This review is from: A Bit Of Fry & Laurie - Series 2 [DVD]  (DVD)
Unlike other reviewers, I didn't see this first time around, being too young. Perhaps that's why I didn't take to it in the same way that they did.
I adore Stephen Fry, and British comedy, and sketch shows, so I thought this was a dead cert, but was sadly disappointed. The sketches are too long for the amount of material they contain - there is a lot of the 'This was funny the first time I said it, so I'm going to say it again, and it will still be funny. And again. And...' approach. In short, some good ideas ruined by the lack of good script editing. If you like 'catchphrase' humour ('Suits you, Sir') I guess it might appeal, but for me the funny bits were too sparse to make me finish watching the whole DVD.
So, if you weren't around the first time, and you've become fans of Messrs Fry and Laurie in more recent years, stick to House, QI and Blackadder if you want to see them in action.

your forgetting blackadder was on at the same time as this it just dated better.i loved fry and laurie as as a 11 to 13 year old school kid .it was a must see tv show for any alternative comedy fans around 1990. for other slighty faded gems from around that time look up sitcoms like colins sandwich and the comic strip presents and newman and baddiel in pieces,there was alot of new comedy around that time.i will let you make up your own mind if you love them or not.
