Hi everyone :)
I've made some very simple easy text icons of The Good Life and there are a couple of extra Margo ones in there :)
They're mostly from the first two episodes of season one with one or two of my favourite moments thrown in. I plan to do more later but for now, click >here< to see 53 icons of The Good Life!

[ mood | curious ]

Yes that's it a burning question and someone please help. Here it is:
Which is the episode which Margo and Tom neally kiss and now thinking about it which is the ep where Margo gets drunk? I know I've seen it but the name has gone completely from my mind and where it falls within the series

Lots of bothersome love x

The Good Life icons [15 Oct 2007|11:50pm]

I've drawn a silly set of cartoon icons based on The Good Life. Here's a self-sufficiently Surbitonian sample:

Eight more icons can be found at my journal. Help yourself if you want them!

Hi, I'm poshfrock

I too am a fan of Margo.  I have been since I first saw The Good Life back in the 1970s when I was a child!  I always wondered if others admired her character as much as I did.  I just read an online interview with Penelope Keith and she thinks that we shouldn't intellectualise the character (Margo) as she really was just a part that Penelope played??  I felt a bit sad about that because I would have loved to know more about Margo - what made her tick?

I am currently watching the DVDs and loving every moment.  I also have a book titled 'A Celebration of the Good Life' by Richard Webber which I occasionally read and of course my favourite chapter is the one about Penelope Keith and Margo....here are a couple of quotes from that book:

from Julian Mitchell, Radio Times, 1977:

"...as viewers, we don't just laugh at Margo and her pretensions, we admire her - and more deeply than perhaps we know".

and from the writer, Bob Larbey:

"On the surface there were so many things about Margo not to like.  She was a huge snob, ultra-fastidious, quick-tempered and politically just to the left of Adolf Hitler.  But we wanted her to be liked in spite of all this.  So we inserted vulnerability, and how well Penny portrayed it.  Beneath Margo's iron facade was a woman who was a loyal, if critical, friend, and one who was painfully aware that she was the butt of many jokes that she didn't even understand!"

Just thought I'd post this bit for a live-action view of Margo in full form.

How I love her. I'd BE her if I could.

Favorite Margo line: upon taking the phone forcibly from Jerry "Be QUIET!"

Quote Of The Day [20 Jun 2007|04:06pm]

Jerry: Look, I've just cut my finger clipping your blasted hedge.
Margo: Don't swear, Jerry. And don't bleed in the sink, I've just cleaned it.

Check out BBCTheGoodLife on YouTube.

An absolute goldmine! A few in there that even I haven't seen for a long time.

Quote of The Day:

"That's the last time I play the tart for you, Jerry!"

This comes on the eve of me discovering I have recently received the gift from the Digital Cable God's of a Public Broadcasting Station that carries The Good Life! It's not as if I didn't have my very capable DVD's but it's a pleasure to be able to see it on TV every weekend! Tonight's delight was The Thing In The Basement, so I'm in a very effluence-digestory kind of mood XDDD

BTW: If anyone catching this on their Friend's List would like me to cap something for them/made a scene into an icon I could do that... My other question was, would it be a good idea if after posting a batch of whatever I've made here if I posted the actual screen caps for people to use? Any wanting/need for those?

It's too quiet here. I've just been watching some of the episodes idly, while I'm wrapping Christmas presents, and I think that it's time to start up a Margo Quote of the Day. I'll start with my favorite:

From The Last Posh Frock - "BE QUIET! I don't care if the auto parts come from Mars, you go get them! No you may NOT 'tinkle me back'!"

Good Life Icons, As Promised [01 Oct 2006|12:33am]

So, the last set I posted looked fine when I was on my old desktop computer but since I have aquired my shiny, new laptop I have found a major flaw; they looked nothing like I intended because the colour/darkness of the monitor on my old comp. did not translate well to other people's resolutions *facepalm*. Since then I have actually screen-capped my own Good Life episodes (Yay! I've only done Season 4, so I have plenty more to do in time. Sadly no Windbreak War in this set...) and made some icons that I hope will showcase my talents MUCH better ;)

Therefore, if you have a specific scene you'd like capped and iconned I could probably do that for you (*cough* in the next six months*cough*).

Alrighty, so these are the labours of my love over the past week or so. Do use them. If you ever find a Good Neighbors screencapture that you'd like altered & made into something more useful, leave the request and linkage here. I'll see what I can do ^_____^. Until then, enjoy.

Just a few pics of Margo and the rest of the cast. No real reason, just for the hell of it. ^_^

Do I look like the kind of person who drinks milk stout?Collapse )
