    Just set the machine to record the series. I don’t remember my contribution though.

    There it is, snugly in between the 2 halves of Coro, but best of all, it is up against East Enders and the wife is intrigued enough to agree to miss those awful Cockneys shouting at each other. :lol:

    Just hope that she finds it interesting enough to want to watch the series. :D

    Didn’t think it was too bad ……… there are another 11 episodes to go, though!

    Geoffrey Palmer is absolutely the right voice-over! :)

    House prices, did I hear right?
    130,000 though I didn’t hear whether that was pounds or euros, still in 2003 I think that would have bought you a very small habitable town house or a ruin?

    Wow I saw the rear of my car.

    Look forward to the episodes with Ray and Sophie. Great dry sense of humour.

    I stood on my terrace watching filming will I be in the background?

    I thought it was mediocre even with Mr Palmer. I dont think I will bother again. :!:

    I missed out on Eastenders – not too bothered about that, and I thought it was interesting enough to do so – I thought the filming of scenery, buildings etc was beautiful. MOH said it will encourage more of a Brit invasion. It’s nice to see other areas (although we are not that far away)It’s a good job it’s in between Corries though – otherwise it wouldn’t have been on! :lol: I am looking forward to further episodes!

    Most of the overhead scenery shots were no where near the featured couples
    and house prices in these villages are three times at least what was quoted..
    Still it was good to see people making a go of it …Interesting …

    Boring Boring Boring. Watched it hoping for a bit of a laugh, but it failed even on that score. Must admit those fish and chips looked nice though

    Watched it out of curiosity although having watched similar themed past progs should have known better. The farmer and his family and the couple who started a fish and chips wagon seem to be fairly normal. Wouldn’t it be refreshing if those who made the programs dealt with real life, by exploring the difficulties people had or are having, rather than that which they aspire to live in through the wardbrobe. I enjoyed some aspects of no going back with the couple from Leeds who went to live in Italy, by all accounts they are still there http://www.casadelsole.co.uk/# the difficulties this couple encountered with trying to start a new life which included healthcare, tax etc which resonates with most of us. Not sure what this program is trying to say at the moment.

    Was it 9 euro’s for fish and chips :shock::shock:

    Reminds me of the series about the Lakes on earlier in the year. Cheap TV.

    Nice scenery – I found the two older couples irritating. I have to admit that I would sound smug if I were ever interviewed about my decision to live in France, as it has been a wholly successful move for me. However, I had only myself to consider, a guaranteed pension income, reasonable French, and no need to find a job or run a business.
    Perhaps the future programmes will explore some of the difficulties people have encountered.


    I will be secure in the grave - now I want adventure.
