5.0 out of 5 stars The lost classic ...
'The Big Knights' is one of my favourite series and I'm 45 years old. It was first transmitted in December/January of 1999/2000 on BBC1, got a 50% of the series VHS release and then vanished.
The series tells the story of the two largest and bravest (ie most reckless) knights of a bizarre country called Borovia that is clearly in the late 20th Century but only just...

3.0 out of 5 stars The Big Knights - an episode where the Big Knights try to take on some DVD formatting problems!
The Big Knights is a fantastic series, one of the best ever cartoon series in my opinion! Loved it since watching it with my little daughter round about the year 2000. If I was rating the actual content then it would get 5 stars, as would Amazon for their service. However, the DVD video disc I bought wouldn't play in either of my two DVD players. The screen stayed...

They are very brilliant. I am a grown up, but love to watch 'The Big Knights' they are so well animated and so original, and of course the voices of Brian Blessed and the other fellow are iconic.

5.0 out of 5 stars I,ve not seen the dvd!, 27 Nov 2013
This review is from: The Big Knights [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
...but I saw it on TV all those years ago and fell in love with it. Years later I bought the video.... But where was the vampire episode? My favorite! Tonight I order the DVD. For me, but more importantly for my children (14, 12 and 10). They deserve to see this! We all deserve to see this! Buy this, love this, then write to the BBC, your MP, Chris Evans, anyone, WE WANT MORE!

If you're fed up with all the American rubbish that's out there, give this shot.

A bit cynical in places, but works brilliantly for adults as well as children !

I had only seen these on transatlantic flights, so I bought them knowing they were Region 2 while I live in Region 1, unluckily our standard DVD players won't handle them :-( I will find a way given time though, they are worth it :-)

Hilarious Big Knights in High Definition! What's not to love?
It was nice to have the DVD included with the Bluray.

5.0 out of 5 stars BD is actually Widescreen, 19 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Big Knights [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
A couple of corrections for folks who may be looking at the back of the box...

The box states that the BD is produced in 4:3 but it is in fact widescreen 1080p. In addition, the episodes on the BD are in a different order form the back of the box. They are all there, of course, just not in the printed order.

The theme tune is damned infectious!

5.0 out of 5 stars A big hit..., 27 Feb 2012
This review is from: The Big Knights [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The Big Knights are just brilliant with a wit for both young and old. It is such a shame so few were made as they are a fabulous testament to British humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compulsive viewing, 5 Dec 2011
This review is from: The Big Knights [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I live in Australia and became addicted to the Big Knights many years ago. I have waited and waited for the DVD and it was definitely worth waiting for. My sons and I have just laughed and laughed since it arrived - it's just classic good natured and enthusiastic humour. Nothing pretentious, no pretending to be for kids with so much implicit adult humour- The Big Knights are just good fun for everyone.
