Who would have thought retirement could be so chaotic? Certainly not querulous Victor Meldrew one of tree-lined suburbia's perennial complainers or his long suffering wife Margaret. When he's forced to take early retirement Victor suddenly has plenty of time on his hands to rage against the petty annoyances of life. But there's one thing to remember in the Meldrew household - whatever can go wrong often does and it usually spells disaster for Victor... Series 1: 1.

When I say to my friends about my absolute love for One Foot In The Grave, more often than not it's met with confusion, or a 'isn't it for old people' remark. The thing that irritates me most about this is the fact that OFITG is clever, dark, hilarious and heartbreaking in equal measures. I am in my thirties, but wouldn't be classed as someone who likes asinine broad television, which sometimes I feel OFITG can be mistaken as, perhaps because of the slightly cheesy incidental music, or the age of the cast. When I originally bought this on video, separately, I think it must have set me back at least £150 if not more, so for the price you can get this at, they're virtually giving you a gift! Victor is not just a catchphrase, he's a kind hearted, misunderstood man who is just meaning well and frustrated by the ridiculous, selfish nature of many people. The only fault I have ever found with this series is the ending, which I shan't spoil for you if you haven't seen it, but it feels a little TOO dark and heart breaking for a character that many had invested so much in over the years. An extremely involving, wonderful series that should have carried on longer. I can't recommend it enough!
