5.0 out of 5 stars This edition IS complete. 13 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
From the Acorn Media website:
"Series One Episodes: Plough Your Own Furrow, Say Little Hen..., The Weaker Sex, Pig's Lib, The Thing in the Cellar, The Pagan Rite and Backs to the Wall."

In response to my email to 2 entertain Video Limited:
"I can confirm that The Good Life Series 1 will be restored from the original masters."

Gosh, how long have I waited for this..........

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good Life 6 May 2010
Format:DVD
A brilliant series which has been unavailable for far too long. Thankfully, according to an enquiry I made to them, this is the start of Acorn Media releasing all four series again in the very near future!

5.0 out of 5 stars comedy greats 15 April 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
this is a wonderful series good to see its being released at a more affordable price, what can one say about this sitcom but an essential purchase if you like good comedy with light viewing, a great deal of fun and hilarious moments from all stars involved.
an essential purchase ' @ NICE TRIP BACK TO THE 1970'S FOR GOOD COMEDY.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real reminder of how simple life can be 23 Aug 2010
Format:DVD
We have really enjoyed watching this series and are looking forward to purchasing the other series. It's lovely to see the now very famous Richard Briers and Felicity Kendal in their early and probably best loved roles. fab quality of both picture and sound and with the addition of subtitles it means that I can enjoy the programme too as I am hearing impaired and have not been able to watch it with subtitles before.

Had watched a couple of episodes and enjoyed them, but wanted to see how the series began! This DVD takes us back to how it all got started. These are some of my favourite actors too!

The content was even better than remembered but the last episode on the DVD was faulty and kept sticking. This was a disappointment - can I return it and arrange some exchange? JW
