I am so glad to see Amazon offering this. I had watched Dave Allen since I was a youngster. I think it helped formulate my unique and slightly dark sense of humor. Dave Allen was quite an influence on me, and I have been looking for anything I could get for many years. It was originally a Brit/BBC series that I was able to enjoy on PBS just before Dr. Who. The other reviewer (Jim) described him quite well. I would just add that his sense of humor was for the thinking man, or woman. It questioned establishments without being non-conformist. In my opinion he was the greatest Brit comic I have ever seen since he was the first one I've seen that was actually funny. I just wish I could get his whole collection on DVD. Please Amazon, help me!

I recall watching his series on TV.I bought this and i think there should be more releases from him.You get lots of laughs from this very funny person.He had alot of religious jokes,but it was all in good fun.Those confession jokes were always hillarious.

Normally I can play a region 2 PAL disk on my computer. However, some sort of weird UDF encoding was used on this disk on everything except the copyright warning and the BBC banner flying across the screen. Those two things played normally. Big deal. As for the main feature, that was a pixilated mess visually, with screechy audio. I've tried a few different programs to try to produce something playable from it, with no luck. On June 15, 2015, I wrote to BBC Worldwide, asking what the compatibility problem was. On August 6, 2015, they finally responded, denying any responsibility and not answering my compatibility question. Their response: "Our DVDs may not be compatible with all players or PCs. We would advise you return your DVD to Amazon for a replacement or check for a suitable Region 1 version. Kind regards BBC DVD Support"
So they're clueless as to how much time can elapse before you can not longer make an Amazon return. They respond with the speed of an elderly snail. And they are clueless as to their products, suggesting I obtain a region 1 version of the product, whereas they do not make a region 1 version of the product - or take the insane step of having it replaced with the same thing. It's a pity because Dave Allen was a comic genius.

One DVD of Dave Allen At Large is not enough, and this one tells only a tiny fraction of the story! They need to start releasing an entire set of full-season DVD's of this wonderful long-running blockbuster comedy programme in the same way many of the greatest and most popular TV programmes have got after they were introduced on DVD. What would turn out to be his crowning achievement, Dave Allen At Large, which ran from 1971 to 1979 and have over 200 episodes, would become an international sensation on the telly as a groundbreaking extravagant sketch comedy programme that became a blockbuster ratings hit and create an electrifying and bold form of original comedy that have led a timeless comical legacy of laughs, screams, gut-busting hilarity, thought-provoking madcap commentary and plenty of belly laughs--all done in the great traditional music hall repertoire. While Dave Allen At Large drew absolute praise for it's nerve-wracking comic sketches and wacky send-ups on political hypocrisy, mankind, society and the catholic church, the programme even drew additional controversy for the outspoken master comic because of the nature and his obnoxious characterizations of politics and the catholic church to whom many have viewed as a threat (He was also Britain's most controversial comedian). However, despite all this controversy, Dave Allen At Large went on to become a bonafide five star masterpiece in television comedy and one of Britain's greatest and most popular comedy programmes. Now let's have Dave Allen At Large seen in it's complete form in a set of full-season episodes, because not only will it give fresh new light on the programme, but will bring a lasting lease on life for Dave Allen's groundbreaking comic artistry that will always remain as resilient and absolutely side-splittingly funny as ever.
