Product Description

Featuring an exclusive new interview with Richard Briers, and celebrating 35 years since its original broadcast, THE GOOD LIFE is now available for the first time in series order. Having thrown themselves into a world of suburban farming, befuddling their neighbour Margo and her more supportive husband Jerry, Tom and Barbara are busy adapting their lives to their new choice of lifestyle. In this second series, they find themselves tempted by commercial enterprise whether from their harvest or their pottery skills, as well as discovering the benefits of public relations. A little police problem when a thief takes a leek, the possibility of a commune developing next door, and a bit of a boar the important bit all add to an uproar that can only leave Margo at her wit s end. Series Two Episodes: Just My Bill The Guru of Surbiton Mr Fix-It the Day Peace Broke Out Mutiny Home, Sweet Home Going to Pot?

From Amazon.co.uk

The Good Life has proved an enduring jewel in the BBC's mainstream comedy archive. More than 25 years after it first appeared in our living rooms, nostalgia must be a major reason for its appeal. A whole generation of young men--and their fathers--found the weekly sight of Felicity Kendal as Barbara Good, pert in denim dungarees, irresistible. But it's the quality of the playing that has really stood the test of time and triumphs over a premise--self-sufficiency in Surbiton--that now seems naïve. Even in 1975, a Tom Good (a masterpiece of comic eccentricity from Richard Briers) quitting the rat race would probably have sold up his semi and chanced his luck as a small holder somewhere more remote than suburban Surrey.

Comic tensions arise not just from the Goods' daily struggle to beat the system on their own terms, but also from the relationship with their incredulous, often horrified, but usually supportive neighbours. Penelope Keith's Margo Leadbetter remains one of the great comic creations in British sitcom history--a simmering volcano of conservatism waging her own battle against creeping mediocrity in all aspects of life, whose human frailty somehow keeps her loveable. Paul Eddington as Jerry, her long-suffering husband, spars splendidly. --Piers Ford --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Again brilliant. 30 July 2010
Format:DVD
Once again The Good Life series 2 excels. Margo is her brilliant snobbish self, Jerry is marvellously henpecked, Tom lets life wash over him and Barbara knows exactly how to deal with them all. The episodes are still good after 30 years, plus this is a complete series, there is nothing left to say, if you are a fan, you will love it. Happy watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good Life - Series 2 18 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Brilliant classic comedy for a rainy Sunday afternoon. You will never tire of watching the episodes over and over again and remembering all those dreadful outfits we worn in the 70's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old but Fantastic 1 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
I can remember watching this when I was a child and it was just as good to watch it as an adult. The scripts are brilliant the acting is fantastic. It made me laugh and laugh and laugh. It is a series you can watch over and over again and you keep seeing things that you may have missed before. This is a classic comedy and I could recommend it to anyone it really is one of the best ever produced and played.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old but still great! 13 Mar 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's an old show, just watch the flares and ancient Volvo's fly past, not a sight of a mobile phone, P.C. or television in some cases. But the comedy, the characters and situations are as fresh today as they were in the 70's. I think it's so refreshing to watch a T.V. show depicting that couples can be happy together, united and committed, instead of todays nonstop image of cheating partners and soup opera fights. Many stories do stretch the imagination as we all know that life isn't that goody goody, but it's nice to think it could be. If you have been living on Mars for 30 years and have not ever seen this show then give it a try, and see how many kipper ties u can spot!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good Life DVD. 29 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched and enjoyed `The Good Life`, as a TV series, many years ago so bought the DVD to recapture the past, you might say. As one find themselves in `old age` it is good remembering past times when one was young and enjoyed the more simple things in life.
Well worth the money and good to look back on! PAST FORWARD is how I would describe it.
