Format: DVD
Okay - what was Jakes Progress? Basically one of the best TV drama's of the 90's that's what it is. Overshadowed by GBH - this follow up to it - is simply superb. Okay - fair enough - it takes a while to settle down - but from episode 2 onwards it soars. The whole tale enfolds marvellously. Evryone in it acts wonderfully - and it never lets up. Even by the final episode it doesn't run out of steam with a wonderful bit set in an ameteur dramatic rehearsal. It's just amazing - it really is. To tell you the story would ruin it - but it's basically how one small act can basically turn everything upside down! And everything else basically unfolds from there. Watch it - buy it - tell your friends - its a forgotten gem that deserves so much more. I guarentee YOU will LOVE it!!!

This is one of, if not the best, TV mini-series I have ever watched. I saw it, if memory serves, in the mid-90's, broadcast on Canada's CBC television network. I'm delighted to see it has finally been released on DVD, but very disappointed to see that so far it's only available in UK's PAL 2 DVD format. Please, somebody make this excellent program available on DVD in North America, in the NTSC standard here. Please!!!

Wow. I never saw this when it was shown on T.V. Having read the reviews, I decided to buy it, and am I glad I did!! Every episode had me gripped and kept me glued right to the very end. To say I enjoyed it is an under-statement.

There are many faces to Robert. He has shown again how talented an actor he is when given a good script. Great supporting cast. Watch and enjoy.

This has been running on UK digital channel More 4 as part of the 25-year anniversary of Channel 4 (2007) and it is fantastic! It continually surprises, and avoids cliches and sentimentality while being very moving. It's amazing dialogue writing because it never goes entirely where you think it will. I can't do justice to how good it is. I am just gutted I can't find this to buy anywhere in the shops, and will have to--for the 4th night--stay awake from midnight (til 2am!) for the final episode. This gem has not been looked after well enough by the DVD powers that be.

By julilah on 8 July 2012

This is the best drama I have ever seen. I saw it first in the 90's and whilst discussing children with my stepson I remembered it and had to buy it when I knew it had become available. It has everything from pathos to comedy, from deep and meaningful self analysis to lightweight throwaway lines. All the acting is superb. I had to see it in as little time as possible and dropped everything else in order to watch it. Now I will send it to my stepson and I can't wait to see what he makes of it......One not to miss.

I watched the series many years ago on TV and the story is as good today as it was then. I would recommend this DVD to anyone who enjoys a story about family life.It is sad and funny at the same time.I will not comment on each character as I don't want to spoil the story line but the acting is superb by each character. Very well casted and very well acted by all the cast.
