giles and sue (and their new pigs)

Here's a clip from this series, a BBC wonderfest of backyard homesteading. I think it is hilarious, and have been enjoying the series online before the office. Have fun with these two, folks.

Thank you for sharing. Not having cable I had no idea this was a new show, or again a show? I had heard tell of the previous one but enjoyed seeing clips within this sample.

This is awesome. They did another series called "The Supersizers Go...", where they investigated food and culture from the past by submersing themselves in it for a week. I'm enjoying this because of that, as well as their work on this show.

Did you ever watch the original "Good Life?" It's fantastic. It's hilarious. It's perfect. Get your hands on it.

I must second the vote for the original series (alternately known as Good Neighbors) - we laughed ourselves to tears watching that. SO hilarious! Mainly because we'd done most of the same things ourselves.

The pea pod wine still kills me.

I have laughed so much watching this. They are hilarious! The egg part had me almost rolling on the floor. So funny. So how do I see more of them?

The original "Good Life" is the biscuit! I grew up watching it too, very very funny 70s comedy.

I LOVE the Good Life!! I actually recommended it in a post a few days ago, and got excited when I heard the opening theme in this video.
Though a modern reality show of The Good Life? I'll admit, I'm a little intrigued.

This was great. I had no idea it was on TV and I suppose streamed too. Thank you for sharing.

to watch this series on youtube in full you just need to know the code. They are called E1P1-4 that means Episode 1, part 1 of 4. So I showed you there the first part of the second episode. to start at the beginning search youtube for Giles and Sue Good Life E1P1-4 and when it is done, start next with E1P2-4, then E1P3-4 and so on. it has twelve little 15 minute clips that make up three hour long epsiodes, and a 4th Christmas special!

Oh what fun! I think my husband and I will be watching this a lot. Our friends gave us the "All Creatures Great and Small" series for Christmas and we've been enjoying it a lot. For years it was our entertainment while eating supper on Sunday nights and it's good to have our own set since it's no longer on tv.

Thanks so much for telling me about this series. Can't wait to watch the rest of them.

This was just too funny. I grew up watching The Good Life (or Good Neighbors, as it was called here in the States). It was my favorite TV show. Rediscovered it a few years ago - bought all the recordings and have about worn them out. This program was the inspiration for me wanting to become self-sufficient. To was hilarious to see that someone is trying to recreate the sit-com! Their back garden even looks like the on on the show. More power to 'em. Pity things don't work as well here - I can't imagine anyone in the US taking a dozen eggs in exchange for a side of bacon in a shop! Ah, well - one can dream!
