    I meant if shoppers go out and purchase the item rather than having it delivered then you burn more calories.

    I would only be keen to watch it if they can emulate the late 70s, just like the series Life on Mars, aired in 2006.

    Re: Black friday

    Bought a phone for my wife at 129 three weeks ago. I saw it advertised yesterday at a Black Friday price of 169.
    So much for Black Friday.
    Never purchased on that date and never will.

    Re: RIP Freddie Jones

    There was a series in 1976 which I recall watching called The Ghosts of Motley Hall.
    Freddie Jones starred in the series.

    I first came across the book when I was doing O-level English. I read the book again 5 years ago. Both book and film are excellent.

    Re: Starsky and Hutch or the Professionals ?

    Oh please, Starsky and Hutch was funky and watchable. As for Gordon Jackson, he'd always be drinking that malt Scotch Whisky. I need to taste that drink to find out what he saw in it

    Re: Door To Door Sales

    In the early 70s I knew of a man (a distant relative of mine) who use to sell material/clothing in a suitcase.
    Soon after he opened a string of shops and became a millionaire.

    Re: Only Fools And Horses.

    The best episode must be 'A Touch of Glass.'
    They visit a stately home to clean some chandeliers.
    If I can recall there was even a documentary about the episode.

    Re: Doctor sleep

    Last year I read The a shining again prior to reading Dr Sleep. The book is no way close to the brilliance of The Shining. I just hope that the film lives up to the original film.

    Re: Let's Carry On.

    Not sure. But it is the scene where she pushes him onto the bed and as she falls on top of him his head strikes her nose, at which point she grins. It was a mistake but was not edited out.
