Last Of The Summer Wine: The Complete Collection [DVD]
About this deal
All three are working class men but they represent different strands that match up to the Social Classes. The character of Norman Clegg was created especially for Sallis, who liked the character and agreed to play him. Because the other thing these three episodes exemplify perfectly is the basic flaw in the situation that could not have gone on for much longer, if at all. There were twenty-one Christmas specials, three television films and a documentary film about the series. Michael Bates shouts his lines rather than says them, Peter Sallis isn’t far behind him and Bill Owen mugs and hisses and acts half-senile.
I am convinced I watched a Michael Bates episode in which the trio had an outing to Oswestry where Cyril renewed acquaintance with a former NAAFI canteen manageress of whom he had entertained romantic feelings but who had married otherwise. Its popularity made this decision hard to justify, however, since even repeats sometimes received ratings of as many as five million viewers per episode. Of course, the spin-off paid no attention to continuity as the young Clegg and Compo clearly knew Seymour at the Coop in 1939 when they were supposed only to have been introduced to him in 1983, nor was there any reference to the young Cyril Blamire.

A photography exhibition at the Library, bringing Bloody Wainwright and Mr Partridge back into the background limelight, inspired Cyril back to his old hobby of photography. I also updated the post to include the featurette 'The Funny Side of Christmas' that I forgot to include. I speak as someone who has always found the pain in a situation to overwhelm the intended humour: it takes a lot to make me laugh at tragedy, no matter how much that is the intention, but these episodes had me giggling away as if it were twenty-five years earlier. Last of the Summer Wine is a British sitcom set in Yorkshire created and written by Roy Clarke and originally broadcast by the BBC from 1973 to 2010.
Helped by a supporting band of formidable wives, hen-pecked husbands, sexually-charged mistresses, inventors, pigeon fanciers .
Entertainment Magpie Limited t/a Music Magpie is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority FRN 775278. The BBC was not supposed to follow that imperative, although the barrage of attacks from commercial interests over several years have forced them far too far along that route. What I now understand, decades out of date, is that like a lot of improbable and obscure visitors to the Top 30, Mr Bloe was a favourite of the Northern Soul Scene, of which I did not become aware until 1974. Left to their own company, Cyril and Norman don’t have enough in common to flesh out the hours they have to spend together. Meanwhile, Howard is in trouble when Marina, on finding out that he has made enquiries about another woman, turns up at his house.
Both the first two episodes start to develop the physical comedy the series became famous/notorious for, but that’s in its infancy and Roy Clarke doesn’t make hardly anything of the piano bit at all, except for Michael Bates playing some clanging, heavy-handed quasi-tune that showcased his real ability by being so carefully bad. Eager to show off his detective skills, Truly volunteers to shadow her and find out what she's up to. Television so desperately wishes to be edgy and would really rather that those for whom edgy is unwelcome and unpleasant might disappear into their bland little holes and, well, die. Citing differences with the BBC and his dislike of their indifference towards the series, Bell said, "I have now decided I will not do it again.
I have an umbilical connection with ‘Groovin’ with Mr Bloe’, as this is my Official First Single I Ever Bought (meaning that it’s the one I can feel safe in admitting to, given that it’s marginally respectable, as opposed to the Real First Single I Ever Bought, which was ‘The Leavin’ (Durham Town)’ by Roger Whittaker). It seems that they did this due to lack of space on the previous series disc and just put them in where they had room. Yes, there are only 31 series total but for some reason starting around series 10 or 11 they get ahead of themselves and mislabel them and add an extra 1 to the count. The BBC now serves part of its audience worse than it did before, because it lacks the confidence to follow its remit properly.
