* HilariousInHindsight: It's now even funnier to see so much slapstick nonsense happening at ''Series/DowntonAbbey''.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Jeeves can become quite sinister when you look at him a certain way. He manipulates Bertie to be dependent on him and passive-aggressively forces him to live in a way that keeps Jeeves employed -- although in the end, he always reveals to Bertie what he's done, and not only does Bertie not mind, he's happier hanging out with Jeeves than with any other character.

** In the TV series the ValuesDissonance of the minstrel show is {{Lampshaded}}: Jeeves comments on the supposed origins of blackface minstrels, saying that its being based on plantation slaves [[HappinessInSlavery singing songs about their happy lives]] to be "[[PoliticallyCorrectHistory an unlikely contingency, one surmises, bearing in mind their situation.]]"

* HoYay: To the point that the [[HoYay/PGWodehouse Ho Yay section for Wodehouse's works]] could as well have been called the Jeeves & Wooster-section (with a sideorder of Psmith).

** In the show, despite their official HeterosexualLifePartners status, Bertie and Jeeves both seem almost ''suspiciously'' determined to make sure Bertie never ends up with whatever woman he's gotten himself engaged to. Early in the show's run Jeeves will explain that he thinks the fiancée is a "bad match" but as the plot kept coming up it was taken for granted that Bertie was simply ''never'' to marry if he and Jeeves can find him a way out of it.

* FandomBerserkButton: '''Jeeves is not a butler'''. He is a ''valet'' (or a gentleman's gentleman). There is a difference. Woe betide you if a fan hears you refer to him as such...or, worse, as a ''chauffeur''. And in British English, the t in valet is not silent - so VA-llut, not valéy. (That said, if the call comes, Jeeves can "butle with the best of them.")

** Although now that we're clear on that subject,
if the call comes, need for a butler ''does'' arise, Jeeves can "butle "buttle with the best of them.")
