Dad's Army (Series 3)

Originally shown in 1969, Dads Army Series 3 continues the exploits of the boys in His Majesties Armed forces during the War. Filled with subtle humour, the show will be lost on some viewers, as it is a bit old in the tooth. If you take it in context though and just appreciate the clever writing, most people could get something out of it. 

Being the Home Guard, the lads are Englandís last defence against the Nazi Hordes should the regular army fail abroad.  The Home Guard was made up of volunteers who for whatever reason did not serve overseas. The funny thing about this series is the relationships between the men who make up the group in this series. 

Some of the guys in this series are so old that they can barely walk let alone defend the nation! 

Remember, the British even now have a bit of a Caste system and when someone lower in caste is in charge, certain people get upset! Itís a real show of self control to not just get on ones soapbox and dress the commoners down.   

Possibly my favourite episode on this disc is War Dance, which addresses this caste problem with some hilarity when the pompous Mainwaring is a right ass when he thinks that Pike is going to show up to the Platoon Dance with a commoner. 

Episodes on this disc are: 

The Armoured Might of Lance Corporal Jones

Battle School

The Lion Has Phones

The Bullet is Not for Firing

Something Nasty in the Vault

Room at the Bottom

Big Guns

The Day The Balloon Went Up

War Dance

Menace from the Deep

Branded

Man Hunt

No Spring for Frazer

Sons of the Sea 

The quality is surprisingly good on this disc considering its age and the audio isnít too bad either. Fans will enjoy the limited content that in on the extras and the rest of you will enjoy some great comedic moments. Give it a shot!
