Mind Your Language!

Am just done with my 'marathon' on the Mind Your Language complete series... for the twentieth! (oh well, I guess more~ haha). This TV show was played and overplayed in the UK, Middle East and India. The series is in 6 volumes offering the complete collection of over 750 hours of pure laughter!

Well, let me tell you a little bit about my favourite 'otai' sitcom.

In the league of Monthly Python and Foulty Towers, Mind Your Language on of the most hilarious and politically incorrect TV Sit-Comes ever created. Barry Evans plays Jeremy Brown (ohhh,.. my dear Mr. Brown!), a mind mannered English teacher, keen and ready to take on the world of language! That is until he meets his new students: an Indian, a Pakistan, an Arab, an Italian, a Greek, a Japanese, a French, a Chinese and many more,.. who can barely speak a word of English between them. His life is further complicated by the formidable night school principal Miss Courtney, who is destined to make Jeremy's life a living hell. Not to forget the school staff: Sid and Gladys.

Sadly, my favourite Mr. Brown, Barry Evans passed away on 11 February 1997 (wah,.. I was born on 11 February 1979~ what a surreal!). He was found dead in a dilapidated bungalow and Evans' death remains a mystery to this day.

One of the memorable quotes: -

Police Sergeant: What is your name?
Juan Cervantes: Por favor?
Police Sergeant: How do you spell that?
Jeremy Brown
: That's not his name!
Police Sergeant: Oh, giving me a fake name, are we?
Juan Cervantes: Por favor?
Police Sergeant: I'll come back to you, Mr. Por Favor, or whatever you name is!


My all the way sitcom~ yes, so vintage rite?! They never fail to make me laugh when ever I need one. Haha~ "Oh blimey!..." **one of Ali's typical catchphrases (the Pakistani student: Ali Nadeem)~

Morale of the sitcom: Practice and never give up to learn and perform~ though you know you are such a loser, like me-uh.
