Reviews

The first seven episodes from this popular British sitcom which went on to spawn two further sitcoms: 'Robin's Nest' and 'George and Mildred'. Robin Tripp (Richard O'Sullivan) moves into a flat with two girls Jo and Chrissie (Paula Wilcox and Sally Thomsett) and experiences the highs and lows of mixed flat-sharing. Meanwhile their landlords, George and Mildred Roper, not only keep an eye on the goings on but also have their own reasons for keeping tabs on their tenants. The episodes are: 'Three's a Crowd', 'And Mother Makes Four', 'Some Enchanted Evening', 'And Then There Were Two', 'It's Only Money', 'Match of the Day', and 'No Children, No Dogs'.

Format: DVD
this is the first series in its full glory all seven episodes, 162 minutes long, richard o sullivan spends the night after a party (in the bath) and thats where it all starts from.
moving in with two single girls what a lucky guy,,then he meets the landlords george and mildred not so lucky,thames made the series way back in 1973 thats right over 30 years ago..watching this today makes time just slide away as it carries well into the new century,when your bored of todays tv pop a episode of this in every now and then it fills up a great half hour inbetween programmes today we lack the brilliance of tv sitcoms now, which is why sitcom classics have been released onto dvd go on relive that comedy half hour again and again. great value great fun..

Not one sniff of an extra, but this disc has the classic 70's tv series in all it's entirety and is just as funny as I remember it.
Sitcoms like this are not amde anymore and it's still really funny.I just hope all the other series are eventually released.

Format: DVD
Made in the days when it was unusual for a man to live with 2 girls, unless they were sexually involved, and even that wasn't the norm it is today. Situations they find theirselves in as Robin Tripp lusts after his 2 female flatmates but gets nowhere plus the subplot of the relationship between their landlords George & Mildred Roper make this a must have dvd.

I REMEMBER VIVIDLY WATCHING THE PILOT EPISODE IN 1973 (AGED 13) AND FALLING IN LOVE WITH PAULA WILCOX AND SALLY THOMSETT FROM THE OPENING SEQUENCE AND I'VE NEVER REALLY RECOVERED!QUITE SIMPLY ONE OF THE FUNNIEST COMEDY SHOWS TO COME OUT OF BRITAIN AND ONE THAT THAT IS AS FUNNY TODAY AS IT WAS BACK THEN.GREAT LINES,SUPERBLY DELIVERED BY A QUALITY CAST THAT HAS NO WEAK LINKS.FASHION WISE THE MEN COME OFF WORST BUT THE GIRLS LOOK SURPRISINGLY CHIC AND MODERN (THOSE FASHIONS COMING ROUND AGAIN!).DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR AND BUY THE BOX SET,YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

I found this DVD when I was looking for something different to buy, and it brought back memories from my past when I watched it the first time round. It is still great to watch and it's fun to see the clothes they wore then, it's a great laugh, nice and gentle. I will probably have to get the rest of the series at some time, and I would recommend this DVD for a bit of light-hearted humour.

this takes you back to the days when tv was funny and simple. There was no need for offensive language or continuous sexual iinuendos. This was good at the time but now even better, as there is nothing that compares currently on TV.

This DVD is exactly as I remember from my younger days, and still as enjoyable during those long winter evenings
