The subject line is one reason why you should watch Upstart Crow. :)

For those unfamiliar, it's a new sitcom by Ben Elton, and a bit like Blackadder but with Shakespeare, and the wit is less biting and more cozy. But then Shakespeare (played by David Mitchell ♥) is a much nicer person than Blackadder.

One of the things I like the most is that it doesn't just centre on his life in London - his family in Stratford are well represented, as can be seen in this little teaser trailer:

And every episode ends with Shakespeare and his wife, in front of the hearth, with a pipe each, reflecting. Honestly, it's just so delightful!
