TV in the UK

I think that many people often wonder, 'What's on TV where you live?' Well, it's pretty much the same things that are on TV in the USA. Some shows are the same but are the British counterpart. For example, Hairy Bikers in the UK stars two guys from the UK. So You Think You Can Dance is the British version. We have America's Got Talent and Britain's Got Talent. Moreover, many shows that come on premium channels in the USA that you pay extra to watch, come on "regular" tele here in the UK. For example, Dexter, Spartacus, Mad Men, and Boardwalk Empire show in the UK on regularly included channels. The only drawback to that is that here in the UK, we get premiers of shows/series about 3-6 months later than the premier in the USA. When Steve and I just can't wait, we watch the slingbox or just pay for it on the AppleTV.

Just for Fun:
Frog has started walking the wall quite often in the past week. It's like he has conquered some fear and now feels like he is king. He gets up there every time he goes outside now. He spent several days just standing there in my garden staring at it. I thought he was eating my plants, but maybe he was just trying to assess the situation. :o)  haha


  1. Frog is looking a lot better!

  2. Unless it's a British show, then you guys get it waaay before we do. A whole year sometimes. Merlin. Downton Abbey. I'm jealous.


I am happy to hear from you!
