Many kinds of thoughts coming up

British comedy, then and now

Yesterday evening and this morning I watched the two first episodes of Lost in Austen, which is running in Swedish public service TV (SVT) presently. I think it starts very well, but turns rather silly on and on. Considering the high appreciation that British serials generally enjoy, I can’t so far see that this one is a hit. We’ll see what the two remaining episodes may bring!

How refreshing, for a contrast, to watch once again Jeeves and Wooster of the 90’s, beginning this evening in a commercial channel (Kanal 9). Don’t say that public service are the only ones who care about quality.
