Movie Reviews

Pretty good stuff
Andre M. | Mt. Pleasant, SC United States | 04/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Not only is this a pretty good compilation of British TV comedy from the 60s, it also gives you a peek at what inspired a lot of American TV comedy in the 70s. Although they're not listed, "Steptoe and Son" and "Til Death Us Do Part," the Brit-coms that inspired "Sanford and Son" and "All in the Family" appear (the latter is unfortuantely more annoying than humoruous, although one could clearly see the roots of the Bunkers without any likeability). But we also get to see clips from "That Was The week that Was" (the inspiration for Laugh-In and the Smothers Bros. show) and the young Monty Python troupe as well as oldschool Brit comedians like Tommy Cooper and Morecombe and Wise who never hit it that big here in the States. But either way, while the thick cockney accents may require repeated viewing for some American viewers, it's still pretty good stuff for a larf or two."
Golden Years of British Comedy
Peter E. Nelson | 03/24/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Regardless of the low price, this album is barely worth its cost. It is a collection of 2-3 minute snippets totalling little more than an hour, which is especially annoying when one realizes that the technology permits one+ hour per side. Accordingly, each snippet barely introduces the performers, when it at minimum it would have been possible to permit at least 4-5 performers to do more complete acts. And, to add to the frustration, most of the performers can not be found on other comercially-available DVDs, at least through Amazon."
