This is not my favourite of the Two Ronnies series, mainly because there are only two of the iconic musical numbers that I love so much - they are "Jehosophat and Jones" and "The Short and Fat Minstrel Show".
There is no running serial though series 3 either.
There are, however, a number of skits on the top TV shows of the time (Upstairs Downstairs, Onedin Line, etc), as well as political and social comments. As always there are the usual "news" items at the beginning and end of each show and Mr Corbett's monolgues.
Pan's People prance about for 4 or 5 minutes, and there is a song for each episode from a different singer or group.
Many of the jokes are not to the standard of the current PC treads, but as a study into the sociological and political aspects of the early 1970s (27 September 1973 - 3 January 1974) this box set is a gem.
Not one of the best series, but still worth having.
Pan's People are regulars, strutting the stuff in an attractive way, and each week's second pop item is provided by such performers as Dawn, Dana and the New Seekers, not all of whom have stood the test of time.
I am looking forward to further improvement when watching series 4.
We've only seen one episode of series 3, and it raised several smiles but few, if any, belly laughs. After 40 years or so we enjoyed seeing first two series again, and will enjoy the rest of series 3 from time to time.
