This and the fact that you can't help but have Mrs. Slocombe in your mind when watching it. I had that trouble with "That's My Boy" but you soon realize that the characters are different so in a sense you start seeing her differently. I couldn't do that with "CBMN".

I know this is kind of an old thread but I would love to purchase the dvd's for this. However I can only find them in the UK and I don't think that format will work in the US. Does anyone know where I can get them in a US format?

Thanks!

I've only ever been able to find Region 2 versions of this sitcom on general release. There are some Region 0 Pal versions which are theoretically universal, but they will have been copied direct from video and the quality won't be great; a quick search found links like http://www.ioffer.com/i/Come-Back-Mr...gden-102716297

as the only type of these disks currently available, and they have a fishiness aound their whole makeup that makes the more circumspect consumer reach for his or her bargepole... You may be better contacting the BBC directly and asking about release formats that were used for the PBS broadcasts on US tv.

Sorry that this isn't much help.

Thank you madeinengland! I saw that link and I don't think it looks to great either. Rats. I know the show will probably bite, except for Mollie of course, but I would love to add this to my collection. My AYBS disk set and Take a Letter Mr.Jones tapes are getting lonely on the shelf.

I agree in terms of the quality not mattering; just a bit dubious about playing dodgy software.... I'm just mean and cynical, I think!

A multi-region DVD player will solve that problem. I've got one myself and wouldn't be without it - absolutely invaluable for Britcom enthusiasts on the left side of the Big Pond.

Default Come Back Mrs. Noah

Who else likes this show? It's not the best thing in the world but my brother and I enjoy our DVDs of it (even though episode 2 won't play completly ). We have a fun little theory that Mrs. Noah might somehow be related to Mrs. Slocumbe, making the show be in the future of AYBS? Anyone have any comments about Come Back Mrs. Noah?

Here's another thread already started where we've discussed this show.

Personally I've never liked "CBMN". I know I tried hard to like it but the show was just bad.

Does anyone have a digital copy of this? It's been yanked off of youtube and I've been Yanked my whole life - so getting a region 2 DVD wouldn't help me much. ...I'd still love to see it, though!

I just foumd it on You-Tube, but didn't stick around to watch it.
Here is a page with CBMN in streaming video. You can find a lot of things on Google.

You can find the DVD on ioffer (mentioned here in the forum - I don't have this copy - so I don't know about the quality), but also (like Odd Man Out) from UkRarities (Euston Home E. / Australia). The quality of the UKRarities is like the vids from Youtube. It's ok...anyway it's better as the quality of the "Odd man out" DVD from this Euston H.E.!

My b/f liked it a lot - cause he liked the stupid idea that a housewife wins a contest and gets into space.
It's totally crap..but I must confess I can laugh about it! Maybe I was on drugs or drunk when I watched it LOL No seriously (I don't take drugs or drink at all) - I was so bewildered that I don't know what to think about it. Maybe I had a very good day and was very generous that I found something nice in this show....

For me - anything with Mollie Sugden is a treat.

I've watched a couple of episodes of this on YouTube this week. It's not half bad, and it's practically an AYBS reunion: Mrs. Slocombe, Miss Hearst, several customers....

Now that I've gotten into episode 3, I can see why people didn't care for this show.
