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.

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.

This series is perhaps the funniest thing I have ever watched. Fry and Laurie do outstanding jobs as Jeeves and Wooster. The English humour and wit is not only superbly written but acted believably. I bought this as a birthday gift for my husband after seeing one episode. We both enjoyed the series immensely. It is hard to find humour that is not crude or filled with scantily clad women. This humour is intelligent rather than crude and it is not offensive.

When Bertie duck-hooked his drive at the chef just off the first tee in the Drones Club golf tournament, I was... well... hooked!!!

Look, just get the series, then kick back and enjoy. Watch it again... and again... etc. Then if you can pull away from your set long enough, go cancel your cable subscription because it's so addictive and everything else will seem 2nd rate. Getting Jeeves & Wooster was like finding the perfect champagne; it always goes so well on the palette. Even my 15 year-old daughter thinks it's a riot!

I doubt many people are aware of this fine TV comedy. You are in for a fine treat if you are here. The casting is wonderful, as are the costumes, music, and set design. The series is faithful to Wodehouse's stories. If you are already a Wodehouse fan, as am I, it will give you an extra thrill to see the series rendered so flawlessly. This is definitely a collector's item to be enjoyed over and over again and shared with the family. Tinkerty Tonk!

The reason Blackadder vol. 4 was so successful was simply, in two words-Fry and Laurie. Endless talent combined with great writing helped support the acting "clinic" these two put on throughout each series. These guys are the benchmark of which others are judged! This is a timeless masterpeice. A must own.

I've enjoyed watching this series from it's inception. What has been interesting is sharing it with my family. My kids were only in grade school when they first watched, and they seemed to get as big a kick out of them as us old parents did. Now they are devoted Wodehouse fans and enjoy his other stories too. The characters seem to enjoy being dragged thru the ringer of the old master PGW. If you enjoy comedy, 1920's flavor styles and music, sumptuous sets, or even gorgeous views of old England, you should enjoy these enough to bear through them with pluck and your chin up.
