From the press release:
“The world’s longest-running sitcom returns to DVD with more antics from everyone’s favorite geriatrics! After seeing Seymour off, Compo and Clegg intend to take over his position as headmaster. Foggy returns from Bridlington, but Compo and Clegg keep missing him. Once Foggy finally reunites with Compo and Clegg, though, he loses them while out on a walk, leading him to come up with an idea to create portable radios. Later, Foggy’s flare for inventing continues when he starts a game of bicycle polo. The trio’s youthful antics lead them into training for a barrel rolling event, playing soccer for charity, and restoring an old boat… with the hopes of taking Nora on her maiden voyage! The lads even join Smiler in a search for a new place to live. Don’t miss the next installment of adventures with these loveable old men!”

As I’ve said on many of my reviews of the LOTSW sets, don’t be surprised if you are lukewarm to LOTSW on first viewing. This show grows on you over time. The first time I saw LOTSW I was underwhelmed… it was slow and seemed almost without a plot. But after watching a few more episodes I was hooked!
Releases are getting faster but they’re *still* too slow! Come on Warner Brothers, how about a more realistic release pace of 4-5 series a year for the longest running sitcom in the world!

The episode listing on this Editorial is incorrect. These episodes are from the previous DVD of 1987. Please correct so I (and others) can know what we are ordering. Thank you.
I have enjoyed this series for years and am really glad that they have begun producing the DVDs. I will continue purchasing as long as they make the years I am missing available.
