it was amazing

British humorist P. G. Wodehouse’s most famous character invention, Jeeves, the quintessential gentleman’s gentleman, has become an iconic figure. He has even captured the internet with the popular “Ask Jeeves” site. Jeeves’s gentleman, Bertie Wooster, the often wrong but always cheery has almost reached the same exalted state. They are both brought to vibrant, laughable life by the voice of Jonathan Cecil in “Jeeves and the Mating Season.” When Gussie Fink-Nottle is temporarily incarcerated, Bertie sees fit to impersonate Gussie at Deverill Hall in order to keep the engagement between Gussie and Madeline on course. No one knows Gussie at Deverill Hall, so this imitation seems possible. No so. Not when a number of really wacky aunts and a capricious dog are involved. Leave it to Bertie to turn what seems like a plausible plot into a madcap mix-up. It’s laughter all the way and Jeeves, of course, saves the day. – Gail Cooke
