Makes me sad that both had a pretty hard time after the show with their personal lives but I hope they're happy now. Xx"
Cheng from Penang, Malaysia on Mind Your Language: "I watched this show in the 80s with my family every week. As a teenager, I couldn't grasp everything from the show. However, watching it again now, I can truly appreciate the scripts. I miss the humours back then. People are too serious and sensitive these days."

Marie from Canada on Mind Your Language: "I always enjoyed watching this show when I was young and it's always been one of my favourites. Don't have a favourite cast member or episode because it's too hard to just pick one! I have enjoyed reading everyone's comments and it's good to know this show is loved by people of all ethnicities. Also great to read the comments by people with direct connections to the show. BTW, the Mind Your Language page has more comments on its tribute page than any other show on this website -- that in itself speaks to what a gem this show is! (Hope the people who decided to yank it off the air see this page.) RIP to cast and crew who have passed on."
Elaine Curran from Lancashire on The Wheeltappers: "My mum and dad were at the recording of some episodes of series 2...they were with a group from Atherton Sailors and Soldiers Club.Was lovely to see them on the DVD,especially as my Uncle Eric(dads brother)died not long after series was made.,my mum passed away in 1987 and my dad died Jan.2011."

Gopal from Bhutan on Mind Your Language: "I din't realise that this episodes were telecasted way back in 1978/79. So much of fun and this is the best comedy series I had ever watched.

Dennis Woodbury from Phoenix, Arizona on A Fine Romance: "Another example of why some English sitcoms endure. Dench, of course, is very good but it is the way all characters sync together in this that makes it work."
David Lewis from Perth Western Australia on The Comedians: "The funniest moment for me was when Charlie Williams came on the Comedians. What an accent!! He was the funniest guy I have ever heard. He wasn't too bad a football player either. I watched him playing for Doncaster Rovers against Liverpool.
Good on you Charlie."
anissa pane from Indonesia on Mind Your Language: "I am a student who is interested in sociolinguistics and related subjects dealing with multicultural communities. I also take those fields as the focus of my study.
One of my friends who come from the same field showed me an episode of the first season of 'Mind your language'. I fell in love with this program suddenly. Since that time, I have always tried to watch each episode continuously. Never get bored with all episodes. I even search for the information about all the actors and the actresses. (*feel sorry too about what happened to Barry Evans). He's a sweet and talented actor.
In my opinion, these comedy series are smart and very entertaining. They give the audience knowledge too. :)"
Susan Spear from Bath on The Comedians: "Feel so sad to hear of Mike Curtis's passing-my late partner, Adrian and I have been seeing his show for the past 30 years, have photographs of them together - Thank you Mike for having us in fits of laughter - start the car & RIP Sue X"
Gareth from Oswestry on Ever Decreasing Circles: "I was a big fan of Ever Decreasing Circles and continue to enjoy the repeats, however Martin would've been disappointed when he moved to Oswestry in the last episode - the railway station he references closed as part of Beeching's cuts in the 1960s."

