It's not completely lacking..more of a "collector's item" but worth having..but just so you know the episodes are not in order..the company that made this dvd (BFS), is not the brightest..
The dvd quality is fine, the sound is fine, but the picture flickers a few times here and there..nothing really noticeable except that the same trivia is on set one and two.
The most difficult aspect of both these sets is that they are not presented in chronological order-- both seasons are all mixed together, and the finale of the series is in Set 1. I really wish BFS would do a better job allowing us here in the U.S. to view these series as they were presented originally.
Interesting that in the Filmographies, neither Jennifer Saunders or Dawn French mention their work in the Young Ones. It'd be nice to get ahold of the older Comic Strip Presents series as well (MTV did show several of those performance pieces.)
The only thing that I dont understand is that they are not avalible in England' this is the only place that I have found them' but who cares Ive got them now.
I hope you enjoy them.
Video quality is satisfactory.
If you haven't seen this show, you won't find the sophistication of AbFab, but if you like Rude Girl shows in general this should appeal to you. Ruby Wax is brassy and loud (revealing a lot about her real upbringing, too, if you read her autobiography "How Do You Want Me?"). Dawn French is bossy, and Jennifer Saunders catatonic. My favourite is the perenially shallow Candice, played by Tracey Ullman.
If female comedy is your thing, you won't be disappointed.
The four roommates have colorful eccentric and even loud personalities. Dawn French's Amanda is the feminist journalist. Ruby Wax's Shelly Dupont is the American aspiring actress in London. Funny how Shelley came from Los Angeles (Hollywood) and didn't stay there where she probably would have been more successful. Shelly has the money. Saunders played the moody heiress. Ullman plays the blonde roommate.
The two discs only feature eight episodes and no features like a recollection of the short-lived series. It is no surprise why the series was panned by critics. It can be a mess sometimes but it's worth watching for light entertainment and to see four of Britain's rising stars in 1985 before they became Absolutely Fabulous and Ruby's career in broadcasting and Tracey Ullman's own success in America.
I enjoyed Ruby Wax despite her Shelly's obnoxious stereotypical American behavior as loud and overbearing. Her Shelly becomes endearing anyway during the short run.

The series is funny but the writing is dated of course. Great acting and writers. It's great seeing a lot of highly talented people together in one spot at such a young age. Read morePublished on January 4, 2014 by Laura T
These girls are very funny. There are not very many episodes. It is not laugh out loud funny, but is it funny. Reminds me a little of the Facts of Life. This is a great show.Published on May 27, 2013 by James Salyer
