Product Description

Complete fourth series of the popular British sitcom. 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. In this series, Robin is in danger of losing his driver's licence, Chrissy's mother pays an unwanted visit, and George enlists Robin's help getting a piano upstairs. Episodes are: 'Home and Away'; 'One For the Road'; 'All in the Game''; 'Never Give Your Real Name'; 'The Tender Trap'; and 'My Son, My Son'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beans, beans, chunky chicken...! 12 Oct 2006
By Bodie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After the slightly weaker efforts of series 3, Man about the House returns to top form in this excellent release.

As usual, Richard O'Sullivan is a happy & energetic lead; his bubbling enthusiasm lifts the mood of the show an extra notch. The sharp Chrissy (Paula Wilcox) and ditzy Jo (Sally Thomsett) also play their parts to perfection. In addition, less Larry and a little more of the George & Mildred characters help to balance out the stories without abandoning the initial premise.

Series 4 contains some classic 'MATH' episodes including the driving lesson (involving 'beans, beans, chunky chicken' and a wonderful court scene) and George's wig.

In these days of alternative, post-watershed, disfunctional family sitcoms, it's a real treat to sit down to something unashamedly simple and funny that the whole family can watch. Highly recommended to those who enjoy a good laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost absolutely perfect 30 May 2008
Apart from a joke about giving a urine sample at the police station, that's a rip-off of a gag which had previously been used in an episode of Porridge, this is a perfect comedy treat. The idea that a man flat-sharing with women is shocking/daring is dated now, of course, but the scripts and fine acting shine through. 4 series in, Man About The House was still fresh and filled with top one-liners/punchlines. Paula Wilcox looks even more naturally gorgeous than in Series 1. And the show has loads of warmth too. Buy it. Enjoy it.
