd, rising from the grave like a vampire. (a useful analogy seeing as the movie version was produced by Hammer Films!) We can laugh now, but in an ironic, post-modern sense.
