Hello everyone!

I'm a long time fan, having watched AYBS since 1992--right about the time that Mrs. Slocombe will get to use a different color of blotting paper. Back in the late 90s, I was very active in a now defunct AYBS message board called the Canteen... any other refugees here?

I had not thought about the show in ages, but decided to watch through the DVDs with my fiancée, and found my interest had been rekindled. And lo and behold, there are still fan communities out there centered around this amazing show.

Anyway, I look forward to meeting all of you!
