Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry return as the scatterbrained aristocrat and his brainy butler in the second season of "Jeeves and Wooster." The series based on P.G. Wodehouse's classic novels is almost as funny as the books, with the goofy characters and tangled storylines... which are always untangled by Jeeves.
Hugh Laurie, who is now winning raves in the TV show "House," is wonderfully manic as Bertie, using his expressive face and gangly body like a less demented John Cleese. And Stephen Fry embodies the catlike grace and intelligence that Wodehouse always wrote Jeeves as having. The impeccable hair and ever-present suit don't hurt.
"Jeeves and Wooster" only got stronger in its second season, full of disgraced newt-fanciers, angry Nazis, and stolen helmets. I'm sure P.G. Wodehouse would have been quite proud.
