Anyone else watched this? It's into the 2nd series, it's a French comedy with English subtitles set in a Government department in the early 60s and worth a look for the beautiful set designs. Some lovely suits as well.


Thanks for the heads up ... took the month's trial on Netflix so I could watch this and am really enjoying it, I'm currently half way through the first series (I'm loving the running gag about Merlaux's suit ;) )

Ian - Netflix now has all nine series of Archer as well!  Whataguy!!  He invented the black roll neck sweater! And Pammy's a girl that you'd want on your side  ;)

DANGER ZONE!!!

Dorset - Komedia - Dorset on the Friday: The music at Komedia was great
Non-league football +Volks in the afternoon - Sea Sidewinder - Modesty on the Saturday: MODesty was the place to be!  8) Top music, fresh suits
Hard shopping  :) + Volks (and we were soaked) Truth + Secret Affair at Old Market - Dorset.on the (stormy) Sunday. Shame we were late, we listened to the last 3 tunes of the gig of The Truth  :( Secret Affair were good and Ian Paige was on good voice

Thank you for your kind words, good sir, glad you enjoyed it ! :)

Sounds like a top night mate. As noted in my other post I was at Sea-Sidewinder but yours sounds like one I'd consider splitting time with next year. Fair play for your Smart Dress Code too. Glad you stood by your guns fella. Lucas is an absolute class act who I have a lot of time for and his partner Katie too. Nice one.

So many friends involved that I just had to pop in for the end of Sea-SideWinder when Modesty finished at 2 :)

Oh and I couldn't agree more about Lucas and Katie, BTW :)

Modesty Saturday - Where to start ?
OK let's get the downside out of the way first, I can only apologise for the queues for the bar & delays getting served, and thank you all for your patience. In some ways we were a victim of our own success with the increased attendance, combined with bottled drinks being decanted into plastic glasses because people being allowed to take their drinks outside. I will be meeting with the venue management to try & find a solution.
Other than that ..... what a great night and I'd like to personally thank everyone that came to drink, dance & be merry
It was a pleasure and a privilege to play tunes to such a smart, sussed crowd alongside my old mate and partner in crime Colin Baldock, together with brilliant guest DJs (and friends) Lucas Gomersall, Mike Warburton, Robert Burr and Vinny Baker, who all kept the floor packed with blinding sets.
A big thank you. also to the staff & management of Al Duomo Italian Restaurant and to Rocking Doug for his stirling work on the door.
Last year some people said we were mad to try and do a smart dress only event during the Brighton August Bank Holiday weekend, but we proved them wrong then, and this year we smashed it again
Once more thank you again to EACH & EVERY ONE OF YOU that came and made this the brilliant night that it was,
(Who knows? We might just have to do it again next year)
All the best
Ian B
