This hilarious show should be brought back
3 October 2004 | by (southern California) – See all my reviews

I watched this show as a teenager and found it to be side-splittingly hilarious. It introduced me to the works of PG Wodehouse, who became one of my all time favorite authors.

PG Wodehouse poked fun at his fellow Englishmen (and women) with affectionate, yet sharp humor. And no one had the mastery of Wit that Wodehouse possessed! His works brought this era of the British Empire to life with nostalgic color. These adaptions of his work are by far the best; the two leads have nimble comic timing that is brilliant.

I remember one show (this was almost 30 years ago, so please forgive my memory!) in which there was a manor house full of hunting enthusiasts, and they kept shocking a visiting vegetarian with their manic blood/gun lust. Wodehouse loved to pierce the veneer of political correctness (in a light-hearted way) even then.

This show should be brought back. I searched for it in vain at the PBS store that was in San Diego. Wodehouse should be introduced to a new generation of teenagers.
