5.0 out of 5 stars Long awaited show now on DVD! 30 Jun 2012
By Luke73

It's been a long time, that fans and viewers alike will welcome the The Famous Five on DVD. Partly made by German production, copyright delayed both Season 1 and this Season 2 DVD box sets. Though they have been released already overseas like Germany, Italy, France and even Australia with various DVD cover designs. However the German cover BOX set is similar to this UK release.

This review is for this SEASON 2 DVD set.

I remember this series on it's first broadcast back in the late 1970s and it's just as refreshing today. Based on the Enid Blyton's books this series spawned 13 episodes. It's great looking back at these shows when life outside was adventurous and free from today's technological age. Though the stories were simple and straight forward there's an innocent charm about The Famous Five, that lacks in a lot of Childrens shows nowadays.

Though not listed on websites including Amazon until now! the bonus extras on this SEASON 2 box set are:
Trailer with original soundtrack (2 mins approx)
Slideshow-Tribute to actors (3 mins approx)
Picture Galleries: 1 Film locations then and now; 2 Promotional material; 3 Screenshots; 4 Autograph cards and press pictures

'The trailer' is a compendium of the 1st and 2nd seasons with 3/4 of the TV Theme being played. This was an Australian/New Zealand trailer presummebaly recorded off air by a fan during it's broadcast as dipicted by the vhs quality. It's a shame the makers of this DVD didn't use the stereo theme version over this trailer.

'Slideshow-Tribute to actors' is baffling, because this contains some strange music over some location photos from some of the stories. Nothing else. Photos of the actors should have been inter-twine to make this more effectual.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the original Series 2 Jan 2014

There is another series from the 90s available but this is the series from the 70s and it sticks much more closely to the books. The acting and general feel of the series is much better as well. Great fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for the family 4 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
Like Season 1, improbable fun. I'd recommend it to all oldies who remember the books with affection, and to children who enjoy asdventure stories, probably from about eight upwards.
