Mr. Bean (Episode #101)

KQED Plus: Wed, Sep 19, 2012 -- 10:30 PM

The creation of Rowan Atkinson, this is a series of mostly silent misadventures and non-stop visual gags as the clueless nerd struggles to do things others do with ease, such as drive, sunbathe, visit the dentist, or eat in a restaurant. In this episode, Mr. Bean misplaces his trousers at the laundromat and finds himself in a real bind trying to retrieve them. That problem solved, he goes to the Krazy Golf Course, but not being allowed to tough the ball proves a great challenge.

Hair By Mr. Bean of London (Episode #114)

KQED Plus: Wed, Sep 5, 2012 -- 10:30 PM

When Mr. Bean has to wait a few minutes for the hairdresser who's called away by the telephone, he starts playing barber, so three consecutive customers have their hair done by him, but his inverse Midas touch strikes again: woe their hair and the real hairdresser they complain to! Next he goes to a pet show, starting off by cheating at a dexterity game by unplugging the fault-detection and next deciding to play 'hit the headmaster' not just with the provided wet sponges, but with anything not too heavy for him to lift; then he enters his teddy-bear for the obedience test (meant for kids' dogs). In the train station he stops at nothing to get on without a ticket, and succeeds as a crawling sack of post - but on which train is he carried?
