4.0 out of 5 stars "I can't stand around chatting all day, I've got men to lay off..."
Bradley Hardacre is determined that the Lancashire town of Utterley shall not fall victim to the Great Depression. This is because he owns it - from the cottage hospital (the former cottage workhouse where he grew up on a diet of kicks and gruel) to the crutch factory where he first began to master the dark arts of capitalism and, finally, to the mine, the mill and the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Final let-down
I was really enjoying this series with it's brilliant scripts and the great Timothy West in his element. That has all been covered by other reviewers. However, towards the end of the second series I felt that it was starting to slip and that the third series was (apart from a few good lines) absolutely woeful. On that basis I certainly cannot understand how it gets so...

This great series is all here, even the much weaker final series - watch out for the other 'complete' box set which misses it out.

The price is great for what you get - one of the best TV comedies ever made.

It had been so long since i had seen this program that i thought that it was lost forever. I sent an e-mail to ITV who reccomended Amazon so i looked and to my surprise there it was, so i bought it.
I was not dissappointed the series is pure clever witty comedy something that is sadly lacking nowadays. One of the best buys i have made and in the future i will check with Amazon if there is anything that i cannot find.

5.0 out of 5 stars West at his best, 1 Sept. 2013

I'm so glad I bought this. It has all the best black humour as well as some silly bits, but it's the details that leave me coming back for more. The joke of the the sons Austin, Morris and Bentley has been noted, but I took me a couple of weeks to cotton on to the joke of Morris' bear Hesketh (the mascot of Hesketh Racing who James Hunt won his first GP for was a teddy bear).

No additional bits, but who cares when the original is so good.

Is it really thirty years since this was on our television screens? Brilliantly written and superbly cast, Brass has long been one of my all-time television favourites and the discovery that it was available on DVD made my day. Although Timothy West is clearly the leading character, the "star", Brass owes much of its humour to a very strong cast of actors, able to portray and caricature life in a nothern mill town in an age gone by. This was a very funny series when it was first shown and it still is - and it still makes me laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brideshead Revisited meets Lady Chatterley's Lover, 18 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Brass - The Complete Series [DVD] [1983] (DVD)
An hilarious series never repeated as far as I remember. Agnes laboriously putting peas back into their pods reminiscent of women workers placing wooden pips in ersatz strawberry jam. An excellent cast and well worth watching.

I found this series very amusing. Must admit that I didn't see it when it came round first but well worth looking at.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funnier Than I Remembered, 11 Mar. 2012

This review is from: Brass - The Complete Series [DVD] [1983] (DVD)
Brass is funnier if you know a bit of history I think. It's set in the 1930s and has references to the Kennedy family when Joe was American Ambassador. The scientist Alexander Fleming (he discovered penicillin in a dish of mould) gets fired by Bradley Hardacre because his corner of the lab is filthy. 'Look at the mould in this saucer - you could grow tomatoes on that!' I watch every episode twice as jokes get missed first time round.

Watching this brought back great memories. Timothy West is amazing,Would love to see some outakes from Brass'shame there are non on the disc. I wonder how they manage to keep straight faces during the overacting that goes off.
