Editorial Reviews

Product Description

They're completely incompatible and completely hilarious

Take one flinty American feminist. Add one steely, ever-so-supercilious British butler. Strike them together -- with some of wittiest dialogue ever scripted for television as tinder -- and you've got the crackling comedy of the classic British comedy Two's Company. The irrepressible, Emmy®- and Tony®-winning Elaine Stritch joins English theatrical lion Donald Sinden as the perfectly mismatched pair. This collection brings together all 29 episodes for the first time, with every wisecrack as fresh as ever. Watching the obvious on-screen chemistry between these terrific co-stars, you'll agree that Two's Company means two's comedy at its biting, bickering best. As seen on A&E and public television.

DVD BONUS FEATURES INCLUDE Stritch and Sinden biographies and cast filmographies.

Review

An entertaining Britcom that achieves a high level of sophisticated theatricality through the witty scripting by series writer Bill Macllwraith. -- DVD Talk, August 2007

But one can easily classify it as great fun. Stritch makes "Two's Company" a must for her fans. -- Playbill.com, September 2007

Stritch's comic timing is quite extraordinary. -- Connecticut Post, August 2007

The late 1970s aka the Bicentennial era. What could be better Britcom for the era than a battle of wits between an American and Englishperson? That is exactly what happens in Two's Company. From the minute you see the opening credits roll with the stars singing the title song in the guise of the American Eagle and the British Lion, you know you are in for a romp. The premise comes about right away in the first episode on the first disc. Dorothy McNab (played to the hilt by veteran stage presence Elaine Stritch) is a "pre Jessica Fletcher" American mystery writer residing in a duplex England. When she is not typing away her latest murder, she is entertaining guests and naturally finds it hard to handle both at the same time, so she inquired an employment agency about supplying her with a butler and handyman. On a wet rainy day, while typing out her latest novel, coming to call is the well experienced and veddy British Robert Hiller (played equally to the hilt by Donald Sinden). From the second they make eye contact, sparks fly, she doesn't care that much for the British in general and he has his own views on Americans and women for that matter. Although it rarely comes up verbally, it is implied in his eyes we are still in the 1770s not the 1970s, so like I said a perfect series for the time it aired. Despite these clashes, he appears to be just what the doctor (I mean author) ordered. The truth eventually comes out, she gives him the job when he proves his cooking and coffee making skills are better than anyone she knows, and he takes the job because he was looking forward to a job where not only he has his own flat to live in, but he doesn't have to drive himself ragged taking care of a whole family as he did at his last job.Read more ›

If you have never seen this show on PBS I suggest you rent or buy it. This is such a funny show. Both actors are great and very funny. I'm 31 grew up watching BBC shows on PBS and all have been great and this has been added to the list of great BBC shows. And since there is nothing really on TV to watch anymore I would suggest getting "Two's Company", kick back and begin the laughter. Now there are a few episodes that are-ok but it is still worth the purchase.

I ran across this Brit-com quite by accident, and was glad I did. I loved Elaine Stritch who plays an American mystery author Dorothy McNab living in London and Donald Sinden (whom I developed a crush on lol) who perfectly plays Robert her Britsh butler, he is spot on. I loved this series. One of my favorite episodes is on Series One episode 4 called The Patient. Robert trips over Dorothy's shoe and hurts his ankle, and he has National Health, which Dorothy doesn't know anything about. She can't get an ambulance so she takes him to the hospital for treatment,and it is very funny, I was laughing so hard.

There are 4 disc's and 29 episodes. The chemistry between the two I think added to the enjoyment of the series. The bickering between them is very funny. I loved this series. In my opinion the humor is similar to the humor in Open All Hours (which I also love) where you know even though the characters might disagree, they still care for each other. I hated for the last episode to end, I wanted more of Dorothy and Robert adventures. I was able to pick this up at a great price. Glad to have it as part of my Brit-com collection.

Now that both leads have died (astonishingly within months of each other), it's worth revisiting the only TV show that these two theater legends had any success with in their respective careers. The old antipathy between Britain and America has long been the butt of rather tired jokes down the nearly 300 year history of the United States. But this show is a great set-up of the old joke made new by the phenomenal chemistry of the two leads. Elaine Stritch is Dorothy McNabb, an American thriller writer living in London who hires a very, VERY English butler Robert, played by Donald Sinden.
This is not a conventional sitcom by any means. The feel is much closer to watching televised theater, making the situations extremely insular (nearly everything happens in Dorothy's stylish London townhouse). And despite the fact that you can definitely tell this is a 1970s TV show, because the comedy is all verbal, there is a kind of timelessness to it. This is a show drunk on wit and snarkyness, propelled by the great leads and the occasional guest actors. Whole plots hinge on single situations, from a ladies luncheon to a visit from the tax man, a new dog, an annoying salesman, a trip to the hospital, and even a dispute about garbage collection. While the culture-clash aspect of their personalities hovers in the background of their characters, the overall plots are more concerned with their verbal spars, personal games of one-upping, or conflicts with a third party. Dorothy usually emerges as the victorious one, but sometimes they form a truce to thwart someone making their life difficult. As time goes by they form a kind-of fondness for each other, but there is always the bite of their different personalities and opinions
This show has class, wit, and even a little charm... enjoy the spars, clashes, and conflicts of a hidden comedy gem!
