Definitely one of the best Britcom-DVD-Boxes!
This DVD-Box-Set includes all 4 series (26 episodes) of the
highly successful comedy series starring Rik Mayall as the
ruthless MP Alan B'Stard.
Great characters like his loyal servant Piers (Michael
Troughton), his revengeful wife Sarah (Marsha Fitzalan)
or his creative accountant Norman Bormann (R.R. Cooper),
whose sex changes during the first series, contribute to the fun.
There are also cameos from fellow comedians Stephen Fry
& Hugh Laurie and Chris Ryan (The Young Ones, Bottom).
The 1990 one-hour-special "Who shot Alan B'Stard?" is,
thankfully, also included. Strangely, the special is placed
at the end of the 4th disc / series, although it takes place
between the 2nd & 3rd series.
The long deleted video release "The Absolute B'Stard Box Set"
placed the special rightly at the start of the 3rd cassette.
Missing on the DVD-Box is a 15min. Comic Strip-special
"The New Statesman at No.10", but this was no real episode,
and Rik Mayall was acting partly out of character.
So there is no real drawback, as you have all regular episodes
together in a box, and the price is unbeatable, considering
what other DVD-Boxes cost.
If you like Rik Mayall and comedy like "Black Adder",
this one is definitely for you!!!
