Jeeves and Wooster (with Fry and Laurie)

Anybody else in total love with that old BBC series, Jeeves & Wooster? I've dusted off my first-season DVDs and watch about twice a day. Every episode. Well, I have them on while I do other things.

IN addition to the fabulous Wodehouse story lines and impeccable acting, there is the costuming, the set design, the cinematography .... oh! It's just sublime.

I am totally tickled, today, to realize that a friend has painted her house in almost the same colors as Bertie's flat, in her attempt to sell the house. I told her the color combo was the best yet, not realizing the J&W similarity.

Fry has said that he's nothing like Jeeves, which makes his portrayal even better. Jeevesian behavior and attitude has helped get me through some recent situations which otherwise would have made me just incredibly annoyed.

That's all for now. :drool:

I just watched the first season! It is a hilarious show. I really like it. I haven't watched the other series yet, but I will once I finish Upstairs, Downstairs.

I'm so glad you like it! i need to get Upstairs, Downstairs. I wanted to watch it back in the day but never had a chance, between being a WOHM and having children who made TV-watching impossible. :D

My parents are big fans are both and am watching both shows with them. I blame my parents for my love of British television.

Huge fans at our house. The child and I had a little discussion when she wanted to take my DVDs to college with her. I had a terrier named Bertie Woofster.

I love the show! The acting, the characters, the dialogue, the evening dress, the Jeeves *swoon*!

Have any of you read the books by Wodehouse? They're great in their own way - but this might be one TV series in which I like the book and the series equally.

      Yeah, that's me.  Though to be fair I am trying to learn Italian and Spanish.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
