Neighbors ??? & Poof movies are the first thing that comes to your mind

I don't make neighbors I would have better background music and fire half the cast and have more hotties.
As for Priscilla Queen of the desert I always thought brock made that movie.

I don't do Downtown Abbey but I have made up a rap that goes with the hilarious ad on TV.
The ad is so funny the music has nothing to do with whats happening on screen.

There is this slow build up and all this super cool action music.

The problem is this is the action.

He looks at her
She walks across the room
They kiss
Two guys stand by the wall and argue.
The car is doing 5km/h towards the house.
She walked backwards down the stairs
They argue

and the pinnacle of the action

a Bridal veil is thrown down the stairs.


Please, with all that action I now can afford to look for dust under my lounge suite.
Seriously I do crack up and do a rap every time the ad comes on though

I think the show is more meant for geriatrics so they don't have a coronary .


PS: That isn't my real rap I just couldn't be botthered googling the TV ad

funny that rumi- because; being the aristocracy and what many of them got up to=you only have to think of charlie and his uncle the king who married the American Wallace etc- that a lot of the sons of the family, that inherited the titles; were often not the progeny of the lord of the manor anyway!
the jews have it right- can't fake a materlineal line!!

I wouldn't want to live in that era. The show is based on the fact that you can only leave titles/estates to male children. So they drag in a cousin for the oldest daughter to marry. The fact that it isn't even the pommie Earl's money doesn't even matter. The money belongs to his American wife.

Fair comment but I was referring to the quality of the production more than anything, and wondered if anyone else was interested in that type of program...

I did not watch it until recently when they put the last series on every night, i got quite interested in it. The new series begins on sunday so will either watch or record it....anyone else like the period english stuff or does the colonialism kick in from the convict days?...i would loved to have lived in that era but knowing my luck i would have been the twat cleaning horse shit out of the stables.......
