While class structure is the basis for society then, individuality and eccentricity within each class is also present, and is a key to the comedy.
What is also interesting is that the author's just didn't imagine a lot of the scenes but is supposed to have drawn from real relationships and manners of speech for his portrayal of the upper class.
This TV show was a hit when it was released in the s. The comedy in the original series is accentuated by the generation gap that became very clear by our time.
In the s the cast of characters was accepted as normal: wealthy but uneducated rural landowners, pushy aunts, exclusive men's clubs, and head over heels romance among men and women who are in college or at in their first job, a woman's search for marriage, and Wooster's desire to maintain his freedom as a single gentleman apparently also an element of the comedy, since single men were the exception, not the rule, during the s.
The way Wooster reacts to various demands from people is a recurring source of entertainment. His wealth and friendliness, and no small amount of Jeeves ingenuity and clear thinking, ultimately carry the day.
One would think Wooster learns over time but, as far as I can remember, he has the same attitudes through pretty the whole show, perhaps again a demonstration of the self-perpetuating nature of class, wealth, and connections.
Jeeves and Wooster form a classic friendship though Jeeves always maintains respect due to Wooster, his family, and his friends.
Having also read some of the books one can say this production is quite close to the original dialogue and scenes. The idea of a mentor is explored in a light and fun way because Wooster gets into complicated social situations that require sorting out, or some kind of personal sacrifice along the way.
While this show is only a comedy it is yet one more contribution to world culture from the BBC and Great Britain. One person found this helpful.
The first episode I watched was actually season 2, in my experience shows often don't hit their stride right out of the gate. Now, having seen the entire series, I do feel season 2 to be the most acessible, perhaps of the entire run.
But here in season 1 we still find the characters we love played to perfection by Mr. Fry and Mr. Laurie, and I laugh out loud at every episode.
If you're new to the series, or to Mr. Wodehouse himself, the first episode where our main characters meet is, I think you may feel free to disagree a bit less madcap than those that follow, so you might jump in on the second episode.
But beware! Many episodes have connecting arcs and plot lines that will be hard to grasp unless seen in the proper order. Jeeves and Wooster as television entertainment is so far above all shows currently running on American television as to be in an entirely different galaxy.
So start here, my friend! And then dive into the fabulous ocean of delight that is all of PG Wodehouse's works. Laughter, after all, does good like a medicine.
I confess I'm addicted to Brit TV productions but I feel that most US viewers, once into the first couple of episodes, won't be able to stop.
PG Wodehouse, the author of the stories, spent most of his adult life in this country. His Jeeves and Wooster stories were beloved by many and were incredibly successful.
The TV series is faithful to his writings and anchored brilliantly by actors Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry as they portray the bumbling but lovable upper crust gentleman and his all-knowing, ever efficient valet.
The supporting cast is rich in talent and a testament to perfect casting. The episodes are set in mid 's England with hilarious forays to the US.
I think this is comedy at its highest level. Enjoy the entire three season series! We already knew this was funny because we read Wodehouse.
Adapting it to the screen is another matter. I can't imagine it could've been done any better--the actors, the theme music, the wardrobe people.
I want to say I especially admire the sets, especially when they're in New York City. We know that Wodehouse was stuck in the 30's with this as well as other writings.
A fantastic, awesome reflection of this era, in particular the Art Deco. I've never seen a finer adaptation except for Blandings.
A work of beauty. Perfect in every way. I have nothing but praise for the comedic skills of Fry and Laurie.
I own all the seasons on DVD already but I am buying them for my Fire for easy access while settling in for the night.
Also, so much of comedy is time-sensitive. It may work for a while but does not stand the test of time.
Wodehouse was a comic writer whose work is timeless. I can still read his works and fall off the couch laughing.
I am eternally grateful to Fry and Laurie for having brought Wodehouse to the screen in admirable fashion.
I love these guys tho' they mightn't be to everyone's taste. One prominent character, Aunt Dahlia , was played by a different actress in each of the four series.
Francesca Folan played two very different characters: Madeline Bassett in series one and Lady Florence Craye in series four. The character of Stiffy Byng was played by Charlotte Attenborough in series two and by Amanda Harris in series three and then by Attenborough again in series four.
Richard Braine, who took over the role of Gussie Fink-Nottle in series three and four, also appeared as the conniving Rupert Steggles in series one.
Four series were produced, with 23 episodes in total; each series but the first consisted of six episodes, with all being broadcast each spring from to The five episodes of the first series were directed by Robert Young and first aired in April and May The second series, directed by Simon Langton , aired in April and May The third series, directed by Ferdinand Fairfax, aired from March to May Fairfax also directed the six episodes of the fourth and final series, which initially aired in May and June The producer was Brian Eastman and the executive producer was Sally Head.
