"Back in Time" Series

March 21st, 2017 at 09:16 pm

One of my absolute favorite tv series is Back in Time... where they send a family "back in time" to cook and eat and live like another era. The first series had them going back to the 40s and then moving forward to the 90s with each day being a year. They even transformed their house!

It's a great show to watch with kids, too - entertaining but also educational. F wondered at how I survived the 70s (which I thought was the perfect time to be a kid!)

I can't believe we missed Farther Back in Time! Need to catch up fast since the final episode expires in 12 days.

Frugality (or lack of frugality which in this case often means convenience) is a major theme, or at least an undercurrent.

Speaking of that, tonight's dinner: roast potatoes and a big salad (big salad, as opposed to our regular dinner salad, has whatever is on hand, but tonight will have grated carrot, cucumbers, cut up turkey, sunflower seeds, radishes, homemade dressing).

    I loved watching these! I think I should memorialize leftover Tuesdays. Tonight we're all having little bits of leftovers--chili, pasta, all the stuff in the fridge.

    Where do you see these series? I see they are not available on Xfinity on Demand.

    Never heard of it. How do you watch it?

    We have witopia which allows us to watch tv on our computers as if we are in the UK... we watch this particular series on the BBC's iplayer. (We don't have cable or regular television at all, so everything we watch is on our computers).
