I remember watching this back in the 90's on Channel 4 on Sundays, and always finding it funny and enjoyable to watch, so I thought I would put together an episode guide with my own personal ratings. It's great to watch on Blu-ray for sure plus it's one of the best for extra's... so I would say "worth the investment!"
It's also interesting to see who wrote the theme music for this 60's TV show but none other than John Williams of Star Wars fame... except he went under the name of 'Johnny Williams'
