I used to watch Mind Your Language when I was a kid and I remember it was very funny. I bought the dvd set and after watching it, it takes me back to my youth. My daughter, who is 14 years old, just loves it and has been watching it constantly. I must say though that in this day and age it may not be politically correct, however what you have to remember it is that it was filmed in the 1970s. I wouldn't recommend it if you are easily offended. I am of Pakistani background and I thought it was hilarious.

I was privileged to grow up with this series played usually on a Saturday afternoon when originally transmitted. As a child I chuckled and that was without understanding any of the 'adult references', so when I bought this box set I could relive it all over again but with a greater understanding of the grown up stuff.

Basically, it starts with a newly appointed English teacher Mr. Brown (Barry Evans) at a night school teaching a healthy mixture of foreign students. His efforts are met with constant frustration as he is often misunderstood with the words and phrases he is trying to teach. However a wonderful relationship grows throughout the series between teacher and students where his patience with them pays off, especially when they show their loyalty towards him. For example, the rather stern school principal 'Miss Courtney' makes various attempts to replace Mr Brown but the students simply cause havoc for any substitute until their beloved Mr Brown is reinstated again.

In no way was this series designed to mock foreigners, instead it displays in a very innocent manner the barriers that can be discovered between cultures and the sheer humor that develops from misunderstanding. Arguments have been raised about country 'stereotypes' but as with all comedy a subject or person is chosen and their quirks are exaggerated a little to create the desired effect. If anything, most of the mocking is towards the English language and how aspects of it don't make sense to the rest of the world, but it's all done in a very funny way.

How could anyone not laugh when 'Miss Courtney' addresses 'Taro' (Japanese student) and asks - "Taro, how many p's in a Pound? to which he replies, "It depend on size of peas-o!".

This DVD set features Series 1 - 3 and not series 4. The series was released as a boxed set on Region 2 DVD in 2003, and on Region 1 DVD in 2004. Contrary to other reviews this set DOES include the Season 1 episode Kill Or Cure, the Season 2 episode Don't Forget The Driver, the Season 3 episode Guilty Or Not Guilty? However, the entire Season 4 has been ommited for reasons mentioned below. An alternate boxed set was released by Network DVD in November 2007, containing the complete Seasons 1 to 3. The remaining fourth series has yet to be released on DVD. Series 4 was made in 1986 by an independent producer in the mid 1980s ( It was resurrected briefly for the export market) it featured only some of the original cast. Some ITV companies didn't show any of the episodes made in 1986. Only Granada transmitted the final 13 episodes consecutively as a complete series.

Brilliant and fun for all the family - This is comedy despite what you read or hear from the PC brigade and it is not racist, it is just comedy caricatures of different nations learning English and the mistakes they make often hillarious, there are also caricture of English (Cockney) and the Scotish and it is very funny with no malice what so ever. One scene that cracks me up everytime I see it, is when the Japanese Student bows to greet Mr Brown and they clash heads, when Mr Brown bows back, and on one occasion Mr Brown hit his head on the table - timeless simple slapstick :)!!!

This is one of the best comedies I've ever watched. It makes our "politically correct" society of today look pathetic. What happened to being able to laugh at ourselves? We're far too serious and ultra-sensitive these days. If anyone with half a sense of humour would watch this series, they too would realise what a namby-pamby society we've become. Sadly, I doubt if the series would go down well with the younger generation today. Nonetheless, we "oldies" remember the days when we COULD rib each other without fear of offence or retribution - my goodness, what light-hearted souls we were (and still are). Please, if you want a good laugh, brilliant one-liners, etc. etc. then this is the series for you! I would recommend it without hesitation.

This comedy TV show from the 1970s would not have been made now days as it would not be 'politically correct' today. However people were far more open minded about what is reality and what is just a bit of fun.
Thankfully they didn't have those issues 30 years ago and this collection of story's is a laugh a minute.
Everyone has a favorite character, mine was the saucy French girl and the Communist Chinese girl.
The story's are at times a bit dated but the acting is brilliant and the characters created by these actors is superb and very real.
I enjoy putting on a episode when I feel I need a laugh and this set is a good start.
