A touching finale to a great Britcom

"If you have followed this series on your local PBS station from 1992-2002, or on DVD from 2002 to the present, you will enjoy this show. It's roughly an hour in length (most PBS stations show it for 90 minutes to 2 hours to milk the pledge drives) making it equal in length to 2 episodes, featuring Lionel (Geoffrey Palmer) and Jean (Judi Dench) now in an empty apartment deciding what's next (pardon my West Wing) while flashing back to some of there most memorable moments of the series. Also included are 3 episodes from other discs, the episode from Series 1 where Lionel and Jean spend their first weekend together and find the old inn where they first loved, the episode from Series 3 when Lionel's father Rocky and his long time love Madge get married, and Jean and Lionel are in the ceremony, and the last episode of Series 6 when Lionel surprises Jean with a trip to Barbados to help her recover from a dull week at the office (at the time this disc was released, this episode had NOT been released on DVD, as it came out between the releases of Series 5 and 6). The bad side is with the release of the Series 8&9 2 bagger on August 30th, this episode will be included with the Series 9 disc (According to "my spies" (sorry Jim Perry), series 9 only had 4 episodes not counting this one). So realistically (as of Labor Day) with the entire series available on 11 discs, in 4 2 disc sets and 3 single disc sets, or an attractive 11 piece megaset (coming out the same day as the last set), this disc becomes simply window dressing. Of course until the 8&9 2 bagger's picture was displayed (just today), there was no way to know, so many people (me included) bought this when it was first available. My advice, if you have none of the other discs, buy the 11 bagger. If you have some of the others, finish your colllection with the other "complete series" titles, and you will get this when you get the 8&9 2 bagger. This way you save duplicating 4 (counting this one) episodes."

"Would that the producers would have spent their time and energy on season SIX, SEVEN, and EIGHT of this truly great Britcom series than to waste their time producing this overview of past glories. AS TIME GOES BY is by my way of thinking the BEST of all the Britcoms that have come across the pond. GIVE US THE REMAINING SEASONS rather that this "Best of . . ." abbreviation. It may be a good introduction for those who have not seen the series on TV but your money is better spent on buying one of the seasons already available on DVD or catching whatever you local PBS station may be using as a filler in its broadcasting schedule. Go for the full blown series, you won't be disappointed."
Buy the Series 8 & 9 Instead

"This DVD is unnecessary.
All material on this DVD is found on others. The Series 8 & 9 DVD has the special and the three episodes are on other Series DVD.
This was released prior to the Series 8 & 9 DVD.
Don't waste your money. If you are a true fan but the complete set."

"We avidly have viewed the first six seasons as they have been released on DVD - I was disappointed with this offering only because it covers series not yet released on DVD/VHS and eliminated any element of surprise regarding the forthcomng romances of Judy and Sandy. We started to view this DVD but decided to wait until they release the final three seasons to "Remember this""
