And now for something completely different--and funny (if you like Japanese)

So, I'm talking to my Japanese friend about Patrick McGoohan's death because her husband, like my husband, is a big Prisoner fan, and I mention that PM was in some of the Colombo films of the 70's and she says she loved those. So, I'm trying to imagine Peter Falk speaking in Japanese. And we talk about more shows that crossed the ocean and she tells me that she saw Mr. Ed as a child--subbed in Japanese.

And I say: Ed-u San?
And then I think about the show for a moment and say: Actually it should have been Ed-u Sensai or at least Ed-u Sempai.

Of all the shows to take over...I wonder how close the translations were--HA!
