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.
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.

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.
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.
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!
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!

I love the show but can`t say the same for the picture quality which is grainy in parts, maybe someday they will give a remastered version which this great show truly deserves.Published 4 months ago by rex
The Royle Family is great entertainment - extremely funny, and sometimes painfully sad (The Queen of Sheba). Read morePublished 5 months ago by KXIII
