Wolfie was the leader of the urban guerilla group the Tooting Popular Front who were just waiting for the right moment to storm to power.
The only problems being Wolfie was unemployed and the TPF only numbered three others ,Ken - an apprentice Buddist, Speed - a hooligan shoplifter and Tucker - a waiter with a Cowboy fixation.
Wolfie's hardest job was trying to avoid marriage to Shirley and avoiding upseting Harry Fenning and his minders, Tootings answer to Al Capone.
Like most sitcoms the episodes get better as the series progresses with the first couple of episodes setting the scene and getting you used to the characters.
The boxset features the pilot episode, which is basically the same as episode 1 but with a diffrent actor as Charlie and some diffrent dialogue, and the Christmas special "A Story For Christmas' which has never been repeated on TV.
The episodes are
Roof Over My Head - (Pilot Episode)
Crocodile Tears - How can Wolfie explain to Shirley That Urban Guerrilla's don't get engaged.
Guess Who's Coming To Dinner - Wolfie can't put off the terrible day any longer, meeting Shirley's family.
Abide With Me - Wolfie and Ken are evicted but will Charlie Johnson take the revolution into his own Home.
The Weekend - Ken plans a dirty weekend with Desiree, the topless Go-Go dancer at the Vigilante pub.Trouble is she's going out with Speed.
The Hostage - Wolfies election hopes are dashed but he has a plan, to kidnap David West the M.P. who beat him.Read more ›
The principal emphasise of the comedy to a large degree is political as it is based on the movement of a group campaigning against their rights. The way it is approached end up in hilarious outcomes, as the point is they are not clever enough and competent to campaign. That is the real beauty of the comedy. This is gives you a real flavour of what to expect and you will be laughing like anything.
Citizen Smith features 13 brilliant episodes in three discs. The packaging to the DVD is attractively done, with a picture featuring the main character in his trademark cap and jacket. Citizen Smith has all the features to promote its status as a great comedy, which is a great script, funny characters and well structured stories.
I like to finish my review with a quote "Power to great comedy". If you love great comedy to really enjoy, watch Citizen Smith series 1 and 2 to get a real feel what the real power of comedy can do for viewers.
If you haven't seen it before you'll need to persevere beyond the first 3 episodes as it takes a while to warm up. The pilot is very static and drawn out. And the third episode, which was originally to be the pilot episode of a completely different set-up to a series - essentially a flat-sharing sitcom - has a different feel to the rest of the episodes. But once the series gets going and the formula settles down it provides regular fun and laughs, even if Wolfie's tight trousers are very painful to look at!
to watch either at weekends or when theres not much on the box.compared to whats on sky these days i would rather watch this than the rubbish thats on sky.
I was amazed to find out that it only ran 4 years and only 30 episodes for some reason to me it seemed to be on longer.
I remember all those years ago how disapointed i was when the show finaly stopped and not long after that robert lyndsay was in a new series called seconds out which flopped.
Anyway because of Citizen smith i tried to follow lyndsays career and try to watch most things hes ever been in . for example (Get some in) which was before C.S then after seconds out i think he went back to stage work and serious acting and i had not seen much of him until the Horatio hornblower series.
Now i hear that hes back to his sitcom roots with another popular show on TV now but i have not had the honor to see just yet.
Again great service from Amazon and ive just ordered series 3-4 of citizen smith .
Great nostalgic TV that brings back so many memories and the precursor of Only Fools and Horses for which i have all the series of.
