Keeping Up Appearances: 1990s UK Series
Yesterday I picked up a grandchild from a preschool run by a woman from the UK. I mentioned to her that DH and I had stumbled across a British TV series available on Netflix, called "Keeping Up Appearances."
Not only did she say she loved that series, but others who overheard us stepped right up to say they absolutely loved it.
I think it is a "Hot Topic" because the series playfully takes on people across the British social strata...but especially the snobbish, social climbing central figure, Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced Bouquet). The same types of characters in the series can be found here in the US. We all know some people who enjoy putting on airs and making themselves tiresome to everyone around them. And we know others who are less well off, but remain down to earth and likeable, and well endowed with common sense.
This got me thinking about this forum, our different backgrounds, places of origin, and ways of seeing the world. It has me wondering if anyone here watches Keeping Up Appearances, and what they think of it. I think it's hilarious and would like to know what you all think.
