Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is the fourth set of Lovejoy episodes. They had moved away from the grainy film and into the "warm" polished quality, which served to set the higher tone for Lovejoy. The episodes were deftly written, sharply directed and brilliantly brought to life by the cast. McShane is at his most loveable rogue in the best episodes of the Series!!
The Prague Sun (a movie length 2-part Christmas Episode has Lovejoy doing a St. Nic appearance!)
The Napoleonic Commode - Jane and Lovejoy find a Napoleonic commode, minus the bowl - if they can just "fix" that a bit they will score big
The Ring - Lovejoy needs money to float his new effort. He hits upon buying a series of painting and if he can sell one for a high price then he can sell them all. He calls upon old shady pals to see the price goes up, but it backfires when he pulls Lady Jane into the scam
Second Fiddle - has Tinker, Eric and Lovejoy in period costume (must admit while Tinker and Eric don't fare too well, McShane looks as if he was born for the period!) The episode has Lovejoy playing musical chairs with fiddles - the rare kind!
The Colour of Mary - Lady Jane shines in the episode when she gives her speech of how Mary Queen of Scots was executed. Lovejoy needs to find Mary's old pool table
The Judgement of Solomon - has a shifty major trying to shift stole items from the Jews during WWII, but our rogue is there to save the day for everyone
The Galloping Major - in a series of events, Lovejoy find an ancient cannon, which soon has everyone going around and around to prove it's a rare Cromwellian cannon
God Helps Those - Jane tricks Lovejoy into decorating a pub for a friend, also a friend of Tinkers.

I won't go over the episodes contained herein as the previous reviewers have already both done that. Suffice to say that this is probably the best series of Lovejoy; the film quality and performances are both superb, the knockabout humour and mock-seriousness of the lead character are spot on, and there is not a single dud episode.
Aided by drunken sot 'Tinker Dill', naive antiques dealer wanabe 'Eric Catchpole', and aristocrat 'Lady Jane Felsham', Lovejoy ("No Mr, just Lovejoy") exposes scams, dodges the police and his creditors, and makes a bit of cash along the way. Ian McShane is perfectly cast in the title role, and the fourth series is just as entertaining in its gentle British fashion, as the three that came before it.

LOVEJOY, Series 4. That handsome rogue, Golden Globe® winner Ian McShane (so winning in DEADWOOD) is an antiques dealer and part-time detective, described by the Washington Post as “one of television’s most charming and appealing characters,” in this cult favorite British comedy/crime drama. The hit television series, loosely based on the fast-paced British mystery novels by Jonathan Gash, was made in the 1980s and ‘90s, seen on the BBC for six series, (1986, 1991-1994), and, in the United States, on A & E. Lovejoy (we never learn his first name) has an eye for a find, a forgery, the ladies, and a good sob story. With a young Phyllis Logan, (DOWNTON ABBEY’S Mrs. Hughes), as Lady Jane Felsham, married well-heeled decorator, partner to Lovejoy; Dudley Sutton, (THE BEIDERBECK CONNECTION), as Tinker and Chris Jury, (THE BIG GAME), as Eric Catchpole. The box series consists of 13 episodes on 4DVDs, runs approximately 693 minutes—over 13 hours. The series contains brief coarse language and nudity.

Lovejoy, called a “divvy” by his colleagues, apparently a person who can just smell a great antique, was called “the James Bond of antiques dealers” by the New York Times. Guest stars in Series 4 include Martin Clunes (DOC MARTIN); Ronald Pickup (THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL); Leslie Phillips (VENUS) and Richard Griffiths (HARRY POTTER, THE HISTORY BOYS). Also, Michael Horden (SCROOGE, 1977); Ronald Pickup(THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL);Liz Smith (LARK RISE TO CANDLEFORD)and Henry Goodman, (NOTTING HILL). And TP McKenna (BLEAK HOUSE); John Kavanagh (TUDORS, BRAVEHEART); Andrew Connolly (BRAMWELL); Dinah Sheridan, Peter Vaughan and the always threatening Donald Pleasence,(YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE).

Classic TV series that is light and friendly and not too dark or menancing.

Think nostalgic sunny Sunday tea time telly and you have Lovejoy.

Mostly very good with a just a couple of below par episodes.

Great nostalgic fun. They definately dont make them like this anymore.

I have been hoping that the "Prague Sun" Special would make it on to DVD and we are blessed with this offering which was the 1992 Christmas Special broadcast on 26 Dec 92.
In addition to this the episodes are:
The Napoleonic Commode
The Ring
Second Fiddle
The Colour of Money
Fly the Flag
Judgment of Solomon
The Galloping Major
God Helps Those
They Call Me Midas
Irish Stew
Dainty Dish
Taking the Pledge
Lovejoy Loses It
While this offering is a Region 0 (as are the other seasons in this series). I would strongly suggest North American viewers buying a DVD player that can convert PAL to NTSC. Amazon.com also has listings for Region Free DVD players.
