I've only read a few of the original stories, but vastly enjoyed the Jeeves and Wooster TV series with Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie. I rented the whole thing, one disc at a time, through Netflix.  Yes, it's essentially a one-joke story, and maybe it's even more so when adapted for TV, but Fry and Laurie are, as usual, too much fun!  Some viewers complained that Stephen Fry was too young for the part of Jeeves -- he was, I think, 33 when the series began, and is not made up to look older.  IMO, though, Fry is one of the most age-neutral actors around, and he and Hugh Laurie were always perfect together!
