Zee Germans!


Having woken for an hour or so at 3AM I decided to go back to bed but this was futile because I was awake...so I watched another episode of Upstairs Downstairs on my 'puter. There are no spaceships or car chases because it's 1905 but it really is top stuff and I love it!

Anyhow, this morning's ep' was a cracker. There was a sneaky Jerry in the house and he was not all he seemed to be. He was a spy! Not only that but he was a ...shock horror...homosexual! I didn't think homosexuals were invented until the 1920s but there he was! Anyway, there was a right old caper and Lady Marjorie swooned at the thought of 'having a pervert in our house!'

Marvelously un PC stuff having a crack at the filthy Hun (always good for a giggle); hooray for TV from the 1970s!

I didn't know Erin was partial to a bit of 70's soap opera!

PS. Is your friend Walshy a closet Archers fan?

Hello! No that was the noise of a hand grenade bouncing in and going boom. Did you think it was the dulcet tones of Barwick Green? :)

Walshy is not an Archers fan, though he (and I) do like Jonathan Archer. Bet you a quid you have to Google that to find out who he is!

Yep but no time now!

Oh how, how, um, how? Do you get Upstairs, downstairs on your puta? Is it special magic? Can you do it in Wales?

Hi Liz,

I downloaded a couple of episodes on a bit torrent and watched them on my 'puter. I also have a series on DVD and look in on that too.

I am sure Wales is compatible with top 70s TV drama!
