The second series of Blandings starts this coming Sunday at 6.30 pm on BBC One. I've seen the trailer of the Saddleback pig travelling in the open top car and I can't wait for Sunday. Its unashamedly my kind of entertainment.

Incidentally, on this day in 1975 the death of the writer, Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse was announced. The writers career lasted for more than 70 years. He was a prolific writer and his works included novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics and many pieces of journalism.
He didn't hang about and managed fifteen plays and the lyrics for 250 songs that were used in his thirty musical comedies.
He'll be for ever remembered for having been the creator of Jeeves and Wooster but of course, he also wrote Sunday nights offering. Blandings. A fount of knowledge, that's what I am. Rolling Eyes

I love the books but was less than impressed by the TV series Sad

I just like the pigs. Very Happy

That goes without saying. I could have done with more pigs and fewer people Smile

i really like his j and w stuff ,as books or telly (especially fry n laurie style)

the blandings books are well observed the telly is a bit less cutting than the books

i recon he got caned for the nazi affiliation thing cos he was too accurate about the toffs of his time rather than his allegiances

fine chap imho ,proper observer and owt with pigs as the stars is ok by me

Easy viewing for lazy Sunday evenings.

It raised one or two sniggers but all in all, I reckon that it was a bit pathetic. Crying or Very sad

I dunno, I thought Harry Enfield was on fine form Laughing

I think that may have been one of the problems, he was so very obviously, Harry Enfield.

I just don't find it funny.
