Never watched the show but I hear about it all the time. Worth checking out?

I didn't get where I am today by watching two men, with incredibly unconvincing Cockney accents going, "What's up with you then? What's up with me then? Yeah, what's up with you then? I'll tell you what's up with me, I'm right browned off" then both of them getting up out of the lake at six o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of hot gravel, work twenty hour day at mill for tuppence a month, come home, and their Dad would them to sleep with a broken set of Royal Doulton with the hand-painted periwinkles.

Jeeves and Wooster is one of the most perfect shows ever conceived. It helped that they were so respectful of Wodehouse's material.

JEEVES "I assumed this got into your wardrobe by accident, or was placed there by an enemy?"
WOOSTER "But I bought it in Cannes!"
JEEVES "And wore it sir?"

Jeeves disapproves

If somebody can do this AND a Blackadder reunion, I would be very, very happy.

Wooster: You know, I can't help feeling Jeeves that I could do better justice to this song if I understood what the words meant
Jeeves: Oh, I doubt that, sir.

Yes. Also watch a few episodes of MI:5 where Laurie played a "Six" man working with (kind of, also cross purposes) with the "Five" team.

There's a reason I think he'd be the best choice to play "the Doctor", especially the one that ended the Time War. You'd really believe he was "the oncoming storm" and he'd still be able make everyone laugh.

I don't know who those two guys are, so I prefer a different Fry:

I just finished getting up to date on QI. I always loved Laurie. Now I have a big gay boner for Fry.

You can download Saturday Night Fry mp3s off the internet for free. Google it and listen, it's way better even than the Fry & Laurie's. Their best stuff by far.

Nice, but it will never happen (egos, money, etc.)
 
2013-06-23 09:07:51 PM

sno man: I'd pay to see that.


Yup.  And if you've never seen or heard if Flanders & Swann, they're worth tracking down.  A F&S-style revue would be perfect for Fry and Laurie.

So...highly successful men who have been close friends and collaborators for decades will be stopped by egos and money?

seems legit.

You've never heard of Stephen Fry or Hugh Laurie?  I might accept not recognizing Fry's name, but Hugh Laurie was Dr. House, for fark's sake.

Huge fan...loved that show.

If they do this, they should periodically invite their Oxford pals along.

for example, here's Emma Thompson on tormenting Stephen Fry.

Hard to say.  I am a fan of both men, find them very smart and funny, so I was looking forward to finally checking out their old show.  But I watched about six episodes and only got about two decent laughs out of it.  The rest of the time I was just watching, kind of puzzled, unable to figure out where the humour was supposed to be in any of the sketches.  By all means check it out, but for my money, if you haven't seen everything ever done by Mitchell & Webb, go do that instead.

Nice.  Get Tony Slattery in on it, too.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat. A Bit of Fry and Laurie wasn't really my cup of tea - but I love Jeeves and Wooster, plus their turns in various Blackadder series. I can't remember the last time Rowan Atkinson was in something funny, though - I'm not sure he'd still be able to be that biting, sarcastic jackass from the good years if they were to do a new Blackadder series.

This sort of "musical revue" thing sounds like it could be interesting, though - the musical bits on Jeeves and ABOFAL were the highlights of both shows.

Oh, and I second everything Gawain said about Mitchell and Webb. Geniuses, the both of them.
