Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect pairings 11 May 2009
By Emanon
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Wonderful! 15 Nov 2008
By Maximus VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd forgotten just how good this is 4 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
This set is perfect for when there's nothing on telly that you want to watch (seems to happen more often nowadays?), but when you also don't want to watch a feature film. Each episode is beautiful - something to be savoured. Jeeves' remarks are priceless, and to cap it all everyone in my family loves them - even my 5 year old daughter. Well done (again) Fry & Laurie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic comedy 6 Aug 2010
By Banrock
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally... 20 April 2012
By S. Lindgren VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
...A release of this wonderful series which has had both picture and audio properly remastered (and presumably repaired as required). The original releases were acceptable on a smaller screen, but in recent years, as screen sizes have grown with the transition to flat LCD / LED et al, they looked at best mediocre. The 21st Anniversary release here is far better, with a clean transfer, no digital nasties and well balanced audio, which was occasionally a problem in some episodes in earlier releases.

The series itself has lost none of its appeal, and Wodehouse is currently seeing something of a renaissance, just as other early-mid Twentieth century English authors / playwrights such as Terrence Rattigan. The leads in the shape of Fry and Laurie are superb, and widely regarded as the definitive screen portrayals of Bertie Wooster and his extraordinary gentleman's gentleman, Jeeves (notwithstanding a handful of complaints that Stephen Fry looked too young). There are problems of course: Clive Exton introduced a considerable amount of slapstick humour into the scripts, particularly in later episodes, which never quite worked as well as those which stayed closer to the original stories. Consistency also seemed to be an issue with the cast; many performances lived up to the high standard of the leads, notably Spode and Sir Watkin Basset. However, things are somewhat complicated by the fact that over the course of the four series, other characters were portrayed by several different actors.

The first Gussie Fink-Nottle, in series 1 and 2 for example, is brilliant. In series 3 & 4 the role was taken by another actor (who originally performed the role of Rupert Steggles), who is, quite frankly, dreadful -quite possibly reflecting a change in direction and scripts.
