Product Description

Product Description

Box set of all three series of the Caroline Aherne's Liverpudlian sitcom. In series one we are introduced to the domestic conflicts of the Liverpudlian Royle clan, with Aherne as Denise, daughter of Jim (Ricky Tomlinson) and Barbara (Sue Johnston), and soon to be wed to boyfriend Dave (Craig Cash). In the second series Denise has now wed boyfriend Dave, but the Royle family sofa is no less crowded for that; they and Denise's mum Barbara, dad Jim and brother Anthony (Ralf Little) still bicker and banter while gathered round the television set. The third series sees the addition of Denise and Dave's first child, 'Jim Keanu Ronan Royle', which brings its share of new trials and tribulations to the semi-inert world of now-grandparents Jim and Barbara. Also includes the 1999 and 2000 Christmas Special episodes.

Synopsis

This four disc box set features all episodes from the complete series of The Royle Family, a show which revolves around the sitting room of Jim Royle and his wife Barbara.

Excellent series - don't do as Amazon recommends and buy it with the Queen of Sheba, as this is IN this edition, so you'd only end up with it twice. We watched this over Christmas, and by New Year felt like honorary members of the Royle family! It's feelgood (because we all know someone like Jim, even though we might not say it to the person in question!), homely (to have so much go on around a TV is just amazing - and the only time we feel as if we're missing out is when we miss out on seeing Denise's wedding...) - and just a pure piece of comedy genius. The only downside, if I had to find any, was that the only DVD bonus features come with the Queen of Sheba programme, they're hilarious, but I would have ADORED to have seen some of the other out-takes from the other three series.

Everyone should watch this series, it is, without doubt, the best comedy of the last 25 years.

If you haven't seen it before, let me just say it's the distillation of lifetimes of north-western family feuds, fun, fights, festivity, farts and fig-rolls in half-hour slots: all from one sofa.

This collection includes the recent finale episode which had me laughing until I cried and crying until I laughed.

For anyone who hasn't watched the royal family the concept of sitting watching a family who are sitting watching tv may seem very non-comical... however i guarantee you will love it!

The casting is genius - led by Jim in his crusty jeans.
The writing is amazing - only this show can make you laugh one minute then be near to tears the next. (watch the queen of sheeba edition - you'll see what i mean)

Buy this - you wont be disappointed.

Enjoy

There is no much to add to the good reviews already here, just one tech matter that may be of use to HoH or people from non English-speaking countries: There are HoH subtitles!!!!

I speak spanish and I'm used to watch period BBC productions so it is hard for me to understand the "accent" of many of the caracters; subtitles are therefore much appreciated, although I needed to go online to check a few bits of dialogue I didnt understand!

I picked up this set a few months back... It was great value and still is....
This show is a marmite one though... you either love it or hate it...
For some people it moves too slow and seems daft and unfunny,
But for the rest of us, it is such a sharply observed character based comedy...

Remember Poor old Anthony who can do nothing right, lazy old denise, dopey dave aka denise's lapdog, lazy miserable old git Jim, the ever patient and loving Barbara, crafty old nana, light fingered twiggy, chatty neighbour next door mary and her monosyllabic husband joe, and their daughter... Cheryl, the girl always on a diet and hoping to lose a few pounds....

This show was ground breaking at the time it launched in 1998, many were baffled at its approach to comedy, it certainly wasn't your average canned-laughter-sitcom...

It is so real in many ways, the characters are so well written that you can really identify with them... we all know people like at least some of these characters... that's why it really cracks you up at times, the things they do/ say or the way they behave are so funny and familiar.. very relatable comedy.

Caroline Aherne and Craig Cash are geniuses in my book...

My fave episodes:
Any time nana visits, she is so crafty and jim really meets his match in her... the christmas special when denise has baby david... it's actually so moving and funny watching jim not know what to do as denise starts going into labour, the christening episode... and Barbara getting jim and twiggy re-decorating the house, of course the last episode when nana dies is great... again hilarious but genuinely moving.
.
it is great to see that the show is continuing ... I caught the christmas special a few weeks back.. I hadn't heard there was going to be one this year... a nice surprise... it was hilarious.... And with over 10 million viewers, I hear more specials are planned... great news!

Enjoy.

Well what can you say abou the Royle Family. A Brilliant Comedy series and fly on the wall of family life of a certain class. You should watch this if this is your background and it should be compulsory if you are not. This pack includes all the episodes up to but excluding the 2008 Xmas speacial. However it contains and absolute jewel called the queen of sheba that is worth this price alone.

Superb stuff. On the surface it may not sound like anything special - a family sat on the sofa watching TV - but it really is addictive watching, uncannily perceptive and absolutely hilarious, whilst at the same time there are moments that had me crying, for instance the touching scence between Denise and her Dad in the bathroom when Denise is in labour, and, of course, The Queen of Sheba episode. I stayed up watching episode after episode, not having seen them since they were originally broadcast. Comedy Genius.
