Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

The first three episodes of this third series of Jeeves & Wooster take place in Manhattan. In spite of the change of scene, our hero continues to get into the most terrible scrapes, and it falls to the faithful Jeeves to save the day, frequently. When he realises that Honoria Glossop may once again have her sights set on his precious bachelorhood, Bertie Wooster sets sail for the New World. Here he helps old pal Tuppy to make a business deal. At the same time he has to keep Motty Malvern on the straight and narrow, while helping two writer friends deceive their prying relatives. The final straw comes in the shape of Cyril Bassington-Bassington, the stage-struck son of Aunt Agatha's closest friend.

Back home in England, Bertie and Gussie Fink-Nottle switch identities, the lunatic Roderick Spode reappears, Bertie is forced to commit burglary (again!), and there's a spot of trouble with a tin of treacle and some communists. The unflappable Jeeves is Bertie's only hope. Although the humour in this collection sometimes feels a little less assured than in earlier episodes and the new actor playing Gussie is a disappointment, the central performances of Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry are as good as ever. Few actors have ever brought such beloved characters so convincingly to life. --Simon Leake

Product Description

All six episodes from the third series of the popular P.G. Wodehouse adaptation. Aghast at the idea of marrying a Glossop, Bertie (Hugh Laurie) flits across the pond to America - leaving Jeeves (Stephen Fry) to sort out his mess for him. Manhattan offers little solace for young Wooster, however, who is soon in dire need of assistance from his unflappable manservant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome return of Jeeves and Wooster on to DVD ! 20 Jun 2002
Format:DVD
Finally the third series of the much acclaimed TV series of Jeeves and Wooster is on DVD, and on the whole its worth the wait. This series finds Berty and Jeeves on the other side of the great pond together with their usual trials and tribulations in life. Some great shots of NY during the early part of the 20th century accompanied with plenty of period background music which go towards really capturing the era.
Great to see this series now on DVD but the quality of the DVD is somewhat disappointing with a poorer picture and sound quality than series 1 & 2. - shame, but none the less a must for all Jeeves and Wooster fans.

By the time Series 3 of `Jeeves and Wooster' came into my life, I was already immensely fond of these character inhabited by the mind of P.G. Wodehouse. My parents bought this during the summer of 2002, and I was really looking forward this duo of Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie playing Jeeves and Bertie Wooster.

This season is divided into two halves. The first half of three episodes is set in New York, America where Bertie and Jeeves stay for some time to escape the wrath of Aunt Agatha. The second half of three episodes has Bertie and Jeeves return to London, England and spend some adventures with Gussie Fink-Nottle, Madeline Bassett, Spode, Sir Watkyn and the rest in the heart of the country. The series has got better and dynamic in series 3, with a new director Ferdinand Fairfax taking the helm with much excitement and energy.

EPISODE 1

Bertie and Jeeves take the ship to New York at the start of this brand new series as they hope to escape the wrath of the formidable Aunt Agatha who wants Bertie to marry Honoria Glossop again. On the voyage, Bertie meets up with Tuppy (Robert Daws) who's also going to New York to purchase a car from a very rich American salesman. I really enjoyed the ship sequences where Bertie's dining with the captain and Tuppy's getting his attention by throwing a bread roll into the captain's tomato soup which splashes all over him. I also enjoyed it when Bertie tries to woo some 'fancy finny' (a female passenger aboard the ship) only to be spoilt and interrupted by Wilmot Pershaw that Bertie's meant to look after by his mother. Those sequences of the ship really made me feel like I was living through the 1920s/30s itself filled with such glamour and leisure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Goosey goosey goosey! 16 Jan 2009
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The dim, cheerful aristocrat and his impeccable manservant find that America is just as troublesome as England in the third season of "Jeeves and Wooster." While the American stories lack the usual all-out hilarity, the second half of the season is pure comedy from start to finish.

With Aunt Agatha determined to marry him to the horrible Honoria, "Bertie Sets Sail" for America. But domineering Lady Malvern wants Bertie to babysit her creepy son and keep him out of mischief -- except Monty is determined to live a Paris-Hiltonesque life.... every night. Bertie tries to escape to the country, only to find that his pal Tuppy is besotted with one of Bertie's ex-fiances.

The next is definitely "A Full House." Bicky wants to live in Manhattan, without his ducal dad knowing. And Rocky wants to live in the country, but his aunt wants him to "experience New York." Ever the loyal friend, Bertie volunteers Jeeves and his apartment to keep up the dual ruses. But when both the duke and the aunt show up unannounced, how can Jeeves and Bertie keep them from running into each other?

Aunt Agatha sends theater enthusiast Cyril Bassington-Bassington to New York, so Bertie can babysit him. The problem is, Cyril throws away the "no theatres" letter on the boat. As a result he ends up getting a part in an off-Broadway play, and Bertie happily follows the successful show all across America. But when Cyril attacks a sponsor's son, the entire play may go under... with Aunt Agatha in the audience.

Going back to England doesn't help matters, since Aunt Agatha insists that Bertie go to Deverill Hall and woo Gertrude Winkworth (who is also a pal's girlfriend). His pal Gussie is also required to present himself to Gertrude's mother.
