    Cripes Jeeves it looks like we`re back for another. We`ve got all six episodes of our splendid fourth series in one marvellous double DVD box set.

    Bertie has returned, with Jeeves of course, to that glittering metropolis New York, hoping for a peaceful existance. The peace doesn`t last long though as he is soon beseiged by his wayward cousins along with the dreaded Aunt Agatha. When former fiancee`s also start appearing, Bertie realises only too well that his bachelorhood is in jeopardy. One thing`s for sure, it will take the not inconsiderable skill of Jeeves to save the day, but as he struggles to save his hapless employer from more trouble, it seems the only way out is to set sail for England.

    Your Opinions and Comments

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

    The Plot
    Its the usual scrapes for Bertram. Avoiding engagements left right and center, whilst trying to keep the Aunts at bay. It ends up in the last episode with him actually getting to the alter, whilst being engaged to two different girls. Will Jeeves enormous fish powered brain be enough to save the day?

    The Cast
    Perfectly matched as ever, Fry and Laurie deliver their usual seasoned performances, supported by most of the usual characters, although the Aunts have tended to vary throughout the series.

    The Visuals/Audio
    Reasonable video for a few years old made for TV stuff. Some grain and sometimes a little washed out.

    The Extras
    Nothing. The animated menus and soundtrack get better with each series, but we are lacking anything that might be considered a real extra.

    A fine round up of the talents of Fry and Laurie with the writing of Mr Wodehouse. One can`t but help be amused.
