Not the best that Brookside had to offer,
This review is from: Brookside - Most Memorable Moments (30th Anniversary Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
Marvellous as it really Really is to see Brookside on any format at all!
I do have to say though
What a strange compilation of episodes?
The 80's (brookies hey day) are merely footnoted here!.
And there's a plethora of fantastc story arcs etc from the 80's era, and not enough here!
A wee bit jimmy corkhillcentric era to me, but itl do!
Although the poultry amount of early eps from the 82-86 period here are great, it needs more eps from the 80s to make it a much more properly realized compilation, as it is majorly gappy.
I must add, i would very much like to see the show released from the start! And maybe do what they do with corrie, and do eras even?
The absolute best has been missed here, but it is time brookie was on dvd! Maybe this is the start of other releases?, who knows? But early brookie hasnt seen the light of day since granada plus showed it back 1995, and it'd be just great to see.
I'm hopeful as are many others, that this shall happen, viva la 1982-1989.

too many early episoes and not enough later episodes where brookside got really amazing.i am sick of seeing the first episode.released on vhs and many fan made dvds especially from vhs transfers and other media and the trevor body being discovered,i own that about 3 times already its so boring now.its always the same old rubbish and all the best episodes get ignored.what about bar brookie explosion the best single episode ever, max and susanna storylines like falling down the stairs, or more of the 2002 seige the best storyline ever on any show.the full week should be included. why there has to be only 16 episode in the first place ill never know. there should be 21 discs with a disc for every year,even then it wouldnt be near enough to come close to showing the best storylines.especially when rubbish like grange hill get complete series releases
