2.0 out of 5 stars Last Review Update, 15 Mar 2006
This review is from: Treacle People [DVD] (DVD)
I am writing this second review to point out a few facts firstly the review by Sticky was written, it seems, by the DVD producers just two days after mine so that anyone who read my review, doubtless after theirs, would take no notice of the points that I made. If the DVD producers really were concerned with the public then don't you think they would have mentioned the fact that there are double the episodes on the disc before it was even released, just to make it clear. No, they wait until someone points out that three episodes is not good enough before telling the consumer that there are actually six episodes on the disc, obviously they were worried that my review would cause people to boycott their product. My review, though, still stands, to release six ten minute episodes of a wonderful 27 episode series (that includes the Christmas special) is still not good enough they should have released the entire first series of 13 episodes. Others classic shows were released in this way, namely Charlie Chalk (as I mentioned before) but also other releases such as Bucky O'Hare, The Morph Files, The Shoe People, Bagpuss, Mr Benn, The Clangers all of these classics were released in series form. And that's just the ones I can name of the top of my head.
I doubt that what I had to say here will be passed by Amazon but if it is then I have one last thing to point out, the DVD companies can get away with terrible releases because no one ever stands up and says 'that's not good enough'. Maybe it's fear of being ridiculed or being shouted down by the big boys (as in this case) but I think we should stand up for our rights as consumers. All I am striving for is the hope that the consumer should get what they deserve ‘a good honest release’, not just with this DVD but others like it. After all there are many other TV shows and Films that either hasn’t been released yet or hasn’t been done justice in its release. I hope that Amazon will print this, and I hope that you, the readers, help, as fellow consumers, demand better releases in the future and help stand up for our right to be treated fairly and taken seriously. Thanks for reading my review and Thanks to Amazon for printing it.

I agree completely, I would love to see the whole first series on dvd together, in fact I came on here hoping to find it to buy! This programme is hilarious and great for adults and children alike.
