Finally after decades, I own my very own copy of The Goodies on DVD! Found a copy on Ebay for around half the retail price. This was the sitcom that played a defining role for British comedy and was a regular after-school entertainer for me in the 80's. With brilliant plot-lines, wacky jokes and hilarious visual comedy, it's about time we saw this out.
So far I've watched two episodes, and am still mesmerised by the stories in them - no doubt within a few days I'll have seen the rest of the DVD, together with the extras and commentary. Looking forward to seeing the next DVD!
At my work, there have been occasional discussions about getting ourselves a fridge to keep friday arvo beers cool. It's been pretty hard trying to convince people that we should spend the money, and it seemed a lost cause - the beer would be warm.
Fortunately I discovered that we have the worlds largest fridge here...we now hang the beer out the window and it keeps it at a nice chilly 3 degrees or so until beer o'clock rolls around.
It'd be just my luck though if someone on the pavement below was hit by a bag 'o' beer falling three stories.
