Ignore the poor UK DVD releases, Benny gets the DVDs he deserves in the USA,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Benny Hill Set 1: Naughty Years - Comp & Unadult [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Its always been a well known fact that Benny Hill was huge around the world, especially in America and despite having a loyal fanbase here in the UK was treat shabbily by those in charge of Thames towards the end of his career. The shabby treatment continues with the pitiful dvd releases we have here in the UK, the Benny Hill annuals which have a SELECTION of episodes from each series on them.
My advice is go for these superb American sets which are actually quite cheap and little more then the UK dvds. Each one covers a few years in Bennys career and includes FULL episodes and complete series, a joy for Benny fans. There are 6 sets in total to collect covering his 70s and 80s work for Thames. I watched the last episode of the last series (1989) and was amazed at how versatile, innventive and funny Benny still was in his twilight years and it beggars the question WHY Thames had to bow to the politically correct left wing comedians who slated Benny and agree it was time to end his show, crazy.
