"When it Comes to Snobbery, Hyacinth Bucket is in a Class of Her Own!"
Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced "bouquet") goes to incredible lengths in her quest for perfection. Hers is a spick-and-span house. Her downtrodden husband, Richard, acts as chauffeur in their immaculately kept car. Their permanently absent son has a superior name, Sheridan. Even the empty milk bottles sparkle on the doorstep after their obligatory rinse in the dishwasher. Hyacinth delights in her "candlelit suppers", but her guests live in fear of receiving her invitations. Next-door neighbor Liz is so nervous that she is guaranteed to break or spill something. Her brother Emmet hides every time he sees Hyacinth. And the Buckets' distinguished friend, the Major, and the vicar and his wife all do their best to keep out of her way. In marked contrast to Hyacinth's meticulously ordered life, however, the rest of her family are as common as muck. They live together in a rundown house that looks like a junkyard. Sister Daisy and her husband, Onslow, are out-and-out slobs. Her other sister, Rose, is an aging tart. And her elderly father is a lecherous drunk, given to cycling stark-naked down by the canal, chasing the milkwoman. Whatever Hyacinth does, her family can always be guaranteed to show her up. Can she ever live down the disgrace?

This nine disc collection includes all 44 episodes of Keeping Up Appearances!

"A smashing BBC hit comedy of manners...[that] gained a faithful audience on both sides of the pond.  Erin Boland, DVD Verdict
"...a smartly-written satire of snobbery...Buoyed by a cast of first-rate talents led by Patricia Routledge...  Paul Corupe, DVD Verdict

Editor's Note
This delightful British comedy series presents a look into the life of Hyacinth Bucket (Patricia Routledge)--who insists on "Bucket" being pronounced "Bouquet"--and the problems she encounters with her family. Desperate to climb the social ladder, Hyacinth will stop at nothing to shed her working-class background in an attempt to enter the world of the fabulously wealthy. Comedic results abound, with excellent performances throughout. This collection presents all five seasons of the enormously popular show, as well as Christmas specials from 1991, 1993, 1994, and 1995.
