Tough choice on the TV tonight.
Olympic Ping Pong on SBS or the games of the 28th Pride and Prejudice on ABC.
Think P&P might just win out over the PP.
But then Miss Boynton could always venture out into the carport for a hit herself, if she can muster up a partner.
Things have been a bit quiet on the whiff whaff front since the Regiment decamped.
Comments: P and P
Won't be watching P&P meself, I wouldn't want to risk missing one gripping minute of the last 3495 hours of the disco beach volley ball.

i HATE Beach volley Ball with a Prejudice.
But then I guess I'm not the target audience.
When Ch7 delayed Roy and HG for this silly beach pastime, they lost the plot.Again.
More Darcy Watch for me.

There's a target audience?!?!
(Pulls himself up to his maximum H.G. decibels and shouts ... TRAVESTY!!!!!!)
It IS a nonsense ... and not a very good nonsense at that.
Bring back rounders! In bathing costumes ... with modesty panels.

Pride & Prejudice was a definite for me, poor Jamin-kun went upstairs to bed because he couldnt handle the excitement I displayed at seeing Mr. Darcy.

The Men's Final was a real batbiter.

the women's beach volleyball is evidence of all that's wrong with today's society... a greedy obsession for everything bared, when the shorts and knee-high socks of traditional volleyball e.g. russia vs cuba is infinitely better pervin... (incidentally, russia started ill-omened, with a player called gamova, and were never going to win)

Yes, Crayon, and it was that vintage episode that sent all the hearts a flutter where Darcy takes a plunge. A Regency Triathalon. Equestrian, Swimming and Brooding.
So I missed the Men's Final.
And Sedge and Nardo - I endorse your sentiments entirely. Sporting attire should be more cumbersome. Pervin should be strictly heritage.
An edwardian flash of ankle or knee.
