We’re finished watching Last Tango in Halifax now, and I can’t recall when I ever watched anything so enjoyable on TV! I loved every minute of it. Now we’ll just have to wait for Netflix, to find it in the goodness of their hearts, to add the two, following seasons. Can’t believe we missed this, when it was aired on PBS on regular TV, but you just can’t keep track of everything.
As usual, when watching British TV-series or movies, one thing that strikes us is the tea … “the art of drinking tea”. I’d love to adopt the habit of drinking it as the British, but I think I’m too old to be converted from coffee, even though I love a good cup of tea.
In this show, and all the others too, for that matter … it didn’t matter what the situation was … could even be a death in the family, where people were totally distraught … the solution to that would be: “Do you want tea? … Shall I put the kettle on?” 🙂 I find that so cute! “A good cup of tea will make you feel better”.
I do like a good cup of tea myself, and I always have it at home … regular ‘breakfast tea’, nothing else. The reason why I haven’t been able to make the switch is [perhaps psychological] I don’t think I get the same kick out of it in the morning, as with my black coffee.
When I was there, back in 1983, I took a liking to a certain brand: PGs [I remember that after all these years!], and have been able to find that here in Saint John! In the City Market there are many, little stores, that carry different and forgein brands you don’t see in the ordinary grocery stores.
