    Default Stephen Fry in USA

    Anyone else been watching this. On the one hand I have been loving this programme whilst at the same time thinking to myself 'ffs I must be getting old'.

    Yeh it's great, he pretty much shares my own views about America and Americans (gentle admiration at the same time as appreciating their downsides) we tour there often and I'm still collecting states (up to 20 now, hoping to pick up another 5 or 6 in the Spring)

    He's from 'our' generation, it's not suprising we identify with him.

    .

    And presumably once you have collected them you are then going to bore every poor barsteward that you meet between then and when you die.

    Nope, I rarely talk about it, since most people are on a crusade against Americans/Microsoft/McDonalds/OtherNamlessEvil. It's almost as embarassing to say you like the US these days as to admit you're a Christian or a terrorist or something.

    The Jock-straps have always held a morbid fascination with the Septics, must be an ancestral Celt thing I suppose.

    I only caught a bit of the last one, but did enjoy watching him squirm whilst talking to the madam and her employee at the licensed brothel in Nevada.

    Stephen Fry is always good value, I really enjoy QI too.

    Maybe its cos I'm >40, and am allergic to reality TV, soaps and talent shows, but I hardly switch the darn thing on these days and in doing so miss little gems like Stephen Fry in America.

    He's an intelligent, articulate & interesting chap is Mr Fry.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.
