Another excellent DVD of this marvelous comedy. In total 6 series of One Foot In The Grave were produced (5 during the 1990s) and then after a period of time another 6th series was produced in the year 2000, as I believe. All in all, this is an excellent DVD and I would highly recommend buying this.

Before I begin, I'd just like to say that I can't change the number of stars I originally gave this (my original DVD was faulty) and so I'll put my new score here: 5 stars

Series 3 is where the Meldrew saga really took off, and contains some of my all-time favourite episodes. There's "Monday Morning Will Be Fine", in which Victor tries to face life without the telly. A visit to the pub seems a good idea, but disaster soon strikes. There's also "Beware the Trickster on the Roof", in which Victor's neighbour returns from holiday with a present for him - a scorpion talisman which supposedly brings misfortune. But surely that's only superstition. Isn't it? Other episodes involve Victor's accident-prone brother visiting, bringing along a little keepsake of his - the Meldrews' ancestor's skull. And Victor's patience is tried when he's stuck in a traffic jam in one of those 'one-scene' episodes which this series does so well. All in all a timeless classic.

Not sure whether it was the collection of episodes or the fact that everything appeared to have been filmed in the dark on this DVD but I did not enjoy it as much as the other series.
There was an episode where Margaret goes missing and that did not suit the theme of OFITG. We rely on Margaret to be the strong/straight actor who provides an excellent support role to the forever bellyaching Victor. When the tables were turned it seemed a bit dark. The Christmas Special was not the best either with the loss of Pippa's baby.

I actually felt depressed watching series 3. The best episode was The Beast in the Cage where we see Victor return to his old self putting up with the daftness of Mrs Wallboys and generally angry with all that is wrong with the world.

This series is timeless. Absolutely ingenious! This is one of the few comedy/TV series which has never lost it oomph! As the programmes are gradually released, the last one is as good as the first. Sure, everyone has their favourite episode but Richard Wilson and Annette make this series their own. The only thing that ever bugged me about the series was Eric Idles theme tune - you win some you lose some. Thoroughly recommended these series.

I really like Richard Wilson in this series, but the writers could have done better with Pippa. The scene where her husband is reading the horoscopes about how next door neighbours food is going to affect them, but Pippa is getting very angry while she is washing the dishes and says "is there a cloth by the door, well shove it in your bloody mouth" and storms out. I think that she should have been like Zoe Wannamaker's character, Susan in My Family and given a cynical or funny remark. One foot in the grave is supposed to be funny and shouting at him like that does not suit the programme.

It's hard to overstate the joy some of us felt when this series appeared in the early 90's. Sitcoms worthy of the name were few and far between at that time. Many appeared and were short lived, and by the time One Foot appeared, tuning in was often a triumph of hope over experience. But hope was rewarded in this case, and by the third series all the memorable characters were well-established. For a British sitcom the cast of regular and occasional characters was quite large, and they all brought an extra dimension to the surreal Meldrew landscape. There are moments of sheer comic genius - the brief appearance of Enn Reitel as the tramp in "Dreamland" is a study in comedy timing. The Christmas specials were always an extra treat, and the sad tale of Victor's radioactive horse manure is no exception. Buy it and thank yourself.

An excellent series badly let down by the poor quality of the DVD reproduction. My copy is in the process of being returned, the sound and picture are out of sync, in fact on disc 2 the sound and picture are so far out of sync it is unwatchable.
I could just imagine what Victor would have to say if he saw this!
