I've ordered them, too. But in a more permanent form.

Oh and The Vicar of Dibley, Good Neighbors...too many comedies to even start on, Fawlty Towers...ah heck, I'll be here all night thinking of more titles.

The Scottish a N/Irish dont think its funny they think its normal.The Welsh....well we have sheep.The history of cross dressing in the UK Theartre is very old, the childrens Christmas Pantomime is a fine example ie Dick in Dick Whittington is always played by a woman(is that an oxymoron)whilst the widow Twankey is played by a man.
I have sat/tv and I once watched the a Maury show where the audience has to guess the sex of scantily clad contestants.I have a problem with this on a number of levels.

I used to get a kick out of Good Neighbors and also To the manor born.

I watched DA tonight. What a good show. Last season was just the set up. Now it is getting deep and good. Can't wait until next Sunday. I just hope this season is more than four shows. I am addicted to Masterpiece Theater.

I watched Pride and Prejudice twice with Colin Firth as Mr. Darby. Then to see him in Mama Mia as a comic gay man singing was hilarious.

We just watched Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush in, "The King's Speech," last night. It was excellent.

Wow, I am so out of the loop on this. I used to love British TV and we get lots of it here in Canada. I haven't had cable in years and don't watch TV at all, since I fried the one with the makeshift antenna.

Seems to me we've enjoyed a few Canadian TV series and/or movies as well, how about some prompts there, since I can't put a name to them. Red Green, of course. He was hot here in the upper U.S. Midwest, but hubby and I first saw him years before the U.S. market found him, on a vacation to Quebec. Loved "advice to older men". Loved one episode where one character makes fun of French-Canadian accents (yes, my dad and his older siblings do speak like that!).

I went to PBS.COM and DA has seven shows this season instead of the four. And!!! they are already working on season three. Also they hinted that all will be right between Mary and Mathew. YEA!!!
