I’ve had a couple of requests from people to let them know the names of the episodes in this collection. So I thought I’d put them on here. They are:-
The Day The Balloon Went Up – Sons of the Sea – Don’t Forget The Diver – Asleep in the Deep – Boots Boots Boots – A Soldier’s Farewell – Big Guns – Menace From The Deep – The Bullet Is Not For Firing – Mum’s Army – The Armoured Might Of Lance Corporal Jones – Put That Light Out – The Two and a Half Feathers – The Test – Fallen Idol – The Deadly Attachment – If The Cap Fits – The Honourable Man
Was this review helpful to you?
The programme content and acting in Dad’s Army is superb. What a pity then that BFS Video, Canada, producers of this DVD have once again released a sub-standard product in terms of picture quality.
The video is encoded at only 2-3 mps for the most part, resulting in smearing and blockiness.
I will be cautious in buying any future releases having already been stung with Six Wives of Henry VIII which was also very poor.
Please BFS! Get your act together.
Delightful, engaging, funny, serene … – words fail to express the sincere JOY this show gives me. I could probably use all the complimentary words in a thesaurus – and then some. Along with The Prisoner I have my desert island TV sorted. Every character is real. Even if the show was not funny (which it is – hugely), I could still watch this end-to-end and then again just for the characters alone. The BBC made some sublime TV in late 1960′s and through the 1970′s. Fawlty Towers, Are You Being Served etc are all magnificent … but if push comes to shove this is it. The best TV of all time? Well, that’s my opinion and I am entitled to it – but yes, I would augue that this is it.
One criticism though – why oh why can’t the BBC/A&E release the whole series IN FULL and in sequence (they’ve found 2 of the 5 missing episodes from Series 2 so they have enough material to fill that DVD with the “Finding Of..” TV special (from 2000), Message To The Empire, various BBC variety TV appearances, the 1-hour specials etc etc). Now when that’s released I would be truly happy.
