Also in Season 4 Episode 10, Madge is seen holding up a sign in the window that says, "Ban Blood Sports". The room she is in does not fit with the layout of the house. When Mike Barbosa enters the house, he enters the room from Madge's right. The sign was held to the left of the house entrance. Besides, the fact is the windows are of two different styles between where the living room is situated from the outside, and the view from the inside. See more »
"As Times Goes By" is brilliantly written, directed, and--especially-- acted. What a marvelous treat to see the fascinating Judi Dench week after week. She and Geoffrey Palmer have incredible chemistry together. There are many laugh-out-loud laughs, as well as serious moments too. The final scene in the second episode is perfection. The series would be have been well-advised to end about two seasons before it did, but even these episodes are head-and-shoulders above most of today's television. All in all, a remarkable achievement sustained, for the most part, over nine seasons. Bravo, all concerned! Brava, brava, Judi!
