Longing for release on DVD - even VHS will do!
16 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

The story, while highly amusing, is nevertheless somewhat poignant. The characters are totally real and believable, and the acting first-class.

I absolutely love this series and am at a loss to understand why it has not been released on either VHS or DVD. That it has not been is especially odd given that Kingsley Amis's novel won the Booker Prize in 1986, his 'Take a Girl Like You' was telecast in 2000 and Andrew Davies wrote both screenplays.

I cannot fathom why those who determine what is and is not released for public purchase don't take the opportunity to 'cash in' on the peripherals of what's 'hot'. I shall, however, continue to monitor IMDb and hope for better things.

I taped it when it appeared on Australia's national broadcaster (ABC), was magnanimous enough to lend it to a work colleague who promptly lost it - I suspect, to add insult to injury, without watching it!
