Robin`s Nest complete collection
on 28 July 2011
This is a very funny comedy series that was a spin off from another series called Man about the House. That series featured the character Robin Tripp. The series had been very successful and when it ended two new spin off series were created. One was George and Mildred and the other was Robins Nest. Fresh from the successful Man about the house comedy series, Robin Tripp has now left his two female flatmates and teamed up with his live in lover Vicky Nicholls. Vicky is an air hostess. The pair live in their own flat in Fulham London above a bistro called Robins Nest.
Also in this show there is the character of Albert Riddle who is a one arm washer up and helper that works for the bistro. He is a funny character who is an Irish ex con with plenty of blarney.
Everything seems to be going well, but then there is also the character of father to Vicky, James Nicholls who is a disapproving figure. He is also a rather over enthusiastic "sleeping partner" in the business at the Bistro.
Meanwhile mother of Vicky, Marion, is more sympathetic to her daughter and the life she has with long haired cook Robin.
Tensions ease when Robin and Vicky get married and have twins.
Sir Richard O`Sullivan also wrote the synthesizer theme music. This DVD set contains the complete series and the packaging is nicely presented. But there are no subtitles for other languages or the hard of hearing.
There are some very good episodes throughout the series and generally it is a gentle comedy with a good slice of farce.
