Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
One of Britain's most popular sitcoms, As Time Goes By is built on the adoring and warring romantic union between one of her majesty's thespian jewels -- Dame Judi Dench -- and the wonderfully underrated Geoffrey Palmer. Since its premiere in 1992, the series has received a groundswell of support on both sides of the pond, building its following with a rare blend of charm and nuanced humor. The series revolves around the star-crossed Jean Pargeter (Dench) and Lionel Hardcastle (Palmer), lovers during the Korean War who were separated by a twist of fate and reunited 38 years later. The highlight of the fifth season is the dramatic meeting between Lionel and his ex-wife Margaret (which Jean reluctantly agrees to attend). Dench and the marvelously deadpan Palmer are at the height of their powers, flashing a chemistry that recent American sitcoms would do well to study. Amid a sea of television driven by the need for near-constant laughter, As Time Goes By has carved a niche by doing something nearly unheard of -- revealing quirky humor in a subtle, natural pace, instead of rushing from one obvious punchline to the next. This 3 1/2 hour DVD includes all 7 episodes from the show's fifth season, plus bloopers and excerpts from Dench's tribute at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

I have every series 1 through 5, and I don't regret buying them all. Really good entertainment that you can watch again and again and never get bored with.

Havewatched this series on television since the onset of it, and just wish it were on every night, even though I've seen most of them I could watch them over and over again. Just a delightful fun filled, romantic story, leaving me with a feeling of having the joy of knowing there is decent and wonderful television out there.
