Watch the classics, with a few drama (The Hour...) but I have to
admit my favorites are the weird ones with a bit (understand: a
lot) of black humor: Black books, Father Ted, FotC, Garth

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

special to me. And there's something about the smell and touch of
