All on the DVDs is with SUBTITLES, even the Behind the Scenes Bonus (45 min).
CHRISTMAS LIGHTS: The fun is shot in 2004 Manchester, with Colin (Robson Green-`Reckless' `Reckless the Sequel') and pal Howie (Mark Benton-`Land Girls' `Scoop') the bickering boys in adult bodies, neighbors, and co-workers. They are married to sisters but the harmony is far from perfect. Rivalry to the nth degree. A British Griswald frenzy. Jokes like a `wanking Santa' makes it older youth to adult fare. Christmas Ho-Ho-HORROR that covers 3 years. 70 min.
NORTHERN LIGHTS: 6 episodes (2006) average about 47 minutes each
Episode 1 Annual company dinner/dance divides our 2 pals

CITY LIGHTS: 6 episodes (2007) that have a unifying crime plot, continual complex relationship (including sex), and all the emotional conflict of 2 couples living too close. There's ample humor throughout.Read more ›
TOUCHING EVIL was this reviewer’s introduction to Green’s talents. That fine, intense series was released in North America by Acorn Media and clearly the response was positive. “Give us more Robson Green,” you could hear the fans crying.
Judging by interviews with Green on Youtube, the man is hilarious in person and it is no wonder that his comedic skills are every bit as competent as his dramatic abilities. This is plainly on display in the box set NORTHERN LIGHTS, which includes two movies and two series, the entire collection of programs featuring Green as Colin Armstrong and the wonderful, equally-gifted actor Mark Benton as his best friend, Howard Scott.
2004 – Movie, CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
2006 – 6 episode series NORTHERN LIGHTS
2007 – 6 episode series CITY LIGHTS
2008 – Movie, CLASH OF THE SANTAS
This charming series, though not without moments of drama, is a marvelously witty examination of lifelong friendship, male one-upmanship, love and the kind of typically adolescent but somehow charming humour that exists between friends who were closer than brothers right from their earliest school days.
This candid examination of male friendship is a breath of fresh air. Colin and Howard are two regular blokes who have wives, kids, jobs, hobbies and a tendency towards petty jealousy in common. The show is brilliantly written and affords everyone in the ensemble cast an opportunity to shine. Aside from some political correctness in one episode that comes across as preachy, the story threads remain believable (though only just, in some cases) and enjoyable.Read more ›
A real treat for all those who enjoy such classic slices of TV gold as `Clocking Off' and `Playing the Field' - and a gem for those not yet familiar with them!
Don't suppose there are any plans for a new series?! ... Pleeeeeeease???!!! ;D

I think this was very good up til City Lights and Clash of the Santas. I thought the characters were no longer consistent in their behaviors. The first part is excellent. Read morePublished on December 8, 2013 by K. O'Gorman
