Funny thing happened on the way to the Emmys

November 27, 2008


Oop, almost forgot!

We’re in a taxi, on the way to the Emmys, and the driver asks us where we’re going. We tell him about the nomination and he says “Oh, my wife, she’s crazy about British television, she loves that show…oh, what is it…set in the Fifties or the Sixties…”

“The Fifties or the Six–oh, is it ‘Heartbeat’? Would that be it?”

“No, no…oh, what is it?…It’s a drama…”

“Eh…there’s a thing about a police detective during the Second World War…”

“No, no, I don’t think it’s a wartime thing….”

“Are you sure it’s not the Seventies? It could be ‘Life on Mars’?…”

“No…it’s definitely Fifties or Sixties– ehh, what the hell is it called? ”

“God, I dunno…eh, do you know which channel it–”

“–oh, wait! I got it! ‘Eastenders’!”
