In summary, this is a must watch and a rite of passage to the later episodes. Do not let the three star rating put you off, it's really a reflection of how good the later 5* series are.
You can't go wrong with any MINDER DVD. But I would say get the lot. It's a thing that will go on through history. Way high above the -Rubbish - we see today.
The very first one was shot in Rohampton and used a launderette. All that took place 30 years ago. Well the launderette is still here,and thankfully,so is MINDER.
