Woo-hoo! Found the Good Life

I found a DVD set of 3 seasons of The Good Life and, since I had some Christmas money to blow, I ordered it. Ever since I joined here, I've wanted to see the series. :cheers:

I've got the box set - it was a present a year or so ago.

I can't tell how big an impression this rather silly comedy had on me back in the 70s. I still love it.

I was given the box set last year. Felicity Kendal made huge influence on me in the 70's.
Has anyone seen the plot, I seem to have lost mine?

I was a child in the 70s but have always loved The Good Life. I bought the various series individually and just recently watched them all again. It is a wonderful show, one of my all time favourites.

I'm sure if I'd ever had a TV I'd love to watch it, too... :iconbiggrin:

I think it is the Christmas special that is most repeated on the BBC - but usually in July/August for some reason!

Aw man I love The Good Life. I've got them all including the specials and Royal command performance. I love them, can't get enough. Whenever I'm ill and stuck indoors they are the only thing I watch!! I think I'm pretty much word perfect by now!! My favourite is season 2, The Guru of Surbiton. Let me know what you think!! (Yes I am a total sad case!)
