Although we know of her, neither Himself nor I had read any books when we first started watching. Himself has since read one further into her writings than these take place right now. But we are enjoying the shows, alternating between *gasp* and hysterical laughing during each episode. Warning, though, if you have a weak stomach: the props and makeup departments are great! Very graphic, but great. Let's just say that having done little theatre, and the fact that nearly every little theatre thinks that "their" stage blood is spot-on, I have a LOT of "evidence" to compare Olde Towne Hall Theatre's to.

I have two episodes of Longmire to go -- what will I do then without my Wyoming Sheriff of few words?

I'll have to check on Murdoch Mysteries; already have Midsomer Murders in my Netflix streaming queue for visits to the English countryside.

Another vote for American Crime.

I can have my next door neighbor visit, he's a Wyoming Sheriff... I know the Chief of Police, too, she lives a block away.

Vitauta and Tinlizzie...I'm so glad to see other American Crime fans here. I wanted to talk about episodes from last season, but I didn't think anyone else here watched it.

This season is focusing on an even more controversial subject than last time. Not necessarily a feel good series, but the writing, acting, and camera/sound editing is superb, IMO.

No doubt the neighborhood will be glad to have the law keeping an eye on those two new people.

A "she" Police Chief. Cool.

She has pink grips on her pistol. Very nice and really cares about the community.

I sometimes watch the PBS cooking shows on Saturdays. They have some good ones. Today I caught a new cooking series called "Project Smoke." Very well presented and entertaining as well as informative.
3 episodes so far, I only caught the most recent one. He cold smoked some steaks. Ice in a tray with a rack on top with the steaks on them. He set it on the far side of the coals, and on the hot side he threw in a few handfuls of hay, closed the lid and let the hay smoke the meat. In a few minutes, the steaks were smoked but still cold! Then he raked the coals and grilled them. What a great idea! I'd have to go out looking for some hay, of course.
