5.0 out of 5 stars THIS REALLY IS ADDICTIVE VIEWING !! 14 Nov 2007
What can be said about minder?
Well simply put its just compulsive viewing! Im not joking this really is a top programme made by euston films in conjuction with thames.
Minder hit tv screens back in 1979 with the opening episode "gunfight at the o.k laundrette".An episode that will pave the way for the coming series showing terry as hardnut with a heart,and arthur as real optimist in making any situation into a nice little earner. Can't fault the casting either with waterman being really convincing as a london boy trying to earn a crust by the way he know's best-Hitting people!!
Arthur making sure as always that terry does all the graft while he counts all the dole from whatever latest scheme he's dreamed up.
A programme that can run for so long with such endearing affection is staggering but once watched you can see why so many millions can't be wrong. Just top stuff!!
Some episodes really stand out such as "all mod cons" where arthur has rented terry's flat to an old pal for a good amount of cash and terry is still living there-excellent!! Also one of the specials "an officer and a car salesaman"is one of the funniest minders made as arthur just can't resist selling dodgey gear to an old soldier who has some funny ideas.
All excellent with the slight exception of the series starring gary webster as ray daley,arthurs nephew and apparently new minder that i feel were made for a newer audience,this set does include all series made and all the specials aswell,can't be bad for a ton and a half??
The dvd picture quality is pretty good but i have to agree with the last reviewer and say that clearvision were lazy in bringing us a decent quality in sound and vision,plus there's not that much content by the way of extras.A shame as such a popular entertaining show did deserve better.
A great bit of tele history that everyone should watch atleast once.
But be warned this show will hook you!!

There have been some great series over the years, but none is greater than Minder. It's hard to imagine that my two favourite comedy-drama series of recent years (Life on Mars and Shameless) could have existed had it not been for Minder: it effectively invented the comedy-drama genre. Fans of my age are now incapable of seeing Only Fools and Horses (which played up the comedy) as anything but a sentimental imitatation, 'Minder-lite'.

Owning every episode may be a mixed blessing. It took a little while for the series to find its feet...but what feet. Arthur Daley is one of the finest fictional characters ever created, right up there with Sherlock Holmes, Harry Potter and Miss Piggy - he's practically an archytype, as Jung would say. Is there any salesman in existence who doesn't have a little of him in them? I read in the eighties that every Londoner wanted to look like James Dean and talk like Arthur Daley. Replace James Dean with 50 Cent/Eminem and that's still true!

As for Terry, well, although the series was written for him, he could never really compete with Arthur's charisma. Even when he left to be replaced by Arthur's nephew Ray, we barely noticed. Ray's first episode ('The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Entrepreneur' - the episode titles were all great!), with its wonderful opening, parodying The Godfather, is actually one of the very best. That said, Terry led to every compromised but essentially honest and decent hero ever since, including Sam Tyler and Lip Gallagher.

We mustn't forget the minor characters, too - including Dave, mine host at The Winchester Club...too integral to really be a 'minor' character but Arthur's oldest friend and therefore longest-suffering victim (the never-seen 'er indoors excepted, perhaps).

My favourite episode?
