:( :( :( :(
R.I.P. Robert Clary, Corporal LeBeau on Hogan's Heroes
Robert was 96 years old at his passing. A wonderful life :!:

I really loved watching this show.

I have DTV and every Monday I get to record the show and they usually run 6 to 8 shows in a row. I have enjoyed the entire 6 seasons several times since they started to do this. This is one show that made television worth watching.
Another show I am enjoying right now is the Brit comedy "Are you being served?" It is on BritBox TV on prime video. I have been binge watching it for the past week. Regular TV in the US sucks big time so I enjoy being able to watch TV from other countries, like England, Australia, Japan and I find they are much better produced.

Ah Fred, Mrs Slocombe and her pussy. One of the classic comedies. Can you get "Dad's Army" over there? Quintessentially British. I vaguely remember "Hogan's Heroes" but it hasn't been shown here for donkey's years.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

I have not seen "Dad's Army" listed anywhere here. There have been many Brit comedies and shows I have watched such as "Waiting for God", "Faulty Towers" and "Graham Norton Show" also Mysteries Such as "Midsummer Mysteries", "Hercule Poirot".

I really enjoy British Television. :king: :queen:

"Dad's Army" follows a group of ( mostly ) elderly defense volunteers during WW2 and the antics they get up to. It is available on Boob Tube ( what isn't ) or BBC iPlayer if you have access. And you would really enjoy the send up of the inept English.

Sounds like a fun show.
I don't have access to either one of those.I have BritBox and I have not seen it there.

By Boob Tube, I mean YouTube. I looked on there and found episodes.

How many kiddies today even know why the thing is called a "boob tube" because CRTs have been obsolete for years (or at least well concealed)?

Ditto the notion of a "choo-choo" because nobody has seen a running steam train in years (or at least only a tiny number have).

Hi Dennis,
No! Boob Tube has been around since at least the early 50's . It refers to the stupid stuff that was shown on the TV. Back when the TV had a giant glass tube for a picture tube. The TV was referred to as the "BOOB TUBE".
