Compo, Clegg and Truly return for another season of comic adventures in the beautiful setting of the Yorkshire Dales. The trio is up to their usual antics: the men act to squelch rumors of marital infidelity as an innocent kiss provokes suspicions; Clegg experiments with a new hairpiece much to his friends' disdain; and the trio meets Belle, a woman who reads fortunes from a hubcap.

Episode List
Last Post and Pigeon
After Compo is snubbed for a reunion of Dunkerque veterans, the village collects money so Clegg, Compo, and Truly can revisit Compo's wartime memories.

Lipstick and Other Problems
When Barry's mouth is lipstick-smeared after giving Marina a lift, Truly, with the help of Compo and Clegg, comes up with the idea of a sponsored kiss to explain it. Meanwhile, Auntie Wainwright road tests a motorcycle at high speed, to the concern of the local police and Eli tries his hand at being a shop window dummy without even realising it.

Under the Rug
Howard has a wig delivered to Clegg's, but when Pearl is suspicious Clegg has to not only pretend ownership of it, but be seen wearing it, much to Truly's amusement. Howard is only persuaded to reclaim the wig after the trio arrange for Smiler to wear it and Marina to kiss him. Meanwhile Barry tries and fails to be master of his own home, and Compo offers himself to Nora Batty as a "limited sale".

Magic and the Morris Minor
An eccentric couple claim to be in touch with an ancient civilisation via a Morris Minor hubcap; the wife identifies Barry as The Chosen One, to Glenda's horror. Meanwhile, Howard gets a 2-way radio to keep in touch with Marina, and Auntie Wainwright summons the courage to buy Ivy's most expensive cream cake. (Compo is missing from the last third of the episode, apart from an already-filmed final scene).

Elegy for Fallen Wellies
First in a 3-part farewell to Bill Owen. Compo suffers a fatal heart attack when Nora turns up on his doorstep wearing chorus girl clothes for a charity pageant. Of all the regular cast members (each remembering him in their own way), Clegg is the most upset at not saying goodbye, so Truly organises a human tableau spelling out "SEE YA COMPO" on the hillside. Meanwhile Howard sees Pearl in her outfit and is tortured to find his wife more attractive than his girlfriend – he is relieved when Pearl returns to her dowdy everyday self.

Surprise at Throstlenest
Clegg, Truly, Wesley and Barry take Compo's ferrets to their new home, with an old friend who shared Compo's passion for ferrets.

Just a Small Funeral
The village unites for Compo's funeral. Nora and Ivy see him in his coffin, still with a smile. Reggie Unsworth (in her 2nd and final appearance) turns up and drags Howard off to find her some black clothes to wear, but has to use Auntie Wainwright's "Emergency Sales mobile number". Pearl and Marina meet, shopping for black outfits. Edie forces Wesley to practice walking in his suit "as if it was natural". Barry wants any kind of noise in his car so Wesley can't hear the engine. Finally, Compo is buried with his wellies on the coffin, as the cortège winds slowly through his favourite scenery.

From Here to Paternity
Compo's long lost son (played by Bill Owen's real life son), arrives in the village, hoping to be reunited with his father. Who's going to break the bad news?

Some Vans Can Make you Deaf
Like father like son- Tom has the rest of the locals attempt to repair his dilapidated van, whilst making sure he doesn't have to do anything!

Waggoner's Roll
The first in a two-parter sees Tom and Barry attempt to turn a reluctant Babs into a showbiz star.

I Didn't Know Barry Could Play
Glenda buys Barry a white suit to go on a picnic but he ends up with Clegg, Truly and Wesley at the station collecting an organ for Tom. Howard buys some platform shoes from Auntie Wainwright to make him taller.

Last of the Summer Wine
I wanted this set because it had Compo's funeral in it, I have to admit I am disappointed because it does not show the dance hall bit to the story so you don't know why Compo had his heart attack at seeing Nora dancing. It is such a short bit I just don't know why they cut it out! I would only recommend it after explaining it is NOT the full version!

Love the Series; Hate the Cuts
I am a fan of Last of the Summer Wine and have purchased the DVD sets. The transfers are generally okay, but I am very upset that so many cuts were made on the "Elegy for Fallen Wellies" episode on the Vintage 2000 set among possibly others. I have seen the full episode and, as at least one other reviewer has noted, some scenes were cut especially from this episode. Most notably, the opening scene where the ladies of the village were practicing their number for whatever show they were putting on. It really helped explain the events leading up to Compo's death. Also the scene where Truly was passing out the painter's smocks to several people is missing; the one in which he handed out one to a single person survived. It is disappointing to me that the manufacturers of the set saw fit to make such cuts for the sake of not producing a third DVD for the set (my assumption; I can't imagine it was for artistic reasons). True fans of the series should be aware of the cuts. The DVD set would have definitely gotten a 5-start rating from me if it had been complete.

some parts are very good
I was looking forward to the vintage 2000 episodes but the first disc had several skips in it that proofed annoying. The second disc was fine except, I was not particularly fond of the episodes with Compo's son arriving. He does not fit in.

THE BEST!!!
WHAT CAN ONE SAY ABOUT THIS SHOW? IT CONTINUES TO PLEASE, EPISODE AFTER EPISODE. THE GUYS ARE OLDER (OR DEAD!) AND YET ROY CLARK STILL COMES UP WITH FUNNY PLOTS. A GREAT FINISH TO THE DAY, EVERY DAY. THE YORKSHIRE COUNTRYSIDE SEEMS TO BRING OUT THE CRAZINESS TO THE "Nth" DEGREE.

Last of the Summer Wine 2000
Last of the Summer Wine is my all time favorite comedy, and I looked forward to my own copy of 2000.  One thing has been very disappointing and that is the dance scene of the old ladies was left out at the beginning. That was so good.  I don't understand why that happened.  Also, the picture on the cover shows a scene from Gnome and Away that is from 2001 series.  Not that important, but come on BBC get it right!
