The Cookoo Waltz The Complete Second Series (1976/Network U.K./Region Two/2/PAL DVD)

 

Picture: C Sound: C+ Extras: D Episodes: C+

 

 

PLEASE NOTE: This DVD set can only be operated on machines capable of playing back DVDs that can handle Region Two/2/PAL format software and can be ordered from our friends at Network U.K. at the website address provided at the end of the review or at finer retailers.

 

 

Lewis Collins plays a border and near houseguest from hell in The Complete Second Series of The Cookoo Waltz, a moderate hit series where a married couple (Diane Keen, David Roper) want to live a simple life, but their single guest is more modern and high strung. They never throw him out, but then if they did, there would be no show, would there?

 

This is the second of four seasons and at least at this time, it was a smart show and more amusing than you might expect, yet far from a classic. Still, there is only so much they can do with this situation so only series BritCom fans will want to check it out.

 

The 1.33 X 1 PAL image is softer than we would have liked, while the Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono is better with audio that is fuller despite its distortion. There are no extras.

 

 

As noted above, you can order this PAL DVD import exclusively from Network U.K. at:
