Best known to American audiences as the loveable but lazy Onslow on the Britcom "Keeping Up Appearances",Geoffrey Hughes has died from prostate cancer at age 68. He was in a number of other programs including the very popular "Coronation Street".

 Bluesad R.I.P. Geoffrey Hughes. Onslow often stole the show on "Keeping Up Appearances" whenever he appears and was a great foil of sorts for Hyacinth. Never knew he was on "Coronation Street" too which has become a guilty pleasure favourite of mine these days.

I love the bit where Daisy says to Onslow: "You practically tore my dress of my body...!"  And Onslow replies:  "I tore your dress off?  You musta been on fire!" 
Good night GEOFFREY, as long as people watch "Keeping Up Appearances" they will be laughing at your wonderful performances. 

If you want to view paradise . . . simply look around and view it!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
