Editorial Reviews

There's plenty of laughter in store when an unbelievably quirky contingent of sales clerks makes shopping at Grace Brothers the comic experience of a lifetime. For the first time, all 69 episodes of this classic Britcom have been gathered together in one deluxe collection. Each episode is presented uncut and has been lovingly restored. Also included are two bonus discs containing over five hours of extra material!

By A. Fogg
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So I was trying to decide if I should buy this to replace my older AYBS? DVDs. The problem was there was almost no information about this release on the web. I finally decided to order it and take my chances.

So what's new? Just ONE thing: the packaging. This set takes up MUCH less room on your shelf than the old collection (it's about 2 inches wide). Everything else is the same as far as I can tell... the dvd's are exact copies of what was already released (I was kinda hoping for less annoying menus, oh well).

One minor problem is with the slim double-DVD cases: they don't hold the discs in place securely, and discs will often fall out when opening the case.

So the verdict? If you like "Are You Being Served?" and don't already own the collection, this is a very good deal... I paid much more for this set several years back. Do you already own the older set? Then stick with it, unless the shelf space that it takes up is driving you crazy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A British Comedy Classic! December 29, 2004
By Tiggah
Format:DVD
Ten series of this classic Britcom were produced between 1973-1985, and all sixty-nine 30-minute episodes, including the black-and-white pilot and the Christmas specials (positioned chronologically in the order originally broadcast), are here in one boxed set.

The series revolves around the staff of Grace Brothers' Department Store--particulary the staff of menswear and ladieswear. The ladies' department is headed by the pompous, air-assuming Mrs. Slocombe (Mollie Sugden). She's a bit of a man eater (or would be could she get her hands on one!) and is forever fretting about Tiddles, her pussy--cat that is! Her junior is sexy Miss Brahms (Wendy Richard), who is constantly fighting off the advances of the menswear junior, Mr. Lucas (Trevor Bannister, who left the show after series seven due to a scheduling conflict). From series eight on, Mr. Spooner (Mike Berry--a former singer) takes over as the new menswear junior, flirting with Miss Brahms and insulting Mrs. Slocombe at every opportunity! The menswear department is headed by curmudgeonly old Mr. Grainger (Arthur Brough, who died (aged 73) following series five). In between him and Mr. Lucas is the flamboyant Mr. Humphreys (John Inman). With his mincing gait, outrageous costumes, and familiar cry of "I'm free," he's my personal favourite--though the whole cast really is terrific!

Of course one cannot forget the subtly lecherous floorwalker, Captain Peacock, a pompous ex-army officer (or so he claims). One gets a sense that this is probably the only position of authority he's ever had, and he milks it for all its worth, barking orders at his underlings at every opportunity. His favourite target is the rough, bawdy maintenance man, Mr. Mash (replaced by Mr.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for this collection. September 25, 2009
Format:DVD
Some years ago I came across reruns of this hillarious comedy on PBS and fell in love with it. Mollie Sugden was being interviewed as part of a fundraiser if memory serves.

What a pleasant surprise to find the entire collection of episodes plus extensive interviews with the cast that were done before Mollie Sugden's and Wendy Richards' deaths. The interviews with and documentaries of the cast members are on Volume 7 of this set.

Are You Being Served is a classic sitcom, filled with laughter, innuendo and one-liners that made the players famous. Sugden's famous (or infamous as the case may be) lines about her [...] (cat), Tiddles are all here and still funny no matter how many times I watch the episodes. Although the Grace Brothers department store was hopelessly outdated, British humor never goes out of style. I recommend this set for anyone who enjoys laughter and fun. It's all here.

5.0 out of 5 stars They all did very well December 12, 2004
Format:DVD
If I did not already have the season 1-5 box set and the season 6-10 box set separately, I would jump at this deal and would have saved 25 percent. Then again, I could not wait to own this entire series. If you are a fan of AYBS?, you are eventually going to want the whole series, so why wait? Get it all and enjoy the 69 episodes as well as some extras now. It's better then waiting for PBS to air them all in between fund raising telethons. Here's all you get:

The first half of this set (volumes 1-6 with a bonus volume 7) represents the best AYBS? material with original cast members Arthur Brough (Mr. Grainger), Harold Bennett (Young Mr. Grace), Larry Martyn (Mr. Mash), and Trevor Bannister (Mr. Lucas). They include all episodes from the black & white pilot through "It Pays to Advertise" from season 5. Volume 2 also includes my all-time favorite AYBS? episode "Big Brother," when Mr. Rumbold installs a closed circuit television in the store to uncover a burglar but instead uses it to spy on the Grace Brother's staff. The artistic details of both AYBS? sets are very nice. After choosing an episode, the elevator conductor announces the title and the lift doors open to reveal the plot.

The second half of this set (volumes 8-13 with a bonus volume 14) includes some unpopular cast changes but still offers plenty of hilarious episodes. Starting with volume 8, Mr. Grainger is replaced by a string of, mostly unmemorable, characters, and Mr. Lucas will eventually be replaced by the more mean-spirited and less tactful Mr. Spooner. Still, more of my personal favorites are nestled within the later volumes of this set. In "Grounds for Divorce" it seems almost every female member of Grace Brothers is enamored with Captain Peacock. "The Erotic Dreams of Mrs.

Unfortunately not, although the back cover has the "closed caption" logo, there are no captions to be found. I know this because I have this complete collection and on each disc, attempting to press the "SUBTITLE" button brings up an icon that looks like this: Ǿ

69 Episodes is all there ever were. Sure wish more were produced. The 'Pop Star' was no way to end the whole series...
