5.0 out of 5 stars Faulty Disc (all 3 copies)! (GREAT Series though)!, 29 Mar 2013
This review is from: Blandings - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I have given 5 Stars for the actual show, but would only give the Disc 1 star due to all of them being faulty and lacking extras, (outtakes would have been interesting and probably highly amusing.

I've purchased 3 copies of this DVD now and every one has exactly the same FAULT, (so obviously the whole production run is faulty); when selecting the Play All option in the main menu the First episode gets around 8 & a half minutes in and then JUMPS back to the start, there is no way past this to watch the whole series back to back. The only way around is to keep going into the menus to play each episode individually,(which is bit of a pain when you simply want to watch the whole lot without fiddling around with the remote every 28 mins when it skips back to the menu - after all the entire series is under 3 hours)!

As for the series: EXCELLENT and very, very funny IF you have a suitable sense of humour; a lot of people will not like this but I personally loved it! I've never read PG Wodehouse and still have no intention of doing so; I simply watched and enjoyed this show as a high quality, hilarious Period Comedy. The cast is magnificent, especially Timothy Spall who delivers another memorable performance in the lead roll. There are lots of guest stars, including a villainous David Walliams in fine form.

I thought this was shown a bit too early on Sundays and imagine the BBC would have got a bigger audience with a later spot. I really HOPE they make a second series!
