Product Description

Product Description

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. Fry and 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 restored; with 23 episodes this DVD will not fail to entertain!

Synopsis

This 8 disc box set features every episode of Jeeves and Wooster--Clive Exton's TV series based around characters from the P.G. Wodehouse novels. Bertie Wooster (Huge Laurie), a foppish rich gentleman, takes the title role in this sparkling comedy/drama, alongside his intelligent valet Jeeves (Stephen Fry), otherwise known as "Gentleman's Personal Gentleman". With a host of other eccentric and larger-than-life characters, each episode sees Wooster unwittingly caught up in some kind of scrape--and each time it's down to his trusty aide Jeeves to come up with a cunning masterplan to get him off the hook.

I was going to buy the separate series, but took the plunge and bought all 4 in this set. I'm glad I did. The only problem is that I thought they would last us for months, and they are that addictive that we have got through them in weeks rather than months - never mind, we can just start at the beginning again.

If there is a downside to this truly excellent series, it is the wretched anti piracy leader. You can't even skip past it. Let's face it, if I was into pirate copies I wouldn't have bought the proper version. My guess is that most people who get to see these leaders don't need to because they buy legitmately, those that do need to see them probably see copies with the leader removed - RANT over

It is like be reunited with an old and dearly missed friend.

Watched the original shows in the early 90's and bought the boxed set mainly to entertain my daughters over the long wet British summer. It is even better at the second time of watching.

The main Cast is backed up with some well known character actors, Robert Daws, Martin Clunes and John Woodnutt et al.

Catches the feel of the inter-war era beautifully. Some very accurate back grounds along with some fabulous 1930's cars. Bertie's Aston Martin and a very nice pre Aston Martin Lagonda spring to mind.

Wodehouse's comic genius for building a plot still works in the 1 hour episode format. Where the story cannot be told adequately in a single hour it tends to be split over 2 episodes .

The only annoyance is the constantly changing cast. Aunt Dahlia is played by 4 actresses, a different one in each series. This is a common practice for a number of the main supporting characters which tends to lose

Fry and Laurie are the nearest thing we have to Renaissance men in the modern age.

Everyone who has ever read Wodehouse will have their own impression, but for my money Fry and Laurie are impeccable. They absolutely nail the Jeeves and Wooster I have been carrying in my head all these years. This set is my emergency stash for when I am having a rotten day. You can put up with a hell of a lot in a day so long as you get to dip in here. I especially like the US-set episodes, when Bertram W Wooster is loose on broadway, and Jeeves picks up piano tips from the top names in Jazz. Uniform satisfaction is delivered. I think you will find this a most agreeable filmic endeavour sir.

Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie seem to have been born just to portray Jeeves and Wooster (seriously, I see their faces whenever I read a Jeeves story). I cannot believe how well Clive Exton adapted Wodehouse's books onto the little screen (except for series four), and Anne Dudley's theme sets the tone perfectly. The crew, too have done their jobs well in recreating Wodehouse's 1920s and 30s, with excellent sets, costumes, and music selections for Wooster to play.

Granada Ventures' release of the complete series blows A&E's release out of the water. This is the collection to have. With the interactive and stylish menu, a play-all button, and subtitles, life is good... I just wish they didn't force you to watch that anti-piracy thing at the beginning of EVERY disc (there are eight discs!). Of course, it would be even better if they provided a synopsis of the episodes, even a descriptive title like "Jeeves Saves the Cow Creamer" (the only thing A&E did right). I mean, "Series Two, Episode One" is hardly helpful.

Okay, as near as I can figure with this programme, actors change. Often. It seems the only actors to remain constant are Stephen Fry (Jeeves, duh), Hugh Laurie (Wooster, duh), and Robert Daws (Tuppy Glossop). Scheduling can't always be helped, but it's okay. It can get confusing sometimes, but once you figure out who's who, it no longer matters and the farce continues.

However, because television networks can be fickle, it appears that Clive Exton used up the good bits in the first two series. He takes some liberties in series three (it's okay), and lots of liberties in series four (...). Nevertheless, with a few "selective omissions", this rates five stars. More than five stars.

And yes, I think Wodehouse would have approved this adaptation.

It is testament to the performances of Fry and Laurie that they have now supplanted Ian Carmichael and Dennis Price as my visual models for the lead roles. Comic delivery, facial expressions and slapstick timing combine to perfection and the adaptation is fantastic, so that each episode in the life of the eternal bachelor and his guardian angel valet seems fresh even though the plots and themes are somewhat repetitive, and at times a bit predictable. Full marks too for the locations and sets - it's a lot less stagey than the 1970's version. The episodes in the first and second series are generally stronger but the standard is very high throughout. Richard Greene may still be my favourite Robin Hood but Fry and Laurie are the perfect pairing for Wodehouses comedy classics.

By S. Lindgren VINE VOICE on 7 July 2006
But why, might I gently enquire, did Clive Exton, who adapted the scrips from Wodehouse's magnificent original books, introduce so much slapstick? And cut and splice several unconnected stories together? Particularly when the originals as they stand appear to lend themselves perfectly to translation for the screen. The best of the lot are undoubtedly the two adapted from The Code of the Woosters in the second series, which stick fairly tightly to Wodehouse's original novel, and are magnificently realised.

Oh well. Best to accept them as they are. And they really are very good indeed. Direction is generally good, the scripts are slick, and the performances of Laurie and Fry irreproachable. They look spot on too. Some consider Fry too young -I beg to differ; it works perfectly for me, and he's thoroughly convincing.

The rest of the cast are a mixed bag -literally. Spode is played superbly well, with huge enjoyment, as is Sir Watkin Basset and Harold 'Stinker' Pinker. However, things are somewhat complicated in the rest of the cast by the fact that different people take the same role in different series, and occasionally, the same person plays a different character. To cite just a few examples:

The first Gussie Fink-Nottle, in series 1 and 2 for example, is truely brilliant. In series 3 & 4 Gussie is played by someone else (who originally performed the role of Rupert Steggles), who is, quite frankly, dreadful. Same goes for Madeline 'the' Basset. In the first series, she's played by the girl who would in series 4 play Lady Florence Craye (which she was much better suited to, despite being dark, not blonde). The second Madeline, in series two, captures the character perfectly. But the third Madeline, in series 3 & 4 is abysmal.
