5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious comedy., 7 Dec 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Sickness & In Health - The Christmas Specials [DVD] (DVD)
I had only ever seen clips from these shows, but 'In Sickness' and its predecessor 'Till Death Us Do Part' really are a hilarious look at one of the dodgier aspects of human nature. Alf Garnett is an all-time classic comedy creation - we've all known people like him, and we can all laugh at his rantings. This DVD contains the five Christmas specials from 'In Sickness and in Health'. They contain some all-time great moments - Alf Garnett as a department store Santa, and the final Christmas special has to be the most hilarious one as a wedding ends in chaos. The leading character is superbly portrayed, the writing is always top-notch and the supporting actors are all great (I was amazed to see the actor who I remember as playing PC Haynes, one of The Bill's hardmen, now playing Garnett's camp home-help). :0)

There is a notion that this show is racist, but anyone who has actually watched it can see it's Alf Garnett who's the figure of fun, just like Basil Fawlty. So buy this and the other DVDs in this series before they're withdrawn by the designer-suited unelected politically-correct control-freaks who seem to think they know what's best for everyone else.
