    On April 2, As Time Goes By series 4 comes to DVD. It's a charming British comedy with Judi Dench. I have enjoyed the few episodes I've seen on PBS, but I have to wonder why we are starting with seris 4 and not 1?
    Are there any plans to release series 1-3? I don't feel comfortable buying series 4 having not watched or bought series 1-3.

    I noticed that, but I assumed I had just overlooked the release of Series 1-3. So, they haven't put 1-3 out at all?

    That's kind of kooky.

    I love this show! (I must be getting old.)

    Seasons 1-3 were only released on VHS at a time when the BBC wasn't releasing much of anything on DVD. They'll probably get around to reissuing them on our favorite format if Season 4 sells reasonably well.

    BBCAmerica.com responded to a request indicating that Series 1-3 should come out this fall. No explanation was offerred as to why series 4 is coming first.
