I watched this series when it first appeared on tv, many years ago. It hasn't lost any of the humour since then. Centred in a small northern town's working mens club, Selwyn is the member from Hell. Always volunteering to help out and then wrecking everything. An expert at digging holes for the council, he's a one man disaster area for anything else. The phrase "easily led " also springs to mind. Gentle humour of the kind lost long ago. Buy this dvd, sit down on saturday afternoon with a beer, and enjoy... You won't be disappointed.

Made in the mid 70s and at the time just one of the many sitcoms you could enjoy every night, nostalgia makes this show all the better. If only we could have shows of this quality on all the time, television would be worth watching again.

Selwyn is a well-meaning, always over-cheerful buffoon who's first in line to volunteer to help out with any task even though he's utterly hopeless, clueless and disaster prone. As you'd expect, events spiral into chaos very quickly. The humour is obvious and flagged up a mile off, and it's all the better for it. I actually prefer Selwyn to the alternate version of Frank Spencer, who for me was just too weird and unsettling to be funny. Selwyn, for all the slapstick silliness, has a note of truth to him as we've all met someone like him. I enjoyed season 2 as much as season 1, although my memory tells me the series went downhill after this.

So this is worth trying as it's one of the better 70s sitcoms and certainly one of ITV's better old offerings. It's not long before the catchphrases are working their way back into your mind and provided you're in the right frame of mind for a simple, honest comedy you should find this to be as good as you remembered it.

Quaint comedy from the 1970's. Not fashionable or so funny today in general terms, but brings back memories. The series is about an affable oaf. I like it because it is old-fashioned, and can enjoy it in its context. Sadly, it portrays a better world than today.

This is classic 1970's comedy at its best. Selwyn is as funny now as when first screened. Don't expect the modern quality sets with vivid colour and noise, as this series shows the seventies as I remember them. Limited interest perhaps for a younger audience, as the sets are few in number and it's a smoky Northern village setting, but I enjoy it all the more for that. Selwyn, with our Morris and our Mum, is quick, simple and funny. Something along the lines of 'The Gaffer' and 'Open All Hours', but also stands alone as a quality comedy in its own right. This is only my view, but I like it.

It's great to see this series on DVD at last, full marks to Network for consistently releasing forgotten gems such as this.
I would say the second series really got into it's stride and is funnier and more tightly scripted than the first.

Great performances from the cast, most of all Bill Maynard as the lovable buffoon Selwyn.
