Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and delightful series, now available on Amazon. April 19 2012

We used to watch this series on PBS and were delighted when it came out on DVD. It is a well written and well acted series. The Brits seem to have a knack for being both funny and satirical. We have purchased the entire series, including Fresh Fields. Thanks for the laughs. It's nice to watch a comedy without bad language and inuendos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh Humor From a Not so Odd Couple. Convincing relationship. Dec 14 2011
By Harold Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Funny mid-life couple in love, not badgering each other. Their day, he an accountant, she (40) on the constant search of new creative outlets. Hester (Julia McKenzie-`Miss Marple' `Cranford') surviveS plots of activity & adventure. William (Anton Rodgers-`Lillie' `Affairs of the Heart') saves the day or plays along. Always a surprise laugh to end each episode. Sonja is a cameo, but son-in-law Peter (Philip Bird) returns as does daughter/wife Emma, but she is played by 2 different gals.
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.
'89 Season 1: 1-1 Chunnel Vision -to move or not to move
1-2 William the Conquered -find living quarters

2-4 Home and Away -Wm's tour de farce
2-5 Sale or Return -Will field's save their farmhouse?
2-6 Double or Quilt -boules finds a new player
2-7 Noel Noel -a holiday special episode
'91 Season 3: 3-1French with Tears -arrested X 2
3-2 The Merry, Merry Pipes -Hester's shows estates, Wm plumbs
3-3 Make for the Hills -a camping escape, but Paris? in-law returns, Henry (Eric Dodson from Fresh Fields), Margaret (new actress)
3-4 Surprise, Surprise -wedding anniversary blipp
3-5 Darling Daughters -daughter discipline disasters
3-6 Hail and Farewell -the end with "It's only Sonia" (Ann Beach returns)

Especially recommended for older married couples. Very believable for that lot.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A taste of good comedy Aug. 10 2012
By William E. Bryson - Published on Amazon.com

We watched all of these shows on TV years ago starting with Fresh Fields when Hester and William were in England, then French Fields when William got a new job in France. The show is up-to-date today as it was in the 80s and there are many good laughs in the realistic dialogue. Great actors, fun to watch and we wish there was more of this clean language, proper programing today. Great value and we'll play it over every two years till we push up daisies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun in French Fields! Jan. 9 2014
By SitcomBuddy - Published on Amazon.com

I enjoyed the Fields so much in Fresh Fields, I had to have their continuing series in France. I think it might be even funnier, and more well-written, than their first series. Very very enjoyable! The Fields are just a very amusing couple to spend time with.
