The BBC television series Ground Force is a whole lot more than a gardening show. Like Trading Spaces, the team has 48 hours to complete their transformation, usually turning a weedy back garden into a thing of beauty in the space of 48 hours. In between this miraculous accomplishment, there is much banter, the occasional argument, and even a rare, full-blown snit. The team is marvelous, the projects imaginative, and the results always spectacular. It's a wonderful show, much more interesting than the subject implies. Great views of Britain abound as well. However, this DVD just whets the appetite for more. DVD releases by season would be much appreciated!

...a "Best Of" DVD is not enough!!! The Ground Force team is amazing -- and especially so during the Titchmarsh years. I would love to sit and watch these episodes over and over again. Alan, Charlie, and Tommy are not only garden makeover geniuses, but they've winkled their way into the hearts of BBC America fans. Please, please, please release Ground Force in season by season compilations!

This is a must for anyone who loved the Ground Force team of characters. As a Brit now living in the US I craved the famous Britsh humor that the Ground Force team delivers in spades (excuse the pun!).

This DVD is a comprehensive compilation of the team funny moments including many clips that never made it to final cuts of the shows. Interspersed with the best moments clips is the last episode that Titchmarsh hosted. Attention is also given to each of the team members with equal fondness. Including each members favorite gardens.

This is a perfect DVD if you want to reminisce. However if you are looking for episodes of gardening before and afters this is not the DVD for you. Saying that it gave me just what I wanted, a trip down memory lane! This DVD is just a hair under two hours of great entertainment!

Enjoy

I love Ground Force... but I really want to buy the series... This DVD is just a collection of the cast fooling around with bits here and there of them doing several different lawns. It's better than nothing.... but doesn't really give a good overall view of what this show is all about.

I loved Ground Force when it came on BBC America, so I wanted some episodes, but this is just the highlights-no gardening going on!!!
Not what I wanted.

I want more full hour long shows!. I so enjoyed the interaction of all on the show. Please bring it back. BBC lost me as a viewer when that show left the air.

Thanks Lee Culligan

I miss this show. Though the DVD is a brief run through the shows it is so nice to visit with these three (really four) again. You'll remember all the locations, all the shows and their unique brand of shenanigans.
