I Love "Keeping Up Appearances"

I would be very pleased if you would accept my invitation to one my candle light suppers 202 People

    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.

    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".

    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...

    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...

    Absolutely!

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

    O Hyacinth, Is It Really You?!

    I can't believe this group actually exists! I am so psyched, so happy, so inappropriately attired for a candlelight supper, and hoping against hope to be invited along for some riparian entertainment!! The first time I ever saw Hyacinth and her crew, they had replaced "...

    This Has to Be the Funniest Show Ever!

    A few years ago,  my bother asked me if I had ever seen Keeping Up Appearances in BBC America or PBS. I Told him I didn't and he said I need to. So, I searched the TV and saw when it was coming on.  The first show was so hysterical, I ws instntly hooked! Patricia...

    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.

    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 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...

    I love this show!! :) Hyacinth Bucket

    (pronounced Bouquet) is the funniest lady ever and although I love her antics, I would not want to live next or near her. I feel sorry for anyone on her street or is invited to her Candlelight Suppers. Hat's off to Richard because that man is the strongest man I know. Poor thing...

    The Full Bouquet

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
