My question is whether this expression, "very droll" ,common in nowadays' British daily life? (if I use this expression, will people think I'm weird?)
A: @zinzin: I would think they belong to another era. Is this set in thatcher era? Well, I guess it might be a mockery expression, I dunno why it conveys that to me. Anyhow, I wouldn't think you are a weirdo, it's like saying far out, which means cool as well, but basically used in the 60's. I love that expression. Okay I'm rambling hahaha

Orange is the new black
Sense8
The walking dead
Fear the walking dead
