I recently was given a set of DVD of a British series that was on in the 1990s called As Time Goes By.

It was a little irritating at first but I must admit that I'm now a big fan of that show. Was it a big hit in Britain when it was on the air?

It certainly seems to have a huge internet following. :)

Yes it was very popular, think it used to be on early Sunday evening, when pracically everyone was watching TV.

It's not exactly to my taste, but Judi Dench is :worship:

Yes indeed very popular over here. Or it was. Not made anymore (I think) I think there were about 7 or 8 seasons made.

It was fairly popular but not really a british classic :shrug:

It was fairly popular and even has a bit of a cult following in the States thanks to PBS, but I felt it was a show that promoted a very outdated, twee, white, middle-class image of Britain. It was only mildly funny and a total waste of its lead actors' talents. Dame Judi deserved a lot better than that.

Agreed. It was a bit *too* gentle IMO.

It is a bit on the gentle side but I think that's why I like it.
Almost every sitcom in the US seems to think that they need to be "ungentle" for want of a better word.
