Product Description

One Foot in the Grave: Season One (DVD)

The BAFTA-nominated series about the growing pains of growing old is finally on DVD! Forced into early retirement, Victor Meldrew optimistically tries to adjust to years of leisure with his wife Margaret. If only events -- coincidences, misunderstandings, bureaucratic inefficiencies and sheer bad luck -- didn't conspire against him.

Think of One Foot in the Grave as a British version of Curb Your Enthusiasm: Cranky, misanthropic Victor Mildrew (the wonderfully bilious Richard Wilson) perceives himself as the only sane man in a world out to drive him mad--a world in which yoga instructors abruptly keel over, a dead cat appears in his freezer, a man in a bee costume uses his loo, and an escaped snake crawls into his luggage. Of course, Victor can dish it out too; he gives a political candidate a severe tongue-lashing and has a vacuum cleaner duel with an old man who's even more cantankerous than Victor. Only his long-suffering wife Margaret (sweet-tempered Annette Crosbie, Calendar Girls, An Unsuitable Job for a Woman) provides Victor with any serenity--even as he destroys hers! Wilson had a long career before One Foot in the Grave (including the series Tutti Frutti, costarring with Emma Thompson and Robbie Coltrane), but this show became a phenomenon, giving a voice of outrage to the disenfranchised (young and old alike) in Margaret Thatcher's political era. But politics were always secondary to humor, and anyone with a taste for scathing invective and madcap plots will bask in Wilson's indignity. Written by David Remnick, creator of Jonathan Creek. --Bret Fetzer
