This is now a classic British comedy and this is one of the better series. There are fourteen episodes including a Christmas edition at the end. This was very long for a comedy series back in the 1970s and still is a long run of episodes even today.
There are some good episodes with some good farcical situations. For example
Stan gets mixed up with babies as a nursery is set up at the depot in episode one. In another episode he has to be best man at the wedding of the inspector`s neice. Other episodes see everyone exposed to the flu, a nurse for the depot comes to live at the Butlers, Stan does his back in and has to wear a surgical corset, The butlers get a new colour TV, Jack becomes an inspector, Arthur gets a wig to impress a new clippie on the bus and there is Boxing Day problems for Arthur.
These are just some of the funny situations the regular characters get into.
One thing about this series that is of note is that actors Bob Grant (Jack) and Stephen Lewis (Blakey) wrote two of the episodes. The rest of the episodes are written by Ronald Wolfe and Ronald Chesney.
Generally I don't think this series is as good as either series three or four but it is still worth watching and has plenty of entertainment.
Stan Butler is a driver for a London bus company. He works with conductor Jack, his mate. They work the number 11 bus to the cemetery gates. Stan and Jack are always trying to dodge their Inspector Blake (Blakey) who is always trying to catch them up to no good.
Stan lives with his widowed mother, and a dowdy sister Olive and her husband Arthur.Read more ›
Some of the comedies nowadays is very good. But! on the buses and the films on the buses, mutiny on the buses and holiday on the buses was pure gems.
i have started to collect the 7 series of stan and co. i just need series five and series seven and then i'm happy. THANK YOU Stan,jack and co for FANTASTIC laughs and memories. THANK YOU AMAZON for having the series and the 3 films.
And for those that like a bit of nostalgia, when you press play on your episode, and the LWT idents starts, just slowly rewind to find a little extra, i won't spoil the suprise, but, it's something i loved.
