No, CG I didn't see the show. I do remember that he hung himself, (coward) but I still wished he had lived so the other inmates could have some self-induced entertainment.

I want to sing the praises of a new series that we think is remarkable and we highly recommend it for many reasons. We have watched several episodes so far and each one has been just so well done I had to share it with all of you.

Breaking Borders is on the Travel channel weekly.

Breaking Borders : Mariana Van Zeller, Michael Voltaggio : TravelChannel.com

Award-winning journalist Mariana van Zeller and acclaimed chef Michael Voltaggio are our hosts, our eyes and our ears as they explore Jerusalem, Northern Ireland, Egypt, Cuba, the US-Mexico border, Cyprus and countless other locations. The goal is not to try to solve the conflicts and achieve world peace, but just to get a conversation started, at the dinner table, around the questions “What if”” and “What would it take for these 2 sides to come together and have peace?” At the end of each episode, Mariana and Michael host a dinner, prepared by Michael, where 2 opposing sides of a conflict come together to break bread. -

I know you will all enjoy it as much as we do. It's television at it's very best.

Thanks for mentioning it, Kayelle. Sounds very interesting. I just set my DVD to record it.

Let me know what you think of it GG. I was especially thinking that you and your DH would really enjoy it. We often talk about the episode for days later. The bonus is the wonderful meal that's created at the end, with the insightful conversation.

Let's Talk TV

I think you're right, Charlie. It wasn't on after Survivor last night. There was 2 hours of CSI: Cyber instead.

I haven't watched television since the aerial died a year last Christmas. A couple of weeks ago I had new loft insulation installed and the nice man informed me that the aerial cable had been chewed through (those bl**dy field mice get everywhere!) but he'd spliced and repaired it for me. I tried to be grateful.

Since then I've been watching TV again. It's worse than it was before. 41 channels and everyone worse than the last. Apart from one or two new episodes of Barefoot Contessa broadcast on Food Network at stupid times for anyone who has a life, I feel as though it's "Groundhog Day"!!!

I know. Any decent cooking show is when I am at work. And at night it is total nonsense.

I've been looking forward to this 10 hr. series on the History channel, Texas Rising. It starts tomorrow night. Good cast of characters, and an interesting part of history. I DVR'ed it.
