Re: Fans of British television shows...

No probs

I'm currently watching dinnerladies, with Victoria Wood in it. It's really funny, especially as I haven't watched them for about four years

Re: Fans of British television shows...

I just re-watched the entire Blackpool series with David Morrissey and David Tennant.
Has anyone else seen it? - it is very unique and so funny.

I've seen most of it. It's definitely unique

I am not a big Victoria Wood fan, but I do prefer Acorn Antiques to Dinner ladies. I think Julie Walters is great in this.

Interesting idea for a story though, Lunatic.

As for the shows, I haven't watched any of those... I'll have to catch them sometime .
Here's the link to the Dr. Who related HP story.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

Yes- I bought it the other day. If you do decide to buy it though, be careful. I don't know about anybody else's copy, but my series two, discs one and two have the wrong content on it- disc 2 is really disc one, and disc one is really disc 2

Bubble is right, I do love it. That series was so cheesy and funny and sexy and lovely... You make me want to go watch it again. Thank you very much for bringing it up! Ooh, forgot to mention, shocker killer... didn't expect it to be him. I will say no more.

I just started watching Life On Mars today... I. LOVE. IT. John Simm is so awesome.

Why is it that the Brits own television? I have not watched one decent American TV show. Not one.

Yes it was a quite surprising ending! did you see the one off squeal Viva Blackpool? Not the best, however David Morrissey was again, excellent in it.

Life on Mars is wonderful. I didn't watch it when it was on - but when I bought the box set, I began to watch 4-5 episodes a night, and then went out and bought the second box set straight away. John Simms and Philip Glenister are really great together. The whole program is genius.
I am unable to watch Ashes to Ashes, it is lacking in so many ways, but most of all it does not have the charisma of the mother series.

Awesome. Woah that's weird ... talk about having things mixed up there .

And I have some good news... I finally was able to see the 'As Time Goes By' reunion on PBS!! It was SO worth the wait... everyone did an awesome job in terms of getting back into character. It was a class act all the way... and really funny .

Spoiler: show
I can't remember the sisters names, but the one who has brown hair... is pregnant..., Lionel's dad line dances (you don't actually don't see anything, but it's still funny), and his girlfriend rides a motorcycle and is friends with some Hell's Angels...and I have to watch it again to catch the rest of the plot. All I can say is that it's really, really good . I haven't laughed that much in awhile .


I put what I remember from the special in spoiler tags for those who haven't seen it yet .

No, I haven't. I had heard that they had done a sequel, but had also heard that it was terrible, so I wasn't planning on watching it.

Ashes to Ashes is a spin off of Life on Mars? I've heard of the show before, haven't watched it, but didn't know that it was a spin off. Probably should have guessed it, though, due to the fact that they're both songs from David Bowie.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

I never really got into Ashes to Ashes, but I'll have to give it a try- I didn't actually become a fan of Life on Mars until after the second series came out on DVD, so I might still get into it.

Just to be warned Keeley Hawes is no John Simm. And IMO the seventies was a much cooler setting than the eighties.
I also prefer the harder, chauvinistic Gene Hunt.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

Ashes fails from the get-go by having the same bunch of cops working together in a different city eight years after the original. If you are going to use a big device like time travel the more reality based details need to be credible.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

That makes sense, although I didn't realise that it was a different city. Perhaps they should have kept it in Manchester?

Re: Fans of British television shows...

I just watched some of Russell Brands Ponderland. I forgot how funny it was.
I wish he was still on the radio.....Hopefully he will be back to do a third series of PL on channel four.
