This review is from: As Time Goes By Series 1 & 2 [DVD] (DVD)
If you've never seen this series, or have only seen the later series, then you HAVE to buy this set. It's some of the best comedy the BBC have produced in recent years. It's subtle in places and you can find yourself thinking of people you know in your own life that act like Jean and Lionel!!
The factor that really makes this series so good is the brilliant comedy performances by Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer, and what wonderful chemistry and comic timing they have on screen together.
The first two series are excellent; showing how Lionel finds Jean again after many many years. All the characters are there such as Sandy and Alistair, the latter is far more irritating than in later series, but you can't help but like him and laugh at his antics.
This is the kind of series that entertains no matter how many times it's watched. A timeless sitcom!
