Under the Radar DVD of the Week: 'No Job for a Lady: The Complete Collection'
This week, the oddest DVD to appear on release lists is:
“No Job for a Lady: The Complete Collection”
In this era when Hilary Clinton made a credible run for the U.S. Presidency and women hold powerful seats in all levels of government, the 1990 British TV series “No Job for a Lady” might seem a quaint relic from the earliest dawning of feminism. Even so, “No Job for a Lady: The Complete Collection” (due out on DVD Tuesday) adds a bracing dose of English wit and sarcasm to our historical perspective on the battle of the sexes.
Bringing together 18 half-hour episodes from the Thames Television series’ three seasons, the collection poses a novelty of the times when a woman (egads!) is elected by the left-wing Labour Party to a seat in the clubby male domain of the British Parliament. Cheeky Jean Price (Penelope Keith of “To the Manor Born”) finds herself a newly minted Member of Parliament and must immediately contend with the scorn of archly chauvinist fellow MPs while navigating the Machiavellian world of Westminster.
