Last of the Summer Wine: Vintage 1997 (DVD)

Our intrepid trio is back for another series full of adventures! In the Special, a film company comes to town to shoot a horror film and finds a certain trio of willing extras. The season finds everyone's favorite geriatrics up to new antics. When a dating agency comes to town, chaos ensues. The trio helps a chimney sweep find more business. Later, Foggy tries to show Smiler how to be more macho. When the boys try to help a hiker writing a guidebook to the area, Foggy winds up getting the crew hopelessly lost. As usual, Compo is looking to get closer to Nora Batty. In this season, he goes on a mission to get a kiss from her and later buys a motorbike from Auntie Wainwright to impress her. This season of Last of the Summer Wine is not to be missed!

This is a correction on 2/25/13 to my original Nov. 20, 2012 review of the '97 release.
My apologies to you and my mistake was believing and cutting and pasting the THEN listed '97 contents from the BBC America site. I actually cut and pasted the episode listing from the then BBC America site for the '97 release when I posted that review, it turns out they later changed the contents and instead included "Extra Extra" as the special in the '97 release rather than the "Here Comes The Groom" special which the website then listed as part of it's contents. So NOW it looks like, according to the BBC America website episode list of contents, "Here Comes The Groom" will be on the new '98 series DVD set rather than the '97 set. I wish they could get it straight on what the contents are. My apologies for quoting the source, who I thought knew best. Now here is my original review, keep in mind, "Extra Extra" is now the special on the '97 release, not "Here Comes The Groom":

Oh my, a mixed reaction to this set. First it's one of the best of the series because Foggy is still the third man, but then it's sad that this is the last season Foggy played the 3rd Man role. In fact the last episode of this series was a "special" from Dec. '97 where the new third man is introduced, Truly of The Yard. The episodes included in this 1997 installment were all originally on from April to June of '97 and then came one of tne never broadcast in the U.S. "specials" in Dec. '97 "Bride of The Groom", this is where Truly enters while Foggy is doubled in one scene by someone else as supposedly Foggy "sleeping it off". Very uncharacteristic for the real Foggy, I might add.

But let us rejoice in the 10 Foggy filled regular episodes here along with the never before seen in the U.S.

They are being released far too slowly. Some of us your primary audience are geting up in years and the release system neeeds to be accelerated to accomodate the audience that has supported them all these years. I am so ready to revisit the Billy Hardcastle years and at this rate, I may not see it happen. I loved 1997 and I watch it over and over,

Episode 11 was not included on this two disc dvd. I was very disappointed not to have seen how Truly was introduced.

I love, love, love the Last of the Summer Wine programs.

Being a little hard of hearing, especially when it comes to some of the Yorkshire accents, I especially appreciate the subtitles options. I have never been able to decipher the "closed captions" feature of my TV or VCR player. With the subtitles option on the discs, I can click "on" and then I'm able to understand every word.

I have every Last of the Summer Wine DVD that has been released. I am so excited each time I read about another one on the way. They are sometimes released first on BBC America's site, but I wait to get the free shipping and much better price here at Amazon.

My only complaint is that all thirty seasons' episodes are not released as one huge collection. I know the Dark Shadows drama was released as a complete series of more than 1,000 episodes. I believe LOTSW has just over 300 episodes.

I like the series & as the price drops I purchase the older years. This was a good one and worth the viewing.

I can always find several favorites on these DVD's.
A double for Howard makes me laugh all the way through.
Howard is looking for someone his height to trick Pearl. Even
gets under the car with Westley to check his height but
tells him he is to tall. Compo, Foggy, and Clegg tell a salesman
they know that Nora is a chick that goes by the names of
turbo chops, fast Gladys, and sugar lips. Of course when
he tries to sell his magazines Nora goes after him with a brush.

First of all, there's one review that is mistaken by it's content of the series for Vintage 1997 series.
The special, XTRA! XTRA!, was number one on disc one of the two discs included in the set.
The special titled, " Bride of the groom" IS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS SERIES.
Supposedly, this is the last episode with the character, Foggy. Then introduced as the new third man, is Truly of the yard, played by Frank Thornton. This was listed as number 11, last episode on disc number two.
