Thank you very much. I'm sure there are so many more out there I haven't seen(especially on UK television). I'm also sure there's quite a few more television shows... in fact one more comes to mind. Remember that show "Dark Justice"? In season 1 the episode titled "Diplomatic Immunity" featured a really hot blonde who stripped off her entire outfit to reveal black S and S. In the same scene she also almost kicked a guys ass while wearing the outfit! Only thing is it's a pretty difficult show to find. There were also quite a few other episodes in the same series that had S and S.

Also, I HIGHLY recommend that Nip/Tuck episode I mentioned. The scene in question is pretty steamy.

EDIT: I got the episode wrong, I am very sorry, here is the right one for sure(I know because I just watched it on DVD.

Another sighting on the gorgeous Kim Cattrall:
Sex and the city season 4: "Just Say yes"
Details of scene: Samantha(Kim Catrall) is on a
private plane with her new boyfriend and as they
lay on the couch Samantha's skirt comes off to
reveal a suspender belt and flesh-toned stockings.

There were sightings in nearly every episode of 'Allo Allo. I liked the one called sausage in the wardrobe.

You're very right. I believe the first or second episode the guy who looks like
a young version of Toht from Raiders of the lost ark asked the blonde woman to
tend to her crooked stocking seams. Cheeky, but in a good way. ;)

The first season of Mad Men had stocking sightings GALORE, not the least of which was on the very talented and buxom Christina Hendricks as Jean Halloway and later on mid-season they had an office party and one of the characters chases a woman, betting on what color panties she's wearing, pulls her dress up and we see her stockings and suspenders. I know that's EXTREMELY sexist and chauvinistic especially by today's standards, but I think it's extremely sexy and erotic(if a bit creepy).

Posted 02 November 2010 - 11:19 AM

I have just sat through an episode of the book club, which might be viewed at www.abc.net.au/tv/firsttuesday, where the black welt at the top of Marieke Hardy's stockings are fully exposed. It almost completely distracted me from the comments being made on the show.

My primary reason for watching "Are you being served?" for many years was for a glimpse of stocking. I hope they bring it back to television again, as I miss those great episodes.

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) shows older B&W and color movies that show FF stockings on the ladies. Back then FF nylons were common and frequently part of the normal wardrobe in those old classic films. It is the primary reason I watch those movies and the stories in the bulk of them are quite well written too, so they are quite entertaining.

There's a weekly HBO Series going now, called: Lingerie. It's a soft-porn soap opera about lingerie models and all their boyfriend & girlfriend dramas, (with some stockings & belts - in several of the lingerie and soft-porn sex scenes, at least :rolleyes: ).

. . . . I clicked on it merely by accident. :o Almost. <_<

Regarding the L-Word, the season 3 episode "Lost Weekend". I highly recommend this scene as well. Carmen(Sarah Shahi) and Shane(Katherine Moening) near the end have a private rendezvous, and Carmen is wearing this very beautiful red dress. Shane is holding Carmen and the following exchange takes place:
Carmen(giggling): I wonder who's going to be doing the f$%#ing tonight because YOU looked pretty girly in that dress you had on.
Shane: Well...(lifts up Carmen's dress, we can see a peek of suspender belt) You look pretty girly yourself!

With that, Carmen does probably one of the most erotic and sexiest stripteases EVER.

Here's another from the series "Damages"
Season 2, episode entitled "A pretty girl in a leotard". Marcia Gay Harden appears not once, but twice in S and S in this episode.

Didn't see any stockings in Foyles War? in fact I posted recently re Honeysuckle Weeks "getting permission" to wear tights in the series, whether tights or not I don't know but the actress in the (awful) remakes of Randall and Hopkirk was usually in seams. Dervla Kirwan wore regulary in Goodnight Sweetheart, even Pat Butcher wore in early Eastenders! (seen fastening stocking to suspender) another sighting in that programme was "Terry's wife" for no reason? seen in black seams in one episode, Bet Lynch regularly wore ff's (or copies) in Coronation Street and seen as per Pat Butcher, plus seamstraightening etc and theres always Sharon Marshall!

There was a Australian TV show in the 90s I think which was very Dynasty, Dallas like. It was called Return to Eden and a few episodes of that had some scenes of ladies in stockings and suspenders. One lovely scene was of a gorgeous lady played by Peta Toppano, who slowly undressed from a leather looking dress down to her matching black underwear and stockings, stepped out of her dress in her high heels then put another dress on, so everytime you saw the actresses from the scenes in skirt suits or dresses you always assumed they had something sexy on underneath too even if they might not have.

I seam to remember when they announced that The Avengers was returning as The NEW Avengers and Joanna Lumley had got the gig she was quite prominent in the press at the time talking about her love of stockings?!?!?!

She said something about buying loads and loads of pairs for next to nothing prices in the 60's when Twiggy launched the mini-skirts and tights era!!!

Joanna Lumley, the quintessential English Rose and a confirmed adorner!!!

I remember that also. In one episode she had a long(ish) skirt on, and it was getting in the way of what she was doing, so she lifted it up and tucked it into the straps of her garter belt.

Nice clip! But if I was making an exploitation film like this,
I would go full on, blouse ripped, bra straps ripped, boobs
falling out, skirt hiked up above her butt. Close-up of suspenders
popping open... Mwah hah hah, yes I know, I'm bad.

In another sighting, there's an episode early on in Season 1 of
The united states of Tara where the title character is in her
50's housewife persona, complete with classic S and S! Name of
the episode escapes me right now, sorry.

re Avengers, once saw a clip where a "baddie" was twirling around in a swivel chair and she clearly had ff stockings on, no idea of series etc but shortish skirt so mid 1960's? always wonder when I see an "out of era" actress sighting (as in anytime when not favoured by the majority, nor playing a stripper etc) who'se idea it was/is to wear such? the director (or whatever) or the actress?

Would that sitcom have been called, 'The other 'arf', by any chance?

I LOVED that movie! Over here states-side, it was released under the name "The Final Countdown".

It's quite interesting to me to see what was then a reality-based fictional account - which now-a-days is almost common place, both in it's bad-guy action and the good-guys' response...

Oh, the stockings in it? Nice, but, yeah, ho-hum glimpse.
