Allo! Allo!

Yesterday, on a the Canadian Vision cable channel, they started broadcasting an old British TV show titled “Allo! Allo!“. I know, it’s old, dated, and not up to modern production values, but it is absolutely hilarious.

I watched the very first episode (through the magic of PVRs) and still had a very good time. I always like that, although everyone speaks the Queen’s English (albeit with strange accents), they still don’t understand each other as they are supposed to be speaking French, German, or English.

For some reason, I find I need good comedy these days…and the current sitcoms do not seem to measure up to the classics (now where did I put the Faulty Towers tapes…).

I want one of these…

OK. I’ll admit I’m a big Dr. Who fan*. That’s why I think I need this for my computer. It would certainly look better than the one I currently have and the sound would be neat!


*   Even though we get the new episodes in Canada two years after they are broadcasts in the UK – if we’re lucky – and don’t get me started on Torchwood…
