Interesting box set but beware there are some poor edits,
This review is from: Comic Strip Presents - Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
This could be a great box set and appears to be exactly the same as the other one but there are edits which for me completely ruin it. The worst edits are those which are made to South Atlantic Raiders - my all time favourite episode.
Over 5 minutes have been removed including some great lines of dialogue which for me is totally unforgivable.
Apparently the cuts were made by Peter Richardson who really should have known better. There is no warning on the box either as if there was I simply would not have bought it. Also 'Eat the Rich' is missing which should be on here.
I got mine in a sale but alas it went back as I feel I was 'cheated' by this release. It the same with the Only Fools DVD's. I dont think all the episodes are edited but I bought this to replace my 'off air TV recording' of SAR so I guess I will have to keep the VHS tapes.
What a shame and a huge missed opportunity.

Useful review, but I need to correct you on one thing, Eat the Rich was not made by the Comic Strip presents. It has many of the same people but the money for it came from elsewhere. You can find Eat the Rich on its own dvd.