In retrospect, Michael Brooke of BFI Screenonline called screenwriter Clive Exton "the series' real star", saying his " adaptations come surprisingly close to capturing the flavour of the originals" by "retaining many of Wodehouse's most inspired literary similes.

While Bertie Wooster is approximately 24 years old in " Jeeves Takes Charge " , Jeeves's age is not stated in the stories, and has been interpreted differently by various illustrators and adaptations.
However, there are a few hints in the books regarding Jeeves's age. Jeeves has a long employment history, and he is older than Bertie Wooster. In Ring for Jeeves , Jeeves is described as resembling "a youngish High Priest of a refined and dignified religion".
In the reference work Wodehouse in Woostershire by Wodehouse scholars Geoffrey Jaggard and Tony Ring, it is speculated using information provided in the Jeeves canon that Bertie's age ranges from approximately 24 to 29 over the stories, and that Jeeves is roughly ten years older than Bertie, giving an age range of 35 to Wodehouse to scholar Robert A.
Hall, Jr. It doesn't if you go by when the books were written. The Damsel was published in and the Butler in But I always ignore real life time.
After all, Jeeves—first heard of at the age presumably of about thirty-five in —would now be around eighty-five, counting the real years. In appearance, Jeeves is described as "tall and dark and impressive".
As Bertie says, Jeeves is "a godlike man in a bowler hat with grave, finely chiselled features and a head that stuck out at the back, indicating great brain power".
Bertie frequently describes Jeeves as having a "feudal spirit". Jeeves enjoys helping Bertie and his friends,  and solves Bertie's personal problems despite not being obliged to do so.
He regularly rescues Bertie, usually from an unwanted marriage but also from other threats, such as when he saves Bertie from a hostile swan or when he pulls Bertie out of the way of a taxi.
Jeeves generally manipulates situations for the better and is described as "a kindly man" in Ring for Jeeves.
Jeeves is also stubborn when opposing a new item that Bertie has taken a liking to, such as an alpine hat or purple socks.
While he often stays on in spite of these radical objects, he can only withstand so much: the worst case is when he resigned after Bertie, privately labeling him as a "domestic Mussolini ", resolved to study the banjolele in the countryside.
Even when Bertie and Jeeves are having a disagreement, Jeeves still shows sympathy, as much as he shows any emotion, when Bertie is in serious trouble.
Often wearing "an expression of quiet intelligence combined with a feudal desire to oblige",  Jeeves consistently preserves the calm and courteous demeanor of a dutiful valet, and hardly displays any emotions.
When he feels discomfort or is being discreet, he assumes an expressionless face which Bertie describes as resembling a "stuffed moose"  or "stuffed frog".
Bertie says that Jeeves is persuasive and magnetic. He notes that there is something about Jeeves that seems to soothe and hypnotize, making Jeeves effective at calming down an irate person.
He is much affected when a parted couple reconciles, and tells Bertie that his heart leaps up when he beholds a rainbow in the sky.
It is not unusual for Bertie's acquaintances to ask for Jeeves's help directly without discussing it with Bertie, and Jeeves is willing to assist them even if Bertie is not involved in any way.
The highest in the land come to him with their problems. For all I know, they may give him jewelled snuff boxes. Jeeves presents the ideal image of the gentlemanly manservant, being highly competent, dignified, and respectful.
He speaks intelligently and correctly, using proper titles for members of the nobility. One of his skills is moving silently and unobtrusively from room to room.
According to Bertie, Jeeves noiselessly "floats" and "shimmers". I hadn't heard him come in, but you often don't with Jeeves. He just streams silently from spot A to spot B, like some gas".
Jeeves has an encyclopedic knowledge of literature and academic subjects. He frequently quotes from Shakespeare and the romantic poets.
Well informed about members of the British aristocracy thanks to the club book of the Junior Ganymede Club , he also seems to have a considerable number of useful connections among various servants.
Jeeves uses his knowledge and connections to solve problems inconspicuously. Jeeves does not try to argue this claim, though at least once he says he does not eat a lot of fish,  and in one conversation, Bertie states that he favours kippers , while Jeeves prefers ham.
One of Jeeves's greatest skills is making a special drink of his own invention, a strong beverage which momentarily stuns one's senses but is very effective in curing hangovers.
The drink is Jeeves's version of a prairie oyster. Jeeves has knowledge in more dubious subjects as well. He is well-informed about how to steal paintings and kidnap dogs.
