Last of the Summer Wine Series 17 & 18
on 7 October 2010
So here we are another DVD set of the much loved and longest running comedy show in the world (which was cruelly axed this year after 37 years), however due to Universal calling the series 9 set series 9 & 10 us brits are one series behind with the numbering (which is why certain retailers are listing the actual 17 & 18 series) so what is expected on these sets are actually series 16 & 17 and the specials made at the time of those series, so if we get them two series what can we expect, well there are some very funny episodes from this time such as the defeat of the stoneworm, adopted by a stray, the space ace, the most powerful eyeballs in west yorkshire, bicycle bonanza, the first human being to ride a hill captain clutterbucks treasure, the thing in wesleys shed and brushes at dawn just to name a few, and of course the two specials from this time are the very funny a leg up for christmas and a special mention must go to the man who nearly knew pavorati which guest stars Sir Norman Wisdom, who passed away a few days ago, if we get these two series then it will be a fantastic release to one of the greatest shows on british tv ever, so come on playback release all the episodes ASAP, because one thing is certain, even if the show has been axed us LOTSW fans will never let the show die.
