Not sure how many of you will remember this gem, but it's finally being released on DVD. Fantastic comedy set in the year 123.

Ahhh but Dave....is it fantastic in a 'I remember this being brilliant 20 odd years ago but turns out it's actually a bit sh*t' sort of way (he says, having lashed out on a box set of Monkey and not made it past the third disc)?

I still love Chelmsford 123, somebody put some episodes on youtube a while ago (they were removed soon after for copyright) and I still found it really funny :D

I had series 2 taped off the telly on VHS which I wore out. Most of my jokes are still variations on that series. I even quoted it in my A-level Classics exam.

I did some filmwork with Rory McGrath last year- most people there knew him as "that bloke of They Think It's All Over", I was the only one calling him "Badvoc" :)

Both series are available for free on 4OD via Youtube, so I watched a couple on Friday night.
Still quite funny, but not funny enough to pay for.

Thanks for that, I'll look on youtube again for them :)

Not sure I'd buy them though either, don't mind watching for free though :D
