I am lamenting having seen the last episodes of two BBC serials (Netflix streaming): one, a fave of Addie I think she said, is Last Tango in Halifax, which I avoided starting because it sounded sappy. It wasn't. Two, about a woman police officer, starring Sarah Lancashire (who appeared as headmistress of a school in that Last Tango series), titled Happy Valley. It wasn't. But they were both good shows. I must look up this Sally Wainwright, who was responsible for both shows, writing & direction, I think.

You are right. We here on this side of the pond will not get it until Jan. '15. Thanks for being considerate.

I made a big pan of baked mac and cheese today along with a smaller one for Spike. I guess the Food Police will come and slap me upside of my head with a wet piece of bread. My bad!

I hate being "spoiled" so I try my best not to be a spoiler myself Addie.

I hate when someone tells me all about the movie they saw, the TV show or a book they have read. And they keep droning on and on, word for word, and then tell you how it ends. Just tell me if it was good or bad so I can save my money for only the good stuff.

I really apologized to MC about letting the cat out of the bag from the last season of Person of Interest. Frankly I wasn't aware that American shows are a season behind in the UK. My bad, and I won't do it again. Returning to my corner.

i'm fookin amazed that "outlander" isn't a bigger deal with the ladies here.

it's an adventure story set in 18th century scotland with a woman as both the protagonist and narrator of the story.

in other words, the heroine writes the story. with drams of scotch, good looking men in both kilts and uniform, more scotch, acts of chivalry from both sides at the whim of the "lass" (historically horriffic) and more scotch before the men fight over her. it's a freakin' romance novel incarnate.


lol.

but it is pretty cool, and well done. along the production quality of "game of thrones".
