Movie Reviews

The Best TV Series Ever!
J. Tweedie | 06/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've watched the entire series a number of times on PBS and BBC America. VHS or DVD videos of all series now available have a prominent place in my video library. If you are totally fed up with the foul language, gratitious sex and nudity and the absolute stupidity of 99% of American TV fare this series is for you. The subtle humor, tenderness, and great acting by Judi Dench, Geoffrey Palmer and the rest of the cast make for an unforgettable story that will have you rolling on the floor and/or shedding a few tears. I admit to being completely hooked!"

"These are the final two seasons plus wrap up special for one of the best dramadies. Jean and Lionel are lost loves that find each other again after many years. They fall in love again and finally married.

In series 8 & 9 many of the long running storylines are completed. Including will Alister pop the question to Judith and ditto for Harry and Sandy.

We spent many years getting to know these people and finally can be happy all is resolved.

If you have not seen this series or just started watching. Buy all nine series and have a long weekend. I had to wait five years to see the end. (And I was lucky and saw the final episode premiere in London a year before PBS).

This series is the cornerstone in Judi's career. She became a movie star during this show but never gave up on this show.

Jeffrey Palmer has been a cornerstone in the Britcom industry for thirty years (His first starring role was in Butterflies which is also just coming out on DVD).

The featured cast includes vetran actor Frank Middlemass as Lionel's free spirited father, Philip Bretherton as Lionel's playboy publisher and Judith's on again, off again boyfriend and Moira Brooker as Jean's daughter Judith.

Know that this is a show that will make you laugh then cry the laugh again."

"What can be said about ATGB it is a lot better than most of the American fare that we "yanks" have to deal with. The show is subtlety at it's best it contains no harsh language (no bullocks) no over explicit sex just good clean britfun. It is much better than Friends, but not as good as Sienfield. The trend in American TV is fat balding guy in his 40's married to hot slim wife in her 30's. You could never get a show about two people who have been apart longer than the regular TV couples have been married or living,
If you see the very first episode (I suggest you take some time of work for a rather good ATGB marathon) then look at lets say season 6 episode 7 (that is the episode in which she finally saw the letter) you will see the evolution of a show who writing was a master of the old school style where two people can talk without the usual! @#$%*&^%$%.
Enough Anglophilia!

"This single series has done more to convince Americans of their intellectual inferiority to Britain than anything since the invention of the Oxfordshire accent. The fact of the matter is this series is not just astounding relative to American television. It's astounding relative to British television.

There is an old aphorism of American football that states, "When you get the ball into the endzone, you should act like you've been there before." As Time Goes By is television for people who have been there before. It's for real grown-ups, not kids who've recently discovered the magic of genitalia. It doesn't matter what your national identity is, this stuff is good.

Also, hilarious."
