Mind Your Language - finally!

"Yes! Almost 28 years after it first aired, this gem of a show comes to DVD - for North American fans anyway. In case you don't know, Mind Your Language is the British comedy about a young, inexperienced teacher Jeremy Brown who tries to teach English to a bunch of adult internationals at night school, while contending with the very stiff and proper night school principal, Miss Courtney. Playing off stereotypes and completely politically incorrect, the results are hilarious to say the least.
This DVD edition contains Series 1 - 3, which aired originally from 1977 - 1979. There are a total of 26 episodes here, and from what I can tell, the DVD set is actually 3 episodes short of the total 29 episodes that originally aired. Series 4 which originally aired in 1986, is not included. And if you are looking for extras and special features, you won't find it here either. But who cares? No complaints here - the picture is sharp and clear, and of course the humor is unbeatable. I love it!"
Return Of Fond Memories

"I was telling my husband about this show and he said he didn't know about it at all. Not sure if it was aired here in Canada(I've been here only 3 years..I am from the far east). So when I saw it here on Amazon, I thought...hmm..it is about time !!.MYL isn't only a good sitcom, it is to me a portion of a fond memory that is stored in my head forever. It is about a group of very different people in a classroom, learning that one language - English. The teacher was a good-natured guy(salute to Mr. Barry Evans who died in 1997) and was quite funny sometimes and often got himself confused after talking to some of his students.What I like about it is the natural way all of them portrayed about themselves and each other. Some of them would often come into disagreements due to their race and country and background but in the end they always stood up for each other. A show like this if made nowadays, I believe would arise some dissatisfaction among people but back then people were able to take it and much more importantly learned from it !. Makes me realize how people have changed...However I am glad the DVD is out!. I wish ALL episodes are in it though but I'm quite happy for most of them are. Sometimes When I heard the opening theme, I would close my eyes and I could see my family sitting in front of the TV back home, quite late at night waiting to see what humor we could get that night.
How I miss those days !!...."
