Product Description

Product Description

Produced by the team who brought you Smack the Pony, Green Wing is more concerned with the antics of its dysfunctional characters than with actual medical issues. It combines the cream of British comedy actors, inventive use of editing--in which sequences are often sped up and slowed down--and an offbeat sense of humour, to create an unusual and imaginative comedy.

Synopsis

Proving that there is more to hospitals than just disinfectant and dysentery, Green Wing takes an altogether unconventional view of the health service. "Green Wing - Series 1" follows the exploits of Dr. Caroline Todd (Tamsin Greig) and her hilarious encounters with a number of eccentric co-workers. The assortment of bizarre characters she meets includes: Guy Secretan (Stephen Mangan), the smooth talking part-Swiss anaesthetist and all-round misogynist; Dr. Alan Statham (Mark Heap), possibly one of the kinkiest doctors on the ward and a man whose affliction is to think out loud (something that the cheeky intern Boyce likes to exploit quite frequently); the dashing but aloof Dr. 'Mac' Macartney (Julian Rhind-Tutt), whom Caroline may or may not have a crush on; Joanna Clore (Pippa Heywood), the moody, age-obsessed HR Director; Sue White (Michelle Gomez), the sociopathic staff relations counsellor; the hapless junior doctor Martin Dear (Karl Theobold); and the irritatingly perfect Dr. Angela Hunter (Sarah Alexander). In Series 2, Dr. Todd and her crew of quirky co-workers return to face the unenviable task of clearing up the mess they left behind at the end of series one.

For any fan of Green wing having every episode is obviously a must and this Box set does give you this, but if you are thinking of buying this collector's edition the 8th bonus disc is a bit of a let down.
It does contain unseen material namely extra deleted scenes and a so called documentary which although entertaining, only lasts 15mins and I feel it could and should have been longer to give a true fan what they deserve!
If you can get this 8 disc collectors edition for about the same price as the other separate series 1 & 2 plus special together, then it is worth buying but don't spend too much extra as the 8th bonus disc isn't worth it.

For me, this is the most amazing programme I have come across. The theme tune is so catchy that I find myself humming it. The cast is sublime. The scripts are written with such genius; they capture the weird and wonderful British humour that made Red Dwarf/Black Books/Monty Python (to name but a few)such a roaring success. It saddens me that this never really had the level exposure and acclaim it deserved.

This is not everybody's sense of humour, but it is very worth watching. The arrogance of the medical profession, the insanity associated with working in the NHS are all portrayed in this 'window'. It is well worth buying and watching. If you give it a chance, you will be rewarded.

I bought this boxed set when it first came out in 2007--and played it to death. Having just renewed my aquaintance with it, my responces and enjoyment is not diminished at all, in fact, it is appreciated all the more. Reason ? it points up just how original, clever, and lasting, the whole experience is. But, it also reminds me how pallid, weak and formulaic TV comedy currently is, by comparison. Green Wing is so original, from every perspective, ie. camerawork to musical support--bravurra acting, to inovative directing/editing. A true watershed in comedy--or in any medium. With it's adult themes and explicit sexual language, it must have caused consternation in some households with mixed age groups, because I know it became a must-see show of cult status with most school age kids.

Green Wing is a "quirky" comedy series that ran on Channel 4 between 2004 and 2006, consisting of two series of 9 and 8 episodes respectively and a one-off special. The episodes each run for just under an hour and the special 90 minutes.

The series is set in a hospital and follows the fraught and often tortuous relationships of the various employees and their fractured character traits. The series covers a lot of ground and a brief synopsis is almost impossible, but the two highlight plot arcs are:

= An "on-off" love triangle between the three surgeons, Caroline Todd, Guy Secretan and Mac MacCartney, (Greig, Manganand Rhind-Tutt) and the attempts of the monumentally wet student doctor Martin ("Fartin") Dear (Karl Theobald) to break into the triangle and win Todd's affections.

= A rather unconventional love interest between the pompous, stuttering and deeply disturbed radiologist Dr Alan Statham (Mark Heap) and the aging, insecure but sexually aggressive administrator Joanna Clore (Pippa Haywood).

I'm a very big fan of the show and that's why I bought the collectors' edition.

However, when I inserted the dvd in my computer and looked at the contents of the dvd I noticed that it tries to automatically install a rootkit without any user intervention. This kind of behavior is not even legal.
We as customers are getting punished for buying it while pirates provide it for free without malware.
I won't buy dvd's anymore from Channel4 in the future.

The technical stuff:
The DVD's contain Macrovision ActiveReach RipGuard technology. There are 3 hidden files (autorun.inf, 70Z58O4I.exe, RGASDEV.SYS) that, when installed, stop people from creating a legal backup copy for personal use.
There is no way to uninstall this program therefore it gets labeled as a rootkit:

Green Wing is without doubt one of the best TV comedy series ever written
This BAFTA Award winning sureal comedy shot in Basingstoke and Southampton Hospitals is a must have.

I first came across this channel hopping one evening whilst I was looking after my girlfriend who had co-incidently just come out of major surgey at Guys hospital - this was the perfect antedote and we laughed so much that she had to stop watching as her industrial size metal stitches were in danger of exploding.

Green Wing will take you through all the gamets of human emotion it is superbly written. it will always have you smiling and sometimes even crying with laughter.

The natural chemistry and razor sharp banter between arrogant but insecure public school Swiss born, anaesthetist Guy Secretan (Steve Mangan) and Julian Rhind Tutt(crazy name crazy guy) as the unconventional, popular and high flying surgeon Dr "Mac" MacCartney must rate among the funniest spontaneous double acts of all time. With the tall, quirky, honey toned Tamsin Greig (Debbie from "the Archers")as new Dr Caroline Todd - the eventual centre of their affections.

The other star of this series has got to be the up tight, dark and twisted (but not unsymapethic) stammering Radiologist Dr Alan Statham brilliantly played by Mark Heap
(Lark Rise to Candleford) who's is unable to reconcile himself to modern society. His school master authority always undermined by people who dont fit into his old fashioned view of Britain, in particular by his extremely tall and street-wise bullying bysexual pupil Mr Boyce.
