Blandings is a British comedy based on the Blandings Castle Stories, by author P.G. Wodehouse. The series is a comedic depiction of Lord Elmsworth in 1929 at Blandings Castle. He lives there with sister Connie, and his son Freddie. The show also outlines their many houseguests, nieces and the many boyfriends. Lord Elmsworth's deepest desire is simply to be left alone with his prize pig, but this never seems to occur. His family is constantly creating drama and adding comedic and frustrating moments to his life. The series also depicts Lord Elmsworth's butler, Beach, loyal and always somewhat helpful. The show depicts the antics of a cast of comedic characters and family members, who often find themselves in troublesome situations. Lord Elmsworth is often attempting to avoid family members, and avoids interacting with them by going to extreme means to avoid their company but never is quite able to pull it off. The series includes such depictions as elder sister Charlotte threatening to stay on indefinitely at the castle, or younger brother Clarence threatening to publish a memoir, which threatens to expose secrets of the family. Other episodes include a cast of friends and other family members who equally complicate and add comedic drama to the episode.
