I thought I would refresh this post.
First of all, according to my almanac, New Zealand has about 3 million population. Note that I did say about. It also says the US has about 300 million. This would mean to me that the US has about one hundred times the population of New Zealand. Which would mean that 100 times as many people in the US should watch Catherine Tate as in New Zealand. But there must be something fundamentally wrong with my math. So I am going to just forget that portion of the reason I have refreshed this.
When I originally posted this I had seen the program 3-4 times, not sure. But I determined one thing: If I did not know who the person was that I was looking at, then it must be Catherine Tate. I announced this to DW who told me that my powers of preception never failed to amaze and astound her.
Tonight I am alone in front of the TV. Nobody to help me out. I have watched the 4th or 5th episode of Catherine Tate and the most amazing thing occurs to me. OK women, go ahead and have a good laugh on me! I see this little "man" in a dark suit with a completely shaved bald head and rectangular glasses that speaks in a very high "gay" voice and it suddenly strikes me OMG, this is Catherine Tate, too. Now I suppose all of you regular watchers find this very amusing. But I found it so funny I thought I would fess up to having missed this before.
I have lived a couple of years in the UK and most of my life in the US and my repertoire goes a little beyond just Monty Python, Are you being Served, and Keeping up Appearances, but I must say this is the greatest English show of them all. No wait, the greatest show.......period. I just wish I could watch it without all the bleeping bleeps.
Hope you all got a good laugh over this. It is what I intended. I just cannot believe I did not catch on to this last week!
