(PS the episodes are great if you have people over who never seen or even heard about 'Mind Your Own Language", it will really kill them, people beg me to borrow them).
(PPS Thanks Amazon)
I stumbled on the DVD set by pure chance when, out of curiosity, I did a search on Google.com Now that I have the DVD set I'm enjoying the very hilarious series all over again. I highly recommend it for anyone who is seeking comic relief.
The show was about an English teacher trying without much success to teach the English language to a group of foreigners from different countries. The characters were stereotypes and the comments they came up with did get predictable as the series progressed but the tickle factor never waned.
I can only assume that "political correctness" was behind the axing of the show after only two seasons for it could have gone on for so much longer.

One of The Best British Comedies of All Time. It is very funny although it was made in the 80s.
Never been bored of watching it.
