    Having watched all five tapes, two nights in a row, I am still thoroughly amused and can and will continue to watch them. Being from “Streatham” certainly helps but regardless, George Cole’s rendition of Henry Root displays the “Average Englishman abroad” character that has been, and I guess still is, prevalent since the Korean War!

    Don’t expect “European Vacation” (also a film I love by the way!) here because “Root into Europe” is a more subtle comedy which visits European foibles more in depth. This video is even funnier to people who have travelled in “the continent”.
    Other than Henry and Muriel Root, all the other players are real people often responding somewhat spontaneously.
    Henry Root’s stereotypical notions about different Europeans (Germans have no sense of humor, the Spanish are lazy, the French are too intellectual and no fun etc.) and how these notions are blown away are supremely funny.
    I think “Root into Europe” is a budding classic and a keeper!

    Worth the wait!, August 25, 1999

    While traveling through Europe in 1992, I caught this series on the BBC and thought it was hilarious! I tried contacting the BBC to order a copy, but didn’t have any luck. Thankfully I found it on Amazon.com and I am so pleased with my order. The episodes are as funny now as they were seven years ago. A thrill to anyone who appreciates clever comedy!
