5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Brittas, 12 Aug. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Brittas Empire: The Complete Series 4 [DVD] (DVD)
Like myself, i'm sure many of you will know a "Brittas" in real life. Series 4 continues the hilarious antics of Gordon, Laura, Helen, Colin, et al. This series contains some classic episodes. They are exceedingly funny, yet at the same time some are very touching when Gordon shows that he often means well. In this series we see him acting in his inimitable incompetent way as manager of Whitbury Newtown Leisure Centre. Several of the episodes in this series have well known guest stars including Sebastian Coe MP & Guy Siner (Lt Gruber in Allo Allo). Brittas has to cope with the usual assortment of problems which stand in the way of his dream. In "Not a good day" the leisure Centre is besiged by Roman soldiers after Brittas arrests the son of a centurion. Then in "Brittas changes trains" the staff of the leisure centre have all been hypnotised on a night out with hilarious results. This epsode contains several 'plots' running in parallel. Next Gavin has a fiancee in Playing with Fire. However, not all is as it seems. At the same time Gordon is on an energy efficiency drive & Colin helps by recycling toilet waste. All this happens in just the first 3 episodes of this series. The series had me rolling around in laughter & even a few tears when Gordon is sacked by Councillor Drugger because of his failure to make the Leisure centre make a profit. However, Gordon can't stay away from the place & ultimately ends up being the cause of the Leisure centre burning down. Is this the end for Brittas? Of course not! Gordon ends up as a hero of the story as only he can!
Don't miss this DVD. It's classic Brittas!!!
