Maybe I will get into the mysteries more; so far, it has just been one Miss Marple series and Rosemary and Thyme. Nice to find the quirky comedy movies, i.e. Calendar Girls, The Full Monty, that one about growing pot in a village greenhouse.

So----- we need a separate Anglophile video thread?
Isn't that the truth? :0)

I forgot Monarch of the Glen. I've seen it twice and enjoyed every minute of it.
I totally agree with you, the earlier episodes were much better.
I think I started losing interest after the old lord died. I laughed so hard when he was trying to train the dog "useless" and then I cried when he died.
It was hard to take that within a few minutes on the same episode.
I have learned one thing from our ancient Greek ancestors- PAN METRON ARISTON- "Nothing In Excess"
