I have a new reason to love my local library (sorry about the 2 library posts in a row thing but lately I'm lovin' my library): They have British TV series! I can't believe that I didn't know this (or that my mother who works at said library never told me). The news came about when my dad after returning from a visit to Boston mentioned that he had been watching a British series and an Irish series and that we might get those from the library (he had already checked to see if the local one had them) for some family fun. My immediate question was: "Do they have the Vicar of Dibley?" My mother didn't know but said they have lots of fun British stuff that no one knows about. Well I finally got around to checking the library catalogue and she is right they do have lots of fun stuff! I still can't believe I didn't know this and that no one told me.
They have: The Vicar of Dibley; As Time Goes By; Doctor Who (the new one with David Tennant); Monarch of the Glen; and Father Ted. All are favorites of mine. They sadly don't yet have My Family or My Hero but I have hope that the brilliant person who purchased the above series will no doubt be getting to these. I'm sure I'm forgetting some other great British Series. Any reminders from the audience would be appreciated.
For a little bit of fun, here a two clips from The Vicar of Dibley. The first is an end of show joke (they do one for each episode). Here you will get a bit of an introduction to Alice (my favorite character)--she's the one who doesn't get it. The second is a short piece done for charity.
