3.0 out of 5 stars Little depth in American satyrical characterisations, 14 Jan. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Jeeves And Wooster: The Complete Third Series [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I was quite dissapointed by the first of the two tapes in the set, as in my opinion the strength of Woodhouse has always been the characterisation of the 'grotesques' in English society - across the class spectrum. The Americans portrayed in this series are done so with little punch, and the characters seem peppered in merely to provide an 'across the pond appeal'. I am a fan - really I am - of Woodhouse and of the other tapes in this series, but the first in this box set failed to get that sense of social claustraphobia that Berty et.al need in order to get in and out of pickles. The second tape returns to Blighty and the claustraphobia returns - the characters are endowed with an appropriate package of nervous ticks and affectations. Hoorah. Buy it , it's worth it, but if you only buy one - buy another one.
