Robin's nest complete series dvd
Have waited a long time for those fabulous old British sitcoms to be released!
Well worth the wait, however get annoyed when series are release one by one then eventually the box sets are released and much cheaper. E.g. I have series 1 and 2 of Robin's Nest but could not get the rest.Eventually managed to get the full set from Amazon (thank you Amazon) and look forwards to other re-released 'oldies'.
Any chance series 2 of 'Next Of Kin" will be released?

This is a very funny comedy series that was a spin off from another series called Man about the House. That series featured the character Robin Tripp. The series had been very successful and when it ended two new spin off series were created. One was George and Mildred and the other was Robins Nest. Fresh from the successful Man about the house comedy series, Robin Tripp has now left his two female flatmates and teamed up with his live in lover Vicky Nicholls. Vicky is an air hostess. The pair live in their own flat in Fulham London above a bistro called Robins Nest.
Also in this show there is the character of Albert Riddle who is a one arm washer up and helper that works for the bistro. He is a funny character who is an Irish ex con with plenty of blarney.
Everything seems to be going well, but then there is also the character of father to Vicky, James Nicholls who is a disapproving figure. He is also a rather over enthusiastic "sleeping partner" in the business at the Bistro.
Meanwhile mother of Vicky, Marion, is more sympathetic to her daughter and the life she has with long haired cook Robin.
Tensions ease when Robin and Vicky get married and have twins.
Sir Richard O`Sullivan also wrote the synthesizer theme music. This DVD set contains the complete series and the packaging is nicely presented. But there are no subtitles for other languages or the hard of hearing.
There are some very good episodes throughout the series and generally it is a gentle comedy with a good slice of farce.

Lovely stuff this... Robins nest was fun to watch the first time round. Just watched the whole dvd, and before that watched Man about the house.. the dvd pre Robins nest. They don't make series like this any more.

worth every penny. having only been really young when first aired, i didn't remember much.Its funny to watch the progress of Robin and Vicky building up the Bistro, then through marriage and later parenthood.. Stars Richard Osullivan as Robin, Tessa Wyatt as Vicky and Tony Britton as Vicky's father Mr Nicholls. And not forgetting David Kelly as one armed dish washer Albert Riddle who steals the show for me. contains all 6 series and the 2 christmas specials

As she remembered the original TV Series, and she is still enjoying it now as then, but more to the point, our 15 year old is enjoying it as well, and finds it just as funny as his mother does. Well worth the cost for a full set of DVDs, and extremely good viewing.

This great seventies series should be watched by anyone with a penchant for funny non- pc banter, flares and jokes about chinamen with names such as One Hung Lo!!!!
Featuring the great,but now sadly almost forgotten, Richard O'Sullivan and Tessa wyatt,the series follows the travails of running a bijou restaurant in trendy seventies London.
Complete with sexual innuendo of the period etc it will take you back to those halcyon days when one could call a spade a spade without causing a race riot.
