What Ho!, you lovely young ladies and frolicsome chaps. Weve put together a sizzling collection containing all the scrummy stories from our very first television series. All the hooha began when I got myself a brand new valet, my good man Jeeves. Since then Ive had a ballyho time of it with all kinds of close shaves. Ive had to help old Bingo Little with a bit of a girl problem, and waste splendid summer days at the Drones Club Golf Tournament and Twing village fete. On top of everything my dreaded Aunties, Agatha and Dahlia, have been matchmaking again and trying to entangle me with all kinds of frightful females. Oh well, never mind, Jeeves and I are in for a spiffing time at the shoot later today. Not even we can get into any more scrapes with just the boys, their dogs and their gunscan we?!
Top hole, old bean.

Fry and Laurie. Marmite I'm guessing. Personally I'm a great fan but I can see they might be a bit self-indulgent for some. Added to which Jeeves and Wooster also Marmite, except that I did like the concept initially of an underdog being all-knowing while his incredibly rich master is less knowing. After an hour of What Ho!, jolly japes, blighter, spiffing, dashed awful, crickies, I was less enamoured. After 2 hours really not enamoured at all. Similarly there is a foot-tapping jazz melody that plays during the opening credits which is absolutely corking. It is then played, in variations, continually, as background. After 2 hours you will want the cornet player to push his mute in to the hilt.
I would suggest that 1 episode a week will leave you wanting more. I wish I had done this.
