    As Time Goes By is back again here - at 10:00 PM. Perfect for unwinding and skipping the news.

    ^ a must watch, along with the Kennedy Center Honors (not on PBS). That's what DVRs are for!

    I really enjoyed it...warm, funny, wonderful music...wish Marvin was still with us. :(

    But through his musical legacy, I guess he IS still with us.

    Caught most of the Call The Midwife Christmas special - why didn't I know that was on? Anyway I love this show and all the actors are just brilliant as far as I'm concerned. Just a little confused about the doctor's son and his illness - I didn't get the secret taking of the pills - was he starting to feel ill and self medicating or is he supposed to be some sort of addict in the making? Very peculiar. I thought the boys had poisoned themselves but that wasn't it at all.:confused:

    I agree...that business with the boys sharing a drink at the party, and the pills was very confusing. Maybe it was meant to be a red herring so that the diagnosis of polio would be more of a shock/surprise.

    Nope. PBS web videos are geoblocked in Canada. Which really p!sses me off, since the Seattle affiliate markets itself as serving both Washington State and BC -- and they're always happy to take our money during pledge drives. :mad:

    ^ Thanks for that dardar. The video quality is pretty crappy but it's better than nothing -- I'll save that as my plan b. if I can't find a better copy to download.

    Thank you thank you thank you! Skatesindreams is my new favourite person -- she sent me a nice HQ version of Call the Midwife, so I can stop sulking now! :cheer:

    Loved it, of course. Esp. Trixie and Sister Julienne.
