BTW, I recently brought one disc (off series 3) to my mum... She just sat there for 3 hours (six episodes) without moving in front of TV and then demanded I bring the rest of DVDs as well!

I love the same sitcom that my mom ...(and my wife didn't like it).

Boggles your mind.

Judi Dench's performance in this was simply electritrifying.

Inoffensive, amiably twee MOR this show. Good to see Dame Judi and Geoffrey Palmer having a show to pay their mortgage, meaning they can concentrate on some proper acting. Nothing particularly wrong with it, I suppose. Sitcom for people who like carpets a lot. :)

There are probably lots of younger people who prefer As Time Goes By or Last Of Summer Wine to for example, Little Britain, but don't like to admit it for fear of being ridiculed which is stupid IMO. I love Summer Wine meself, esp any episode with Foggy Compo and Clegg.

I bought the 1-4 series boxset from Amazon.co.uk a while ago. She watched that, and with subtitles - despite the fact that she is teacher of English.

I like As Time Goes By simply to have it on in the background. I wouldn't say I'd watch it for fun, but for the "niceness" everyone else has talked about. Last Of The Summer Wine makes me sad - probably because they're all old guys with no life and no real friends other than each other. And, I hate fake harmonicas and secondly that pervy old guy just bugs me. I'll watch it though for Peter Sallis (in case he says "cheese!" or "toast!").

Compared to current comedy offerings by the Beeb this was brilliantly written and acted. probably not a good comparison though.

Funny that as I was holding a copy of the Reunion Specials in my hand only days ago, albeit the original DVD of it but still available from other retailers, same thing, different cover.
