This review is from: Carry On - The Ultimate Collection [DVD] (DVD)As a Canadian, who has seen many of the Carry On series over the years on TV and was able to buy only a set of twelve for region 1, I was so happy to see this complete series offered. I even bought a DVD player that would play region 2 format just so I could see all of these classics. There may be some sense to having multiple regions for new releases, but why are classics like these region controlled? The packaging is a good news/bad news kind of deal. Instead of thirty separate cases, they come in three cases that hold ten discs each, thus saving space on your shelf. However, the cases are rather flimsy and there is no liner notes or any details about the discs other than the title. The extras are not identified so if you were looking for something particular, you'd have to check out all 30 discs to find it.
I haven't watched them all yet but I was pleased with the quality of the transfer and my wife and I look forward to indulging ourselves as we watch the whole series, including the TV series that are included as extras on some of the discs.
Of course these films are bawdy nonsense and cheap music hall jokes, but they are addictive fun.
