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.
Having seen what Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie have to offer, it is difficult to understand why they have not had more widespread success. Their humour is fantastically witty and posesses the sophistication and finesse that other programmes so sorely lack. Stephen Fry's manipulation of the English language is always amusing and his talents fused with those of Hugh Laurie are a potent mix. Indeed it may sometimes remind the viewer of their other collaboration on 'Jeeves and Wooster'.
It is great news that this series has finally been committed to DVD and not simply a 'best of'. I would urge all comedy fans to buy this DVD and enjoy what is a top class comedy programme.
Their writing is amazing and their performances are doubly so. I highly recommend buying these discs. Fantastic.
I found the QI program on Acorn TV, I wish it was available on Amazon. If you get a chance to see it - do so. Each half hour is very funny and to some extent informative. There is a book of some of the information available on Amazon, but like any good comedy it is better to hear it rather than just read it.
