And then there's Maude? Sorry for being silly, but it looks like a mean Bea Arthur to me :-O

That was my thought exactly.

Oh, you're not being silly at all. Bea Arthur, mean, never. The comment was directed at Tom because he does not like any other genre than Drama. Sci-Fi and Comedy are below him. He would never watch the BBC version of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for instance, let alone get the humor in it.

The avatar is from one of Mel Brooks masterpieces, History of the World Part I.

Ohhhhh, Brooks' History of the World is classic!

So adore BBC Hitchhiker's, brilliant...in fact my favorite film is a British comedy, the original 1967 "Bedazzled" with Dudley Moore and Peter Cook (swoon!), and the final scene is incredibly prophetic.

Oh, I love the original Bedazzled. Peter Cook makes an awesome devil. Peter Cook and John Glover from Brimstone tie as my favorite actors playing the devil.

Speaking of British comedies, have you ever watched Coupling and Father Ted? Two of my favorites.

It wasn't until today that I knew what your Ba'al avatar was. I just finished that episode.

The actor that plays Ba'al also makes a good devil.

Yeah, Peter Cook is priceless as the devil (aka George Spiggott, lol). Also love the Drimble Wedge and the Vegetation bit -- "you fill me with inertia" :-O I liked that soundtrack so much (pure Dudley) that I bought it on a CD-R from eBay.

I've heard of Coupling and Father Ted, but haven't seen them...may have to check them out!

I HIGHLY recommend them both.

I come from a very Irish Catholic family as I'm willing to bet your husband does, and I didn't think my mom was going to like Father Ted because it is so irreverent, but to my delight she did.

I've never been able to get my wife to watch Coupling (it's sort of a Friends meets Sex in the City but much better than both those shows)with me but as I would watch it in our living room howling with laughter she would start laughing in our bedroom at how much I was laughing.
