Fleeing from the twin horrors of prospective marriage and the baleful Aunt Agatha, Bertie sails to New York with Jeeves, where he hopes to lie low but instead he is charged with minding the ultra-shy mother's boy Wilmot, son of Lady Malvern, and showing him the high life. Oddly enough Wilmot takes only too well to the night-spots of Manhattan, wearing Bertie out in the process. Tuppy Glossop also arrives, to talk about car exportation with wealthy businessman Mr. Stoker. Unfortunately Tupper's business plan is nowhere near as lofty as it should be.

Extremely Funny
7 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I haven't seen a huge number of Jeeves and Wooster episodes, of the few I've seen this one was probably one of the funniest. In content it may not be spectacular (but I thought it was entertaining), but it is amusing. Jeeves and Wooster escape to America so Bertie doesn't have to get married. While there, they get into trouble trying to help out a few friends. After that it's just complete chaos, which is what I expected, of course.

Probably the funniest thing for me were the "American" accents. I still die with laughter when I think of the aunt doing an American accent. It was very overdone and very funny. Especially her line where she goes, "What on earth is going on here?" and it sounds like "Wh-at on eeerth is going on h-ere?" Very amusing, I must say. I still quote that line in that exact accent.

I'm American myself, and I thought how Americans were portrayed was nothing short of hysterical. The police arrive at one point for a suspected swindling situation and immediately start shooting. If that's what the English think of us, it's pretty funny. My friend and I got a lot of laughs out of the cops with itchy trigger fingers. I guess I could be offended, but I can't quite manage it. I still think it's the accents - too funny.

Anyway. Good episode, very amusing especially if you're American (not that I know what it's like to watch it and be something else). Watch it and have fun!
