    "The Hollow Crown" - Starts tonight on BBC HD 9pm

    Just curious if this has been picked up in the USA? (Wondering if it might be just a little bit too British?)

    "Too British"? Nah. Plenty of Anglophiles here.

    I happen to have a thing for fish and chips.

    And Kate Beckinsale.

    TV can never be too British Smiley
    I watch Countryfile every week and I've never been to England.
    I've also watched every episode of Time Team, All 7 seasons of Coast and everything Ray Mears has ever done.
    I guess I like the more educational stuff.

    Ah but you're Canadian. The queen still owns you.

    Just discovered that they (the 4 plays)  will also be screened later in the year in the US on PBS – the Hollow Crown  being co-produced with help from the big bucks of NBC Universal.

    Not much is too British for me. Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, Mr. Bean, Top Gear, Doctor Who, etc. but I will admit that a lot of my friends just "don't get it".

    Not only great TV, but also John H Conway (is this is the right thread...) 

    Also, whenever I see a math book published by Cambridge University Press, I buy

    @cbae:I ordered fish and chips in a restaurant in LAX airport last week.

     

    I got fish and Crisps.

    Hot too.

    Really enjoyed first half of Henry IV last night - Simon Russell Beale excellent as Falstaff - interviewed by Andrew Marr this morning (Check it out on iPlayer, around 9:20am GMT). 

    So proud to have been a part of these films (even if it was just my out of focus legs & floppy hat!)

    @Ian2: Must admit I wouldn't call myself a massive Shakespeare fan, but I've really enjoyed these so far! Well worth watching. Thanks for bringing them to our attention Smiley

    What a mighty performance from Tom Hiddleston tonight - Had a lump in my throat during the 'band of brothers' speech from Henry V.

    Spotted myself in the background about 2 minutes in (I was an extra for a day as 'a noble mourner' at Gloucester Cathedral).
