4.0 out of 5 stars Whenever someone dies, the reviews pile in...
The sad, unexpected death of Rik Mayall has prompted me to do a short review of this DVD which I bought nearly ten years ago when it first came out thanks to old-TV-everyone-else-seems-to-have-forgotten specialists Netwerk.

Although another reviewer has, quite rightly, made the connection that these films were almost like (and I'm paraphrasing here) a 'Comic...

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but patchy...
These 50-odd minute plays provide a wide range of material for Rik Mayall to get his teeth into, the the results are (perhaps predictably) rather mixed.

'Micky Love' is in a class of it's own here, and is easily the best of all six plays, matching an incredible script with the vivid title character, an over the hill northern light entertainer heading for a...

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Miss Out, 6 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rik Mayall Presents: The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this DVD after seeing one episode - the hilarious "Dancing Queen" - on TV as a tribute to Rik Mayall following his untimely death. I was never a fan of Bottom or The Young Ones but I must admit that this DVD set is excellent. Each of the 6 stories are very different and Mayall and his supporting cast are excellent in each one.

I'm surprised that I've never seen any of these episodes repeated on SKY and I consider this set to be a bargain for 12. Dancing Queen is worth the price on its own, but 6 great stories make this a bargain. My only advice is buy it now and enjoy hours of great comedy

3.0 out of 5 stars Memories are better than the DVD, 3 July 2014
This review is from: Rik Mayall Presents: The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
I am a fan of Rik and Ade`s work. However this is Rik on his own. Dancing Queen was shown as a tribute recently, and although it had some 'big names' in the cast, these were in the early stages of their careers, the plot was predictable, cliche`d, and the visual quality was made to look dated on modern HD equipment. I have seen Rik play 'straight' parts several times on screen and stage, he usually managed to make a 'Rik-ism' somewhere in the performance , Here he adds very little to a rather lame production, his role could easily be played by anyone, I didn`t remember this series before the tribute, and I think that was possibly for the best.

I missed this great Rik Mayall TV series when it was first shown! After the sad death of Rik, I saw an episode called Dancing Queen on ITV as a tribute to Rik & I thought it was very good &that I must try & get all six episodes! It was hard to find & then I found it on Network DVD'S & ordered it straight from Rarewaves UK as I have used them before & a great service & price! All the episodes a really good & a great star-studded cast including Amanda Donohoe, Helena Bonham Carter, Nick Hancock and Lee Evans just to name a few! The Episodes Comprise: 1. Micky Love (1993) 2. Briefest Encounter (1993) 3. Dancing (1993) 4. The Big One (1995) 5. Dirty Old Town (1995) 6. Clair De Lune (1995). The Complete Series on a 2-DVD Set! Great quality picture & sound on a six episodes! If you love Rik, then this is a must buy! :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Not disappointed, 18 May 2014

This review is from: Rik Mayall Presents: The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
I remember seeing this on it's original airing back in the '90s. Loved Dancing Queen and it stuck in my memory over the years.
Having re-watched it,have to say it still holds up after all these years.
Dancing Queen was the best of the 6 episodes but all were good and thoroughly enjoyed re-watching them all again.
Timeless classics
