    So what’s the difference between this and the old version?, August 14, 2009

    So I was trying to decide if I should buy this to replace my older AYBS? DVDs. The problem was there was almost no information about this release on the web. I finally decided to order it and take my chances.

    So what’s new? Just ONE thing: the packaging. This set takes up MUCH less room on your shelf than the old collection (it’s about 2 inches wide). Everything else is the same as far as I can tell… the dvd’s are exact copies of what was already released (I was kinda hoping for less annoying menus, oh well).

    One minor problem is with the slim double-DVD cases: they don’t hold the discs in place securely, and discs will often fall out when opening the case.

    So the verdict? If you like “Are You Being Served?” and don’t already own the collection, this is a very good deal… I paid much more for this set several years back. Do you already own the older set? Then stick with it, unless the shelf space that it takes up is driving you crazy.

    Some years ago I came across reruns of this hillarious comedy on PBS and fell in love with it. Mollie Sugden was being interviewed as part of a fundraiser if memory serves.

    What a pleasant surprise to find the entire collection of episodes plus extensive interviews with the cast that were done before Mollie Sugden’s and Wendy Richards’ deaths. The interviews with and documentaries of the cast members are on Volume 7 of this set.

    Are You Being Served is a classic sitcom, filled with laughter, innuendo and one-liners that made the players famous. Sugden’s famous (or infamous as the case may be) lines about her [...] (cat), Tiddles are all here and still funny no matter how many times I watch the episodes. Although the Grace Brothers department store was hopelessly outdated, British humor never goes out of style. I recommend this set for anyone who enjoys laughter and fun. It’s all here.

    I have to say anyone who likes AYBS this is a great deal! My only complaint is the DVD Cases they don’t keep the discs in place but other than that this is a great deal.
