"ah. Canny one pet"

Will always love the likely lads in any format, strong performance's from both lead actors. The storylines are excellent with bob and terry's lives interweaving. Ideal retrospective gift for Christmas of 1970's life before technology demeaned everything!!!

Inaudible more like

Awful, truly awful. Why have they released such a poor quality version of this classic piece of British comedy? The audio in the first section is so inferior it spoils the collection. I can’t listen to it. Waste of money.
