Mr. Humphries, R.I.P.

1935 -2007.

Bringing British television (See also Dr. Who and 'Allo! 'Allo!) to America is one of the few things Socialized Television did right.

Duuuude! Sorry to hear this. Mister Humphries *made* "Are You Being Served." I'd forgotten he was on "'Allo, 'Allo," and indeed, can't place him.

I haven't watched it yet, but taped the new "Doctor Who" Saturday night-it's probably even more dorky than the episodes I remember from 1981, but I look forward to seeing it after work this evening.

And I had to tape it, since you asked and all, because I was visiting with my year-old nephew this weekend. Nothing spells fun like playing a harmonica in front of him, as he might stare at me with rapt attention, or get scared and start bawling at the top of his little lungs.
