It’s really all gone crime around here. After reading one Daisy Dalrymple book I somehow ended up taking another off the shelf when I put that one back. I still like the time before they get married the best. And as much as I like Sakari, I miss Lucy.
I’m still watching Line of Duty – I’m up to series 4. But I have a big problem with it: ergonomics. They all have their monitors so low down/chairs so high up that they’re all leaning over to look at stuff on the screen or read documents laid out on their desk. They really need someone to go in there and sort them out.
I’m also still watching The Bill. It’s alternately good and frustrating. It really is better when it’s an hour long, but some of the half hours are really good and some are a bit nothing. The trouble is, even when they’re good, is that they’re determined to have a B story. They’re better off devoting the whole time to one story, but the biggest problem with the B story is that because the episodes are so short the B stories only get about three scenes. Which isn’t long enough for them to be anything interesting. They either need to be a whole story or not in there at all.
