Once again, the Christmas Special will be included!
From the press release: "Ah, what a year! Once again, the vintage threesome are up to their old tricks. Compo is as smitten as ever with Nora, but Foggy is back working on his crackpot inventions-and poor Clegg is dragged into their mischief-making plots even though he knows better."
There are 7 episodes this time out:
Quick, Quick, Slow - Nora has taken Smiler in as her lodger, and Compo is depressed about it.
Give Us a Lift - Compo is convinced the hills are getting steeper, so Foggy invents a chair lift.
Was That Nora Batty Singing - Compo believes he can hear Nora singing, and is convinced that she and Smiler are having an affair.
Cash Flow Problems - Compo is skint, but remembers that he's owed money from an old schoolfriend, so the trio set off to track him down.
Passing the Earring - Howard asks Clegg if he can return an earring to Marina.
Pole Star - Compo is depressed because he's too short to help Nora hang her washing line, but Foggy suggests that she'd be impressed if he could vault up onto the wall.
Situation Vacant - The Christmas Special
As I've said before on my reviews of the LOTSW sets, don't be surprised if you are lukewarm to LOTSW on first viewing. This show grows on you over time. The first time I saw LOTSW I was underwhelmed... it was slow and seemed almost without a plot. But after watching a few more episodes I was hooked!
In a prior reveiw I stated: "Come on Warner Brothers, how about a more realistic release pace of 4-5 series a year..." - Well it apears they listened to those of us with that simple plea.
Bonus news: Based on a blog post at bbcamericashop the series is now on a "quarterly release plan"! Vintage 1992 is up for advance order there with a April 17, 2012 date.
*JUST IN* Amazon currently has Vintage 1992 up for pre-order with that same April 17 release date! Go here: Last of the Summer Wine: Vintage 1992
