This was the cheapest to buy, but with todays 10% discount it's cheaper still. So, if you want to see what Dr House looked like with a smile when he was younger, then you can. Oh, and it is an excellent series. I mean it has the genius Stephen Fry in it.
Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie were among the most successful acts of the alternative comedy show Saturday Live/Friday Night Live and after a Christmas pilot in 1987, the BBC commissioned a series in 1989.
Fry and Laurie explored a seemingly inexhaustible list of subjects with a delicious turn of phrase and elaborate wordplay. The hilarity-included regular acts such as not so super spy Tony Mercheson and his boss Control, yuppies, John and Peter, as well as the concluding cocktail recipe to the accompaniment of Mr Music with plenty of Vox Pops.
With four brilliant series of great satire, comic genius and an hilarious use of language, Fry and Laurie are definitely at the top of the comedy tree.
All four series of Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie's witty sketch show. All your favourite characters are present and counted for, including yuppy couple John and Peter and secret agent Tony Mercheson.
