As a collector of old Sitcoms,this to me was a favourite at the time ..admittedly its a dated series which might not appeal today..The rauchy comedy was new and OTT at the time( alomg with Casanova,Emanuelle,etc) but totally tame by todays standards ,Recently acquired a copy of Whoops Bagdad a spin off series from this ..Fawlty towers and Black adder had it right ..Best just make a few great series and have em begging for more than making too many espisodes.. A rare find so get this series if you find it..Theres not many about

A great return to yesteryear, I missed this first time around beacause I hadn't been born. The bbc repeated it in the early 90's and I thought it was funny. It's different in many ways to the ordinary sit-com the audience asides and overacting is encouraged. Double meanings and political incorrectness rule and its all the better for it.

After the success of the hit BBC series it was not surprising when this movie version of "Up Pompeii" was made in the 70s & as you would expect Frankie Howerd takes the character of slave Lurcio from small screen to big screen with absolute ease!! The movie version contains all the same ingredients and characters from the TV series (Ludicrous Sextus, Ammonia, Nausius and Erotica) but interestingly and somewhat surprisingly all the main characters are played by different actors/actresses than those in the orginal series!!(not quite sure why??). Anyway the innuendos and sauciness come aplenty during this super bawdy romp which is both funny and delightful from start to finish!! The only thing that let the movie version down was that it wasn't of course filmed in front of a live audience which is where Frankie Howerd really shone during the BBC series, as his ad-libs with the audience during the weekly show just added that extra something!! That aside I would heartily recommend this DVD if you want something easy to watch and a good laugh too!! And if you don't want to watch it... then "Please Yourselves!!". Salute!!

An excellent collection of a comedy series which is as funny now as it was when it was first made. Frankie Howerd is at his best as the slave Lurkio.
