Long time fan finds happiness and disappointment,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Peter Cook & Dudley Moore: The Best of... What's Left of... NotOnly... But Also... (DVD)
I have been watching Pete and Dud (including their stop on Broadway, where I enjoyed myself more than should be legal) for a long time, and have purchased most of what has been available. I have the VHS "Best of.." and now this. I realize a "best of" is not comprehensive, and while acknowledging that many fine moments are captured here, no reviewer has mentioned the painful omission of "The Glidd of Glood", my second favorite bit from the VHS. One can only hope that this is successful enough to goad the BBC into releasing another hunk of what they have.
So, no need to repeat what others here say. There are several screamingly funny sketches that will make anyone's all time top 100, much to enjoy, an overabundance of the Dudley Moore Trio, and a few bombs that just don't work. (And I wish that idiotic laugh track had been deleted. Ouch..... it is painful.) Overall though, way more good than bad. If you don't get fourteen bucks worth of entertainment from Superthunderstingcar you are comatose. Buy this to help satisfy my selfish desire to get the remainder unleashed some day....
