re: Most popular or impactful/influential shows that had surprisingly few seasons? - Tigris
[quote]Nothing can compare to the impact this group had on comedy.[/quote] I think this is true for the States, but England had the Goon Show before Python and it heavily influenced them. Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers, Marty Feldman, Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, and David Frost were all doing simil...

re: Should I watch Downton Abbey? - Tigris
[quote]Maggie Smith is fantastic in Downton Abbey - some of the later seasons get a little out there but at the end of the day it’s a well acted soap opera (not as high brow as some dilute themselves into thinking it is)[/quote] Ditto, aside from "dilute". In season 3 or 4 the Soap aspect fina...

re: Thoughts on the Subaru Outback? - Tigris

re: Pack your bags! - Tigris
[quote]how does that work as far as Covid tests if you have to fly through somewhere else?[/quote] At a lot of major foreign hubs it is OK to transit, you just can't enter the country. I'll fly through Amsterdam in 12 days - Delta and KLM to Kenya and back from Tanzania. At least I hope I am, K...

re: So Tell me how yall got your usernames... - Tigris
Bengal Tiger has a cool scientific name - Panthera Tigris Tigris. Also, US troops were still engaged around the Tigris river in Iraq so the river was in the news, so two reasons. The first user name I requested was "666" which was rejected, unfortunately. ...

re: Covid-19 PCR test for travel - Tigris
[quote]PCR takes 2-3 days for lab analysis usually.[/quote] Yeah, 4 hour results is almost certainly an antigen test which is useless for travel. In 2 weeks I head for Kenya and need a 96 hour result - ie 3 days before boarding. I may have gone a little overboard but there is a lot on the lin...

[quote]the people in Alaska are horrible.[/quote] Just the opposite in my experience. I wandered the state for a month and a half one summer and loved the Alaskans I met. Very independent and self sufficient. This was away from the cities - in Anchorage, maybe, didn't really care for it. ...

[quote]The Paper Chase Great movie to watch before being a 1L[/quote] I loved the series too - Houseman was what became House which is a really interesting thought. I'd always assumed House = Homes (Holmes), but the other is good too, or both. Absence of Malice desperately needs a mentio...

re: Does "House" with Hugh Laurie ever alter the formula? (Spoilers) - Tigris
It's funny, but watching A Bit of Fry and Laurie on Netflix has resulted in me starting House from the beginning. Fry and Laurie both would have fit well into a Python type show. [img]https://ichef.bbci.co.uk/news/1024/cpsprodpb/13285/production/_110596487_frylaurie95.jpg[/img] And Laurie is ...

re: If Monty Python were still around... - Tigris
South Park really has been a continuation of Monty Python in a lot of ways, at least in spirit. Monty Python did get somewhat political at times, though it was hard for American viewers to pick up on a lot of it. But they did the same thing as South Park, make fun of both sides, and make fun of Au...

re: Was rural/ small town America ever nice? - Tigris
[quote]the manufacturing jobs that supported those areas have mostly left[/quote] It was the death of the small family farm that killed off small town America. My mom grew up in a town of around 300 in southern Illinois (a VERY southern town). It really was Mayberry. We'd visit for a couple of...

re: Wildlife Photographer Hunts For The Elusive Great Grey Owl - Tigris
She probably tied a mouse on top of her hat. I have friends that went up to northern Minnesota in the winter for Owl photos - Great Grey, Snowy Owl, Northern Hawk-Owl, Boreal Owl. They hired a guide who knew the spots and on the drive from the airport he stopped at a pet store and bought a bunch ...
