5.0 out of 5 stars An under-rated gem of a series, 19 Jun. 2004
This review is from: Ever Decreasing Circles: The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
This series tends to get forgotten about, mainly being overshadowed by The Good Life - same writers, same lead actor. However, I think as a parody of suburban life in England and also as a comedic study of someone who is obsessive, it can't be beaten.
The characters are all very well rounded and the actors playing them are very good, particularly Richard Briers as Martin, Peter Egan as the suave sophisticated neighbour who flirts with Martin's wife Ann, and the dotty and dim Howard and Hilda.
Some jokes are overplayed, and while some episodes may not cover partcularly sophisticated plotlines, the acting and the spirit really raise this to a higher level of quality than people seem to remember.
The quality of the episode of the DVD are excellent, with fantastic pictures and sound. Also, the extras are well worth a look - especially the Did You See feature on Series Four.
