A good collection of the best moments...
3 February 2005 | by dittoheadazSee all my reviews

This "best of" show (filmed in Phoenix, AZ, when John Inman was in town to promote the show on the local PBS station) makes good use of many of the best moments from Are You Being Served.

Clips from the original show are interspersed with newly-filmed scenes where Mr. Humphries (John Inman) gets called by his mother (John Inman) who is on a trip to the United States. She convinces him to write up his experiences at Grace Brothers in book form, which provides the basis of all of the remembrances of the funniest moments from the 10-year series.

Whether it's taking an inside leg, hanky-panky, or Mrs. Slocombe's hair, you'll enjoy this trip back in time through one of the funniest (and most talented) casts ever to grace (no pun intended) the television screen.
