Come visit Grace Brothers during the holidays, where there's plenty of laughter in store with this unbelievably quirky contingent of sales clerks. Nothing makes Christmas as special as stuffing four hilarious episodes of this classic comedy in your stocking. Each episode is presented uncut and has been lovingly restored. Also included is a never before seen "On Set Interview"!

The holiday season bring s out the best in Grace Brothers' department store: Bickering, bribery, lechery, snits, and of course silly musical numbers while dressed in ridiculous costumes. Classic Britcom Are You Being Served? thrives on the comedy of petty squabbles and this collection of Christmas-themed episodes is prime stuff. The four episodes have been plucked from seasons 1-7; in one episode, the staff is forced to dress as fairy-tale characters for a holiday promotion; in another, they try to entertain young Mr. Grace by doing a children's ballet; in another, they apologize for not joining a strike by putting on a full-sized Punch-and-Judy show---and in the remaining episode, the temptation of a large bonus leads the entire staff to dress up as Father Christmas. The pleasure in such hijinks, as with most sitcoms, depends heavily on the audience's indulgence of the characters, but the cast of Are You Being Served? was rich with goofy charm (the effervescent John Inman is in particularly top form). A perverse Christmas display unit, from "The Father Christmas Affair," remains one of the show's all-time comic highlights. --Bret Fetzer

Keeping in mind however, that British humour is somewhat different than that of the USA in as much as they take more risks with gestures and language. But also to note, there is no vulgarity of any kind that I could see and if there was, it would be in the Are you being served tradition...
The sellers communications were great and I would buy from them again.