He finds it necessary to get Aunt Dahlia to knock out Bertie with a gong stick in " Jeeves Makes an Omelette ", though he agrees with Bertie not to use this sort of tactic again.
Jeeves often reads intellectual, "improving" books, including the works of Spinoza , Shakespeare , and " Dostoevsky and the great Russians". Banks ,  and regularly reads The Times , which Bertie occasionally borrows to try the crossword puzzle.
Bingo says that he saw Jeeves "swinging a dashed efficient shoe". One of Jeeves's hobbies is fishing, which he tends to do during his annual summer holiday, typically taken at Bognor Regis.
Bertie sees him fishing in Joy in the Morning. Jeeves claims that travel is educational, though Bertie suspects that Jeeves has a Viking strain and "yearns for the tang of the salt breezes".
The premise of the Jeeves stories is that the brilliant valet is firmly in control of his rich and unworldly young employer's life.
Jeeves becomes Bertie Wooster's guardian and all-purpose problem solver, devising subtle plans to help Bertie and his friends with various problems.
In particular, Jeeves extricates Bertie Wooster from engagements to formidable women whom Bertie reluctantly becomes engaged to, Bertie being unwilling to hurt a woman's feelings by turning her down.
Bertie is usually unaware of the extent of Jeeves's machinations until all is revealed at the end of the story.
On one occasion, Bertie acknowledges and accepts his role as a pawn in Jeeves's grand plan, though Jeeves objects, saying that he could have accomplished nothing without Bertie's cooperation.
For the most part, Bertie and Jeeves are on good terms. Being fond of Bertie, Jeeves considers their connection "pleasant in every respect".
When Bertie must stay by himself in a hotel in " The Aunt and the Sluggard ", he struggles without having Jeeves there to press his clothes and bring him tea, saying "I don't know when I've felt so rotten.
Somehow I found myself moving about the room softly, as if there had been a death in the family"; he later cheers himself up by going round the cabarets, though "the frightful loss of Jeeves made any thought of pleasure more or less a mockery".
Wooster has always been gratifyingly appreciative of my humble efforts on his behalf". Jeeves has firm ideas about how an English gentleman should dress and behave, and sees it as his duty to ensure that his employer presents himself appropriately.
When friction arises between Jeeves and Bertie, it is usually over some new item about which Bertie Wooster is enthusiastic that does not meet with Jeeves's approval, such as bright purple socks, a white mess jacket, or a garish vase.
Bertie becomes attached to these less conservative pieces and views Jeeves's opposition to them as "hidebound and reactionary",  marking him "an enemy to Progress".
The conflict is resolved by the end of the story, typically after Jeeves has helped Bertie with his latest problem. Bertie, grateful, agrees to have it Jeeves's way.
He does not object if he learns that Jeeves, foreseeing that Bertie would agree to give up the item, has already disposed of it.
Bertie considers Jeeves to be a marvel, and wonders why Jeeves is content to work for him, stating, "It beats me sometimes why a man with his genius is satisfied to hang around pressing my clothes and what not".
In an early story, he says that Bertie is "an exceedingly pleasant and amiable young gentleman, but not intelligent. By no means intelligent.
Mentally he is negligible — quite negligible. Nonetheless, Jeeves's view of Bertie's intelligence has apparently softened by the first novel, when Jeeves says that Bertie "is, perhaps, mentally somewhat negligible, but he has a heart of gold".
In the twenty-first century, a " Jeeves " is a generic term for any useful and reliable person, found in dictionaries such as the Oxford English Dictionary  or the Encarta World English Dictionary.
In the late s up until , Ask. The name of Jeeves has also been used by other companies and services, such as the British dry-cleaning firm Jeeves of Belgravia and the New Zealand company Jeeves Tours.
Sayers in , were partially inspired by Bertie Wooster and Jeeves. The Jeeves canon is a series of comedic stories following Bertie Wooster and his valet Jeeves, consisting of 35 short stories and 11 novels.
With minor exceptions, the short stories were written and published first between and ; the novels later between and While the series of stories featuring the character of Jeeves are often referred to as the "Jeeves" stories, the series is also called by other names such as the "Jeeves and Wooster" or "Jeeves and Bertie" stories.
Bertie Wooster narrates in the first person all the stories but two, " Bertie Changes His Mind " which Jeeves himself narrates in the first person , and Ring for Jeeves which features Jeeves but not Bertie Wooster and is written in the third person.
In the story, Jeeves's character is minor and not fully developed, and Bertie's surname appears to be Mannering-Phipps.
