More Fun at Grace Brothers,
This review is from: Are You Being Served? Vol. 3 (DVD)
Another excellent volume from the AYBS? series, also available in two sets featuring every episode from its ten-season run that every fan must own! On this DVD, the demeaning ways of Grace Brothers are showcased when the staff must sign a book to take their coffee and lavatory breaks in "Coffee Morning." Mr. Mash leads a protest against such archaic rules. In "Up Captain Peacock" (one of my all-time favorites), the granting of executive washroom and dining room privileges to Grace Brothers' most decorated floorwalker become a sore spot with Mr. Grainger. Mr. Lucas attempts to feign illness to spend a day with his "bird" (young woman, in Brit lingo) in "Cold Store." In "Wedding Bells," Young Mr. Grace announces to the dept. he is ready to take a bride and then asks Mrs. Slocombe to meet him in his office. Could Mrs. Slocombe be the queen of Grace Brothers (who did you think it would be, Mr. Humphries)? "German Week," where the staff go Deutsch to sell their German merchandise is a fan favorite because of the costumes. Finally, in "Shoulder to Shoulder," ladies underwear and gentlemen's trousers must intertwine while the ladies department is being remodeled. A very solid group episodes originally aired in March and April 1975. The DVD has many fun details. The menu pages are very creative with alternating photos of, in this case, Miss Brahms. A lift conductor even takes you to each episode! Of course, every fan will eventually want the entire 2 sets of this hilarious series, so go buy them now!
