Editorial Reviews

P.G. Wodehouse's beloved Blandings Castle stories, which follow the foibles of an eccentric aristocrat, his peculiar family, and the ramshackle ancestral home they share, come to vivid life in this witty British series. Timothy Spall (The King's Speech) and Jennifer Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous) sparkle as Wodehouse's madcap protagonists.

Series 2 finds the dysfunctional inhabitants of Blandings Castle caught up in more uproarious adventures, from dodging an insane asylum to thwarting a most unseemly memoir. Clarence and Connie must also contend with a spate of unwelcome houseguests, including the irascible Duke of Dunstable (Harry Enfield, Skins) and their dreadful older sister, Charlotte (Celia Imrie, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), who seems determined to make Blandings her permanent home. With guest stars including Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones) and Robert Bathurst (Downton Abbey), these seven pitch-perfect adaptations capture Wodehouse's masterful skewering of the British upper classes.

Classic British country humor grows on you. I grew to laugh lots at Series One.
Blandings, Series 1
Series 2 begins with belly-good humor, a spoof on British upper society class. PG Wodehouse wrote Blandings Castle novels from 1915 to 1975. All family friendly. Adaptations for TV with the characters and stories of the zany lot at Blandings. It is contemporary produced [2014] in a nostalgic Wodehouse way. Filming was done in Northern Ireland countryside, a plus.
Bonnie fun. "I said it first, so yah boo sucks and no returnsies." [an example of a dialogue quote]

Timothy Spall plays Lord Clarence in all episodes, not your brightest Lord of the manor.
Jennifer Saunders is bossy sister Lady Connie, a matchmaker of sorts.
Tim Vine (new) as butler Beach. Jack Farthing is Clarence's son Freddie, a womanizer.
Ron Donachie returns as Angus McAllister (gardener/gillie) is aye a hoot wit his braw Scot's brogue.

SDH subtitles [English] for all episodes:
1---Throwing Eggs --will Duke of Dunstable (Harry Enfield) succeed in committing loony Clarence? for pottiness, Beach and Freddie to the rescue from scrambled eggs. Ron Donachie (`Game of Thrones', `Titanic') as McAllister is also in episodes 5 & 7.

2---Dirty Work at the Crossroads -Will Clarence's frightful sister, Charlotte (Celia Imrie -`Bridget Jones' `Titanic') move into Blandings? Permanently. Plus the Empress Pig heist & rescue plot. This episode as well as 3 & 7 have Robert Bathurst (`Downton Abbey' `Emma') as Sir Gregory.

3---Hallo to All This -Clarence's brother Galahad is writing a scandalous memoir. Can Freddie help can the manuscript?

Format: DVD
Blandings is a hilarious comedy series ripe with British humor. The show revolves around a zany cast of characters including their pet pig. They are an upper class family that are more than a little eccentric and the laughs keep coming with every new episode. This box set contains seven fun shows.

Throwing Eggs - The Duke of Dunstable attempts to get Lord Clarence committed and Beach and Freddie must come up with a rescue plan.

Dirty Work at the Crossroads - Lord Clarence's sister comes for a visit but hopes to make it more permanent. Empress the pig also turns up missing.

Hallo to All This - Clarence's brother is writing a book that could shame the whole family. Freddie hopes to do a little "editing" before the books hits the presses.

Lord Emsworth Acts for the Best - A Hollywood star visits Blandings in the mist of the furnace giving out and Clarence's misshapen attempt at growing a beard.

Sticky Wicket at Blandings - Connie is on the prowl and hoping to get the attention of Col Fanshawe.

Necessary Rhino - It looks like Clarence may have sold forged artwork.

Custody of the Pumpkin - Connie wants Freddie to find a wife, but the one she picks happens to be a cross dresser.

There were definitely lots of laughs packed into this box set. The bonus stills in the photo gallery were a great addition. I loved seeing all the fabulous shots of the cast. All around great series!

What fun!! I had not seen series 1 of Blandings, so I wasn't certain what to expect. I love P. G. Wodehouse, but I wasn't sure the humor of the Blandings stories would translate well for a modern audience. I was delighted to find the series is wonderful! Timothy Spall and Jennifer Saunders are remarkable, making me laugh at their perfect performances, bringing to life the unusual but loveable brother and sister Clarence and Connie. The troubles with other family members who are often house guests at Blandings, set the stage for the action in each episode. Of course Clarence's devotion to The Empress, his prize pig and the interventions by the butler Beach to sort out difficulties add to this highly entertaining take on the privileged class living in the 1930's.. I'm going to search out series 1 to watch. If you are a Jeeves and Wooster fan, Blandings is a must to add to your collection. If you don't know Wodehouse, it is a great place to start.

Series Two of "Blandings" brings the P.G. Wodehouse cast of characters alive in all it's snappy, crackling glory. Gone are the hokey pig-farts and rising-locks of (the still pretty decent) season one. In their place we have cute plots, witty dialog, a to-die-for setting (Crom Castle gives Highclere a run for the money), and a supurb cast headed by Jack Farthing's winsome, stammering Freddie. On top of this, the show accurately captures Wodehouse's pan-decade flair, combining a bit of 1920s and 30s art deco seamlessly with 40s and 50s glam.

The only point against this show is that it falls several times into that curious BBC tradition of giving guest characters gawdawful lisps. I guess this must be hilarious in England, but I find it excruciating.

I've been waiting a long time for a worthy successor to "Jeeves and Wooster. Blandings fits the bill. Long may it run!
