By Mr. A. Whiteside TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 31 Oct. 2010
Format: DVD
There can be little doubt that 'One Foot In The Grave' is a classic British sit-com. How many of us listen to Victor's moaning and realise that he sounds just like us? Every single episode is featured here including the Christmas specials. There are many laugh out load moments and it is beautifully performed by Richard Wilson and Annette Crosbie. In fact, each and every performer fits their relative roles like a glove.

There are several extras here to make this an even better package including some commentaries and a documentary on the series. You don't need me to tell you just what fantastic value this box set is and even though many of the scenes have been seen loads of times they are still guaranteed to make you chuckle.

This series is right up there with Dad's Army, Porridge, Rising Damp and Steptoe and Son. An absolute must have for your collection.

As far as sitcoms go, this is a true classic. It is a highly experimental series, and never afraid to take risks. While it makes fun of the ordinary annoyances that life throws at us, it extends into the surreal. It often has outrageous and dark or disturbing storylines, and deals with some of the most serious things that we will encounter. These include when Victor displays symptoms of bowel cancer, only to realise that it was caused by Mrs.Warboys' black pudding. There are some outstanding episodes, such as the "One Foot In The Algarve" special, which features Peter Cook, and could probably have been shown in the cinema. Richard Wilson and Annette Crosbie, needless to say, are perfect, but the supporting cast really add to the hilarious atmosphere. Angus Deayton is brilliant as the long-suffering Patrick, who is, in fact, just a carbon copy of Victor. Owen Brenman gives a wonderful performance as the overly-chirpy, possibly demented Nick Swainey. Doreen Mantle is, of course, unforgettable as Mrs.Warboys. As for the sad ending, well it is the ultimate stretching of boundaries, which sets the series' future as a classic ,in stone. It is a unique work of art, which will never be bettered.

Sometime's there's nothing funnier than other peoples misfortune (just watch you've been framed for proof) and the writers of this comedy knew that. However, you can't help but feel for poor old Victor.

Every episode of this series is packed with original and outrageous scenarios and ideas, not to mention great performances.

The scripts are tight, the characters brilliant and I can't help but notice that everyday, the more junk mail I get, the more market research phone calls I get, and the more automated phone services I have to deal with, the more and more like Victor I become.

One Foot In The Grave lets us laugh at everything that annoys us in life about the idiots we're forced to deal with on a daily basis, and also, find warmth in the fact that it could always be a lot worse.

The great thing about every episode of these is that, just when you think it can't get any worse for Mr. Meldrew, it does. And in some brilliantly bizarre way that's pushed to its extreme for full comic affect.

This remains one of the few TV series that has me laughing so hard no sound comes out and I find it hard to breath. To sum up - easily one of the best British comedies packed full of memorable scenes and scenarios... if you haven't seen it, well... I don't believe it.

Review as at 31/12/2010

The description is a bit misleading the box set does contain the Xmas specials despite the description showing series 1-6 and the stand alone disk being offered in a deal.

This box set is a must have, containing every single episode of this fantastically written and wonderfully casted/acted sitcom.

What's so good about this collection is it's 12 dvds, the entire series 1-6 including every Christmas/One off special as well as bonus Documentary 'The Story Of One Foot In the Grave' and the 'Britains Best Sitcom' featurette, all in all, this is hours and hours of absorbing, funny, heartwarming comedy which appeals to all ages.

I'd recently got hold of the Only Fools And Horses series 1-7 box set, and the downside of that was the missing christmas specials and one offs and feature lengths, as they contain integral parts of the continual storylines (eg Del meeting Raquel etc)

And with this box set, with every single moment available in chronological order, you don't miss a thing.

I'm sure if you're viewing this item and reading my hastily typed review, you already know how brilliant this sitcom was, the writing of David Renwick, the absolutely brilliant performances of Richard Wilson and Annette Crosbie, as well as the brilliant other characters such as Mrs Warboys, Mr Swainey, Patrick and Pippa and numerous guest stars such as Paul Merton, Barbara Windsor, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Eric Idle to name a few.

This is extremely good value for money and highly recommended, oh, and i've personally found no problems at all with audio/visual sync, so i wouldn't worry about that.

'I've been replaced by a box... It's standard procedure apparantley for a man of my age. The next stage is to stick you inside one."

Timeless and brilliant, and in my opinion quite underated
