Best comedy sketches I've ever seen!
20 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

These TV shows were shown on TV in Iceland probably around the same time as they were running in the UK. Sadly it was on a channel that I didn't have access to but I managed to record a few of their episodes. Now these recordings are the gems of my VHS collection and when my VCR tore one of them about two years ago, I decided it was time to somehow put them all in digital format. I was not going to lose another tape like that.

I don't agree with Steve that they only "had their moments". It's true that each season was slightly different. Their humour became slightly darker but they always mixed in enough of their old style jokes. And the way they built up a series of jokes that might span not just one episode but a few, I thought was brilliant.

About a year ago, I set out on a quest to try and find this material on the internet and was able to get a hold of a few tapes on the Amazon Market. But it was not without disappointments and not cheap! From one vendor (Nick March, Deleted UK Videos) I got two covers containing the same tape! I sent him an e-mail to which he never replied.

I even tried contacting the BBC but got the information that they didn't have any plans of releasing these shows. I asked if I could possibly get in touch with them personally but never got a reply.

Anyway, I truly hope these shows will be released, not just as a one "Best of" DVD but in it's entirety. I will be the first one to buy the whole thing!
