    Adrian Lester - he was in Girlfriends, Primary Colors and The Day After Tomorrow...guess he went back to doing UK TV. He is very cute.

    Ive never heard of copper, & I see it was made for BBC America, I might look it out.
    For some reason I thought that Ripper Street was cancelled because I saw one of he main characters on GOT. I figured he wouldn't be on it if the show was still around.

    I like Foyles War because I'd totally do Michael Kitchen up, down and sideways.
    Is Midsomer supposed to be so funny? I mean do Brits find it hilarious like I do? It's a tremendously clever show, by both sticking it to British conventions yet lovingly embracing them at the same time - basically Midsomer is the murder capital of the world, a complete massacre, but everyone gets home in time for tea so all is well with the world. The murderers, and the detectives, have such lovely manners.

    Where is this show? I keep hearing about it but I can't find it on any US source, other than Amazon for lots of $? Has a network grabbed it yet?

    It's not played for laughs but I suppose there's some gentle humour in there. It's certainly not a gritty real life cop drama. As for the polite people, believe it or not there are still a lot of Brits like that! We decided to leave "Midsomer" when our life insurance premiums went through the roof. The murder stats were worse then South Side Chicago.

    I saw the Agatha Raisin program that was on over Xmas last night & it was (unintentionally?) hilarious!!!
    its filmed in the chilterns so you have all that lovely creamy stone buildings & greens.
    Its much better than the (dated, badly written) books are, even if I always imagined Agatha Raisin more like Penelope Keith.
    This new blond thing was brilliant though (Ashley Jensen)

    You can get Fortitude on Netflix - not streaming though!

    So ridiculous but I loved every episode. Eve bares an uncanny resemblance to my father, which freaks me out some. I loved the rapport the cast had when it was Grace, Peter, Will, Frankie and Mel. Those were good years.

    I've just discovered Death in Paradise. There's only 2 seasons on Netflix and I hope the add more. What a funny show.

    I remember Sunday marathons of EastEnders on PBS. I used to go around pretending that I had an accent.
