    Synopsis


    Season one of As Time Goes By begins as acerbic author Lionel Hardcastle (Geoffrey Palmer) is unexpectedly reunited with implacable businesswoman Jean Parteger (Judi Dench), with whom he had an affair some 38 years earlier. Upon realizing who Jean is, Lionel would just as soon leave the past behind him, but he needs the help of Jean's secretarial service to finish his current book. As the two former lovers are brought together professionally, the old sparks begin to rekindle, despite the fact that so much has changed in the past four decades. Complicating matters is the fact that Lionel's publisher, Alistair (Philip Bretherton), also has designs on Jean. Fortunately, Alistair finds a more suitable companion in the form of Jean's daughter, Judy (Moira Brooker), but as the season comes to a close, the audience still isn't certain that Lionel and Jean, two golden-agers who are very, very set in their ways, will ever get together again.

      We've been able to catch sporadic episodes of this delightful British comedy series on our local PBS station, but have never been able to watch the whole series in chronological order. Now we are able to watch the plots unfold as they were originally presented. The picture quality on the DVD is far superior to the broadcast signal, plus it fills the whole TV screen.

      This is the PBS British Comedy Series. It is very entertaining, funny, and enjoyable. This is a story of a couple who are reunited after 40 yrs. This story shares their young love and reasons they didn't stay together and their getting together after 40 yrs. It is a wonderful show and would be enjoyed by all who have been in a relationship for many years. I recommend to everyone in their late 40's to 80's above.

      BritCom series with gentle humor and no offensive language. Older generation will identify with mature characters.
