David 04 Feb 2010 As I worried about the Alarming Lump I watched: CSI New Orc Y'know, it's a good thing that I tend to miss the first five to ten minutes when I watch this live. That way I don't have to hear that lame pseudo-witticism over the corpse. While nobody does it as irritatingly as Horatio, it still puts me in a bad mood going into the show when I hear it. Rosemary and Thyme The two gardeners are used as part of a scheme to obscure the true time of death, taking advantage of the fact that they never met the victim in life, and therefore could be fooled if someone else claimed to be him and then jumped into the river in front of them. It's a rather clever scheme only flawed by the fact that the real body is way too far down stream when found. Waking the Dead Dead neo-nazi shows up mummified in the air conditioning duct of a car park. One difference I notice between British and American programming is that British shows, when they depict politics, tend to portray them as far more apocalyptic than they really are, with the country teetering on the edge of catastrophe. The Americans on the other hand tend to be more conspiratorial, with the nation in good shape, but profoundly corrupt behind the scenes. Republic of Doyle Doyle and his father work what seems to be a simple domestic case and find out the subject's real secret is uvf qrnyvatf jvgu naq snyyvat bhg jvgu gur ehzehaaref bs Fg Cvreer naq Zvdhryba. Now that's a plotline that makes the most of the Newfoundland setting for the series. Meanwhile the female constable gets pissy when she decides that Doyle's staring at her breasts is insincere and he's really after her information. And Doyle harasses his ex-wife and her new boyfriend. That's an unpleasant element of Doyle's personality. Still, maybe he's got past it by the end of the show. What did you watch?
