Movie Reviews

One of the Best Comedies Ever
ShortStoryAddict | Pittsburgh, PA United States | 02/23/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're considering Season 5, then you already know what a great show this is. I just felt the need to negate another very misleading review. Firstly, the comedy is very, very broad (not dry) yet all reasonable in context. The storylines are interwoven so brilliantly that everything, perversely, makes sense. Secondly, Victor is not a grumpy old man; he's actually a lovely, pleasant man who's constantly baffled and frustrated by an inconsiderate, vulgar world; his mistake is that, instead of ignoring this world, he chooses to confront it in hopes of making change. Thirdly, this series is most certainly not especially for older people. I began watching it just after it began. I wasn't old then, and I'm not even middle-aged now. This is a series for people who love farce and appreciate great writing and acting. And unlike so many comedies, you really won't see what's coming until it's there and you're howling with laughter. Great, great, great show."
Dry British Humor

(5 out of 5 stars)

"One Foot in the Grave Series is, I feel one of the Great British Series that I wish was still running along with a lot of others. I personally feel that these series are more for the older adult who can see the sense of humor in a grouchy old man and a very tolerant wife. Humorous and entertaining. Definitely recommend this for middle to older age group."
One Foot in the Grave (General)
Midnight | Indiana | 04/21/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you are not aware of the trials of Victor Meldrew and his long suffering wife Margret, then I suggest you become acquainted with these two. I learned of One Foot in the Grave atop Whistler's Mountain near Jasper, Alberta. My wife and I were vacationing when we met a couple from the UK. We discussed many things and the conversation soon came round to British sitcoms. I, having been a long time fan of British comedy, mention several that I knew of, which of course were ancient history for the couple from the UK. They suggested "One Foot in the Grave" and I ordered the first season. There has been no turning back since. We continue to enjoy the series, as much as we enjoy Seinfeld, as a comparison. I highly recommend this series. Once you get hooked' you'll never want it to end."
