  • As Time Goes By

    "Just as charming as the television show"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I don't know what there is about "As Time Goes By" but I am a fan of the TV show and I very much enjoy listening to these 6 shows on audio. The acting is first-rate and the story lines are cute and warm. I hope they bring more of the episodes to audio listening, as they are so enjoyable and relaxing.

  • Jack Benny Spoofs

    "Hardcore Jack Benny fans may like, but..."

    Overall

    Story
    What would have made Jack Benny Spoofs better?

    Funnier writing. Some Jack Benny programs are full of fun and laughs; these shows are not. There's not much wit here.


    Has Jack Benny Spoofs turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I will be careful which Jack Benny


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators???s performances?

    Yes


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Jack Benny Spoofs?

    Pretty much all of it. There's little wit, the live audience on the soundtrack doesn't seem to know if and when to laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    Jack Benny shows vary in quality. These shows are at the lower end. Insults are too direct, gags are cliche'-ridden, there's not too much inspired comedy here.

  • "A wonderful time!"

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    This is a great radio play closely following the BBC T.V. series. The characters are well written and charming. The situations they find themselves in are entertaining without being fantastic or unbelievable and their interactions reveal a very genuine warmth. A healthy dose of sarcasm and self deprecating humor keeps the program from becoming too sweet. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the company of Lionel and Jean. The only improvement I could ask for is the ability to buy the next few series!

    Dame Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer star as old flames Jean Pargetter and Lionel Hardcastle. Their love story was all set for a happy ending in the 1950s when Jean was a student nurse and Lionel, a young army officer. But he was posted abroad and they lost touch. Thirty-eight years later, Lionel has returned to London to publish his autobiography and, through a strange coincidence, he is reunited with Jean who has set up a secretarial agency.

    This landmark production, perhaps the most ambitious radio project ever attempted, began when Star Wars creator George Lucas donated the story rights to an NPR affiliate. Writer Brian Daley adapted the film's highly visual script to the special demands and unique possibilities of radio, creating a more richly textured tale with greater emphasis on character development.
