I am really excited about this rebroadcast. I very much enjoyed this production when they broadcast it last year! Of course, it is on the same time as the Superbowl which isn't the kindest slot...

Thank goodness they are rebroadcasting this ! I am so looking forward to revisiting this version instead of the noise and hubub of the Superbowl.

The men at my house are totally focused on the gridiron so I just make the food etc. and then disappear to the other TV. Oh, heaven... peace, quiet and a lovely story to watch !

I don't know.
Footaball Finals or the Dashwood Sisters? Hhmmm.

There is an Australian playing in the Superbowl for the first time; Ben Graham, the Punter for the Cardinals. So I'm going to have to do the patriotic thing.

Why don't you guys watch the Superbowl too?

Nothing like, a bit of sexy Aussie.....
