Editorial Reviews

Join everyone's favorite trio for another season of hilarious adventures! Hoping to keep his comrades as young and spritely as ever Foggy sets up a training course to get Compo and Clegg in shape but as usual safety isn't his first concern. When the trio gets a grill from Auntie Wainwrights they have a barbecue like never before. Foggy ever the inspired inventor comes up with the idea to create bicycle safety underwear and later in the season a three man windsurfing sailboard. Finally in the Christmas special the trio plan to host a visitor from outer space or maybe just a neighboring town.

5.0 out of 5 stars Currently inaccurate Editorial Review information December 28, 2012
By Howie
The "Editorial Review" is directly from the press release which indicates "Foggy" is involved. This is not the case if the product listing is correct as the last episode with "Foggy" was in series 18 which aired in 1997. The press release/Editorial Review describes Series 15 from 1993 which has already seen a release (Last of the Summer Wine: Vintage 1993).

Series 19 from 1998 is the first full series (aka season) with Frank Thornton as "Truly". There was no "Christmas Special" produced for the 1998 series. This is one of the last series with Bill Owen as "Compo". He would complete series 20 and 3 episodes in series 21 before passing.

Here are the episodes from 1998 - series 19:

S19/E1 - 4 January 1998 "Beware of the Oglethorpe": The trio meet a world-weary old school chum, and resolve not to go the same way.

S19/E2 - 11 January 1998 "Tarzan of the Towpath": The trio attempt to relive an old childhood tradition of rolling down a hill instead of walking, but it wasn't as easy as they thought!

S19/E3 - 18 January 1998 "Truly and the Hole Truth": Truly is determined to get his name in the paper as a local philanthropist, even if he has to con his way in!

S19/E4 - 25 January 1998 "Oh Howard, We Should Get One of Those": Could Wesley's new invention help Compo get close to Nora Batty than ever before?

S19/E5 - 1 February 1998 "The Suit That Attracts Blondes": Glenda gives one of Barry's suits away to a jumble sale, because she thinks it may cause him to be unfaithful- it soon falls into Compo's hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series, confused releases February 25, 2013
Hello Summer Winers,
Well I'm back to give you another hopefully correct listing of this '98 series contents. I first should correct my '97 listing review where I listed the '97 contents. 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 then BBC America listing of the '97 release contents 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 this 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.

I don't believe I need to extoll the virtues of this series again, it's one of the very best. I only wish these releases by BBC America would make crystal clear exactly what the episode contents are, both on the package itself, when you get it in your hands and list correctly the episodes on their own website and here on Amazon too. Here then is another quote from BBC America's website as to the contents of this new '98 season's release. If this is wrong, blame BBC America, now to the quotation of the episode listing:

There Goes the Groom - After drinking too much at a friend's stag do, Foggy passes out and is whisked off to Blackpool by the amorous village post-mistress. The last we hear is that she mistakenly believes he has proposed to her, and we never find out if he managed to wriggle out of it.

Last of the Summer Wine is the best of British comedy. I watched all of the 1998 episodes on PBS over the years but wanted a CD copy to watch these wonderfully funny programs again. The CDs I received are of very high quality video and audio.

Always a pleasure to watch with family. These characters could only be cast in England. Seems like we in the US don't like real looking people... ;0)

My husband and I love the characters and there adventures. It is amazing the way the English can take
a relatively quiet story and turn it into an adventure.

My wife and I prefer the dry British humor to what is being broadcast on our cable channels. We look forward to each year added to the sets available and are waiting for one pending availability order now.

I am including my thoughts about the entire series in this one video. The innocence of the characters' outlook and the everyday quality of the setting and stories are most enjoyable. I think of them as the British version of The Three Stooges. They often have me laughing out loud and this year (with 4 deaths in my family in 6 months), their humor has been invaluable.

5.0 out of 5 stars COMEDY OF ERRORS WE CAN ENJOY April 30, 2013
Verified Purchase
MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE COMEDY SERIES. I LOVE THE FACT THEY ARE WHAT SOME OF US WOULD LIKE TO BE AND THE SHOW BRINGS POPULAR ACTORS/ACTRESSES OF AGE TO CONT'D APPEARANCES BEFORE THE WORLD AND DOESN'T SHOVE THEM ASIDE WHEN A SHOW IS NO LONGER BEING FILMED.. IT HAS SO MANY FROM OTHER SHOWS I ENJOY THAT YOU WON'T FORGET YOUR FAVORITES' . UNFORTUNATELY MOST HAVE PASSED NOW, BUT THIS SERIES LETS THEM LIVE ON. ONCE YOU SEE A FEW EPISODES, YOU CAN'T HELP BUT WANT TO SEE MORE.
