A recent conversation I had here with Last Hussar left me thinking a lot about entertainment. I watch a pretty fair amount of television. I watch a lot of movies. I read a lot of books. I also read a lot of comic books. Then there’s music.
I’m a pretty heavy consumer of entertainment.
That conversation left me realizing that I owe a huge amount of my enjoyment of each of those medias to the British. From Doctor Who to Sherlock Holmes to The Beatles, a startlingly large percentage of what I enjoy stems from the British aisles.
So, I’d like to publicly thank my friends from across the pond. To some degree you have made life more bearable for me.
Below the fold you’ll find a partial list of the writers, actors, characters, series, musicians and other things I’m thankful for.
Arthur Conan Doyle
Herbert George Wells
George Bernard Shaw
Gilbert and Sullivan
Wallace and Gromit
Anthony Stewart Head
28 Days Later
Shaun of The Dead
Wire In The Blood
Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy
Etc, etc, etc…….
