Television Addiction

Television Addiction"So, what are you watching tonight?" Joyce was staying in for the evening, but the Friday night moviethon was getting to be a fixture.

Dawn explained that it was a musical about two clerks who worked in the stuffy Foreign Office in Whitehall during the Suez Crisis of 1956.

Spike could see Joyce's eyes glazing over. "Bit before your time, love, but Connie Francis, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley... always classic."

Buffy flounced by and picked up the box. "Ooo... Ewan MacGregor. Count me in."

Which is how they all came to be singing along to Lipstick On Your Collar.

Loved this. "Bit before your time, love, I just noticed that it is SO difficult to remember that Spike is WAY older than Joyce... especially after Lovers' Walk!

I'm glad you're enjoying their ongoing adventures.

I don't know that it met the challenge. I was trying for differing tastes finding common ground in Dennis Potter.

Hee. I just love the mental image. This was a sweet little tidbit.

I love Lipstick On Your Collar and would love it on DVD, but the bloody BBC is depriving me of Dennis Potter goodness. I'm glad you enjoyed the story.
