    Absolutely!

    Hyacinth is my all time favourite. For some reason the show reminds me of SPACED, that show is amusing as well.

    Oh, Dear Sweet (?) Hyacinth

    Such a perfect name for her, not the most lovely of flowers, kind of obnoxious,  but beautiful at the same time.   I SO know so many people like her, that try SO hard to be perfect and to keep a great facade.... but fail miserably.   And the number of...

    The Episode Where They Go On The Cruise

    Keeping Up Appearances is one of my "do not miss" shows. I found it after it was syndicated and it comes on the public tv station here. It was off for awhile, but I found the entire series on dvd 2 years ago. Now it is back on tv, probably by popular demand. One of my favorite...

    Onslow

    Seeing this group made me laugh.  I'm not sure where I clicked to get here, who would have thought there would be a group like this.  This show is one of my all time favorites, I've seen all the eps.  Onslow has to be my favorite charactor.  I haven't read many stories here...

    She Knew Richard Forgot Their Anniversary....

    That's why she set the alarm to their wedding date. I would have done the same.BTW, I made a fresh cream cake for the Fourth of July with creme fraische topping and blueberries.Fabulous.Maybe I'll go as Hyacinth for next Halloween with a NY/buppie twist.

    O Hyacinth, Is It Really You?!

    Hyacinth Bucket Sings I love any episode

    where Hyacinth sings. It's funny how on the show she sings off key but in real life has a beautiful voice. My favorite is when she sings: Rose of England thou shall fade not here Proud and bright from growing year to year While hand and heart endure to cherish thy prime Thou...

    The Lady of the House

    She wrote a book "Hyacinth Bucket's Book of Etiquette for the Socially Less Fortunate". I would love to read it! It must be hilarious.

    Hyacinth Brings Tears to My Eyes

    Snooty Hyacinth and the whole crazy bunch make me fall down laughing.  Although it is British comedy, which I love, it reflects the behavior of many self-invovled Americans.  Perhaps it should have been mandatory viewing when certain people signed the contracts on...

    My Guilty Pleasure!

    I think it might be a bit weird for a teenager to like Keeping Up Appearances because most of us like shows like Skins and Misfits and stuff like that. Shows with sex, violence and drama! And I do like those shows, I like them a lot, but there's something about Keeping Up...

    Just One Word - Onslow

    The long-suffering BIL. He puts up with a lot of sh*t, along with Richard, and all he wants to do is have a beer, for god's sake. Not only that but he has to put up with Rose and Daddy. This coming Friday night, down at the Pub, my first pint is dedicated to you, Onslow. :)P.S...

    I also love this show. The best part for me is Onslow and Daisy (is that her name? I know that the sisters are all named after flowers). I also love "Waiting For God".
