Hopefully as love Second Thoughts, Watching and Surgical Spirit. Hopefully the before 2009 indicates that 2009 will see a release of some if not all.

But IMO if they are wary of putting out remining series of Second Thoughts or Surigical Spirt why not just release the rest as a boxset... Anyway getting carried away they may still happen in 09.


btw cheers for enquiring :)

A box set is an even greater financial risk for them.

Suppose it would be but if they only did a limited run of roughly the number of S 1 DVD's sold.....oh who am I kidding it will never happen.

And still. Get Some In! Series 2 is soon to come out but the Network release I can't wait for is The Galton & Simpson Playhouse, a Seven Of One style series in which seven one-off episodes are written by Galton and Simpson. Highlights of these include Richard Briers taking his wife to a wife swapping party without her noticing, and Leonard Rossiter starring in the brilliant I Tell You It's Burt Reynolds which I've seen the Paul Merton remake of and was very impressed. But the one I'm really looking forward for is Car Along The Pass where Arthur Lowe, my all time favourite comic actor, goes on holiday to the Austrian Alps and a German tries a conversation with him:
"I'm Heinze from Baden Baden."
"Oh yes, I'm Duckworth from Twickenham Twickenham."

I had a word with him next door. He's gone on about the abuse and that. How when he went for a walk up the farm to see the cat and the pig, he slipped on the dog shit, broke his leg, they put a pin in it and you bit his face. And you're an alcoholic. And my brother lives in the club and he's gonna shoot you.... Angelos Epithemiou- 27th July 2010.

That is a show where I wouldn't mind getting the first series to see what it is like. I've seen the christmas special, but don't remember much about it. May get the first series, it looks very good and with a bit of watching, I could see myself likeing it.

I've got the Christmas Special of Two's Company somewhere. I'm going to dig it out and give it another watch tonight to decide whether or not to buy the DVD.

Just watched the Christmas Special. Not Laugh out Loud but extremely well written and well acted. Will definetly be interested in checking out the first series.

I've not seen the special, but I love what else of it I've seen.

Another great looking 1960s sitcom Network release coming on the 4th May. Pardon The Expression, Series 1. It stars Arthur Lowe as Leonard Swindley, a character he played in Coronation Street. Here Swindley is given his own sitcom spin-off. Most of the scripts by Powell and Driver. So I'll luck forward to this one, a sitcom starring my all time favourite actor, Arthur Lowe.
Buy at Play
