Jeeves and Wooster is a British television comedy-drama series that aired on ITV from 1990 until 1993. The show is an adaptation of the Jeeves stories written by P.G. Wodehouse and it is set in the 1930s. The series follows the lives of the wealthy and carefree Bertie Wooster (played by Hugh Laurie) and his highly intelligent, dependable and ever-resourceful valet, Jeeves (played by Stephen Fry).

Bertie Wooster is a kind-hearted, but often bumbling and naive young man from an upper-class English family, who constantly finds himself in trouble due to his own foolishness and that of his friends. He spends most of his time enjoying life, attending social events and trying to impress his potential love interests, but his plans always seem to go awry.

Jeeves, on the other hand, is a highly intelligent and resourceful valet who is always one step ahead of Bertie. He uses his wit, charm and intelligence to solve problems and get Bertie out of trouble. Jeeves always seems to have a solution to every problem, and is the epitome of calm and collectedness, even in the most chaotic situations.

The series is set in the eccentric aristocratic world of pre-World War II England, which is full of colorful and quirky characters. The show also features various subplots, such as Bertie's attempts to avoid marriage, his various love interests, and the many dilemmas he finds himself in due to his own foolishness.

The show's humor is centered around the contrast between Bertie's carelessness and Jeeves' efficiency, as Jeeves tries to keep Bertie out of trouble and maintain the dignity of the family. The comedy is smart, witty and often hilarious, with Fry and Laurie delivering impeccable performances.

The show is an excellent adaptation of Wodehouse's stories, with attention to detail and style of the time period. The sets and costumes are top-notch, and the show's soundtrack, which is a mix of jazz and classical music, adds to the ambiance of the series.

Overall, Jeeves and Wooster is a highly entertaining and humorous series that is a must-watch for fans of British comedy and classic literature. The show's excellent cast, witty writing, and intelligent humor make it a true gem of British television.
