Are you being Served Series Four
Entertainment have released another "Are you Being Served" classic
on DVD that collects the entire fourth series that revolves around
the staff of the Grace Brothers Department Store of the menswear and
ladies wear section. Featuring some of England's most comedic and
talented actors which such as Mollie Sugden, Trevor Bannister and
Nicholas Smith, it's easy to see why this BBC comedy series become
such a hit in its time.
Whether it's the
pompous Mrs. Slocombe (Mollie Sugden) whose always worried about her
"pussy", that is her cat Tiddles or the uptight Captain Peacock who
was apparently an army officer or so he wishes his staff to believe,
the actors really take the script to the next level with its
hilarity and amazing anecdotes.
Probably the most
memorable character in the series is the flamboyant Mr. Humphries
(John Inman) who created one of the first of the catch phrases on
television with "I'm free" is really a comedic genius and throws
enough twists and turns into his character development to really
question the viewer whether his character is really gay or not.
Although the staff
of Grace Brothers rarely do any selling, it is the dynamics between
the characters that make the show and this collection brings all the
old favourites together from the sexist and dotard Mr. Granger to
the sexy Miss Brahms (Wendy Richard) who is always being chased by
Mr. Lucas (Trevor Bannister), this collection is definitely a must
have for fans of the original series or for those that want a
different comedy that has actually kept its original comedic humour
intake. Brilliant stuff!
Includes all the
episodes from Season Four.
