5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent TV Series!
A fantastic tv series really well made and well presented by Rory McGrath featuring many interesting stories about the Lake District and the people (and visitors) who live here.A great account of one of the worlds true beauty spots.And at a total bargain price!

2.0 out of 5 stars The Lakes
I found this DVD to be very disappointing, having spent many holidays in the lake district, I was looking forward to watching this series, but the stories were repeated time after time, the scenery was stunning, and the stories of the people who live there were good, if you dont mind seeing the same thing over and over then it may be of interest to you.

This review is from: The Lakes: Series 1 [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
I found this DVD to be very disappointing, having spent many holidays in the lake district, I was looking forward to watching this series, but the stories were repeated time after time, the scenery was stunning, and the stories of the people who live there were good, if you dont mind seeing the same thing over and over then it may be of interest to you. This series could have been covered in half the time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Ghastly, 5 April 2012
This review is from: The Lakes: Series 1 [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
I hate having to write a bad review about anything but this trite programme deserves nothing more. Pity poor Rory McGrath who clearly is uncomfortable with the material he has to present and tries to do so in an deadpan way. There is so much in the Lake District that is unique and outstanding, all of which is bypassed in this series. Instead it concentrates on some banal and totally unimpressive characters (if you can use that term to describe people with no character at all) that are revisited week after week.
I do have to admit that at first I though the series was mocking these absurdly boring people but no, it was done ver much tongue out of cheek. It is memorable only for the continued featuring of some homoerotic pairing of a rich landowner and his forelock tugging serf as he indulges in a long distance swim. Utterly bizarre on every level. What is even stranger is that there was a second series.

This review is from: The Lakes: Series 1 [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
I found this DVD a fabulous insight into life in the Lake District. After watching the programme on TV I felt compelled to go out and buy this DVD, I know I speak for all of my friends when I say we thoroughly enjoyed this series and found the characters who live and work there thoroughly enjoyable and fun to watch.
