Great Compilation!! *and a warning to parents about content on an extra*,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mr. Bean: Ultimate Collection (DVD)
I viewed all the episodes and they seem to be in working order. Glitch free and the picture looked good. Sound was fine. I report this because it seems that a lot of dvd releases of tv shows are done crappily that there are lots of justified complaints.
The extras on the 3rd disc of the tv show series were worth viewing. The documentary about how Mr. Bean started was especially cool to see. **The warning to anyone who would like to know, especially maybe for parents, is that the documentary has shots of female frontal nudity that come up without warning.** That footage is from an opening from a comedy series Rowan was a part of in his earlier career. Thought I'd mention it since no other reviewer commented on this. And no, I don't need someone getting smart at me about how other countries are liberal with their tv programming and nudity. I know. I just didn't expect that material on a Mr. Bean dvd set and thought others might like to know.

Thanks for the warning....I have kids that love Mr Bean but I can make sure the 3rd disc is not for them to see.

Wow!!! Thanks for an honest report. We try to keep our home G rated as best as we can. We can just skip the R stuff.

America lol. The only country where people love watching movies filled with violence but think the human body is evil. The world was so much better before christians forced their beliefs upon everyone long ago... I'm so glad I live in europe. I hope you're not one of the people who force your children to follow your religion instead of educating them and letting them choose for themselves when they are old enough.
This movie can't have full nudity or it would be rated adults only. If you're concerned about showing it to young children, you're a good parent. But everyone who's reached puberty should be allowed to watch it, otherwise you can seriously mess with their mental development and traumatize them for the future if you teach them that nudity (even non-sexual) is "bad" or evil or whatever.

Moonchild (the writer of this review) made this very clear.
