This review is from: A Bit of Fry and Laurie - Season One (DVD)
Capitalizing on the success of "House," the BBC have finally decided to release "A Bit of Fry & Laurie" on DVD, and I couldn't be happier. I got hooked on Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry while watching the Blackadder series, and have followed them through to other projects (Laurie's "House" and his book, "The Gun Seller" and Fry's fantastic program in the UK "QI") with great satisfaction. However, being from the States, and living there during the run of "A Bit of..." I hadn't been able to see much of the series til now.
The DVD doesn't disappoint. The duo's comic prowess comes through clear as a bell from the start of the disc. Ironic, urbane, witty, and cheeky--it's British sketch comedy at its best. There's a lot of great word play, and great comic timing throughout. I'd highly recommend it to any fan of BritCom.
