World War Two - hardly the setting for a comedy programme, surely? Wrong!
Whilst the brave and able-bodied men and youth marched off to war, Great Britain was left at the mercy of the Nazi bombings and the ever-impending potential invasion.
However, Britain's last line of defence lay with the elderly and not-so-able-young-men - the home guard, soon referred to as Dad's Army!
From the very first episode, we follow Captain Mainwaring, a plump and proud born-leader, as he sets up a Home Guard unit at the town Walmington-On-Sea and winds up in many ridiculous circumstances alongside his laid-back Sergeant, Mr.Wilson.
With plenty of characters that everyone can relate to, it is very easy to fall into a strong bond with such a marvellous line-up.
From the old & clumsy (yet patriotic) war veteran, Corporal Jones, to the young "mummy's-boy" Private Pike, there is a character for everyone to identify with - and even picture themselves in such a role!
What especially makes this series unique is the fact that it is family-friendly, with the slapstick comedy aspects for the children and the subtle slap-on-the-wrist references that will leave adults red in the face!
Remaining loyal to historical events and dates, it also depicts the hard work involved among the community to ensure Britain functioned as effectively as possible, yet making it as entertaining as possible to watch, too.
This boxset is a marvellous collection of all the episodes, ranging from the very first black-and-white pilot all the way through the series to the tear-jerking final scene.
Surely this series marks a milestone in the history of comedy. Never before has a comedy series been so well developed without ruining the entire franchise. This is a piece of family-entertainment no family should be without - the perfect way to finish off a long day and then tucking the children into bed with Bud Flannagan's "Who do you think you are kidding, Mr.Hitler?" still ringing in their ears and memories of Corporal Jones hanging from the top of a windmill!

This brilliant DVD gives you the entire Dads Army series including the lost episodes so you can enjoy the brilliant Dads Army episode in its entirity, I would reccomend buying the Dads Army Movie as well which would complement this product wonderfully.
You can enjoy all the best moments and gags, from Corporal Jones's "dont panic" to Captain Mannerings denonciation of Private Pike as " You stupid boy!" and Private Frasers many witty and often somewhat rude comments that are delivered at exactly the right moment. Watch and laugh at the molllycoddoling Mrs Pike, Captain Mannerings jealously of Sargent Wilsons wealthy upbringing and Warden Hodges many hilarious attempts to get people to "put that light out" and also enjoy the rivarly bewtween him and captain Mannering, be sure not to miss out on all these laughs, these days we really need something to lose ourselves in and laugh at.
This was undooutedly the best but I ever made for some
time if not the best buy I have made in my entire life.
Buy this DVD as a tribute to the Brilliance of the actors, many of whom are now very sadly dead, so it buying this product is in a way a tribute to thier memories and even to the real Home Gaurd of World War 2.
