The happy couple hops the Channel for new adventures
Frustrated with his daily commute and clients who don’t pay their bills, accountant William Fields (Anton Rodgers, May to December, Lillie) is ready for a change. His wife of 27 years, Hester (Julia McKenzie, Miss Marple), is always up for something new, so when William gets headhunted for a job in France, both seem willing to give it a try.
What will the Fields make of France—and what will the French make of the Fields? In these complete three series of the warm and witty Britcom, William and Hester pluck up their courage, dust off their phrase books, and set out across the Channel for Calais.

Very family oriented, with some fun play with words on risque topics, and a new French neighbor (Pamela Salem) a sexy gal who used ample episodes to slowly reveal. There's a maid (Valerie Lush) nobody understands--just shake your head, smile, like the cast and move on. Viewers of FRESH FIELDS quickly become enamored with the new cast and Hester's strawberry gray hair. "FRESH" London scenes convert to "FRENCH" vistas, quite appealing. I would recommend watching Sets one and two of "FRESH FIELDS" first, but it is not mandatory to enjoy this complete three year series that is an obvious sequel.
SUBTITLES optionally available on all 19 FRENCH FIELDS episodes, each about 25 min.

Pick up some French lingo through the laughs. Oui, oui, creme de la crème, oui, deju vu. Tres bien. How you say...vaty ex-sell-ante.
My wife and I (age 60+) loved FRESH FIELDS and also FRENCH FIELDS.