Sarah Louise Roscoe from Yorkshire, England on George and Mildred: "i am only 20 yrs old but i absolutely love, love, love watching Man about the house and George and Mildred they are both great sitcoms ever and they can never be replaced. Yootha Joyce is absolutely my favourite actress in the whole wide world, i discovered Yootha in 2010 with the repeats on itv3 because my mum told me to leave it on so i did and now i am a really, really massive, massive fan of Yootha Joyce, George and Mildred and Man about the house and i just absolutely LOVE them all. Yootha Joyce is an absolutely lovely lady and a wonderful actress and i wish i could have met her she is one of the greatest comediennes and she is my absolute role model and i am never ever going to forget her because she is too special to me and nobody can never ever replace her as the wonderful actress she was, and nobody can replace Yootha and Brian as the absolutely wonderful George and Mildred."
Tony Woodward from Canada on Pie In The Sky: "Pie in the Sky is one of a trio of all time favourites I have on DVD and watch over and over. I even had to buy special equipment to play it because it was available only in PAL format when I bought it and we use NTSC format over here in Canada. But all that was worth it for this show and a host of British TV shows and older films that I can't get over here.
The other two in my classic trio are Morse and Lovejoy. Foyle's War and New Tricks also deserve my special mention, and it is interesting that Michael Kitchen in evil guise appears in the video snippet at the top of this page. Most TV crime shows, especially in North America, take themselves far too seriously and of course are too violent. I love the odd elements of humour and the bizarre in Pie and similar shows.
I recently watched again the Foyle's War episode "A Lesson in Murder". When I saw Carlo's Ristorante I immediately said "But that's Pie in the Sky!". Now that restaurant is definitely Hemel Hempstead because the Foyle's War website says so on its Locations page. It also mentions that Pie in the Sky was filmed there. Carlo's Ristorante was torched by an anti-Italian mob at the end of that episode. A terrific conjuring trick by the SFX crew and it was very convincing!
So why is there no Pie in the Sky webpage too? After a break, Foyle's War has three new episodes planned for release in 2013. What a good idea! - more Pie in the Sky too please, and I think the idea was nowhere near mined out when it was cancelled by bean-counting TV top executives. But meanwhile I can still love the old episodes."
MRS DEEPA RAKESH from PUNE on I Dream of Jeannie: "I was 10 when i used to see the episodes of I Dream of Jennie. I dont remember a lot but it was one of the best serial on television. I want to see all those episods again along with my 7 yrs. old daughter & 4 yrs. old son. Thank you"
Paulie from Ireland on Londons Burning: "Londons Burning was so good. The guys were masters at fish extinguishing. And they had really funny lines. I liked the Greek boy with the Dutch girlfriend. Dutch girls are really dirty. I had one once. Lol. I was sad when he died. Maybe I will to holland and look her up. They should bring LB back, for sure."
Sabine from Munich, Germany on Miami Vice: "I've always loved Miami Vice and the fascination is still there after all those years! The cast was great, Don Johnson was so good-looking and such a good actor. I also loved Saundra Santiago as I think she's also a great, versatile actress and a real beauty. I lived in Florida for several weeks in 1986 and 1987, but never saw a shooting of Miami Vice. Watching the series just brings back wonderful memories of Florida to me."
Maggie from Queensland on Taggart: "While watching a repeat about a year ago of an early Taggart episode I told my 20-something daughter that I used to have a crush on James Macpherson. Her response was "Isn't he a bit young for you?" Now his character would be but back in the early 90's he wasn't. The fact I was married with 3 small children in neither here nor there! I've enjoyed watching some of the repeats especially as I missed so many first time around. After Mark McManus died I didn't realize they continued to make the series and didn't watch again till early noughties. I was pleased to see it still going with Mike Jardine and Jackie Reid and with the addition of Stuart Fraser and Robbie Ross both of which I hadn't seen before. I did find it a bit strange that the series was still called Taggart even though the title character was no longer there. I've never seen the episode where Mike Jardine was killed but I was sorry when I heard about it later. I hope they show some more repeat episodes especially as the series seems to have been axed. I'd love to see some closure for the remaining characters so who knows if maybe they'll do a special or even a spin off series. Wouldn't that be great!"
John Peterson from London on Columbo: "I am really trying hard to remember the film in which Lieutenant Columbo takes his TV into a TV Repair Shop I think for his dog to watch, if anyone remembers I would be glad to know."
Roger Rowley from Essex England on The Darling Buds of May: "Catherine Zeta Jones should consider doing a 1 off remake of the Darling Buds Of May With as many of the original cast as humanly possible & that husband of hers could play the part of the general"

Mick from Australia on Tales of the Unexpected: "I'm not sure if this was a TOTU but one episode where a radio broadcaster had a weekly spot reading a tale and he kept getting calls to stop or something would happen! Can anyone help as to what this was called - terrifying and brilliant."
Dick Drake from Glasgow on The Good Old Days: "In answer to the queries re the huntsmen spoof the comedian who performed this was Denny Willis, now sadly no longer with us. A very slick routine as he got more and more out of time with the huntsmen quartet. I think the song was "The red fox he has left his lair" or something like that and I believe it's on You Tube."
Melissa from Maine on Murder, She Wrote: "I used to watch this with my grandmother when I was growing up. I am still a fan today and own all 12 seasons plus the 4 movie collection and half of the books and the video game. I am trying to start a collection of Murder, She Wrote items. "Has there been a murder?""
