My wife didn't care for them because the humour was just too subtle for her, but she did grow up American through and through.

Perhaps the difference between yours and my take is because I had the luxury of watching all of them in order where you might not have done so. A vast amount of the development happens across episodes rather than within each as stand-alones.

        The stories build upon each other! I just watched the first 5 and not quite in order so I saw Berty trying to get Anatole back to the aunts before I saw the episode where he persuades his friend and... more
        • I'm in two minds about Stephen Fry - mike, Fri Aug 31 08:13

              How right you are and I bet you recognize that element in my own psychological makeup too. I certainly do. In case you didn't realize this I depend very much on your friendship because without a like ... more

                  Sarge, You are probably right about us but I just can't see me sitting around in a gents club. LOL. Oh, what has happened to Goose? Although I am not a hunter I did enjoy his stories.
