30Something - rolling back the years!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thirtysomething: Complete Third Season [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I guess that you need to have been around when this drama was originally aired (in the very late 80's) to really appreciate it being available on DVD, but if you are looking for a drama series about life in your thirties and have not seen it before then you could do worse than to give it a look. Yes, it is a U.S drama, with some references which won't mean anything to U.K audiences, but there is lot of it that is still relevant today. Families, jobs, careers, relationships etc. all of them get examined here. If you can, watch the 4 series in order, as they do build on the previous one. At times it gets a little bit self obsessed, but hey! that's how we were back then - and no apologies!! Overall, this was a great series, yes, the odd episode failed to deliver, but I have never come across any drama series that did not have the odd hiccup. At least give season 1 a go, even if you have to buy it second hand. Don't be fooled by some of the offers on EBay though, for the complete 4 seasons, they are copies made from the original VHS video tapes and are not brilliant quality.
