3.0 out of 5 stars Good for nostalgia, 29 Jan. 2013

This review is from: Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em - Series 1-3 + Christmas Specials [DVD] [1973] (DVD)
Even though I was born after these were originally made in the mid seventies, I remember watching the repeats on TV as a child and always laughing out loud at Frank Spencer. These are fond memories and this set is worth having for that reason.

However my memories are possibly a little rose tinted, the comedy here is basic and predictable, there are some innuendos here and there which are amusing. Overall though in our current day and age this doesn't really entertain like it did "back then". It's not particularly witty or clever, though hats off to Michael Crawford for performing all of his own stunts!

This will always be a 'classic' and can be appreciated by those who see it for what it is, just don't buy this if you have never seen it expecting to be entertained for hours splitting your sides with laughter. It's good for reliving fond memories of childhood or the 70's if you we're there, but that's about it.
