Genius comedy! I remember my parents watching this and never 'getting' it. I was fortunate enough to catch an episode at a friend's house and now I'm hooked. The scripts are so sublimely clever and the acting just brilliant. It is quite amazing how the politics of the past has so much relevance today. It may be 25 years old, but you'd never know.

Jim Hacker and his antics get a worthwhile Season 2 release on DVD. In my opinion, some of the episodes on here are the show's finest, including "The Compassionate Society" and "A Question of Loyalty". Sir Humphries wily behaviour and witty remarks get more attention. You can classify every episode in one of two categories - whether Humphry gets his way or whether the Minister gets his way. The former are far more amusing but is is quite funny to see Sir Humphry quietly fume to himself when things do not go his way. The "Weasel" is no longer with us but Bernard, who can't quite see why Sir Humphry does the things he does - is, looking as confused as ever!
Overall some great entertainment by the BBC. No special features on the disc except for subtitles but is is nevertheless a worthwhile release.

Yes minister is deservingly beeing brought out on DVD. Eventhough the series is over twenty years old the comedy has not turned old. The stories told in each episode might have just as easily happend today. The way both civilservants and politicians try to win one over on each other is hilarious. This DVD is recommended by anyone with a passing interrest in (making fun of) politics.

Perfect script, perfect acting, plotlines that are completely plausible and, incredibly, as much out of today's headlines as thay were way back when.
This is not your average sitcom. If you want to be engaged and amused both intelligently and intellectually, this (or any other disc from the 'Yes, Minister' and 'Yes, Prime Minister' series) is a 'must-have'.

This second series of Yes Minister contains another seven episodes of this excellent show. This series is pretty much the same setup as the prier series with Jim Hacker being stonewalled by Sir Humphrey, but when the formula works this well there is no reason to change it. Even now Yes Minister remains one of the most intelligently written, well performed and simply one of the funniest shows that I have ever seen. This second series does include some of my favourite episodes from the entire show, including `The Quality of Life' and the brilliant `A Question of Loyalty'. Yes Minister just gets better as it gets older and in many ways, still remains politically relevant today.

I love this series! Even though it is about 20 years old, it is still very funny and pertinent to our day. Brilliant actors too! Highly recommended.

The manoeuvres of impatient Jim Hacker and wily Sir Humphrey to enforce or thwart changes in the conduct of government business continue their irreverent way - as before, not (according to one formerly in such a situation) totally true to life but not totally divorced from it either. Don't look for great depth of character, or any practical solution to the nation's problems, but enjoy an occasional half-hour of hilarious entertainment leaving some food for thought in its wake.

Nobody needs me to tell them how great this is, and time doesn't diminish it at all - simply one of the very best sitcoms TV ever produced.

As always this is suberb and does not date. The comedy is most definitely a classic very worth buying and owning for years to come.
