5.0 out of 5 stars FUNNY, 16 Mar. 2004

This review is from: Duty Free: The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
Duty Free belongs in the old school of British comedy. This show topped the reatings when first shown in 1984 and was repeated pretty often during the mid 80`s. The 3 dvds..disc 1 has the first series set during the first week. The acting is exceptional, Keith Barron is excellant as David, recently made redundant and living a lie with Linda the well to do English woman married to Robert who doesn`t seem to notice her. The revelation is Gwen Taylor as Amy who lights up the screen in all her scenes and gets the best lines. (TO A BULLFIGHTER-"YOU`RE JUST A HITMAN FOR FREY BENTOS")
Gwen Taylors acting as she witnesses losing her husband to Linda takes this above most other comedy performances.From the same writer as `Rising Damp, the 2nd series on disc 2 features the second week and is just as funny. Whilst disc 3 features the return the year after and the first two episode are classic British farce. There is also the episode featuring Judith Charmers which is brilliant.Also on disc 3 is the 1986 special `A DUTY FREE CHRISTMAS` which works well on film and without an audience you see the chemistry between the 4 stars...not forgetting Carlos the waiter. Roberts remarks about Germans and references to Pasatas may date this..after all it`s 20 years since series 1 but it is still classic, funny British comedy.
