Two cassettes which present the complete collection of the first series of the BBC sitcom featuring the irascible Victor Meldrew (Richard Wilson). Episodes included are: 'I'll Retire to Bedlam'; 'The Eternal Quadrangle'; 'The Return of the Speckled Bird'; 'Alive and Buried'; 'Big Sleep'; and 'The Valley of Fear'.
The very first series of One Foot in the Grave starring Richard Wilson as Victor Meldrew, an everyman forced into early retirement. He's thrust into hanging around the house, tormenting his wife Margaret (Annette Crosbie) just by existing. Taking odd jobs that somehow don't work out, or courting coincidental mayhem around him, David Renwick's script is wonderfully deak and surreal, full of witty ennui and true-to-life observations. Caught up in his constant bad luck is Margaret's odd friend Mrs Warboys and their strange neighbour Mr Swainey (and his invisble mother).
This DVD contains every episode from series one: "Alive and Buried", "The Big Sleep", "The Valley of Fear", "I'll Retire to Bedlam", "The Eternal Quadrangle" and "The Return of the Speckled Band".

I knew I was in for a treat but forgot how ridiculous the situations Victor weekly finds himself in, could be. I also forgot how 'dark' parts of it could get. It was always must-see TV to me and feel it was the last really brilliant sitcom made - sad as that's 15 years ago when it ended, but when I use the word 'brilliant', I really mean it.
Yes, I could have bought the box set but didn't want to zip through the episodes at the rate of a series a day!
