Appeared in Library Journal on 2009-11-15:
Like a Mary Poppins for adults, P.G. Wodehouse's Jeeves is the ideal valet. He makes certain through the series' 23 episodes that his young gentleman, Bertie Wooster, a perfect example of the lovable if feckless British upper class, is properly attired and fed, properly turned out for the zany activities in which he engages, and, most of all, properly protected-from himself! Good--natured Bertie (House's Hugh Laurie) gets into the most hilarious fixes, but Jeeves (Gosford Park's Stephen Fry) manages to extricate him with aplomb, always unflappable and ever vigilant in observing his professional traditions. Public library users will welcome this enormously entertaining "British odd couple," while high school and college students taking courses that include the works of Wodehouse can also benefit. Highly recommended.-Sheila S. Intner, Prof. Emerita, Simmons GSLIS at Mt. Holyoke Coll., South Hadley, MA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Summaries
Main Description
Bertie Wooster is the classic young British man of means, blessed with a touch too generous a heart and a slight deficit in the noggin department. Jeeves is his hilariously arch and resourceful valet, a "Gentleman's Gentleman" without equal who sees Bertie through the never-ending swirl of hopeless old friends, indomitable aunts, unbidden guests, and romantic entanglements that dominate his life. THE COMPLETE JEEVES AND WOOSTER includes all 23 episodes of the acclaimed series based on P. G. Wodehouse's beloved stories. Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are spot-on as the unflappable butler and his overwrought employer, and their inimitable misadventures are masterfully adapted for the screen by Clive Exton (Poirot).
