Product Description


Academy Award-winner Geoffrey Palmer and Oscar-winner Dame Judi Dench are the "dream team" in this beloved British TV series about former lovers reunited after 38 years. The third season's the charm as Lionel and Jean take the next step in their rekindled romance by moving in together. Theirs is, one character notes, "a great love story," one which a publisher friend thinks that--with "a few minor alterations"--might make "a stunning miniseries" for American television. In several memorable episodes, Lionel and Jean's long-delayed dream holiday to Paris becomes a comic nightmare when they babysit a spatting honeymoon couple. Lionel displays his "softer side" when he gives his blessing to his indefatigable 85-year-old father's marriage. Meanwhile, Jean opens a second branch of her secretarial agency. But at the heart of this season is Lionel and Jean's new living arrangement. They are, it is observed, "like ham and eggs," except that they've never lived in the same pan before. It isn't going to be easy, but as Lionel notes, "When did anyone ever claim that love was easy?"

As Time Goes By is all the more precious considering that mature couples like Lionel and Jean are irrelevant on American television. "We are relevant," a defiant Jean insists. Better still, they are true. There are moments in this very human comedy that will have you, in the words of one ham-handed American television executive, "by the throat," as when Lionel, penning the miniseries, tells Jean what he felt when he first saw her all those years ago: "I saw you and I stopped breathing." --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars The World Will Always Welcome Lovers June 27 2002
"As Time Goes By" is the gentle, funny story of Jean Pargetter and Lionel Hardcastle, two people who used to be in love in the early fifties. When Lionel went off to fight in the Korean War, the two lost touch. They meet again 38 years later, quite by accident, and what is at first an awkward re-kindling slowly morphs into a warm romance.
Season 3 of the series finds things progressing nicely. After a sometimes bumpy ride toward real love, Jean & Lionel begin to take their relationship in a much more definitive direction. Alot happens this season, and it is one of the best of the series.
Episode 1 has Lionel & Jean vacationing in Paris. It is a tender and funny episode, and finds the two having to babysit some squabbling newlyweds.
Episode 2 is a classic: the wedding of Lionel's father Rocky to the charming and unique Madge. Lionel also proposes that he and Jean live together.
Episode 3 is a favorite of mine, as it shows a realistic problem that couples who want to live together face: do I give up my place, or do you give up yours? Oh, and Lionel gets carted off to the police station!
Episode 4 features a visit from Jean's sister-in-law Penny (from Jean's previous marriage), and her long-suffering husband Stephen. Those two are always a treat.
Episode 5 finally has the BIG MOVE. It has one of my favorite parts of the series in it, where Judi Dench does a superb job portraying Jean's emotions, as plans Lionel has made for them end up hurting her feelings.
Episode 6 finds Jean wanting to expand her secretarial agency.
Episode 7 is a pivotal one, for it is the first time that Alistair (Lionel's publisher) mentions that an American network is interested in producing a mini-series out of Jean & Lionel's young romance, and their eventual reuniting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is love as sweet the second time around Oct. 17 2005
By Movie Mania - Published on Amazon.com
Series 3 begins with Jean and Lionel filling their dream of a holiday in Paris. Unfortunately, bad weather forces them to spend most of their time in the hotel.

Next Lionel's father is getting married again...at his age? Rocky and Madge are not your usual senior citizens. So when their wedding is rescued by bikers, it just seems appropriate.

Episode 3, Lionel and Jean decide to move in together. But each thinks the other is moving to their flat.

Episode 4, Jean's meddling ex-sister in law Penny is visiting. But Jean doesn't want to admit her situation with Lionel. This includes keeping up the lie about Lionel's profession.

Episode 5, Jean and Lionel finally move in together and find out that living together has adjustments required.

Episode 6, while Jean expands her company, Lionel has financial problems.

Episode 7, Alister comes to Lionel's rescue again. He has pitched Jean and Lionel's story to the "Americans".

Episode 8, Jean and Lionel travel to Hollywood to discuss the miniseries. This is the British version of Hollywood including a gun toting crazed writer.

Episode 9, back from Hollywood, Lionel and Jean have severe jet lag but Jean must resolve who is going to run Type for You 2

Episode 10, Jean and Lionel start on the miniseries but they have different memories.

This is not the best in the series but it has some very funny moments. And this in one of the best TV shows of the 90's. Buy the entire series!!

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent with reservations April 27 2009
By A. Birch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this with great anticipation, the series is excellent and I was looking forward to having it all on DVD. To begin with it isn't all of the series, the last two segments are missing. I also received 2 of the series one and two and none of series 3 and had to order that seperately. I do realize it wasn't Amazon's fault that the packing of the series was faulty but If a series is described as complete It really should be complete. Complete means everything not everything except some of it. I have had to seperately order the last two segments. Somewhat annoying. Amazon should make clear what is being offered for sale.

1.0 out of 5 stars As Time Goes By - Complete Series 3 March 12 2007
By md74 - Published on Amazon.com
While I absolutely love the show on PBS, this season was mispackaged. The box and DVD were both labeled series 3, but when you view it the episodes are exactly the same as series 1/2. Unfortunately, I didn't try watching this disc until several months after I bought it. If you buy this, be sure you view it promptly to be certain it's the correct series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A short story from GB worth its' weight and hours of repeatrf veiwing Nov. 18 2011
By Larry p - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a series that we have enjoyed on PBS and decided we wanted to continue to enjoy it on the evenings it is preempted and after is has run it's course as a program. You could count on one hand the number of dvds we have purchased for our own entertainment but this series is so outstanding we decided we had to have it. Charming and innovative dialogue well presented by the cast of stars with whom one quickly falls in love.
