What do you watch on tv nowadays ?

Just finished watching Citizen Smith on Forces TV. I don't find it as funny now as I did all those years ago but still enjoyed seeing it again.

I'm not watching these at the moment but may I suggest to the forum , Early Doors(only two series made) Stillgame a Scot comedy series . Plus another from over the border Two Doors Down . E D revolves around customers using a in a pub in or around Greater Manchester, I was disappointed though to the fact ,they only made two series . The two local cops are hilarious . SG is about a couple of pensioners day to day antics yet again it finished after about five series too early by far , I believe they took on the road by the way the pensioners are actually the script writers fantastic series . The third TDD is brilliant in as much the goings on in a Glasgow suburb where neighbours living closely are not necessarily getting on that good turning up uninvited etc , but it's a great laugh . If you haven't seen , I hope you enjoy .

We both really like Looking For Alice on Sunday evenings.
The Guardian slated it but the reviewer is very young. Maybe when they have lived they can understand it better. I can relate to all the experiences the character Alice has to suffer. Every single one. We didn't bury anyone in the garden but I joked at the time we might have to when the deceased assets were frozen, in a foreign country, and we had no money. The reviewer says the big names hold it up but in my opinion it stands on it's own merit.

oo Howard oo marina:grinning:
compo cleggy foggy.the later episodes with out them... is pants
We went where it was filmed by accident. Glossop maybe.? Partner's idea to drive down that's me to drive, from the lakes home not using the motorway. Mistake. Very scenic though. Felt I was in the series and no one about. We saw the lady that runs the café, Ivy, Jane Freeman in a play, here with Patrick Cargill, so ignore Wiki's lack of detail about her. I used to have a client a Miss Simonite, she thought it was odd that I thought it was funny she shared Comp's surname. Yes, I love the subtle wit.
I keep flipping on to the old Allo Allo's. Some bits still make me laugh. Partner doesn't approve at all. But she does like the Granny.
