    The reviewer admits he is not a fan of the Thames episodes,and says this dvd is a compilation of 2 out of 35 episodes.Incorrect.
    Around 1990 Thames put together 2 compilations of 55 minutes each for vhs release.Kenny Everetts Naughty Bits,and More of.....
    These 2 programmes have been available for nearly 2 years on an Australian DVD,and this is simply a UK release for it.Without actually watching it I can't be sure,but it looks as if the extras are the same as the Oz disc aswell.
    Its a pity they did not release the original Thorn EMI versions from the early 80's,which were compilations of each series and were well over 2 hours long each.The BBC series was a shadow of the Thames original,gradually spiralling down from clever sketches to total stupidity.And although you wonder how the Beeb got away with it at 8.30pm,it just didn't seem as risque as the Thames shows on at 6.45 and 7.00

    Not the reviewers mistake, you can blame that one on the PR company who send the information through along with the disc. We can't all be experts on everything;)
