Good value and a good selection, but I only ordered it because another reviewer said that it included 'Bringing Sam Home'. This is my favourite episode, from the series' best period, but unfortunately, I soon discovered that it's NOT actually included here! This set is still worth buying, however.
Is usually this collection of LOSW! Thankfully, I can now compare to the series 1 & 2 (and 3 & 4) available in the UK.
This collection contains most of the first series. I have to wonder who edited this collection, as *most* of the series 1 episodes are mostly complete. Mostly, because there are snips of scenes deleted in this collection, apparently for time? There doesn't appear to be any consistency in the editing, therefore only 4 stars.
The best disc in this collection has to be the movie "Bringing Sam Home"-- some of Roy Clarke's best writing, acted with marvelous artistry of the regular cast, including John Comer lip-syncing to a voice-actor's dialogue, and a short appearance of Joe Gladwin, both, sadly, just prior to their deaths. I love Lynda Baron's (Open All Hours) portrayal of Lily Blessher.
I truly hope that "Uncle of the Bride" and additional seasons on DVD will be forthcoming soon!