The first fully recognisable Jeeves and Wooster story was "Leave It to Jeeves", published in early As the series progressed, Jeeves assumed the role of Bertie Wooster's co-protagonist.
Most of the Jeeves stories were originally published as magazine pieces before being collected into books, although 11 of the short stories were reworked and divided into 18 chapters to make an episodic semi-novel called The Inimitable Jeeves.
Other collections, most notably The World of Jeeves , restore these to their original form of 11 distinct stories. The collection The World of Jeeves first published in , reprinted in contains all of the Jeeves short stories with the exception of "Extricating Young Gussie" presented more or less in narrative chronological order, but with some variations from the originals.
An efficient method of reading the entire Jeeves canon is to read The World of Jeeves , followed by the eleven novels in order of publication.
The novels generally mention characters and events that happened in previous stories. While Carry On, Jeeves features some earlier stories, it also includes stories that occur after events in The Inimitable Jeeves.
The short stories are set primarily in London, where Bertie Wooster has a flat and is a member of the raucous Drones Club , or in New York City , though some short stories are set around various stately homes in the English countryside.
The novels all take place at or near an English country house, most commonly Brinkley Court in four novels and Totleigh Towers in two novels.
The Jeeves stories are described as occurring within a few years of each other. For instance, it is stated in Jeeves in the Offing that Aunt Dahlia ran her paper for four years, and not three, as is shown in Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit.
Nonetheless, some scholars have attempted to create a rough timeline. Morris suggested that the Jeeves canon spanned approximately five years, stating that four Christmases are accounted for, and another must have passed during Bertie's time in America in the early stories, making five in all.
The stories follow a floating timeline , with each story being set at the time it was written, while the characters do not change and past events are referred to as happening recently.
This results in the stories following "two kinds of time", as the characters hardly age but are seen against the background of a changing world.
For example, in Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit , when Bertie is surprised to hear that his Aunt Dahlia wants to sell her weekly paper, he remarks, "It was like hearing that Rodgers had decided to sell Hammerstein.
However, certain Edwardian era elements, such as aristocratic country houses and traditional gentlemen's clubs like the Drones Club, continue to be prevalent throughout the series, despite becoming less common in the real world.
The setting is generally an idealised version of the world, with international conflicts being downplayed or ignored.
Illness and injuries cause negligible harm, similar to downplayed injuries in stage comedy. The plots and dialogue of the Jeeves stories were strongly influenced by Wodehouse's experience writing for the stage, and the playlike quality of the stories is often comically exaggerated.
For example, many stage comedies involve two sundered couples, and this number is increased to five for the plot of the Jeeves novel The Mating Season.
Bertie frequently uses theatrical terminology to describe characters and settings. For instance, in Joy in the Morning , Bertie says that Lord Worplesdon's study "proved to be what they call on the stage a 'rich interior', liberally equipped with desks, chairs, tables, carpets and all the usual fixings.
For example, several lines of text in the first chapter of Right Ho, Jeeves are rendered in script format. Wodehouse uses a number of what Kristin Thompson terms "delaying devices" to keep the competent Jeeves from solving problems too quickly.
For example, Bertie sometimes cannot get help from Jeeves initially because Jeeves is away on vacation. In multiple stories, Jeeves delays solving Bertie's problem because he disapproves of an object Bertie has acquired.
Jeeves, planning in the background, can estimate the extent of Bertie's mistakes in advance and incorporate them into his own plan in the end.
Wodehouse has Jeeves consistently use a very formal manner of speaking, while Bertie's speech mixes formal and informal language.
These different styles are frequently used to create humour in the stories, such as when Bertie has to translate Jeeves's erudite speech for one of his pals who is not familiar with Jeeves.
Jeeves says his plan "cannot fail of success" but has a drawback in that it "requires a certain financial outlay". Bertie explains to Corky that Jeeves means "he has got a pippin of an idea, but it's going to cost a bit".
Jeeves often tells Bertie about his machinations at the end of the stories, but does not always reveal everything to Bertie.
This can be seen in the only story narrated by Jeeves, " Bertie Changes His Mind ", in which Jeeves manipulates events without telling Bertie.
The reader can infer some of Jeeves's offstage activity from subtle clues in Bertie's narrative. For example, in " Jeeves and the Kid Clementina ", Bertie ends up in a tree while trespassing as part of a task outlined by the mischievous Bobbie Wickham , and is confronted by a policeman.
The only information given to the reader about how the policeman got there is when he says, "We had a telephone call at the station saying there was somebody in Miss Mapleton's garden.
