Reviews

Digitally re-mastered 21st anniversary edition.

Perfectly capturing the wit of P.G. Wodehouse's novels, this impeccable series traces the insane shenanigans of Bertram Wooster and his faithful butler Jeeves. Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are simply perfect in the roles of the steadfast butler Jeeves and his dapper master Wooster. Set against a 1930s backdrop of Hooray Henries and splendidly indomitable aunts, Jeeves battles against Wooster's relentless list of prospective brides to hilarious consequences! This is a simply enchanting series which has been digitally re-mastered and with over 19 hours will not fail to entertain.

For me, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie were, are and always shall be, the quintessential Jeeves and Wooster! As English as Pimms and cucumber sandwiches, this glorious P.G. Wodehouse creation lifts the veil on the altogether more carefree life in 1920's high society, ironically observed through the wit of one of our great writers. And who better to bring it to the screen than two of our greatest comic talents.

Sadly, P.G. Wodehouse has suffered of late from the tight mouthed disapproval of Political Correctness. Landed gentry, dutiful servants, dim-witted police characatures, debutantes obsessed with marriage and black and white minstrel groups are not always popular topics today. I wish that some people could just get over their angst about "toffs" though, and see this for what it is - a wry and witty gallop through an entirely different era. This is comic farce, and it pokes fun at absolutely everyone.

I doubt this series could have been made today, but thank heavens it was, getting on for twenty years ago. As such, please remember that fact when watching these DVDs. The style of filming is a far cry from today's frenetic jump-cut output. But that just adds to the experience, and enhances the other-worldly feel of an altogether more innocent, genteel era.

There have been some voices of dissent about the story line here and there in this series. One feels that new scripts - partially removed from the writings of Wodehouse and involving a trip to the States - were created to help sales of the series in the US. They are, occasionally, less than wholly successful. Having said that, the majority of episodes are true to form, and the American settings do provide an interesting contrast to the usual round of English country houses and the glorious Drones club.

Fry and Laurie as Jeeves and Wooster... What a perfect pairing of perfect pairings.

So what if Clive Exton sometimes plays fast and loose with the original material? The adaptations are still written with the greatest respect for that material so that the spirit of the world of Wooster is there in spades and Wodehouse's mastery of the English language would, I suspect, still shine through no matter what you tried to do with it.

Modern ITV drama and comedy generally comes in for quite a lot of bashing, but back in the 1980s and 1990s, Granada TV was producing an output that was amongst the best that British television has ever produced, and this series, produced at during the same period they were creating their definitive SHERLOCK HOLMES series lives up to that fine pedigree. The productions are beautifully performed - the comic timing is spot on - and always look expensive with a fine attention to the period detail.

Perhaps the biggest shock of all comes when you see just how young Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie actually look at the time of filming, but also how utterly convincing they are. Is Stephen Fry still channelling Jeeves when he presents QI? I suspect so. I also suspect that any HOUSE aficianados might be amazed at Hugh Laurie's performance here as the difference between the two characterisations is nothing short of phenomenal.

Fry and Laurie ARE Jeeves and Wooster but someone really needs to explain to the producers what 'digitally remastered' means. Classic comedy it might be but the quality is video at best.

In an era where 90% of films and tv programs have sex, fast cars and gruesome scenes, it is simply wonderful to sink into a armchair with a cup of tea and allow this fantastic show to seduce you. For me this show ticks all the right boxes. Stephen Fry: tick, Hugh Laurie: tick, brilliant characters: tick, old timely feel: tick, Hugh's piano playing: tick and the duo of Fry and Laurie: tick.

Set in an era that never existed for most people, the lives of the upper class in the 1920's Britain. I have heard there has been disapprovals on certain themes such as the black faced minstrels and the overwhelming need for the women to find a husband. But surely there can be no objections. Although the thought of people going around as black faced minstrels nowadays would be unheard of, it was common practice at the time. And if Wodehouse wrote it in his books they could hardly leave it out. Its like making a film about Jesus and not crucifying him on the cross because it is horrific, or making a film set in 1900's America and not show racism towards blacks. No one is saying it is acceptable by todays standard, but you have to be authentic.

Anyways, I wander. The acting of Fry and Laurie are superb. Stephen Fry IS Jeeves. He embodies the character and never fails to crack me up with a disapproving comment towards Berties atire (whilst maintaining his respect and excellent use of language). I don't think I could give a better compliment to Stephen Fry here.
Hugh Laurie is positively adorable as old Bertrum. His ability to combine humour with his upper class presence is excellent. We instantly feel sorry for him each time he gets tangled into an engagement or forced into doing a impossibly hard task. This shows our affection for the character.
