Only Ep 1 - much better than something with Stephan Mangan which we gave
up on. Hope to see Ep 2 etc this week.

watch them, but not sure I want to see more.

I think we must be writing about something different. I was writing
about Hold the Sunset, only one series so far though yes, I did mean the
rest of the episodes.

It was me. Bliss. He was a travel writer and had two families in
Bristol - a week each. I am not sure we even managed a complete
episode. Sky I think.

Ah I hadn't heard of that. I've been watching a couple of Young
Sheldon just now and liked those. I missed Big Bang Theory initially
and we've been watching those so wanted to see him as a child. I love
BBT. Since I played D&D monthly for 21 years as an adult I enjoy the
games bits and have friends a little bit like those.

Only the first one :)
There are lots of comedies with older and well-established actors that
I tune in to hopefully but am disappointed. I watched Vicious for one
episode and tried a few of Transparent and the one with Jane Fonda and
Lily Tomlin and Martin Sheen and Umbrella. Most of them seem to go
for hackneyed jokes. The Jo Bland one too, a bit depressing.

I listened to John Cleese read his memoir recently. He made some
interesting points about the nature of comedy and the 'football crowd'
effect of the audience. Like me, he had grown up wondering why shows like
'Take it from here' had been so popular when they were not funny at all.
Filled with catch phrases and hackneyed jokes, which are apparently
crowd-pleasers - presumably through the recognition factor - but nothing
original and actually funny.

It's a lazy way of writing but in a large part he blamed the audience.
It is rather like the die-hard fans who go to rock concerts but only really
want to hear the familiar golden oldies, not the new stuff.

OTOH, I'm no fan of the comedy of embarrassment - I found Harry Worth
excruciating as a child - although Fawlty Towers (which he barely mentions)
did it far better than most.

I was never convinced Fawlty Towers wasn’t inspired tse by my parents. They
ran a small hotel
And there were elements.

No but not a million miles away. I doubt they were the primary source but
as I say, there were elements: e.g two German teachers on some sort of
exchange visit. Father walks into dining room and sees a jam sandwich
travelling along road in near distance. “There goes the ge*s*a*o he
exclaimed”. Exited hurriedly covered in confusion and not a little
embarrassment.

I guess you're right. :o) I think my fondest memory of her
performances, among many very fond ones, is of Mrs Bennet in the classic
BBC Ehle/Firth production. She was *wonderful*.

She may almost be enough to persuade me to listen to an episode...but
probably not.

I have just staged my Jane Austin show down here* at Pencarrow House. It
includes a dramatised reading from Ch 1 of P&P. I am convinced the lady
who played Mrs B was channelling Steadman. Or, more likely, watched her
performance and copied it! But it was v,g., I admit.

Hold the Sunset may have legs but atm the characters are a bit arch and
lack a chemistry between them. The script is good in parts but rather
immature.

Some time has elapsed and I still don’t understand what I said that was so
riskeeey?

I get the poor punctuation but not a typo. Home earlier and neighbours
brought around a bottle of the best Cornish bubbly from the organisers.
Seem to have pleased folk. Of course it was the cast really but I am not
sharing Camel Valley fizz. Not drinking it either until fully recovered
from the emergency trip to horsepiddle. Only now do I realise how serious
it was!

Ahem! ISTR that by long-standing Umratic tradition, it is assumed that
what an Umrat writes is what the Umrat meant even if it looks like an error.

Honestly, standards are not what they used to be in these parts. I've
been spending too much time away.

Yebbut when said honourable umrat asks what everyone is on about, one
has to assume that any "humour" was unintentional.

I have just staged my Jane Austin show down here*
Shudder.
Oh bottoms, I can forgive and even find amusement in most of your typos,
but not that one!!
Off to the naughty step with you.
Her jalopy was on show to the public?
Aaaaah! I think I geddit.
But not the jalopy?
Perhaps you run a new car then?
As opposed to what?
Some time has elapsed and I still don’t understand what I said that was so
riskeeey?
It's Austen, not Austin :)
Oh you’ve told her now:-)

The last time that we heard from her was on the 22nd March 2017.
We also heard from her on the 19th and 24th February. These were the
only times that we heard from her last year, and they could well have
been within a single recording session.

The previous year she was much more prevalent and we heard from her at
least one in 16 weeks of the year, between February and October, though
her daughter Anna was around a little more often, appearing in 22 weeks.

As far as we know, Carol is still around. I think Jill would mention it
if her cottage was empty.

In the 'olwen' thread up above, somebody asked the same question, so I
though I'd draw attention to the answer that I gave three weeks or so
ago. She had not appeared in the mean time, so it is still correct.

I wonder if the changes of editor affect the stories? We know these work
on short, medium & long term time frames. We know Soc arrived excited by
his coercive control story the ptb had bought into. There must be
questions along the lines of: what would you bring for a new editor.

Given that stuff has to go to accommodate the new plans, I guess all sorts
of events and inhabitants are shelved to make the space. I wonder if Carol
Tregorran would have been so quiet. I wonder if FAL and Justin would have
married? Back along I wonder about the Toby, Pip, Brighton stuff.

Any other ideas, reflections etc?

Yes, I think so. I seem to remember major shifts in story, when SOC
arrived and, again, as soon as he left. At the moment, a month or two
into the new broom's regime, it has a feel that things are shifting. I
assume that at least some of Nic's death, Alistair and Shula's
separation, the pollution and resultant upheavals at Home Farm were
already planned but, probably not all of them at once.

At the moment the new broom is awaiting both head and handle. We are
once again being steered by Alison Hindell who last time around closed
down most of SoC's eccentricities as quickly as she could but otherwise
we drifted a bit.

This time she has had to deal with the fallout from the murder of Nic
and the K-J story that Nic of all people hit Matt. An uphill task if
there ever was one. The Shula breakup has obviously been planned for
years and is being used to fill in the gaps.

I actually feel sorry for AH in constantly having to sort the mess
caused by poor editors. I can only hope that the new boy can work
wonders once he arrives. I am hoping Will might have dreamt that Nic
had died and that when he wakes we will find that Shula and Snappy had
such a good break in Iceland that they are all loved up again.
