    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...

    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...

    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...

    Love It

    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".

    It's Funny, Because It's True!

    My grandmother was exactly like Hyacinth Bucket. And in turn, my mother got the same touch of it... she still worries about what the neighbors think of her! :-o I had it for a short while, as a kid... but when I became a teen, my attitude became, "Screw this! I'm being...

    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.

    Absolutely!

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

    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...

    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...
