I don't know what is more surprising - that these aired in the States or that people over there like them...
I have to admit that I don't understand the appeal of Are You Being Served
. It seemed that the producers found any excuse they could find to create some sort of a fashion show with the main characters. With the exception of maybe Miss Brahms(?) (some of the names escape me: Lucas, Mrs. Slocumbe, Captain Peacock?), I didn't find too pleasant of a sight.
