I watched ever episode when it was first broadcast and this became my introduction to the kitchen sink genre which I now love with a passion (my favourite 2 films of all time are A Kind of Loving  and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning ). The TV adaptation of A Kind of Loving is superb and has the benefit of having the trilogy of stories written about Vic Brown - Stan Barstow's writing at his best!
The acting in the series is superb throughout. Clive Wood as Vic, and the wonderful charms of both a very young Joanne Whalley (later Whalley-Kilmer) and Susan Penhaligan (who was also in Bouquet of Barbed Wire).
This series did get a repeat viewing on SKY TV about 10 years ago and then was available as a 'bootleg' DVD which I bought a few years ago - still great but with inferior quality. I so much look forward to the release of this DVD set. Is it too much to hope that they may have a few extras with the set?
I have signed the petition online to have it released by Granada, and have obtained bootlegged copies online, but look forward to buying the authorized DVD.
I remember falling hopelessly in Love with Ingrid, Joanne Willey, when it was first shown in the 80's, and seeing it again recently, nothing has changed. My dream girl. This film made a deep impression on me as a teenager. and to find it on DVD, was like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
The acting is just superb. I really liked vic in the first Dvd, But ended up hating him in the the other two DVD's, for being so rotten to poor doe eyed Ingrid, and sleeping around so much using everyone for his selfish needs. Such a great actor.I love the grittiness and the 1950's 60's and 70's periods in which this was set.There are some good actors and actresses I remember from the 70's and 80's in the cast too.Look out for a young Loffty from Eastenders. I didn't even realise the picture quality much, if it wasn't for what the other reviewers were saying, I wouldn't have noticed. I just think things like that add to the magic of a vintage series. I love the music, can't get the theme tune out of my head.
I didn't like how Ingrid was written out of the last DVD. And if it wasn't for all the sleeping around while still married destroying live's and the last DVD story not being as good as the first two.I would give this full Marks. cant please everyone I suppouse.
All in all. I could watch this DVD 3 times a week and not ever get bored with it. It has really got into my mind and heart.Simply love it. Great price too. worth every penny. just wish they'd have stuck to the original story.
