Not so Manificent..,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Magnificent Evans [DVD] (DVD)
I can't think what made Ronnie Barker make this series although its not THAT bad. I could sort of remember it when it first aired on TV years ago and bearing in mind its written by Roy Clarke, the humour is a bit subdued as opposed to laugh out loud - but don't be put off as there are some smashing set pieces and in saying that, when it IS funny, its a cracker!. I can't really point to what it is that makes it slightly 'not right' as its got a star, a good writer and in theory, should have run and run but..it didn't. DO see it and form your own conclusion as its cheap enough now and as I say, it has its moments - GOOD moments.
