Alibi Michael Kitchen International Day of Happiness


No time like the vernal equinox to watch all the characters in Alibi spring into action!

Greg tries to stop Marcey from revealing all, but he’s foiled by Danny. Why does Danny have Greg’s car key, though?

“Brookie” laughs at Foyle’s picks for the football polls, but true to form, it’s Foyle who will have the last laugh.

The random system may not be a bad approach to choosing a March Madness bracket this year.

Circles, π, Fifty Ships, and Michael Kitchen — boundless in their beauty and perfection.

Foyle's War: Fifty Ships: Michael Kitchen holding synchromesh gear

On this Shakespeare Sunday and UK Mother’s Day…

And all my mother came into mine eyes. And gave me up to tears. – Henry V

Steven Vey needs a hug and gets a hug from the only person to whom he can disclose the entire sordid truth about the recent events in his life.

Thank you…
to Acorn Media for including subtitles and all scenes in the new release,
and to my local library for purchasing the DVD.

I hold it fit that we shake hands and part:
You, as your business and desire shall point you, —
For every man has business and desire,
Such as it is; – Hamlet

Foyle gazing, as only Michael Kitchen can, at the honorable young man who may be his son.

Sentimental Saturday.

Replying to a Data Lounge query on cozy British murder mysteries, one forum member wrote:

…an interesting lesson on writing and showrunning. Foyle’s War should work outside of the premise. Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks are both good actors and their characters were interesting. Yet once WW2 was taken out of the equation, the story wasn’t interesting anymore. I think part of it was that having Weeks’ character marry put a wedge in the boss/employee relationship and the show just fell to pieces after that. Thank goodness they always kept the relationship as father/daughter. If they had Weeks have romantic feelings for Foyle, it would have ruined the entire show including the episodes already broadcast.

Windy today. The winds of change?

Evasive responses to be followed later by resignation from his post.

An all too familiar story out of Washington these days, the latest involving “one of these PR types”.

If you prick us do we not bleed?
If you tickle us do we not laugh?
If you poison us do we not die?
And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?

The Merchant of Venice

Peter Blythe’s characters really should avoid fraternizing with Michael Kitchen’s characters. Grp Cpt. Smythe kept his distance and walked away unscathed but woe to Chris Bouch and Kenneth Lawrence.

Poking fun at a cliché with Michael Kitchen at his deadpan best.
