5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant
If you need cheering up, and aren't too bothered about political correctness, this is for you. British comedy at its best, from the era that really knew how to do it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Vile racist sexist homphobic NOT AT ALL FUNNY s***
Cringe making from beginning to end.
To think that people used to laugh at this, apparently inane, but actually poisonous bile is enough to give you nightmares.

Main point though, it was CRAP and NOT FUNNY unless you were about 5

If you need cheering up, and aren't too bothered about political correctness, this is for you. British comedy at its best, from the era that really knew how to do it. Farcical characters and situations , coupled with a cast, known and unknown, who could get the best out of the material. Windsor Davies as the typical army Sergeant Major, bawling his gills out at a troup of entertainers, most of whom have no business in the army at all. And Michael Bates playing the archetypal indian bearer to a T. Pick a wet miserable day. Settle down with a beer, and start at series one. You won't go far wrong.

This review is from: It Ain't Half Hot Mum - Complete Series One to Four [DVD] (DVD)
It Ain't Half Hot Mum was a comedy show written by Croft and Perry and told the story of an awful Royal Artillery concert party in the last war stationed in India at first then Burma, the Officers were complete silly arses, and the Sgt. Major was always thinking of ways to get the load of "poofs" as he calls them back into active service.

A very very funny series (I have all eight series now)with such characters as Gunner Lofty Sugden the Singer, Bombadier "Gloria" Beaumont female impersonater, Gunner Parkins (who the Sgt. Major thought was his son)Gunner Graham the music director was an ex Cambridge boy and was ridiculed by the Sgt. Major for talking La De Da...

I would recommend this series to anyone who likes British Classic Comedy.........

Shuttttttt Upppppp!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great British Comedy Series!, 14 April 2010

An excellent remastered collection of the first half of this superb series. The only criticism, two episodes are lost, so the only copies known were from the vaults of Channel 7 in this country. Picture quality is bad for these two episodes. But picture quality of the other twenty-eight episodes is excellent. So if you love this great series, or are a fan of British Comedy from this era, do not hesitate to buy this set. Especially at the great price being offered on Amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars old-fashioned comedy, 2 Jun 2010
This review is from: It Ain't Half Hot Mum - Complete Series One to Four [DVD] (DVD)
I loved this programme when it was originally aired and it's just as good now. Over the top characters and ridiculous situations but harmless fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Ain't Half Hot Mum series 1-4, 6 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It Ain't Half Hot Mum - Complete Series One to Four [DVD] (DVD)
This is a series that is somewhat difficult to review as all the plots throughout all the series are based on Gunner Beaumont the "female" lead of a concert party of troops based in India. As Beaumont and some of the others are female impersonators, innuendo as to their sexuality comes fast and furious. In today's climate such innuendo can easily cause offence among the gay community and I imagine it is for this reason that none of the series is ever repeated on the BBC. A shame, as to me it is as funny and stands the test of time as well as 'Dad's Army'. Ex service personnel will find a great many parallels with their own experiences of the Officers v Other Ranks divide. Five stars from me but others may have reservations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Series remembered, 1 Aug 2010
This review is from: It Ain't Half Hot Mum - Complete Series One to Four [DVD] (DVD)
I saw most of the series when shown on TV back in the 70's. Whatching them again, (several episodes I missed),brought back all the fun and
real comedy which had both myself and my wife howling with laughter. At this price get this.
