Product Description

Product Description

All six episodes from the second series of the popular television series, based on the novels by P.G. Wodehouse: Bertie risks the wrath of Aunt Dahlia when he bungles the purchase of a silver milk jug; Bertie and Jeeves attempt to recover an incriminating notebook lost at the fancy dress ball by Bertie's chum, Gussie; Bertie finds himself pursued by an amorous spinster; Jeeves is ready to give his notice when Bertie takes up playing the trombone; Bertie is held hostage on the yacht of a wealthy American who believes him to have designs on his daughter; and Bertie considers Bobby Wickham as his bride - much to Jeeves' chagrin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 23 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The second series kicks off with an excellent two-parter "The Code of the Woosters" and has another four episodes to delight Jeeves and Wooster fans. Excellent - nothing else to say.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 8 Jan 2001
By GW
Format:VHS Tape
Series two is, in my opinion, the best of the four series of Jeeves and Wooster. Some of the more faithful adaptations of P.G Wodehouse's books are here, and the situations in which Bertie Wooster finds himself and Jeeves gets him out of, are not so farcical, but very funny.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great TV - Bad DVD copy 11 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Fry and Laurie are off once again as the wonderful Jeeves and Wooster with the able assistance of a cast of brilliant characters. It was a joy to watch. The performance is worth 5 stars at the least.
However Granada cheated us again with a poor quality picture. This time providing no extras whatsoever !! They show their respect for the buying public and their product by this kind of behaviour. Do they really believe I they can get away with it ?
I will not be buying any more of this series until they produce a better product. I hope that Amazon passes on this review to Granada.

The second series of episodes from `Jeeves and Wooster' and it gets better and better. Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are back as Jeeves and Wooster and are on true form.

After enjoying the first season so much, I was delighted when dad bought series 2 to continue the enjoyment of watching this bumbling young inept master and his loyal man-servant. The show becomes more brighter under a new direction from Simon Langton, but still as funny and cleverly told with such good stories from the mind of P.G. Wodehouse. There's a certain quintessential Englishness about the whole thing which makes it all the more appealing.

One point of criticism I have to make about this series is that the supporting characters we know from series 1 are played differently by a different actor/actress. For example Madeline Bassett and Bobby Wickham are different compared to how they appeared in series 1 which made it all the more confusing. It was turning out to be more James Bond style of casting for my liking. But Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are still the same as ever and that's what counts as I'm sure the production term had in mind always.

EPISODE 1

The first two episodes are based on the novel 'The Code of the Woosters' which I've read and thoroughly enjoyed. This episode (as well as the following episode) is set at Totleigh Towers in Gloucestershire where for me is the setting for my favourite episodes of `Jeeves and Wooster'. This is because some of my favourite characters are from there.

5.0 out of 5 stars I say! 27 Oct 2005
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry return as the scatterbrained aristocrat and his brainy butler in the second season of "Jeeves and Wooster." The series based on P.G. Wodehouse's classic novels is almost as funny as the books, with the goofy characters and tangled storylines... which are always untangled by Jeeves.
Hugh Laurie, who is now winning raves in the TV show "House," is wonderfully manic as Bertie, using his expressive face and gangly body like a less demented John Cleese. And Stephen Fry embodies the catlike grace and intelligence that Wodehouse always wrote Jeeves as having. The impeccable hair and ever-present suit don't hurt.

"Jeeves and Wooster" only got stronger in its second season, full of disgraced newt-fanciers, angry Nazis, and stolen helmets. I'm sure P.G. Wodehouse would have been quite proud.
