About Me:    Have been on the board for a number of years. Not much of a filmgoer but very much enjoy vintage/classic TV comedies such as Our Miss Brooks, The Lucy Show, Bewitched, Get Smart, The Odd Couple and The Bob Newhart Show as well as the Britcom Only Fools and Horses. Basically a guy of simple tastes and fairly uncomplicated lifestyle.
