Sunday Cinema – “dinnerladies”

Yes, the “d” is lowercase on purpose. The creator of the show decided that since the show is about working-class ladies in a canteen, they shouldn’t be referred to with a capital “D”. Taking place in a canteen (cafeteria) at a fictional factory in England. Bren (played by creator Victoria Woods), Tony the manager, Dolly, & the rest of the cast deal with their personal lives while slinging food to the workers. Filled with British slang & references that American audiences may miss, it’s still a hilarious look at the working class in England (of which we are very similar to here in the states).

Someone posted both seasons online for all to see, here is the first episode “Monday”….

Sunday Cinema – “Blackadder: Back & Forth”

“Blackadder” is an anthology series that follows the exploits of Edmund Blackadder through various points in British history. Starring Rowan Atkinson as Blackadder & Tony Robinson as his servant Baldrick, early in the series Edmund is a dim-witted moron while his servant is more intelligent. As the series progressed, Blackadder became more clever & cunning while his servant became more moronic.

The series ended poorly according to fans, so the writers came up with a “special” that would better satisfy them. In this finale, Blackadder creates a “time machine” in order to con his friends. What he doesn’t realize is that he actually created a time machine and finds himself & Baldrick in the cretaceous period. With no idea what time period they are traveling to, the pair upset the timeline of significant historical events and must correct them.

Many are familiar with Atkinson’s work as “Mr. Bean”, few are familiar with this clever work.

Someone posted the finale online so you can see the brilliance that is Blackadder…

The “Coronavirus Recession” as it’s being called is much worse in comparison to the “Great Recession” of 2008-2009. 8 million jobs were lost during the entire “Great Recession”, 20 million jobs were lost in April 2020 alone.

Sunday Cinema – “‘Allo ‘Allo!”

Taking place in occupied France during World War II, local cafe owner Rene deals with his nagging wife, the French resistance, the Nazi party, the Gestapo, hidden British airmen, & his many mistresses. Not only utilizing dry British humor, the sitcom also utilizes physical slapstick comedy & sexual innuendo as well.

Lasting a whopping 10 years on the air, it was a successful British sitcom that couldn’t be duplicated.

Someone posted the first episode online, be sure to check out “The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies”…
