Four episodes from the 1970s sitcom about the comedy exploits of a mixed-race adult education language class. In 'The First Lesson', teacher Jeremy Brown (Barry Evans) arrives for his first day at the Southbank College of Further Education eager to spread the joy of knowledge - then he meets his students. 'An Inspector Calls' has Jeremy mistake the school inspector for a student and then offend his wife into the bargain. 'A Fate Worse than Death' finds Ranjeet (Albert Moses) asking for help when he resolves to escape the clutches of his bride-to-be. And 'All Through the Night' sees the class get locked in the classroom after hours and prepare for a long night together.

I recommend this series as a good laugh. Of course there are sub-texts, and the teacher himself (and the manager) are also the subject of parody. If we see it as well-intentioned, then this will bring a smile to most people.
"Mind Your Language" is truly one of the funniest comedies created. Politically incorrect or not. It has all the right ingredients to make it what it is - A Classic! To not laugh at least once every 10 seconds you would have to be either, a) had your lips glued together, b) be totally deaf or, c) been sucking lemons all night.
Coming from New Zealand this DVD has been a long time coming and one had to endure a long and patient wait for its much anticipated arrival. The DVD is SUPER! albeit for one or two issues. Firstly why could'nt the creators of the DVD's had found it in their infinite wisdom to include more episodes on each DVD rather than a paltry 4 or 3 episodes, tsk' tsk', most unfortunate I must say. Secondly why could there not have been a mini-documentary developed of sorts involving the cast and crew concerning how the comedy came about and it's ins' and outs', etc or an audio commentary if the budget was tight. Other than that everything is pretty much as you would expect it to be. Here's hopeing they create Volumes 5, 6,...
All in all, it is a superb watch for old and young alike and am very proud to have it on the top shelf of my DVD collection with the rest of my classics, and so should you!
Only four stars because the box set should have been released as a two-disc set in a single case, rather than making 14 episodes take up four whole cases worth of space, and there are no extras on the discs.

Beware the misleading title. Volume 4; but is, in fact, Series 3 and not the come back series from 1986.Published 9 months ago by Shree
