5.0 out of 5 stars The Best DVD Set Of My Life, 3 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Worst Week Of My Life : Complete BBC Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Whilst I fell in love with Sarah Alexander the first time I saw her on television I had not seen one episode of this series until I stumbled on ten minutes of one on a cable TV repeat. I had to buy the DVD and ended up buying this collection from Amazon. It is the best dvd set I have bought. Whilst our hapless hero encounters more ridiculous situations than anyone would in real life, each one is simply a tremendously funny observation of life at its most ridiculous. It is almost 'Frank Spencer' although our hero has a higher intelligence and the humour is less 'slapstick'. I have no doubt that every viewer can identify many if not all characters as 'people they know'. That makes the humour all the more believable.
The casting is wonderful. Ben miller is deservedly flavour of the month; Sarah Alexander is fast becoming, if not there already, one of our best 'sitcom' comedians (certainly the most attractive) and not one member of the cast could be improved on.
I laughed and you will laugh from start to finish. You will predict much of what happens but it will still be extremely funny. This set is thoroughly recommended and will be one of the best buys you will make.
