A Joyful Reunion
on 27 April 2013
I first watched this series many years ago,and when I found there was a boxed set available on Amazon,I decided to treat myself. I must admit that I was somewhat apprehensive;would the format have dated? had my fond memories been influenced by hazy nostalgia? had I changed? become world weary? I need not have bothered with such qualms,because from the opening sequence of 'Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em' I simply curled up with unbridled laughter,which continued until the very end of the boxed set.
The sheer brilliance of the writing,coupled with the inescapable daredevilness of Michael Crawford beggers belief!!!I simply cannot see this series ever being equalled,either for supreme comedy or for thrills,and one thing for sure: it is as fresh and vibrant as the day it was first shown. So my advice is:if you want to see ageless entertainment,then treat yourself to this very reasonably priced boxed set. It really is that good.
