Upstairs Downstairs

    My story, and I'm sticking to it, is that SWMBO made me watch the above last night.

    Now I know that many of you have vivid imaginations and some are especially good at consipracy. Listen up and here's a bit of fun - maybe.

    All of the downstairs women had been touched by the ugly stick if you will pardon the expression. They were inarticulate, unintelligent and dressed in drab.

    Except, except, for the new Nursery Maid who appeared in a brightly coloured 'designer' suit, handmade shoes and is intelligent, articulate and, in this company a real stunner.

    You understand that I'm talking about the characters of course and not the actresses.;)

    Now here's the question. The signals are plain enough - it will all end in tears.

    Now you give me the upcoming story line based on what I've told you.

    Didn't watch it but from what you say this will probably happen:-

    Upstairs 'Gent' will fancy the new Nursery Maid

    Nursery Maid with be laid in the Nursery by upstairs Gent (while kids are asleep)

    Nursery Maid gets pregnant

    Upstair Gent dumps her like the proverbial hot potato and she gets the sack

    Nursery Maid takes Upstairs Gent to employment tribunal and gets her just desserts (OK I made that up!)

    I was upstairs on my computer when the programme was on, so I didn't see any of it. I don't watch Downton Abbey, either; it's all been done before....(and so has the Nursery Maid, probably...)

    The whole cast will be abducted by aliens but the flying saucer will explode on take-off, flattening the whole city and naturally killing all the characters. The problem is that there is still scope for a prequel.

    You didn't mention the scene where the monkey got gassed!

    Sounds like the average Aylesbury woman!

    Didn't think it relevant to the 'beautiful' nursery maid.

    That will have the forumites guessing.

    Did not watch the programme I'm proud to say, however I do have a question: Given the quality of clothing worn by said maid (Except, except, for the new Nursery Maid who appeared in a brightly coloured 'designer' suit, handmade shoes and is intelligent, articulate and, in this company a real stunner.) has she perhaps already been on a 'nice little earner' - or, for the more crudely-minded -been putting it about a bit already?.

    Apparently during the blitz a stray bomb mean for The Houses Of Parliament goes awry....:eek:;):D

    Being a fan of the original classic series I declined to watch this 'revival', but had the misfortune to walk into the room whilst it was on. The scene in question seemed to be a shouting match around the servants table which could pretty much come straight from Deadenders. Why oh why must the BBC screw up everything in this tiresome bludgeoning manner?

    Never saw the original but I was aware that this was on the box.....anyone know if it was shot on an SLR? I think there was one seen in a dark bedroom which caught my eye....seemed very noisey?

    Not since the suffocatingly dull Jeremy Vine took it over. If it was his brother at least there'd be some wit ;)
