Oh.... Ms Gravy Queen reminded me of one of my favorite programs (or is it favourite programmes?): TOP GEAR!

I love that show. Not the lame American knock-off, but the British original with Jeremy Clarkson and his cronies. Unfortunately, our cable company switched things around and now I don't know where BBC America landed.

ME TV (Memorable Entertainment) - Mary Tyler Moore, Bob Newhart, Dick Van Dyke Show (& Cheers, when it was on)
:sigh: I wish we could get ME TV. It's only available for folks who live in town and get cable. We have to go through DTV.

I love MeTV! We don't have cable or satellite. We bought an amplifier at WalMart and it brings in the local channels and MeTV.

Hmm. Will have to check into an antenna. I think ME is only available through the in-town services, but I will definitely look into it! Thanks Barbara!

:( Awww. I hope you can get ME TV. Here's one of the funniest MTM episodes.

From Chuckles the clown's funeral.

"A little song. A little dance. A little seltzer down your pants."

GQ, I'm glad you mentioned "Call the Midwife"...I really enjoyed the first season and can't wait to get the next.
Call the Midwife : PBS

That's got to be the #1 most entertaining automobile show that I've ever seen, I have watched a ton of episodes.
