The A.V. Club recently had a Gateways to Geekery post about P.G. Wodehouse.

The poster, Vadim Rizov, notes:
But the whole environment—linguistically and socially—is far from any modern analogues: a sexless, genteel place where the greatest danger the mostly moneyed characters face is getting married to the wrong person. (Or, in the case of the Jeeves-Wooster series, getting married at all.) Wodehouse’s characters were anachronisms from the moment he began writing them. “His picture of English society had been formed before 1914,” George Orwell noted. “Bertie Wooster, if he ever existed, was killed round about 1915.”

That Orwell quote is from his In Defence of P.G. Wodehouse.

Stephen Fry wrote about playing Jeeves and the Wodehouse universe.

As for visuals, [livejournal.com profile] indeedsir has some screencaps of various episodes.
