For the past months with nothing new on US television, I've been watching several British television shows from the past. I've always enjoyed British television since seeing them on US public broadcasting channels. Comedies like Monty Python, Good Neighbors, The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, Blackadder etc. The detective series like Sherlock Holmes and Poirot. Amazon has several British shows like Silent Witness, Luther, Unforgotten. YouTube now has Midsomer Murders and Poirot. Many of these shows use extra cast for one show and there seem to be so many in Britain who can play some odd or quirky looking as well as acting characters. The United States, which has a much higher population, doesn't seem to have as much variety in acting in television and movies. Maybe it's the longer format of the shows. The writing also seems to be better. They don't rely as much on fight scenes and chase scenes and usually have some sub plots going on. I have a lot of programming to watch.
