  • Not Politicaly Correct- Thank Goodness.

    Not on Your Nellie stars Hylda Baker as Nellie Pickersgill, a northern spinster who hates the consumption of alcohol. Her father gets sick and she must move down to London to run the pub for him. It's based on a stage play by Tom Brennand and Roy Bottomley. It's the interaction with the pubs regulars that bring the most to the party. The pub has a great collection of locals including a lazy window cleaner, an Asian bus conductor, and I can't forget the busty barmaids who add a lot of crude and vulgar comedy to the mix. It is one to watch.moreless
  • A great British comedy series.

    This was a pretty good British comedy television series. As is normal with good television shows, this one did not last long enough. This is a show that I would suggest watching if you get the chance. Check the bargain bins at Wal-Mart, the online movies sites ( and such) and all of the cable channels that run old shows. Nick at Nite and TV Land are great for theses kind of shows. They will even do a week long spot for shows that only had 6 or so episodes. Then you have your super stations. They run a bunch of old shows too. All in all a pretty good show that did not get a good enough chance. Sometimes it is a simple as the show it is up against. Look at Law & Order. It is one of the longest running shows on TV. They moved it to go up against Lost. After about 2 weeks of getting pounded in the ratings it was moved back to it's original time slot. Shows like this should be given more of an opportunity.moreless
