  1. Jennifer Kirby who plays Val is currently in the US and she tweeted that she didn't realize they cut so much out of the show here. She mentioned that Val and her cousin made up and a scene of Dr. Turner petting a rabbit. I noticed three other things that got cut. There was a montage of photos of Val, Lucille and Trixie sitting on the steps in their uniforms and dark hose showing a little leg and a hand choosing one of the photos. There was a cute scene with Shelagh cleaning Tim's old school blazer and she tells the girls to feed Genevieve. They run outside and then you hear shrieking. Shelagh and Patrick rush out and Shelagh looks in the rabbit cage and notices 2 baby bunnies which she says look like animated giblets which was why the little girls were so traumatized. And Dr. Turner says he thought Flopsy was a girl. Also, in the scene where Val, Lucille and Trixie are going through the hose they won, after Lucille remarks about one pair being fuschia, Val picks up another pair and notes that they are turquoise fishnets. Nurse Crane says, "If you think you're wearing those to work, I beg to differ."
  2. Here's a blog from simple justice which is almost always very sympathetic to the idea of young black men being the victims of police brutality. He's siding with Linda Fairstein on this one.
  3. FWIW, the UK version of the show was filmed in 8 days. Has anyone ever said how long it took for the US version of the show to be filmed? Also, was that Jon Heder playing one of the "advisors" in Banana's video?
  4. Yeah, I couldn't recall if they were even alive or not.
  5. Could Frog be one of the guys from Kriss Kross? There was a reference to "Jump" which was their big hit
  6. No, he died in 1972. His younger brother, The Duke of Gloucester died in 1974.
  7. I looked it up, and Prudence Strong was an actual British "poetess." I gather she was kind of like Helen Steiner Rice.
  8. Tony Joe White sang "Poke Salad Annie." I believe he wrote it too. I think Elvis covered it.
  9. The people I know who have been following him and his music since last season say his genre is something called "swamp rock." I checked it out on Wikipedia since I wasn't familiar with that term, and they give Creedence Clearwater Revival as an example.
  10. I can still remember having to wear a hat and gloves if you went into the city. And for children's parties too.
  11. Regarding illegal abortions, Val also pointed out that there was the danger of a young woman or girl being rendered permanently unable to bear children because of it.
  12. Jennifer Worth did a critique of "Vera Drake." According to her, the abortion method used in the film always resulted in the death of the woman.
  13. In that scene, Dr. Turner and Shelagh had been measuring Angela and Mai's height when Timothy comes by and tells them he's going around to friends to listen to "A Hard Day's Night" and he's taking some beer he's found in a cupboard with him. Shelagh jokes that she needs to check if he's "tall enough" to drink beer but since he's now taller than her, she kind of indicates she thinks he is. Patrick also observes that Paul McCartney's mother was a midwife. There's another kind of "companion scene" to that in Episode 2 where Shelagh tells Patrick there's some coffee left if he'd like a cup. He declines, but Timothy pipes up that he'll take it. Shelagh tells him that percolated coffee isn't good for him and that tea is strong enough for a teenaged boy. She then sends him upstairs with the little girls to supervise their brushing their teeth. IOW, beer is fine for a boy his age, but not coffee.
  14. How long ago was that video taken? Let's not forget that both Jeremiah and his family have disputed the narrative of how he was rejected by them for being gay.
  15. Don't forget her Spanish lessons.
  16. I think it was Ryan Seacrest's absence from the show.
  17. I was wondering about that too. My guess is that Laine didn't think he had the vocal range to handle it. I think it's something he will need to work on.
  18. FWIW, The original by Merrilee Rush
  19. Joe Wilkinson is in Ricky Gervais's show, "After Life."
  20. Regarding Mai, I don't believe we'll have a resolution of her story in the finale. I noticed that
  21. Anne's children weren't entitled to royal titles, but they could have had noble ones if Mark Phillips had become a peer which he chose not to do.
  22. Edward and Mrs. Simpson is available on Acorn .
  23. While Feodora never returned to live in England, her 3rd son Prince Victor of Hohenlohe-Langenburg , who was married morganatically to a British woman named Laura Seymour, did. He became a naturalized British citizen and a member of the Royal Navy.
  24. Or maybe her mother got married after a while, and her husband is who Phyllis is referring to. Kind of like how Timothy Turner refers to Shelagh as his "mum."
  25. Yes, her son having hemophilia has nothing to do with being descended from the Romanovs since only Nicholas and Alexandra's family was affected. I checked to see if maybe one of the other Romanovs may have married a carrier or someone with the disease, but they had not.
