Don't suppose anyone saw . . .

This really only applies to the Brits on here, but did anybody see Only Fools & Horses on sunday night? (I haven't had any internet access since then until today). Because in the opening scene in the bar, where Boycie is getting Del to do his dirty work, the song playing is "Spies Like Us" by the man himself!

The difference between genius and insanity is merely the difference between success and failure.

That's pretty cool, Liam. Even though I'm not a Brit, we recently got access to BBC America. I watched this great murder-mystery show last night called 'Murder in Mind.' I'm sure you guys have heard of it, but being American, I'd never seen it until last night. I quite enjoyed it.

I also recall an old 'Only Fools and Horses' episode where Uncle Albert gets lonely and depressed and goes out on his own while the music being played is 'Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey'. I doubt that's been played on a single other TV programme or film ever!

I remember that one too, Skyjude! I can't remember the actual episode, but I remember when I first heard "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey", I recognised it from hearing it on that episode! As I only got into Macca's solo stuff last year, and have been a big fan of Only Fools & Horses for much longer (I know, I know, I've got a funny sense of priorities . . .)!

I'll have to check that our, Ram. I've only caught snippets here and there.
