Why not tell why you are so Happy?
Does a Bond Girl have anything to do with it?

Did you finally secure an unfaded print of Grizzly Adams then Osi?

Probably a certain guy in a trailer has been found burned to death
cooking a chicken dinner.........and no signs of foul play.

Found a Grizzly Adams unfaded print? I WISH!

Nope, that's the theme song to a British Comedy series, I think it's called, "Two Old Farts' or something like that. I just couldn't get it out of my head! It's a fun little ditty!

Weren't those lyrics, I am H A P P Y, from the theme song to Only When I laugh, an ITV sit com set in an NHS hospital starring James Bolam??? Late 1970's?

It sure is, and I'm watching them now on dvd as an antidote to
the olympics,just done "Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads?"
and "Arthur of the Britons".Thank God for boxsets!

One of the best things about Boxsets is if done properly, the episodes are uncut. When you see old shows on TV now they are always trimmed for more commercial time. And oftentimes the edits are poorly done.

One of the things that really annoys me on tv lately Joe,is the very
poor camera work,shakey cam,where you think it was recorded
by a nervous wreck on a trampoline.A case in point was a show
the other night where someone was seated at a desk,and the
cameraman couldn't keep him in frame and the guy hit every
edge of the frame but still he could not centre the shot.Then there
is the short zoom in stages then zooms back to start all over again
I don't know how these "cameramen" hold down a job,pathetic!
That, and this fetish that the tv planners have for squeezing
the end credits into a corner of the screen,telling you about
some programme you weren't going to watch and ruin the end
film score..Like I said,thank God for dvd boxsets.

Plus if they don't put the credits in a small corner, they run them so fast you could't possibly read them. [Big Grin]

Nope, this series stars the fella who played "Richard Bouqet" on "Keeping up Appearances" and another old fellow.

Those box sets can be deceiving though. I have that "The Whole Bean" Mr. Bean box set, but it isn't the whole BEAN!

For instance, there is the episode where Mr. Bean goes to a department store to buy a brand new chair and other household items, and there is a whole gag sequence cut out where an elderly couple is going to buy there chair Mr. Bean wants, the elderly woman is in the chair, and since it is one that has a remote control to either have the chair raise or down (to help you get up), Bean unmercifully tortures the old woman by having it go up and down with her in it. It's quite a funny sequence, and it's not in there dammit!

Sadly, a shaky camera is the norm today. And I hate it as well. And oftentimes the lighting or makeup is lousy. Yes, some boxsets do have trimmed episodes but they shouldn't. And some have altered music scores or titles. I too hate it when they shrink the credits. I want to see them all and listen to the music. And I want to see the original studio logo at the end too!

Hi Osi,the episodes on your Mr Bean boxset are as complete as you're gonna get.They are the complete episodes that were shown in the UK,the episodes you saw in the US had extras added,
because of the running times in the US,your episodes fill the half hour
slot whereas in the UK,We have an advert break midway,that allows for making a cup of tea etc,therefore there would be a shortfall,and the TV stations in the US had permission to ad filler
material.You would have thought it could have been included in the out takes, but no.So the shows you have are the Rowan
Atkinson approved episodes.The only TV station that does give
a full half hour etc is the BBC as there aren't any adverts.
