Next, there's Satellite City. It's about a quirky family, husband and wife and his father, who take in a border, a most unusual visiting American student, after their previous border, "English Stan" has died. Truly, you'd miss the 'flavor' if I tried to describe it. Like an exotic dish, you have to 'taste it'.
Finally, you simply have to try High Hopes. This followed and was written by the co-writer of Satellite City, Boyd Clack (who also appears in the series). There were six seasons. I have portions of seasons 4 through 6. It has never been released on DVD, but there is an online petition to try to convince the BBC to release the complete series on DVD. You can sign the petition at the following website: http://www.petitiononline.com/hhdvd/petition.html
As with Satellite City, to describe this program as a domestic sitcom would miss the entire point. It features a son, his elderly mother (who proudly and repeatedly reminisces about her work history as a stripper!) and two adolescents whom they've, sort of, adopted. Try it; you'll like it!
