Your Opinions and Comments

8 / 10
The third time out for the Fry/Laurie pairing playing the upper class playboy, and his gentlemans gentleman.

The Plot
We start this series finding that Bertie is deep in trouble, very nearly getting married to one of the circle of eligible young women in his circle. The code of the Woosters would require him to go through with the attachment rather than let down a lady.
Therefore with some nimble footwork, he is aboard a liner heading for New York, away from potential fiancees and medlesome aunts.

But the reach of the Aunts is worldwide, and he soon finds himself safely ensconced in New York, but with Aunt demands on his time.

After the first three episodes and a number of scrapes
which Jeeves manages to steer him out of, we find his Aunt`s catching up with him and its back home to Blighty.

The Cast
Perfectly matched as ever, Fry and Laurie deliver their usual seasoned performances.

The Visuals/Audio
A little washed out in some of the outdoor shots, and a plain stereo sound track.
All very nicely done though. Period settings and cars etc.

The Extras
Nothing really, although in this one we have nicely animated menus in full 5.1 sound.

Great stuff, an excellent series of short humourous episodes to cheer up any wet weeknight.
