My life, my interests, my lessons, my journey. Enjoy the ride!
Thanks to my dad, I love British culture and television. That’s why I started HipAnglophile. I wanted to share my favorite British television shows and travel locations. My dad introduced me to the Benny Hill Show when I was 9 years old. I also remember quite a few evenings watching The Avengers, Doctor Who, James Bond movies, and The Saint.
Since then, I have watched every murder mystery series from Miss Marple to Midsommer Murders. My new favorites are EastEnders, Casualty, and Holby City. So, I hope you enjoy my posts on HipAnglophile!
Yes, of course, Si, Oui, and yes. This storyline didn’t need a returning character. It could’ve been done with a current character. I see the guilt that Stacey will feel for not going w/an impulsive old friend getting in the way of the message—Date Rape/Nonconsent. #EastEnders
I was thinking about the effort it takes to blend storylines in soaps as I was catching up on a week’s worth of Corrie and Emmerdale. The producers and writers only have about 30 minutes to tell characters’ stories and to keep us entertained. Coronation Street, Emmerdale, and Hollyoaks have managed to do that consistently. However, my favorite, EastEnders, is still trying to find that “30-Minute Magic”.Continue reading
Watching No Offense tonight on AcornTV! I’m glad they made Season 2 available. I needed to laugh tonight. It was a long disappointing two days. The humor helped to clear my mind so that I could put things into perspective. This to shall pass…
I’m enjoying #StuartHighway even w/his dark behavior & emotional outbursts. I would hate to find out that he sexually assaulted/raped #TinaCarter when she was younger. Redemption won’t be an option. #EastEnders https://t.co/0dGvuZyw0F — BovaryCee ♋️🌻🙋🏾 (@BovarysComplnt) July 8, 2018 Before we get too deep into the summer, we need to …

Yasss! Dirk Gently, Holistic Detective Agency is finally back! I’ve been waiting for Season 2 on Hulu. I enjoyed the original BritVersion and this reboot is pretty good. Glad I noticed the new episodes today. It was a great break after today’s World Cup Games (still shocked about Messi). I like the quirky humor and the supernatural theme in the episodes. The show also appeals to my morbid sense of humor. Seasons 1 and 2 are now on Hulu, so enjoy. By the time you read this, I will have binge-watched half the episodes.
EastEnders Phil Mitchell (Steven McFadden) did his best to convince Kim Fox-Hubbard (Tameka Empson) not to trust DI Ainsworth. He even told Kim that “He was trying to be nice,” when warning her about Ainsworth. That made me giggle. (I actually laughed out loud and interrupted my cat’s nap.) The look on the Fox Sisters’ faces was priceless.
Nice isn’t a word I would associate with Phil. It’s rare that we see a full smile on his face. Phil Mitchell being nice? Never! But he continued with his story hoping it would charm the Fox Sisters… It didn’t work…Continue reading
