Are you being served?

There's plenty of laughter when an unbelievably quirky contingent of sales clerks makes shopping at Grace Brothers the comic experience of a lifetime.
Special features: "Funny turns: John Inman"; "Funny women: Mollie Sugden"; "A life on the box: Wendy Richard"; "Are you being confused?"; "The best of Are you being served?"; "Celebrating Mollie Sugden"; special episode "Are you being served? Again!"; Who's who; trivia; trailers.

If you are a fan, I need not type another word. If you are not this is one of the funniest and absurd television series dealing with interdepartmental relations and customer service. Every character is "over-the-top" in their way. Whether customer or employee we can all relate to the humorous daily operations of Grace Brothers Department Store. The series ran on PBS, in Michigan from the late 1970's to the mid 1980's, from 11:00pm to 11:30 leading the way to the Benny Hill Show and Monty Python. Yes it set up a nice late night BBC experience. "without commercials" ~Mike
