    Re: Last tango in halifax

    I need to catch up with the current series, I like that some of it was filmed in Stockport, being able to teleport from Skipton in a few seconds.

    Re: RIP Albert Uderzo

    Sad news, I knew he had stopped drawing & writing a few years ago, & passed Asterrix onto some younger artists & writers.

    I've been watching this & enjoying it.

    All the Back In Time shows have been good so far.
  4. Re: TV Progs that had good Series - but then somehow "jumped the shark" as it whe

    A few 1990s Sitcoms ran for too long & the later series were a lot weaker because the writers had run out of ideas. Bread, The Brittas Empire & 2.4 Children are all guilty of this.

    Thanks, I'm happy to help jog people's memories if I can.

    I never knew there was another show with the same name.
  8. Re: Name that show: Children's 80s show about a child befriending an alien

    Aliens In The Family was made in 1987, I can remember when the alien called Bond is looking for a radio & takes interest in a ghetto blaster playing Kim Wilde's version of You Keep Me Hanging On.

  9. Re: The Feelings of not knowing certain Episodes of a TV Prog for years

    Somehow I kept missing the episode of Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em where Frank Spencer keeps annoying his neighbour who is trying to write a script.

    This show was repeated a few times in the 1980s-90s...

    Re: Posh Spice

    I'm surprised she didn't release Midnight Fantasy as a single as it's better than a few songs that were.
