Hello, let me introduce myself.
I'm Italian and I've always loved British programmes, comedy and sitcom. When I was a young girl (in the 70s) we used to have quite a few British programmes on Italian television (Father Dear Father, Man About the House, Doctors on the Go) plus other series like Poldark and Brideshead Revisited (after watching Brideshead Revisited I decided to study English and visit U.K.), so I can say it changed my life in some way.
I remember that, back in the 70s and 80s, I used to like British programmes a lot more than American ones. Unfortunately, starting from mid-80s we haven't had any British comedy in Italy at all (the only programmes shown are "Detective Frost" and "Barnaby" - go figure!).
In the 90s my English friends made me know me know programmes like "The Fast Show", "Alan Partridge", "The Young Ones" and "Only Fools and Horses".
Now I've subscribed to Amazon and watched the first episode of "Fleabag" ... it left me a bit like this puzzled.
Well, that's all for now. Thanks for your attention.
