So is anyone planning on watching the As time goes by? reunion show coming up on the 13th of this month?

I am... just for the heck of it. I wonder if it'll show what the characters have been up to -- like in a mini episode kind of way... or if it'll be set up more like the M*A*S*H 30th reunion was... in a rememberance sort of way...

It was an interesting time to grow up in. Fantastic music! And the clothes!
I tell my kids how there were no Computers or Mobile phones or Microwaves or CDs and DVDs when I was young and they are so sorry for me.

My mother loves As Time Goes By, so I hope we get that program, soon.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

I love Hyacinth and her antics on "Keeping Up Appearances."

I also love BBC America: Dr. Who, Torchwood, Graham Norton, Top Gear (especially their "challenges"), Being Human.

Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes (my other favorite series). There used to be a series on called "To the Manor Born." It was hilarious. Of course, all of the Monty Pythons.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

Has anyone else seen the British Cold Case type show called, I think, Wake the Dead?

It hasn't been on TV, here in Australia, for a while but I did really like it.

Nope I haven't. Is it out on dvd in any way?

And I didn't get a chance to see the As Time Goes By special... I missed it -- and there was nothing but stuff that I didn't want to see on... just some guys fixing up a old house... and some other show...

Channel 9 had the network rights to Waking the Dead in Australia but as they did with Sopranos and The West Wing they moved it around and inexplicably dropped it for short periods until people lost interest.

Of all the networks 9 shouldn't be allowed anywhere near quality series.

Yes, I used to watch it every week when it first came on. They started with the first series and I looked forward to seeing all of the episodes, then they skipped a few years, then it was gone.
I hope it comes out on DVD. I havn't seen it as a boxed set, yet.

Me too -- she's so rediculous at times .

I've seen parts of that series (Sherlock Holmes). It's pretty well done -- and he did an incredible job as Sherlock .

Re: Fans of British television shows...

BtW Since this is a Potter thread I recently wrote a next gen story which included a Columbian Mammoth kept at Hogwarts since the the Department of Mysteries time experiment went wrong (Charlie Weasley was in charge of the cover up) and another where in Muggle studies, we learn that the Dr. Who episodes "Blink" and "Silence in the Libary" are actually public service anouncements for Muggles about Luna's newly discovered creatures and what to do should you encounter them.

As for my shows, Being Human, Dr Who, Torchwood, and the first two seasons of Primeval (The third was dumbed down), Last Resturaunt Standing.

All the Best,

Lunatic

Yep this is a Potter forum. But this thread isn't related to HP, not every part of the forums themselves has to do with it .

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 .

It's a bit adult, and I'm not sure how well it'd play to a non-UK audience, but I really like Shameless

Not me. One look at that smirk and I feel like glassing him. Extras was saved by the supporting cast.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

I LOVE SKINS! It's my favourite show(with Degrassi). I just love the charaters. They're so... lovable.But I have to watch it online though, because the channel in Canada that airs Skins, I don't have it. but it's fine. I'm happy my mom finds me mature enough to watch it.
I also watch EastEnders sometimes. I do get lost occasionaly because I dn't watch episode my episode. But I really do like it.

Apparently Gavin & Stacey is returning this fall and I am looking forward to it. The Inbetweeners has been picked up for another season. It's going to be great.
