5.0 out of 5 stars I don't believe it!!! Over 1,200 hrs of Britains funniest comedy, 23 Feb 2011
This review is from: One Foot in the Grave Complete Series 1 - 6 Plus Christmas Specials Box Set [DVD] [1990] (DVD)
Sometime's there's nothing funnier than other peoples misfortune (just watch you've been framed for proof) and the writers of this comedy knew that. However, you can't help but feel for poor old Victor.

Every episode of this series is packed with original and outrageous scenarios and ideas, not to mention great performances.

The scripts are tight, the characters brilliant and I can't help but notice that everyday, the more junk mail I get, the more market research phone calls I get, and the more automated phone services I have to deal with, the more and more like Victor I become.

One Foot In The Grave lets us laugh at everything that annoys us in life about the idiots we're forced to deal with on a daily basis, and also, find warmth in the fact that it could always be a lot worse.

The great thing about every episode of these is that, just when you think it can't get any worse for Mr. Meldrew, it does. And in some brilliantly bizarre way that's pushed to its extreme for full comic affect.

This remains one of the few TV series that has me laughing so hard no sound comes out and I find it hard to breath. To sum up - easily one of the best British comedies packed full of memorable scenes and scenarios... if you haven't seen it, well... I don't believe it.
