    Bet you are glad we don't get the weather they experienced in Missouri :Eeek:
    Just as well that they build strong storm shelters under their houses :Smile:

    Billy Connolly Route 66

    Didn't want to miss this programme! Billy Connolly is fantastic in all these "World Tour" type programmes, (IMO!). Thoroughly enjoyed it and looking forward to the rest of the series:thumb:
    Love the Big Yin!

    Could you catch it on the ITV equivalent of the BBC iPlayer?

    Can't remember what it's called, might be the ITV Player, have a look on the ITV webpage and you'll find it there.:thumb:

    Just a shame it's on ITV, those sofa adverts are crap. :Sad:

    We did Route66 through Arizona so looking forward to seeing when he gets there.

    Wonder if he IS going to drive it all or climb on board the RV that will no doubt be following him, just have the odd shot of him in the rain/tornado. :Rofl1:

    We intend to follow his footsteps next spring from Chicago so to series will be a good insight to what to expect.
    This episode was especially interesting as my son lives in Chicago and his apartment was on screen a number of times. I am familiar with all the sights he visited including the glass viewing platform and the speakeasy.
    I hadn’t realised there was an Amish community so close I will make a point of visiting them, I have seen them around Chicago I think there restrictions still allow them to travel on trains so they tend not to bring their horse and carriage into town.
    Looking forward to next week.
