After a couple of lacklustre series, Eric & Ernie return for what is probably their most consistent and riveting series ever.
The 1973 and 1974 series had suffered from a lack of variety and excrutiatingly long sketches. Thankfully, this series sees the return of the "quickie" sketches, two musical guests per episode and a much more focused, better paced finale.
This is the series that includes the Breakfast/Stripper sketch, which has about a minute of extra material at the start. You can see why they edit it out on compilations, but seeing M&W sketches in context is always rewarding, particularly all the different closing songs.
It's a pity they were never this consistent again, but as the close of their BBC work (their last two Christmas specials are already out on DVD), this is certainly a high point to end on.

As always Morecambe & Wise are the best comedians ever to appear on TV. Some of their routines have been used a few too many times, but they are still funny. Some of their special guests seem to be belttled in the shows, but they are obviously enjoying the show anyway.

Best comedians on disk.

What can you say about perfection? The best double act ever, at the peak of their powers. They don't date. Eric Morecambe would be funny in any century. Highly recommended.

A typical Morecambe and Wise entertainment package, always good for a laugh and value for money. Timeless comedy to enjoy.

This DVD was ordered for a young man with Downs Syndrome, he was very excited when it arrived as he had all the other series but couldn't find this one, so thank you Amazon it has given him hours of enjoyment already.

Incredible comedy and the type not seen on US Television any longer. They are classic musical variety shows, and if ordering from the United States make sure you have a Region Free/All Region DVD player. If so, you WILL be entertained by M&W!
