"This british sitcom from the 1970's is absolutely wonderful. The title character performed by Michael Crawford is one of the best. His character, Frank Spencer ranks at the top of my list among the funniest television characters of all time!!!
Keep in mind that this is OLD television, so the picture and sound quality is not perfect. However, don't let that keep you from investing your money in this set. You will enjoy it and you will get many laughs from it.
This is a hilarious show that all should see, if they have not already seen it!!!
MICHAEL CRAWFORD IS THE TRUE GENIUS IN THIS GEM OF A SITCOM!!!!
So move over Mr. Bean- Frank Spencer is the new man in town!!!!"
Great show - poor packaging

"The show is a classic. Everything everyone else has written is spot on. Unfortunately, this three disc set only contains 11 episodes. The British version has all 28 plus the x-mas specials. If you have a multi-region dvd, don't waste your money on this."
Brilliant Comedy. Brilliant Actor.

"I have been a Michael Crawford fan for years, but still had not seen this show. So when I heard the series was being released on DVD, I finally took a chance and bought it. I am very glad I did!Even though I'm usually not a fan of slapstick comedy, I was literally wiping away tears of laughter. I could not believe this was the same Michael I saw live as the Phantom of the Opera. He's so adorably goofy as Frank Spencer. Everything from the stunts to his comedic timing, even facial expressions were hilarious. I will definitely be watching this over and over again.Without a doubt, this series further proves what a versatile talent he truly is."
Never take the Phantom serious again...

"Frank Spencer is part of British Culture. No comedian in the 80s or 90s could go long without a reference to him... mmm.. Betty...
Anyway Crawford got typecast from it and so he prevented significant distribution of these shows here so that people would know him as the Phantom. Which is a pity as they are so much better than some of the shows that did make it here.
But finally some of the best are available. Slapstick humour that is almost perfect.
I'll take one star off as the transfer quality is not that good and no extras but still.....
(Secret note to watch out for. Whenever he is doing a 'dangerous' stunt himself he has black leather gloves on. If they are missing its a double or not dangerous at all. Just watch how few of those there are. He did 95% of the stunts himself.)"
