5.0 out of 5 stars ALL HAIL TO THE ALE! 21 April 2009
Verified Purchase
I've been waiting nearly ten years for this complete collection of TIME GENTLEMEN PLEASE to come out on DVD, and it's been well worth the wait, I THINK IT'S GREAT!!!
If you like your comedy as dark as a pint of guiness you'll love all 37 episodes of this brilliant British comedy. If I was to be dumped on a desert island with a solar powered dvd player, this collection is one of the few I'd be grateful for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! 22 May 2009
By G. J. Oxley TOP 1000 REVIEWER
As a major fan of Al Murray's character, The Pub Landlord, I looked forward to watching this. But if I'm honest, I had fairly low expectations. However, of the 37 episodes, I reckon only half a dozen (if that) are sub-standard, while the rest are frequently laugh-out loud funny.

Al Murray perfectly brings his stage persona to life and the superb ensemble cast regularly chip in with brilliant contributions. The characters - The Prof, the flatulent Terry (Phil Daniels), Steve the unpaid barman and the 'old geezer' (we never learn his name) are brilliantly drawn and wonderfully played. Series One also contains an excellent performance by the lovely Julia Sawalha as an Aussie barmaid, though she's replaced by another, younger actress for Series Two.

It also features frequent appearances by Marc Bannerman (Gianni de Marco in 'Eastenders') as rival landlord Greg Thompson. His over the top performance and comic timing are an absolute revelation.

I stand in awe of the two main writers: Al Murray himself and Richard Herring, who get occasional help from the great Stewart Lee (who also acts as script editor for both series). This is top stuff - original, inventive and full of top class swearing! Their skit of Kubrick's last movie 'Eyes Wide Shut' (entitled 'Optics Wide Shut') is pure genius.

This originally aired on Sky, and as I don't subscribe, I missed this first time around. However, at this price for over 14 hours viewing, it's an absolute must for lovers of modern British comedy. A couple of the lads I work with were sniffy and disdainful when I bought this, arguing it was on the same broad humour level as the 'Carry On' films. This viewpoint is frankly wrong: 'Time Gentlemen Please' is clever, funny and chocfull of great running jokes. It's also refreshingly non-PC.

Absolutely superb stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Saviour of the Licencing trade 26 Jun 2010
By Rich T
Al Murray is a genius, not forgetting Richard Herring.

This must be the only time I missed seeing a classic on the box first time round as we did not have Sky TV. Yes! The worlds greatest Sit Com was shown on Sky first outing, nearly 10 years ago. The good eggs they are recently shown a re run. I was never sure if I had missed any episodes and on first viewing I knew I must have every show on DVD anyhow, which this DVD provides, I think.

Al Murray aka 'our Alston', is the one person on this planet who will save the failing Pub Trade single handedly.

If I had my way, I would make it compulsory for everybody on this planet to sit down and watch this work of genius, fair enough, the guys would be allowed refreshments, Ale and the Ladies, fruit based drinks and free crisps as long as it don't interfere with the TV viewing else barred from the house.

I am searching Amazon for the purpose of buying a blazer, white shirt with pub logo, tie, grey trousers and off to the barbour for a number 1.

Please make some more shows Al. Looking forward to seeing you on the box again.

Anyone wanting to send a friend or to buy for themselves a funny, this is it. The fact it was on Sky, there will be millions of tv viewers out there that don't realise this show ever existed and will love it and never tire of it.

Hope you all love it as much as I do and if you do, buy a copy for a friend. They will be forever grateful to you.

Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars TGP - It's A Wonderful Pint 15 Feb 2010
A sitcom showcasing the Pub Landlord's finest hour, join him for a beer in the snug with his assorted bar staff and misfit regulars - a handful of hollow-legged hop fanciers for whom a public house is a public home.

Al Murray steals the show with his popular creation, serving behind the bar with a fine supporting cast including Marc Bannerman (rival publican Greg Thomson); Phil Daniels (Terry `that's the woman I'm going to marry' Brooks); Julia Sawalha & Emma Pierson (feisty barmaids Janet & Connie); Jason Freeman (hapless barman Steve `that's coming out of your wages' Crosby); Rebecca Front (brewery rep `Bloody Ms Jackson, cow!'); Roy Heather (The Old Man); Andrew Mackay (The Prof); Jeff Rudom & Janine Buckley (The Huge Man & Tiny Lady); Barrie Gosney (Uncle Barrie); Gary (the pub dog) & a host of guest appearances from top character actors & comedians, including Alexander Armstrong; Dan Antopolski; Hilda Braid; Edna Doré; Jenny Éclair; Graham Fellows; Greg Fleet; Mike Gunn; Richard Herring; Terry Humphrey; Trevor Lock; Paul Putner; Frank Skinner; Michael Smiley; Dave Thompson; Rebecca Wheatley; Geoffrey Whitehead & many more.

As other reviewers have already remarked, it's a show you can watch over & over - in addition to a plethora of catchphrases, running gags & double entendres, there are interesting plotlines, unexpected topics & clever parodies mixed together expertly with Murray's familiar character.

An amazing thirty-seven episodes packed into two series, co-written by Al Murray & Richard Herring, with script editor Stewart Lee, it's never yet been shown on terrestrial television so now is your chance to own it for less than the price of a round of drinks! Mine's a fruit-based drink for the lady & does anyone want some free crisps?
