For my fifth installment of Foreign Film I have a British TV show for you- I love British tele 🙂 so I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of these. Last weekend hubby and I watched “People Like Us” a mock documentary. In true BBC fashion the humour is dry and sarcastic. This is an adult show more because it would bore kids then there is anything inappropriate in the show. The whole series is on two disks- BBC is all about leaving viewers wanting more. Hubby and I laughed a lot, and enjoying pointing at the TV and saying- hey that’s so and so from… this show has a lot of great people in it, such as Bill Nighy, David Tennant, Jessica Hynes, and Sarah Alexander.
I couldn’t find a trailer, but here is the IMDB page http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0214362/
We might have to check this out. We watched Secret Diaries of a Call Girl until the series ended. I miss our British fix.
I haven’t seen Secret Diaries of a Call Girl yet- but someone else recommended it to me. Hubby and I love British shows, we watch a lot and I have to be careful not to use British slang when I’m writing and talking !
Alicia – thanks for the heads up — I LOVE British comedy and British mysteries — glad to hear about another. I just ordered the Last Detective with Peter Davison…to join Morse, Dalgliesh, Insp. Lewis, Miss Marple and all the others. Nice post.
Yay! Have you watch Inspector Frost? Or Touching Evil? Those are two of my favs. Just finished Miss. Marple season 2 so much fun!
I love the BBC, even the news on occasion.
Thanks- I tend to shy away from the news- but if I watch it I check out BBC- the view is so different so much more we are a part of the world then American news.
