As a collector of old Sitcoms,this to me was a favourite at the time ..admittedly its a dated series which might not appeal today..The rauchy comedy was new and OTT at the time( alomg with Casanova,Emanuelle,etc) but totally tame by todays standards ,Recently acquired a copy of Whoops Bagdad a spin off series from this ..Fawlty towers and Black adder had it right ..Best just make a few great series and have em begging for more than making too many espisodes.. A rare find so get this series if you find it..Theres not many about

A great return to yesteryear, I missed this first time around beacause I hadn't been born. The bbc repeated it in the early 90's and I thought it was funny. It's different in many ways to the ordinary sit-com the audience asides and overacting is encouraged. Double meanings and political incorrectness rule and its all the better for it.

The Frankie Howerd Collection [DVD] Contains the complete Up Pompeii series plus Further Up Pompeii, Then Churchill Said to Me and The Best of Frankie Howerd. Much cheaper than this and much better value.

An excellent collection of a comedy series which is as funny now as it was when it was first made. Frankie Howerd is at his best as the slave Lurkio.

Brought back many memories. The films have stood the passing of time well and are as funny now as before.

Because of emmigration i never did see this series properly. Just the odd snippet on compilation DVDs. I bought this set and it has given me hours of fun. Just to see FH fooling around (you either love him or hate him)and the supporting cast doing the same thing week in and week out - but you know that it will be funny, is reminiscent of radio programs like Round the Horne.Full marks to the script writers, camera crew and everyone connected with this fun production that should be more widely watched.

You can get the complete UP POMPEII much cheaper, along with two other dvds in THE FRANKIE HOWERD COLLECTION (just search, easy to find, colour cover) its exactly the same as this set but with two other titles in a card slip cover. Also if you want the missing FURTHER UP POMPEII special from 1991 (this release and the identical one in the collection have the FURTHER UP POMPEII special from 1976, there were 2 shows with the same name...years apart). then also buy OH PLEASE YOURSELVES! Which is an excellent collection of Frankies more obscure ITV output.

Enjoyed this originally but after watching a few episodes I'm struggling a bit. Also the colour seems very faded.
