Now Showing - "Kingswood Country"



Yesterday, while recovering from my kidney stone, I decided that I felt like watching YouTube. Not content to watch the same old same old I made a stab in the dark, and typed in "Australian sitcom". This is what I got: Kingswood Country.

It's not terribly good, although it's apparently based on Til Death Do Us Part, the Britcom which so memorably inspired All In The Family. Well, I've seen Til Death Do Us Part and I've seen All In The Family. Kingswood Country is neither.

Then again, Australia isn't known for its sitcoms. I may do some further research and/or watching. The available clips don't exactly bristle with references, although according to Wikipedia the show was topical.

(The title seems to be a reference to Kingswood, a suburb on the western edge of Sydney, as much as a car of the same name.)

I remember you saying you struggled with stones but I didn't know you were passing one, too. Mine still hasn't moved which tells me it must be a big 'un and I'm not looking forward to its eventual elimination. Argh.

It was either smaller than the last one or a series of smaller ones. Whatever it was, it reached critical mass while I was at work, but thankfully seems to have passed.

In the meantime, I'll be rooting for you.
