This review is from: A Bit of Fry and Laurie - Season Two (DVD)
It must be said that 'A Bit of Fry and Laurie' did not suffer any drop off in quality after it's first series. In fact the opposite is the case, as it appears to have gained comic momentum in the intervening time.
The clever, rapier wit that is employed by the duo is still present, however now it has been further honed in. Fry and Laurie have now identified their social targets and are inent on pursuing them with renewed vigour. On the chopping block are the governing Conservative party of the time, as well as much of the middle/upper classes, specifically the obnoxious, mobile phone toting yuppies of London's banking and financial sector.
However this is not to say that the series takes on too serious a tone or is any way "preachy". The pair still find time to have fun with more traditional (and hilarious) sketch show characters and to indulge their comical whims. If you were a fan of the first series then you definitely won't go wrong with this DVD as it is certainly worth a decent chunk of anyone's money.
