Mind Your Language the Complete First Series

There was a time when comedy knew no boundaries and politically correctness was just a "theory" for academics and whether it was Benny Hill or Faulty Towers, British comedy has definitely made a huge impact on the world of humour. With this,  came a plethora of great British comedy series and of course "Mind Your Language" is part of that comedy mythology.

Originally airing in 1977 in England which also followed an Australian release, Mind Your Language revolved around Mr. Jeremy Brown, a TAFE-like English teacher who was given the task of teaching "migrants" how to speak English. The star of the series was Barry Evans who played the straight man English teacher who attempted to reign his students together, however as per usual, something would always go wrong.

The series contained almost every stereotype of the era, whether it was "Greek" or "Italian" accidents and misinterpretations or the sexy nymphs who always tried to get the better of Mr. Brown, the series went from funny to hilarious. Where the series shined is through the events that were created by these misunderstanding of English and to compound the situation, Headmistress miss Courtney played a "thorn" in Mr. Brown's side as he attempted to control his wayward students.

The series was definitely politically incorrect, however if you can ignore this aspect and respect the series for what it was, Mind Your Language Series 1 is a brilliant British comedy series. Add in some in great commentary by the writer and some of the original cast and this is one enjoyable trip down memory lane.
