Reviews

Where other sitcoms thrived on conflict and tension, the title characters from Terry and June were happily married, middle-aged and middle-class. But despite the blandness of the setting, the series ran to 65 episodes over nine series in its eight-year reign. Why? Well, though it was rarely laugh-out-loud funny the presence of two of Britain's best-loved comedy actors - Terry Scott (the Carry On films) and June Whitfield (Absolutely Fabulous) made this a cosy guilty pleasure. Plots inevitably revolved around Terry's attempts to ingratiate himself with his boss, or his inability with inanimate objects, with disaster usually being averted by the long-suffering June.

This DVD contains episodes from the penultimate eighth series.

Firstly let me make it perfectly clear the 1 star I have awarded is not for the excellent tv series. For the actual programme content I would award the dvd 5 stars without fail. Terry And June is a classic piece of BBC comedy. The episodes are very funny particually Terry In Court.

My gripe is the way that 2 Entertain rip their customers off. They released Terry And June series 8 as the complete series but it wasnt. They missed out the last 7 episodes and now they have released them as series 8 volume 2 and are charging around £10. This means that series 8 will now cost the average customer around £22. Why didn't they release all episodes in one volume ? It is yet another case of 2 Entertain being greedy and ripping of fans of classic television.

Season Eight part two of Terry and June is one of nine series.
Terry Scott and June Whitfield star in this Eighth series of "Terry and June".
This is an entertaining bit of farcical comedy that has a lot to offer. Series Eight has some very fine episodes indeed with true comedy and a warm, comfortable and very experienced approach to comedy.

This Eighth series was transmitted in 1985. It was originally transmitted between September and December that year. (The episodes on this release are from October to December) These episodes could have been transmitted in the previous year 1984 but they were not. (The last episodes from series seven had been transmitted in 1983). So by 1985 there had been a gap and to make up for it there were thirteen episodes in series eight. The last episode represents the Christmas edition for that year. This release contains the last seven episodes and you need volume one to complete the run.
It is still a very entertaining series nearly thirty years later.
Each episode has a different and brief comedy intro as the opening credits begin. They are the same intros that were used in season three, four, five, six and seven Each is a variation on the same idea that Terry takes some drinks outside to join June for a nice sit in the garden. But each version is different and slapstick.

This is an excellent set of seven programmes from a classic comedy and when you consider the stuff that's passed off as comedy these days you realise just how good Terry and June really were.

A dustcart goes into Terry's car while June is driving and the driver blames June. Terry decides to take him to court and represent himself, using TV and film fictional barristers as his education to be a lawyer.

Without wanting to give too much away this is well worth the fair price that Amazon are selling it for ! The episodes involving law suits against the council bin-men and chaos surrounding dishes picking up foreign TV channels are just hilarious. Many of the characters such as Miss Dingle , Malcolm & his wife , Sir Denis Hodge and Austin the Vicar are superbly written and acted. I think that the writers got better as they went on and Terry Scot & June Whitfield did a fine job making us all laugh for a decade or so when they where churning out new episodes every so often.

Watching this does sadden one a bit - hearing the Dallas tune at the end of one episode reminds me just how great Carry On Texas could have been ( Terry Scot was due to be in that one in 1987). Also what a shame that they never finished filming Terry & June The Movie. But one ought to be grateful for having these lovely series of this fine sitcom available on DVD - they never fail to cheer me up ! This comic gem puts a lot of modern rubbish to shame and is a must for people with a well developed funny bone !

I have been watching all the Terry and June DVDs up to Series 8 Volume 1, for the past year. (I hadn't realised there was a Volume 2 to Series 8 until recently, nor that there was a Volume 9).
I received Series 8 Volume 2 today, and there is a world of difference between the programs on this DVD, and Series 8 Volume 1! It's as if Terry and June are five years older, Terry is genuinely angry all the time, and the scripts are nowhere near as good as 8:1. Does anybody know why this is? There is a noticeable and marked difference in 'feel' between Series 8 Volume 2 and Series 8 Volume 1, and I found these episodes very disappointing. All the actors seem to have lost their magic, which they had in the earlier series. Terry's boss is completely different, even from the first moment he appears, in the second programme, he is a different man (as it were). It's as if the entire DVD has been 'BBC-fied' - i.e. turned into the pointless rubbish 'comedies' that they started churning out in the years after Terry and June. (You know, the sort of comedies that simply weren't funny, and that got an audience purely because they were shown during peak viewing hours, and people watched them because there was nothing better on the other side).
Here's hoping that Volume 9 is better.
