Product Description

Product Description

Collection of all seven series of the successful 70's sitcom. On The Buses follows the fortunes of jack-the lad London bus drivers Jack Harper (Bob Grant) Stan Butler (Reg Varney) and their nemesis, Inspector 'Blakey' Blake (Stephen Lewis). Jack and Stan are a couple of likely lads who enjoy doing what most young lads do - watching girls and getting into scrapes. However, their lot is complicated by the fact that Stan lives at home with his mum and frumpy sister Olive (Anna Karen) who plague his every turn. Furthermore, Blakey - with his catchphrase 'ooh I 'ate you, Butler' - is forever at their shoulder ready to scotch any designs they may have on anything but driving buses.

From Amazon.co.uk

Seven series they made of the classic British situation comedy, On The Buses. And that means this collected boxset of the television adventures of Blakey, Butler and co runs to in excess of a staggering 1900 minutes. That’s a lot of buses, a lot of entertainment and a very healthy dose of laughs.

Most of the laughs, of course, are generated by the eclectic collection of characters. Top of the bill, and as endearingly funny as he always was, is the harassed Inspector Blake, aka Blakey, whose run-ins with bus driver Butler and his partner in mischief Jack form the magic triangle on which much of the show’s success led. But spare a though too for the equally endearing side characters, none more so that Stan’s long-suffering sister, Olive.

Now granted, across the many, many hours you get in this collection of On The Buses, there are a fair selection of duff episodes, and it’s unlikely to be the kind of programme you’d ever try to get through in one or two sittings. But there’s a real, definite charm, regular chuckles and plenty of underrated writing bubbling beneath the surface here, and the end product is hard to resist. Perhaps wisely, the three, lesser, big screen adventures were left out of this set, but completists can pick them up perfectly easily in a boxset of their own.

Yet this particular On The Buses box is all about the programmes themselves, and there’s plenty contained within both in numerical and qualitative measures. Even for the most casual fan of the show, or those with a healthy interest in classic British sitcoms, it’s a terrific buy. --Jon Foster

I grew up on the exploits of the On The Buses characters,but on revisiting the scripts and shows 40 years later,it shows what an incredible stroke of luck was involved to create such a piece of pure entertainment.For a start,the initial premise involves an ordinary cockney bus-driver,who despairs of his disfunctional family,his dogs life at work,and his never-ending persuit of women and love.Not much on paper,but,the scripts are surprisingly fresh and relevant.A show ahead of its time,in many ways.It can appeal across the board.My own young children love the show.A lot of the credit must also go to the actors.Special mention must go to the following;Stephen Lewis(Blakey),who is awesome as the exasperated inspector.I just love the way he says "Butler".Just a name or word,but he's SO funny!Bob Grant,as Jack,the randy conductor.I can't beleive he could 'pull' any woman,but he's great nonetheless.Finally.special accolades must go to Michael Robbins,as Arthur,Stans brother in law.He's nothing short of magnificent,giving,in my opinion,THE most comically amazing performance in ANY show/film/whatever EVER!Just a look,grimace,or abarked line is enough to reduce me(and my family to stitches!)Perfect scripts,perfect cast,perfect fun!

I bought this because I love some of the older series from TV and I was not disappointed. I found it just as enjoyable and funny as the first time I saw it. I would recommend that if you haven't seen it, watch it. Sadly most of the main actors in the series have passed away now leaving only Anna Karen (Olive) and Stephen Lewis (The Inspector Blakey) left. However the show is a fitting tribute to them all. My wife and I watched the whole series from beginning to end and laughed loudly as we did. The extras are also brilliant. I can only hope that sometime in the future that they will release the 13 episodes of the spin off series starring Steven Lewis called Don't Drink The Water. The first episode is included as an extra along with Reg Varney's play The Best Legs In The Business. I have given this a five star rating as it deserves it for the hours of enjoyment it has brought.

After seeing this on Sky and instantly becoming hooked I decided to get the complete series. Its an absolute perfect example of a good British comedy, that was wrote in the day when political correctness was not even thought of (pity it didn't stop that way).

The superbly casted parts and superbly acted as well, make for a really good comedy. Its a laugh a minute has Jack & Stan try to do as little a work has possible and Blakey (the inspector) tries to make them do otherwise.

Its worth every penny.

Errrrrr, I hate you Butler : )

I'm in my 30,s so wasn't around when this aired. I remember an episode from my youth so decided to flatter my intrigue and bought the box set. I couldn't have spent my money any better. My fave sitcom of all time. This is essentially "carry on the buses", proper naughty seaside postcard humour. All the characters are treasures in their own right. The main characters being Butler, harper and blake with great support from Arthur, olive and mum. All episodes are a perfect 1/2 hour of enjoyment of nostalgia. Have watched an episode a week at least since watching the whole series in one go. Never get tired of the goings on and continue to watch after owning for 2 years. Add the films to the mix and a weekend will fly by. Appreciate comedy at its best, no swearing, just gentle comedy that you don't get nowadays.

Having lived through the 60's I can assure anyone watching On The Buses that it is all true. I remember the sexy clippy's uniforms that left nothing to the imagination, the banter that went on between the conductors the drivers and the passengers. The whole experience of catching a bus was totally brilliant you jumped on the back even when the bus was moving off, you could smoke upstairs, you didn't have to fiddle about with your money until you were comfortably seated, you felt very safe on a bus as the two man crew would look after you. Everything from the smell of the bus to the way the bus crew dressed was sexy.

This continued through the 70's with slight differences being made to save cost. Then suddenly some fool came up with the idea of bus drivers taking the fares and doing away with the conductors. This killed the pleasure of working as a psv driver and it destroyed the experience the passenger once enjoyed. Imagine On The Buses being made now, it would be as much as a flop as it is in reality.

Now we simply enjoy the new standard of buses but tolerate the new breed of pcv drivers who know little about customer services and of old fashioned values and as few can speak the mother tongue it is very rare to hear the type of cheeky and suggestive banter that once made your journey to work or home such a unique pleasure.

So historically speaking this DVD set is a true account of how it was back then in the good old days. You'd now have to go to London and get on a tourist bus to experience it and even these are getting rare.

It wasn't all good as Stan will show you, it was hard work driving an old bus, the money wasn't great and the shifts were awful.
