3.0 out of 5 stars tip of the iceberg, 12 Feb 2005
This review is from: Kenny Everett - The Complete Naughty Bits! [DVD] (DVD)
Kenny Everett's legacy really is rather ill-served at the moment -
as other reviewers have noted, this DVD is simply a re-package re-issue of two old VHS compilations of the Thames TV "Kenny Everett Video Show".
Although there's plenty to chuckle at, even the odd belly laugh,
you can't help feeling the whole thing has been hacked and edited to death - you miss the surreal flow and momentum of an individual episode of the show - on the DVD, the comic pace is skewed somewhat, the running gags no longer run, the characters don't develop from week to week.
And there's no way this is all the BEST material, even from the 1970s Thames TV show (and of course, there's oodles of 80s stuff from the BBC's "Kenny Everett Television Show" that needs to be seen as well)
For a man who was an indisputable televisual genius, and considering some of the other TV tat which has been lavished with DVD box sets, it really is a crying shame that more of Kenny's material isn't available.
We need a multidisc box set of the Kenny Everett Video show, and another of the Kenny Everett Television Show! Anyone who disagrees, I say round 'em up! Put 'em in a field! And BOMB THE B*STARDS!!!!!

Couldn't agree more, Kenny was a total comedy genius and we desperately need his shows to be transferred to DVD or could Blu-Ray help by storing a lot of standard definition shows on one disc?
