Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Very Best of They Think It's All Over [DVD] (DVD)
I was looking to see if any of the series were on DVD, but all their was was this. I was reluctant to buy a "best of" style compilation, but its one of the funniest dvd's you can get IMO. It also really highlights just how funny the show was. I watched most of the earlier series, and see this DVD reminded me of how good it was. From the early days of Lee Hurst to the later Jonathan Ross, its really funny, hysterical in places. I suppose my only compaint is that it should have been a 2 DVD release with more on it, as i do remember a series finale which involved a sports day thing shot outside the studio, but thats not on here. What is is some of the classic exchanges; Chris Eubank, David Gower and various Filipino references, a whole section on Posh and Becks, Rory as scathing as ever, and the classic final quick fire questions round where in one show they had to impersonate the sportsman, and Lee Hurst just took it it the max ! (who can forget Gladstone Small and Emlyn Hughes !). The series finale with the decider being taken by Gary Linekar's book of football facts is here, plus some of the more outrageous Feel The Sportsman rounds (it got more elaborate as the series went on i think) and loads more. The scene i rememeber most is the Feel The Sportsman round with two fat "gut" fighting guys who came on, accompanyed by their gorgeous stunningly endowed assistant who proceeded to oil their bellies .. whist Gary groped around feeling these hairy guys, Rory quicky discovered the assistant, and made the most of it Rory style ! Great DVD, well worth it - 90 mins of pure comedy gold.
