Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Anamorphic Widescreen, Box Set, Interactive Menu, Multi-DVD Set, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: British comedy series about the Harper family. Father Ben is a dentist who'd like to see his children move out of the house as soon as possible because all he wants is peace and quiet. His eldest son Nick - who later on in the series does move out - is a complete idiot and a no-good who can't hold on to any of the various jobs he has. Daughter Janey is very shallow and not very picky when it comes to boys while son Michael is way too smart for Ben and doesn't feel the need to communicate much with his father. His curious wife Susan clearly makes all the decisions in the household. Later on in the series Ben gets an assistant at work, goofy and naive Roger, and when Janey finally moves out, no-brainer Abby moves in, while Janey keeps visiting, sometimes bringing along her little son, Kenzo. So much for Ben's peace and quiet. The complete boxed set of the BBC 1 comedy series My Family where put-upon dentist Ben Harper (Robert Lindsay) is long suffering husband to Susan (Zoe Wannamaker) and father to three very different and often difficult children - nice but dim Nick (Kris Marshall), shopaholic student Janey (Daniela Denby-Ashe) and prodigy Michael (Gabriel Thomson). SCREENED/AWARDED AT: BAFTA Awards, ...My Family - Complete Series - 22-DVD Box Set

4.0 out of 5 stars My Family - The "ONCE" perfect comedy. 24 Nov 2011
By Miley
Format:DVD
MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS.

This fantastic comedy centres around a dysfunctional family from Chiswick. Ben is a moody dentist who "pretends" that he has know interest in the upbringing of he's children which creates many laughs. Susan is a middle aged (although she doesn't like to admit it)tour guide who wears the trousers in the family and makes dinner "unbearable" with her terrible cooking. Nick is easily described as an idiot, he leaps from job to job with no actual intention of leaving home which causes several conflicts between himself and Ben. Janey is the middle child who later drops out of university after she has a baby. She is fashion obsessed and at times moans that she is the poor relation in the family. Finally their is Michael who is the "geek" of the family, he soon becomes sex obsessed and eventually comes out as gay. Later characters include Abi, a dim witted relative of Ben. Roger, an annoying dentist who works with Ben. Alfie, a strange Welsh musician and Kenzo, the son of Janey.

Series 1 - A great start to the series, the comedy is more "old school" and Ben and Susan look somewhat young. "Farewell to Alarms" is by far the best episode but there are many to enjoy. 9.5/10

Series 2 - Successfully continues on from Series 1, all the characters are developed, Susan's cooking becomes even worse than it already has and Nick's list of endless jobs supplies us with many laughs. "Parisian Beauty" is the best episode of the series. 9/10

Series 3 - The series just gets better and better, Janey leaves for university and Abi moves into the Harper household. "Shrink Rap" is the best episode of this series. 9/10

Series 4 - Probably my favourite of the 11 series's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 29 Sep 2012
By Zii
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Except for the last season, this series deserves a lot of praise. Of course if it wasn't for the fantastic match up of Zoe and Robert this series would have gotten nowhere. Zoe is really the soul of it. Script was more than decent for the most part (except for the last season or two). I have been watching it for the past ten years. Over and over... it's really well done. Clear 5 out of 5.

As for the dvd set itself, it's adequate I guess. Menus are basic and nice, not sure half hour episodes needed a chapter links sub-menu but it's an interesting idea. Menus don't have music, weird... maybe it's just my setup and this recording being PAL? No real extras is also what makes the set adequate only.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best comedies of all time 5 Dec 2011
By B. Russell TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can tell you for sure that this was one of the most amazing comedies that has ever been made, and I¡m sure ever will be made. The pure mix of hilarious jokes, brilliant acting and some amazing script work make this a gem you can enjoy again and again.

The family that no one would ever imagine bringing so may jokes just delivers and delivers and their pure magicy is just showcased in this bueatifully designed boxset. Ben (Robert Lindsay) and Susan (Zoe Wannamaker) are a true comedy pairing, and this miscap family are a true delight.

However I must say that the original episodes (Series 1 ¡V 5) were funnier than the later series you wont be disappointed by a single episode. The Christmas specials are a real triumph with everyone providing a laugh a minute; especially the 2008 special were Ben and Susan get locked in a department store on Christmas Eve! Pure magic!

This is one of the box sets that you just have to have, and anyone that watches it will understand why. Once you have bought it you will never regret it when you rolling around in laughter. I would say why wait? ¡V Buy Now

In my honest opinion, as I started watching the first series when I was about 9-10 years old. As Only Fools and Horses was the best sitcom ever made by the BBC since 1981-2003. Read more
