Product Description

Created and written by Sid Green (Morecambe and Wise: Two of a Kind, The Strange World of Gurney Slade), Mixed Blessings stars Christopher Blake (That's My Boy) and Muriel Odunton as a mixed-race couple struggling to placate their disapproving and constantly bickering families. This popular and for its time provocative series also stars much-loved sitcom stalwarts Carmen Munro (The Fosters), and Joan Sanderson (Please Sir!).

Graduates Thomas Simpson and Susan Lambert are young lovers who are about to embark on married life. But their happiness is tempered by a deep trepidation. Social worker Susan is black, and out-of-work engineer Christopher is white... and breaking the news of the marriage to their respective families is only the beginning of their problems!

Exasperated by the anxieties of both sets of in-laws, the newlyweds decide to take up an offer of accommodation from Christopher's sympathetic Aunt Dorothy the only relative who believes the marriage will actually work...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun!! 12 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series might prove controversial to some but if one has an open mind its plain to see that this series was completely hilarious!

I doubt if any production crews would get away with producing something like this today. They probably won't get away with producing "Desmonds" today.

I watched a few episodes as a kid back in the day and recently I remebered how funny it was and decided to carry out a search for this series. I only intended watching the first two episodes with family but we ended up watching the first two series.

I think it was brilliant. Forget the 80's strife.

These were funny when I watched them 20yrs ago and they are still funny today. My kids love the interactions and wonder at how societal norms have changed since then.

5.0 out of 5 stars great comedy 7 Jun 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had forgot all about this comedy but when I watched it , it all came back to me, I was only a young lad when this came out, its good hearted comedy at its best about two people, one white man and one coloured lady, they meet and fall in love and marry, then you see how the two familys react , its in the same family as Love Thy Neighbour, but all good fun, it how you take it, we're come along way since this was filmed. a must for all comedt fans.
