Product Description

Product Description

Bertie Wooster is feeling a bit shy of the mark when his new valet reports for duty, bringing with him a much-needed cure for the effects of the previous night's excesses. On the strength of this sterling debut, Jeeves is formally retained, and the unsuspecting servant is thrown headlong into the glorious mix of overbearing aunts, unbidden guests, friends in need and romantic entanglements that is Bertie's lot in life.

To millions of devoted fans, P.G. Wodehouse's "Jeeves and Wooster" stories are a delightful obsession, an irresistible and irreverent romp through the drawing rooms of Edwardian England's tweedy elite. Now, these comic masterpieces come to life in acclaimed productions with an extraordinary cast that features Hugh Laurie (Sense and Sensibility, Strapless) as the well-meaning but dim aristocrat Bertie Wooster, and Stephen Fry (Wilde, Cold Comfort Farm) as Jeeves, his hilariously arch and resourceful valet. This 8-DVD collector's set includes 23 digitally restored and remastered episodes.

There are not a lot of glowing words I say about this DVD collection that haven't already been said, but I will try. Having read numerous books about the characters of Jeeves and Wooster, and listened to BBC radio collection performances, I have to say all the characters seem to hit the mark in bringing P G Wodehouse's creations to the screen. I have laughed a lot watching the amazing Bertie Wooster botch well-meant attempts to help(?) his friends. Mr Laurie and Mr Fry really do all they can to bring out the humor and wisdom of the stories. The other characters, both the recurring ones and the infrequently appearing ones, are also spot on with their roles. The twins, Claude and Eustace, had me rolling on the floor with their relentless pursuit of the singer. If you enjoy P.G. Wodehouse's stories, you will truly enjoy these DVD's. I know I will watch them over and over, as I have listened to BBC tapes I bought in the 1980's. Two very good comedic actors put their marks on some excellent Jeeves and Wooster stories. I only wish there were more of them in the series to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars What ho! June 5 2009
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
P.G. Wodehouse wrote funny stories. Obscenely hilarious comedy stories about dim young aristocrats, overbearing aunts and very clever servants.

And of all his creations, the most memorable is the ill-fated and blue-blooded Bertie Wooster and his megabrained valet Jeeves, immortalized by Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry. "The Complete Jeeves & Wooster" brings together all their madcap, bizarre little adventures in England's upper echelongs, with many a disastrous engagement and stint in prison.

Bertie Wooster (Laurie) is in need of a valet, and after a wild night out, the low-key, brainy manservant Jeeves (Fry) is sent by an agency to deal with Bertie's everyday needs.

But Jeeves doesn't just fold Bertie's hankies and give him hangover tonics -- he keeps Bertie out of all kinds of trouble. Predatory young beauties, ditzy idiot pals of Bertie's, and domineering aunts trying to marry him off, Bertie is always in hot water -- and Jeeves always is on hand, with a plot cooking in his impressive brain, to haul his hapless employer out.

Among the many problems they have to tackle: a stolen cow creamer, a little book of insults directed at an amateur Hitler, a starvation tactic that ends in disaster, American millionaires, a flirtation with fatherhood, scandalous memoirs, Bingo Little's countless infatuations, the havoc wreaked by mustaches, pearl necklaces going missing, and many compromising situations that begin -- or end -- unwanted engagements.

"The Complete Jeeves and Wooster" is quite faithful to Wodehouse's original stories -- some stories are combined and others are separated, but they draw heavily on his kooky, bizarro prose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jeeves & Wooster - highly recommended March 4 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The superb acting and comedic timing of Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie bring the beloved characters of Jeeves and Wooster to life. The valet is always aiding the kind-hearted but "mentally negligible" employer in zany schemes. Shenanigans abound in London, the countryside and New York City. The music, fashion, design and gentility of this era are wonderfully presented. For those who say it's impossible to put Wodehouse on the screen, I say "pish". Well done BBC! The 23 episodes you'll want to see again and again.

Thoroughly enjoyable series. A good pace and full of clever british humour. Laurie and Fry play excellent off each other. I could watch it over and over.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series, poor DVD quality Feb. 13 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I never watched Jeeves and Wooster before and I loved the series. I was quite disappointed with the quality of the DVD's - picture is not very sharp, particularly in some of the earliest episodes. After I got used to the poor picture I was entertained by the content thoroughly, so I suppose if picture quality is not a huge deal to you it's very worthwhile.

Jeeves and Wooster is impeccably acted by Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry. Hugh Laurie is Bertie Wooster, deemed a `wastral', a `drone', and a `jelly' by his aristocratic aunts who... Read more

Firstly, let me make it clear than I consider P.G. Wodehouse to be the greatest writer of the English language of the 20th century, bar none. Read more
