I love all of it. Giles, The Good Life, Sue, Giles, chickens, Giles, the comedy, Giles, the clothes.

Er, Giles.

It is funny, love the excerpts from Tom and Barbara's original Good Life.

MollieO Mon 08-Nov-10 21:29:34

You even like the Giles who is scared of chickens? <<wimpy man>>

Portofino Mon 08-Nov-10 21:31:41

I am in love with Giles. And Sue for that matter.

BellaBearisWideAwake Mon 08-Nov-10 21:38:57

it is making me laugh grin

Chickens are fierce.

Jazzicatz Mon 08-Nov-10 21:40:00

Giles is rather lovely!

SuePurblybilt Mon 08-Nov-10 21:41:13

Chickens are not fierce. Geese are fierce.

I am watching and cringing a bit as I spent a good few years livin' the dream of self sufficiency, John Seymour bible and all. So half of me is shouting at their crapness and half is flinching in embarassment at the memories of my own mistakes.

Giles is nice, as it happens.

GIles is just ......mmmmm...I wish I was Sue

FellatioNelson Mon 08-Nov-10 21:43:52

I really heart Giles. And Sue for that matter. I haven't seen this but I must now. I'll sky plus it.

Giles Coren is a bit of a twat, but very entertaining.

I don't want him to be my best friend, but I do want him to get a friend of a friend who I see at parties occassionally (preferably after I've had a drink of two)

I wonder if he self-googles...

If he's scared of chickens because they make unexpected noise and might poo, how is he goin to cope with a baby?

SuePurblybilt Mon 08-Nov-10 21:44:23

It's the shirt. Lord knows I'm a sucker for a farmer but I could even fancy the Ex again in one of those shirts. Thank goodness I sent them all to Oxfam....

ShowOfHands Mon 08-Nov-10 21:46:21

Our chickens were mean. They used to beat up the cats.

Portofino Mon 08-Nov-10 21:46:41

Sue just doesn't appreciate Giles' finer <<ahem>> points - not in the same way as I would anyhow grin

MollieO Mon 08-Nov-10 21:47:22

I can't imagine them having a baby! I thought Sue was gay?

SuePurblybilt Mon 08-Nov-10 21:47:58

You have to wrangle them right SoH. Be the Master. Chicken Master.

Mine fight with the rabbit but ignore the squirrel.

Giles is having a baby with his real-life wife Mollie!

SuePurblybilt Mon 08-Nov-10 21:51:19

Getting a bit cross with their planting out of plug plants and obviously not having planted 90% of the garden tho. I was hoping to be fooled into believing it was real.

MollieO Mon 08-Nov-10 21:52:02

Not a Giles fan so generally clueless about his RL! Having said that I'm surprised he isn't gay, or is he?

TrillianAstra Mon 08-Nov-10 21:53:29

I was pleased that Sue said 'I can't actually be expected to live with Giles' so they were just learning some skills not pretending that they would be living together for a whole summer.

MollieO Mon 08-Nov-10 21:55:21

I love the clothes!

TrillianAstra Mon 08-Nov-10 21:55:40

Good cleavage in the coral dress!
