5.0 out of 5 stars Its the sum not the individual parts.., 1 Mar 2007
This review is from: The Likely Lads Collection (6 Disc BBC Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
Yes if you are a total completest then there are some omissions her but lets not forget about what we are reviewing? - ie comedy gold.

The Likely Lads was a hit British sitcom created and written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais. Twenty episodes were shown in all, over three series, by the BBC between December 1964 and July 1966. However, not all of these shows have survived.

The show followed the close friendship of two working-class young men, Terry Collier (James Bolam) and Bob Ferris (Rodney Bewes), in the northeast of England in the mid 1960s. It has been confimed several times on various documentaries that the programme was not 100% set in its regular filiming location of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, but 'around there'. It is generally and logically accepted as a very 'Newcastle' programme however.

This was a great show for men, much better than the rather oafish and obvious Men behaving badly. I see Likely Lads are more akin to The Office in many respects. never mind about missing the odd ep and treat yourself to some classic proper British sitcom g o l d.
