Every Are You Being Served fan should buy both box sets of these hilarious series but, if one is only willing to purchase one DVD, this is it! IMO, three of the all-time best episodes are on volume 2 as well as 3 other excellent shows. There is not one weak episode on here. My favorite is "Big Brother" where Mr. Rumbold installs a hidden camera in the department to find a shop lifter but, instead, spies on the staff including counting how many times Mrs. Slocombe visits the powder room, what Mr. Grainger eats behind the counter, and what Captain Peacock does to Miss Brahms "nether regions." My second favorite is "Cold Comfort" when Grace Brothers decides to turn off the store heating system to conserve energy during the fuel crisis leading to some very innovative methods to stay warm in the men's department. "The Clock" is also excellent when Mr. Grainger, fearing he will be given the customary retirement clock during his 37th anniversary party, hears a "cuckoo" in Mr. Rumbold's office. The other episodes are also tops: "The Think Tank" where the staff puts on a trial fashion show in the hopes to improve sales, "Hoorah for the Holidays" when Young Mr. Grace presents the staff with paid-for vacation options that may not even be worth the price, and "Hand of Fate" when promotion rumors are flying and Mr. Humphries palm-reading skills are put to the test. I'm warning you, though, once you've see this DVD, you are going to want MORE!

Every episode of the classic years of "Are You Being Served?" is a treasure. When you buy something on DVD, there is the possibility that one will tire of it after awhile and roll their eyes whenever they catch that program on TV.

Not so with this classic BBC comedy.

"The Clock" is the cast at their best, "Cold Comfort" will leave you in stitches at the way the staff tries to beat the cold weather, "Big Brother" will keep you laughing at how the staff gets back at good ol' Rumbold for using security cameras in the store to try to deter theft (there are two more episodes on the DVD).

I'm usually not one for DVD extras (they tend to take the magic away) but I was interested in the backgrounds of the actors and actresses. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well-accomplished they all were and continue to be as well as the episode trivia. And the fact that there are five episodes on each DVD gives you more value for your dollar.

Are You Being Served has seen time on American televisions courtesy of PBS. Sadly, the folks who watch PBS do not make up the viewing masses and those poor folks (the ones who DON'T watch PBS) are/were missing out on some great comedy.

John Inman's over the top performance of Mr. Humphries is one of the things that would draw new watchers to this program. But it's not just the John Inman Show. The entire cast makes this series work. If Captain Peacock were to be sent elsewhere, anarchy and chaos would reign. Mrs. Slocum would battle head to head with Mr. Lucas or Mr. Grainger, if he were awake.

This is top notch writing, directing and acting. If you do not or cannot laugh while watching this disc, you might want to contact the police about your missing sense of humor.

More good episodes that I missed when the series originally aired, such as Mr. Grainger almost being given the retirement cuckoo clock after 37 years, Grace Brothers trying to save money by turning off the heat (lots of innovative ways to get around it), a 'Think Tank' episode when the group tries brainstorming to improve sales (and Mr. Rumbold steals their ideas), etc.

Are You Being Served? is the story of the staff of the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Wear departments in Grace Brothers department store. While customer’s come and go, the staff fights each other and their incompetent superiors with laughs all around. The stories are hilarious and are generally clean, though a running gag involves one lady’s constant frettings about her pussy (cat). So, this tape can be watched with younger ones, but some discretion should be exercised.

Nonetheless, this is a great Britcom, one of the classics. If you want to find out what all the excitement about Britcoms is, then buy this DVD!

This great DVD includes the following six(!) half-hour episodes:

The Clock - Series 2, episode 1, 3/14/1974 – In celebration of his 65th birthday, Grace Brothers is having a special dinner. But, will he be given the cuckoo clock, which means that he is to be retired?

Cold Comfort - Series 2, episode 2, 3/21/1974 – In answer to the fuel crisis, Grace Brothers has turned off the heat, leaving the staff to fend for themselves, and it’s amazing what they will do to keep warm.

The Think Tank - Series 2, episode 3, 3/28/1974 – Sales are down, so Mr. Rumbold organizes the staff into a think tank – and what do they come up with? A fashion show!

Big Brother - Series 2, episode 4, 4/4/1974 – Shoplifting is up, and Mr. Rumbold takes action to increase security. But, the staff objects to the Big Brother atmosphere and takes action.

Hooray for the Holidays - Series 2, episode 5, 4/11/1974 – During redecoration, Grace Brothers offers the staff a special vacation...if there are any takers!

The Hand of Fate - Series 3, episode 1, 2/27/1975 – When Mr. Humphries reads Capt. Peacock’s hand, he see something big in his future, but fate is a fickle lady!
