OK, I confess... I'm a hopeless Anglophile, hopelessly addicted to BritComs. It all started with Good Neighbors, better known in the UK as The Good Life. Although I can't find anyone who is airing Good Neighbors these days, it remains my all-time favourite BritCom. I was pleasantly surprised, when I caughtRichard Briers as Hector MacDonald the first episode of Monarch of the Glen on BBCAmerica, to see none other than Richard Briers (who played Tom Good) in a major role. You haven't seen Monarch of the Glen yet? What are you waiting for? I would subscribe to satellite tv for this show alone!

Once I was totally hooked on Good Neighbors, it was only natural that To the Manor Born would risePeter Bowles and Penelope Keith as Richard Devere and Audrey fforbes-Hamilton immediately to the #2 spot in my top ten list. Starring Good Neighbors' own extremely talented Penelope Keith and the dashing Peter Bowles. After that, it became a matter of following Penelope, Felicity (Kendall of Good Neighbors), RIchard, and Peter from show to show to show.

And, of course, who could possibly resist the lanky, boyishly charming Hugh Laurie? He and Stephen Fry were captivating as Jeeves and Wooster. More recently, I enjoyed Hugh's all-too-brief appearances in the remake of The Borrowers, starring John Goodman. and am hoping to get Gosford Park for Christmas. *hint, hint, family!* 8-]

THE ADDICTION GROWS

Well, it was no time at all before BritComs just weren't enough. I had to have more. I found myself thinking in a British accent. More and more 'foreign' words were slipping into my vocabulary. Americans tend to look at you funny when you're gobsmacked. (I tell them it's my Scot-Irish heritage.)

Then I rediscovered an old favorite... Miss Marple! Naturally, that led to Hercule Poirot and that to A Touch of Frost. On a business trip with my family, I found myself at loose ends in a hotel room. As fate would have it, their cable system carried BBCAmerica.

Shortly thereafter, we moved to a rural area that did not have cable service. The first thing I did was install a satellite dish and sign up for BBCA! And that was all she wrote!
