    While spending a little more time at home, have found myself watching a little more tv and lately been watching British shows like Safe, The Stranger and Broadchurh...all pretty good shows, imo.
    Even signed up for Acorn, a British streaming channel! 
    Can any friends, across the pond, recommend any good shows?

    Thanks, Mates! :028:

    Personally I like Steptoe and Son, Open all hours, Porridge, Fawlty Towers, Keeping up appearances, love thy neieghbour and Men behaving badly. In the current climate, all will soon be deemed to offend someone, somewhere about something, so best get to see them quickly.

    Hahaha Gary, you forgot "It ain't half hot, mum"  with Michael Bates and Windsor Davies: :008: :008:

    I suspect, like you, I've had a bellyful or offended snowflakes !

    Ahh yes, forgot about It aint half hot mum. Great comedy, but sadly it "picked on" people. Not acceptable now you know.

    If you are into crime drama, Cracker is great.

    You should have a look at "Still Game", set in Glasgow Scotland, you probably wont understand half of it but it has me in tears from laughing every time. I will translate for you....  :745:

    Thanks for the replys guys. Don't watch any major network shows (ABC, NBC, CBS) here. All the same BS with different actors! :157:
    Do watch certain series on HBO, Showtime, etc.
    Will check out the shows y'all mentioned....thanks again! :028:
