"I Don't Believe It!" - Victor's coming to DVD
Smash B | USA | 12/20/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Meet Victor Meldrew, who seems to notice everything annoying in life and feels the need to constantly comment on it, and his long suffering wife, Margaret, who is weary of Victor's diatribes. Along with the Meldrews, you meet a host of friends and neighbors that add to the side splitting fun. If you have never seen this Britcom before, you've truly missed a masterpiece. This is definitely one to add to your collection. For those interested, here is an episode guide:


1. Alive and Buried.

Victor Meldrew, upon turning 60, is forcibly retired when he is replaced by a talking machine.

2. The Big Sleep

Rampant hypochondria brings on a near death experience for Victor.

3. The Valley of Fear

Victor finds himself the victim of a mugging and a vandalism attack so he decides to hold a crime prevention meeting.

4. I'll Retire to Bedlam

Victor encounters a day of one trial after another when he is locked in the shed for three hours, forced to keep his eyes closed all day after an appointment with the optometrist, and then forced to babysit!

5. The Eternal Quadrangle

Margaret is displeased when Victor takes up a hobby - painting nudes.

6. The Return of the Speckled Band

After helping Mrs. Warboy's through a food poisoning attack and having problems with the electricity man, the Meldrews feel they have earned a relaxing vacation? But will they get one?!
The Best!

"This is by far one of the funniest british sitcoms I've ever seen! And they finally came out with the dvd! (Even vhs has been difficult to find in past years!) Believe me, this is one of the 'best kept secrets' by the BBC! (Also check out 'Waiting for God', it's just as hilarious.) A wonderful value!"
The Most Irritated Guy on the Planet!

"Most comdey is based upon irritation. We like to laugh at the irritated. Victor Meldrew it the most irritated person on planet Earth, and therefore quite possibly the funniest. Don't watch while drinking a beverege (unless you like it coming out your nose!)."
L. Massaar | Vancouver, WA | 03/19/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The character of pessimist Victor Mildrew is hysterical; a show like this could only have come from the UK.

Great acting for all involved too... Richard Wilson & Annette Crosbie (her character deserves a medal) and by many others, including comedian Angus Deayton (some may remember him as the hysterically funny and topical host of the news satire show "Have I Got News For You?" in the late '80s).

Previously only available on VHS and audio-tape, this series on DVD is long-awaited!"
