Product description

Product Description

All 39 episodes from the cult '70s sitcom series about one man's never-ending efforts to date his female flatmates. Chef Robin Tripp (Richard O'Sullivan) is discovered sleeping in the bath of gorgeous flatmates Chrissy and Jo (Paula Wilcox and Sally Thomsett) after their party. He desperately needs a place to stay, and they desperately need someone who can cook - seems ideal. Unfortunately, the landlords, George and Mildred Roper (Brian Murphy and Yootha Joyce) don't approve, which is when Robin conceives his master plan, and decides to pretend that he's gay. Episodes comprise: 'Three's A Crowd', 'And Mother Makes Four', 'Some Enchanted Evening', 'And Then There Were Two', 'It's Only Money', 'Match Of The Day', 'No Children, No Dogs', 'While The Cat's Away', 'Colour Me Yellow', 'In Praise Of Older Men', 'Did You Ever Meet Rommel', 'Two Foot Two, Eyes Of Blue', 'Carry Me Back To Old Southampton', 'Cuckoo In The Nest', 'Come Into My Parlour', 'I Won't Dance, Don't Ask Me', 'Of Mice And Women', 'Somebody Out There Likes Me', 'We Shall Not Be Moved', 'Three Of A Kind', 'Home And Away', 'One For The Road', 'All In The Game', 'Never Give Your Real Name', 'The Tender Trap', 'My Son, My Son', 'The Last Picture Show', 'Right Said George', 'A Little Knowledge', 'Love And Let Love', 'How Does Your Garden Grow?', 'Come Fly With Me', 'The Party's Over', 'One More For The Pot', 'The Generation Game' 'The Sunshine Boys', 'Mum Always Liked You Best', 'Fire Down Below' and 'Another Bride, Another Groom'.

From Amazon.co.uk

This is the film based on the 1970s TV sitcom Man About the House, made during the same period with the same cast. At the time, the whole idea of a single man and two single women sharing a flat, however (more-or-less) platonically, seemed terribly naughty. The scriptwriters wickedly stirred things up even further by making Richard O'Sullivan's character a randy-but-gentlemanly heterosexual, despite being a catering student--after all, in the 70s everyone just knew that all chefs were roaring poofs. The trio's sex-starved landlady (Yootha Joyce) and her rodent-like, impotent husband (Brian Murphy) were later to get their own series, George and Mildred.

The plot is a perfunctory affair, as property developers attempt and fail to demolish the street in which the protagonists live. That said, the script (cowritten by John Mortimer) isn't really narrative-driven anyway, it's purely an excuse for the characters to interact with the will-they-won't-they-ooh-they-are-a-bit relationship between Robin and Chrissie (Paula Wilcox) and practically invites the viewer to cheer them on. While the transition to the big screen caused the idea to lose much of its energy, as a dollop of comedy nostalgia Man About the House is still great fun. And if you don't laugh at the jokes, just check out the clothes, cars, hairstyles and makeup, not to mention all that cigarette smoking! --Roger Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
