Customer Review

on 19 March 2009
With this series recently being shown on tv I finally got bored with all the adverts and bought series 1 & 2. I've not regretted it. The versions they now show on tv have been edited and they appear to show a very poor quality copy. Seeing them as intended in a high quality transfer is a delight.

Fans can argue which is the best run and for me it's marginally the second. Series one is very much 13 episodes with little in the way of an overall storyline whereas the second series has a central story. The humour is as funny today as it ever was, the acting by the main characters is perfectly pitched (even if some of the bit parts are played by people who perhaps should never work again, although this is compensated for by other actors appearing you'll recognize from other shows), and the stories, even if a little obvious, work well.

So, treat yourself. All 26 episodes in one package is superb value.
