Not "Complete Series" but only a "Best Of" unfortunately.
Just as the US version of the Trigger Happy TV show doesn't work (due to the lack of the UK public, who are necessary for the gags to work); the timing and length of the show is also crucial. The show must be in it's half hour format to work: it's final gag being punctuated by the familar electric theme song outro; the silence of which is often followed by a final 'response line' from the last 'gag victim' (such as John McCririck) to great effect.
However, 'Best of Trigger Happy' dvd's edit a season's "best of" into one 90 minute programme. Not only is it totally mysterious as to who gets to decide for everyone which bits are "best", but the show simply does not work when edited into a 90-minute episode. It's just too long. The show was devised for half hour episodes, and that's the only way it works.
Like all "Best of" comedy dvds, this one is annoying because watching it will just remind you of all the scenes and sketches that are missing...which of course you'll remember from when you saw it on TV first time round. What's here is good, but it will just make you want to see the rest, which isn't here. That's why 'Best of' Dvd's are so annoying. (I'm looking at -you- 'Best of Adam & Joe'; 'Best of Trigger Happy 1,2,3'; 'Best of Balls of Steel';'Best of Smack The Pony'; 'Armstrong & Miller' etc).
Hopefully one of these days there will be a DVD release of "Trigger Happy TV: The Complete Series" that really is complete. (And a re-release of the 3 cd soundtracks would be a great idea, too!)
Then, can join the ranks of other comedy shows whose DVD's are COMPLETE![Much love to ya 'complete' dvd's out there: Fonejacker; Brass Eye; Jam; Day Today; Big Train; Bo Selecta; Vic Reeves Big Night Out; Stella Street; Sealab 2021; Dream On; Robot Chicken; Police Squad. Thank you for your complete completeness as I first watched you on TV, it's great to view you again the way I remember you!].
Get with the program, Trigger Happy TV! Release a DVD set of the complete series!
