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.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.
