Format: DVD
1970s humour at its best. Do not try to compare this with Monty Python - this should tickle a completely different part of you! If you remember the 1970s (and the Goodies) you must enjoy this, as there is a strong element of nostalgia - from the furniture to the social topics (disco, kung fu, etc). However, there is more to it than that - I still think it is genuinely funny. Personally I think that Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Bill Oddie are exceptionally talented and deserve much more recognition for this masterpiece that they produced. There is a wide range of humour in these programmes and they should appeal to a wide range of ages. Buy this double dvd and see what you think. Consider the "special effects" - they are clever, original and amusing at the same time. Why is this programme not repeated on television? And even better, there is commentary on three of the episodes by the three Goodies. Just hearing the three of them together again makes this dvd special. I have enjoyed the things they have done since leaving the Goodies (especially the brilliant I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue") but to people who were young in the 1970s these three performers will always be The Goodies.

A must for any serious comedy lover. Never repeated in the last 20 or so years for reasons only the BBC know. As good as if not better than Monty Python. Far outstrips all so called flag ship comedies on the Beeb, including Fools & Horses. An absolute must see. Birds of a Feather, AB Fab, Vicar of Dibly and all the other lovies 1/2 hours are no match. Tim Brooke-Tailor, Graham Gardner & Bill Oddie all deserve the place in history for this series.

Format: DVD
For those who are wondering, this is a combination of both the "At Last" and "At Last...A Second Helping" DVD releases. In other words, they just took the 2 DVDs that are in each of those releases, and put all 4 of them into this box set.

My only quibble is that there aren't more episodes in the sets!

Format: DVD
This new dvd version looks better now than when the episodes were originally broadcast back in the seventies. The grainy 16mm film look has been replaced with crystal clear computer enhanced sequences. "The Goodies And The Beanstalk" also pays homeage to Alfred Hitchcock and the Marx Brothers as well as It's A Knockout with Eddie Waring.
There are sight gags by the bucketload too. The first time the trio mount the trandem is a treasure. And when they volunteer to do some light housekeeping they end up lighthouse keeping.
There's over 4 hours of top class comedy on this package including some out takes where Tim fluffs his lines and Bill has trouble with an old 78 rpm record.
If you enjoyed The Goodies first time round you'll really enjoy this dvd collection. Hopefully they'll release a few more episodes soon.

As a kid I loved The Goodies, sitting on the sofa doubled-up with laughter trying to contain my weak bladder whilst my parents tutted and said how silly it was. Then the Eighties came and The Goodies vanished forever.
Classic comedies like Fawlty Towers were frequently repeated, but the BBC never showed The Goodies again, which suggested that it wasn't the comedic materpiece that I'd always held it to be in my youth. Nevertheless, for old times sake I bought the DVD and switched on expecting a lot of nostalgia, but few laughs.
I was wrong.
The Goodies is still fresh and funny and although I'm now nearly 40, I still found myself laughing at the sheer uninhibited silliness of it all. Perhaps I haven't grown up, but I defy anyone to sit through 'Ecky Thump' without laughing.
Thanks Bill, Graham and Tim for giving us a lot of fun.

This 4 disc set contains two DVD boxes in a cardboard sleeve:

The Goodies ... At Last

TheGoodies ... At last a second helping

If you own one or both of those then you do not need to get this.

If you own neither check out the price.

It says digitally enhanced but I assume that the 'old' DVDs are as well.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The DVD has 8 episodes and a previously unreleased "precursor to The Goodies" called "Broaden your Mind". Total running time for the 2-disc set is 255 minutes.
From the start, it's choice, being at once both familiar and "new". I was surprised at how much of the show I remembered, and how much I had forgotten. Episodes include The Tower of London, Gender Education, Kitten Kong, The Goodies and the Beanstalk, Kung Fu Kapers, Lighthouse Keeping Loonies, Earthanasia and Saturday Night Grease.
Depsite the PG rating, my 9-yr old loves the show and isn't at all shocked by it ;-) It's fun comedy with nothing spiteful or nasty about it; it's just a shame the BBC won't agree to screen these programmes today. Other "high points" include Bill Oddie's teriffic "70s Beatnik" outfits, and the amazing background music.
A very good buy which won't disappoint. If you liked the shows, you'll be smiling from the moment the music starts and the titles start to run. Picture quality from the remastered DVDs is excellent.

Format: DVD
I was very young when the Goodies were first shown and it was a special privelege to stay up and watch them. After I bought the DVD I felt like a kid again and laughed along to their silly antics. My laughter only drowned out by my six year old son who has found it as funny as I did.
It's comedy that appeals to all ages. It may look a little dated now but was well ahead of it's time when it was released.
It's amazing to think how much must have been spent on each episode (which ultimately was why it was axed) as some of the sets are impressive even now.
The BBC need to release more of these episodes. I for one would buy them
