Stephen Fry in America by perfectbitch on 30 October 2008 11:03pm
 
Has anyone been watching this? He is visiting all the states in a London black cab. It is watchable but Stephen seems to repress his wit although his observations are interesting. The photograph is ok too.

I have not seen anything like this. Would be interesting. As long as he makes a guest appearance on House, when he hits New Jersey.

I'm quite enjoying the series, apart from the episode when he visited that research place where they kept dead bodies.

Sting was in one of the episodes so maybe Hugh Laurie will make an appearance too!

I'm loving it. The BBC needed to be really ambitious with this though and make it 12 or 13 episodes in my opinion.

I agree - a brilliant series. It is whetting my appetite for another US trip!

I thought it funny on this week's episode, by the way, where he is in a diner which serves food based on its Germanic past, and comments on its heaviness. As he tackles his pudding, he says that he feels as if his stomach is Poland being invaded by.. and then stops himself.

Too funny for words!!

LOL! Yes, that was funny. I was interested in his visits to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and the Badlands of South Dakota as I visited all these places 9 years ago. Thought Crazy Horse would have been finished by now!

I loved the kids riding sheep. It made me laugh out loud. I also wish it could be longer.

For Mike - part of tonight's episode showed Stephen in Tucson, visiting the Old Tucson Film Studios and a place where planes go to rest (hundreds of them)!

Thanks Sue. The local nickname for where the planes are is the "Boneyard" but the guys who work there become annoyed when you call it that. I forgot the official name and would have to look it up.

On the internet,it says there are 4000 old planes in storage at Davis-Monthan Airport base,just out of Tucson.This base houses several Commands,as well as the AFMC,the Air Force Material Command's 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group(309AMARG) previously known as the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center(AMARC).Pilots are trained here and the regeneration refers to breaking up old unserviceable airplanes to sell spare parts.
