Mr Bean is very funny, his facial expressions and actions can make you laugh time and time again; but the thing that's not funny is ripping off die hard fans. Let me explain: from 2002-2007 they released 5 volumes of Mr Bean - and they cost me around £12 a unit, fair enough, but then a year after they release them as a 3 volume set for £7 each! Now you can see why I'm annoyed!
Anyway here you get the first 5 episodes - where Mr Bean tries to do an exam, with hilarious consequences, goes to the swimming pool and realises he hates heights, he makes a sandwich in the park and does his own dentistry work. All 5 episodes are howlers that's for sure, and are suitable for any age, as it's rated U - it really has appeal across all age groups.
There are no extras on this, you just get the 5 episodes as they were broadcast - 4:3, Dolby 2.0 stereo mix and that's it. There is no subtitles or audio description, which is a pity as it would have opened the programme to a new audience.
This is good for people who like Bean but don't have the box set or the 1-5 DVDs, but as a die hard fan, I feel I have been let down quite badly by Universal, as I would have saved a packet on just buying these 3 volumes they have issued.
Avoid if you're a big fan, otherwise this is a good buy for people who want Bean in a convenient package.
