EntertainingBy mrparkerplease from South Yorkshire , 08 Jan 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]The first 4 episodes were classics and are guaranteed laughs.
The fifth episode called 'The Trial' was a huge disappointment as it is just Victor in the house on his own talking to himself for the whole episode.
The last episode is the last episode ever made. It's more dramatic than funny yet it does have its moments.

Victor Meldrew at his peak...........By Ilovefilmstoo (132 reviews) from Cumbria , 13 Apr 2012Oh I do like this programme - always funny and the pace is so lovely........even though I have always felt that Margaret is a very weak actress........the strength of the acting is one of the things that makes it such a success.........It was great having loads of episodes to watch........and old enough for me to have forgotten watching them first time round.......

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHidewe loved watching this One Foot In The Grave best of compilation.
the episodes are:
'The Return Of The Speckled Band' - The annual Meldrew holiday is fast approaching, but the way to Athens could prove slippery as reptiles invade Meldrew's suburbia.
'Dreamland' - Victor is determined to look his best for the village fete, where the guest of honour is that woman from the coffee commercial...
'The Broken Reflection' - Victor's brother Alfred comes to stay, bringing Great Grampie Meldrew's skull with him.
'Warm Champagne' - A sunburnt Victor does not react calmly when a milk tanker knocks the street lamp right through their window.
'The Trial' - Victor is summoned for jury service. How the blazes does he end up as the man on trial?
'Things Aren't Simple Anymore' - Nothing out of the ordinary in Victor's last days on earth: their house becomes a sacred shrine, Victor syringes a car mooner's bum and he's the only one to turn up at a work reunion.
Well worth watching !
The Very Best Of...?By David Ramsden from Leeds, England , 20 Jan 2007Not sure if the episodes chosen for this compilation merit the tile 'Very Best Of' - but all of them are a great laugh, a good way to meet Victor if you have been living in a hole for the past 20 years.
5 stars, because it's part of one of the best TV sitcoms ever made.
I don't believe how good it is!By a customer from Worcestershire , 21 Mar 2006I wouldn't necessarily agree that these episodes are the best out of all of them, but they are really funny a lot of the time.
My favourite out of this selection is 'The Trial', which stars only Victor for the entire episode. It's great writing which makes this episode work so well.
I would definitely recommend this dvd to rent - guarranteed to make you laugh!
Great fun!By a customer from Wolverhampton, UK , 21 Mar 2006How can you not love Vickor Meldrew! This is sitcom at it's best!
