Toodlepip and all that!

Just spent an evening with my extended family watching the first disc of the first season of Jeeves and Wooster starring Steven Fry and Hugh Laurie (yes, THAT Hugh Laurie). How funny! How charming!

That is my favorite thing about Netflix--they have a wonderful selection of A&E, BBC, television stuff. Far and away better than our local Blockbuster.

Anyway, this was good stuff--my dad, who normally sleeps through everything except action pictures, watched every minute of it. 10 thumbs up (2 apiece!) from the MamaT clan.


Oh yes, "Jeeves & Wooster" was one of my favorites. If you like that humor, you will also enjoy "Yes, Minister" and "Yes, Prime Minister." I love British comedies, but not all. Some are real dogs. Stay away from "Absolutely Fabulous" and anything French & Saunders, and "Are You Being Served" is unspeakably bad.

I can't imagine anyone else in the role of Bertie Wooster, and yet, Hugh Laurie is wonderful as Dr. Gregory House -- and the characters couldn't be more different!
