Which version? UK or US versions?
I'm afraid I'm hooked on shows from the UK. Everything from Are You Being Served, Keeping Up Appearances, The Avengers, The Prisoner, Poirot, Agatha Christie.... the list is endless. Even enjoy the British Baking Show series.
Presently going through Midsomer Murders on BritBox for about the 4th time.
To be honest, I watch very little US TV. Most of US TV that I watch is sports, with a splash of news here and there.
I`ve actually seen Mrs Brown twice on stage, the first time was so funny, but sadly the second time pretty much of the same stuff. Most of the cast are related, his wife, daughter and sons are in the show.When it comes to comedy, I have to point out Mrs. Brown's Boys. Brendan O'Carroll is outrageous! My wife has a friend we call Winnie when she's not around. So many similarities that we have a rough time not making a mistake and calling her that.
Hoping for another Christmas special this year.
Some shows are like that. They start out like they're going to draw you in, then they kind of fizzle. I've seen quite a few of those that followed that pattern. But i do really enjoy the idea that we can binge watch seasons of shows we really enjoy. It's gotten to the point that we don't even watch normal prime time TV any longer. If there's a show we like, we binge the entire season over a period of a few days, and move on to the next one.By the end of the second season I was so over it. I watched the first 3rd season episode to see what direction it was going and hung it up.
if you cobble together a decent script, i guarantee someone in hollywood will buy it.What I found satisfying was watching the first half season or so of shows that were reruns when I was young. The first I dream of Jeanie or Green Acres where I never seemed to see the pilots. First season of Beverly Hillbillies I've seen several times. The first half season of Green Acres could be respliced into a 3 hour movie.
What I tried to imply was it seems the first season is a serial and plays like a movie split into a half dozen or so parts. Later seasons turned into the stand alone episodes that dominate most shows since.if you cobble together a decent script, i guarantee someone in hollywood will buy it.
I think this happens more often than people realize. Often, the writers are geared into creating one continuous drama or comedy skit, with very little sub-plot. Kind of a mini-series. Then, the unexpected happens, and they are offered renewal, when they thought it was a one and done season of the show.What I tried to imply was it seems the first season is a serial and plays like a movie split into a half dozen or so parts.
