Editorial Reviews

The world’s longest-running sitcom returns with two seasons of high-jinx from everyone’s favorite geriatrics! The lure of Georgian silver prompts the boys to scour the canal in a homemade glass-bottomed boat, and chaos ensues when Compo smuggles a dog into the hospital to cheer up an old friend. At Seymour’s urging, Compo and Clegg try their hand at skiing on trays, and a Welsh ferret in compo’s care has an eventful day out. Compo hopes that wind-surfing on an ironing board will win the ever-elusive admiration of Nora Batty, but the speed record goes to Edie’s son-in-law Barry when he tangles with Wesley’s oversized kite.

4.0 out of 5 stars A first look at the upcoming release. . . . January 25, 2011
This is one of my all-time favorite Britcoms, and like others who have posted here, the BBC & Warner Brothers can't release them fast enough for me.

According to the BBC America Shop website, these are the episodes to expect in this one:

1. "The Experiment" - Compo wonders why all the blood rushes to his head when he's turned upside down. Seymour sets out to discover why. (16 October 1988)
2. "The Treasure of the Deep" - Is the piece of silver fished out of the canal really a thief's haul? Is there more where it came from? (23 October 1988)
3. "Dancing" - Compo's feet hurt, but why go to visit "The Witch" for a cure? (30 October 1988)
4. "That Certain Smile" - A visit by a much loved pet seems the only way to bring a smile to Clem's face during a spell in hospital. (6 November 1988)
5. "Downhill Racer" - Seymour tries to prove that skiing is more than just a winter sport for the rich. (13 November 1988)
6. "The Day of the Welsh Ferret" - Compo has an encounter with a ferret. (20 November 1988)
7. "Come Back, Jack Harry Teesdale" - Is Jack Harry's cumbersome caravan wrecking his marriage? Seymour seems to think so, so he drags in Compo and Clegg to lend a hand. (15 October 1989)
8. "The Kiss and Mavis Poskitt" - Clegg could be the answer to a lonely widow's prayer! Meanwhile, who is kissing who? (22 October 1989)
9. "Oh Shut Up and Eat Your Choc Ice" - The trio examines a haystack, resulting in their having to push it back to the top of a hill. (29 October 1989)
10. "Who's That Bloke With Nora Batty, Then?" - Compo is concerned when he sees Nora going out mysteriously and then sees her in the pub with another man. (5 November 1989)
11.

OK... wrong film but the sentiment is still there! Move faster BBC/Warner!

This time we get 2 series (10 and 11) from our favorite retirees. From the press release:

"The world's longest-running sitcom returns with two seasons of high-jinx from everyone's favorite geriatrics! The lure of Georgian silver prompts the boys to scour the canal in a homemade glass-bottomed boat, and chaos ensues when Compo smuggles a dog into the hospital to cheer up an old friend. At Seymour's urging, Compo and Clegg try their hand at skiing on trays, and a Welsh ferret in compo's care has an eventful day out. Compo hopes that wind-surfing on an ironing board will win the ever-elusive admiration of Nora Batty, but the speed record goes to Edie's son-in-law Barry when he tangles with Wesley's oversized kite."

These are great. I buy them for myself and for my best friend as fast as they come out. Just wish they would be released faster and more in sequence. The releases seem to jump around with several years' gaps in between.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOTSW-Britcoms one of the best May 21, 2011
First saw LOTSW on PBS years ago, what a treat. It does take watching a few shows to really get into. The show was on in Britain from 1973 to 2010. Some years only had a Christmas special instead of the six to ten episodes normally shown. The 1988 year (series 10) has six episodes and year 1989 (series 11) has seven. There are no extras on this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars entertainment for relaxation and laughter January 23, 2012
By Jean
Verified Purchase
These characters are sufficiently different and complex to keep the mind engaged, while the plots are simple and very normal-life. The plots revolve around 'I want her but can't get her', 'All men are useless', 'All women are angry & controlling', 'I want to accomplish something big', and 'I don't want to be noticed'. The characters get into all sorts of scrapes and misunderstandings, as you can imagine.
