Magnificent photo. So-so spelling.



Grieving for the EPA and the planet. ****

Celebrating this Chinese New Year with one of the few instances Michael Kitchen has acted with a dog:

Mobile is a show so full of unpleasantness that not even a puppy could lighten the mood.

(I much prefer this white fluffball to the one that won Best in Show at Westminster this week.)

A time when murder investigations rarely involved a multitude of bullets (and victims) at the crime scene.

Henry Kent’s gallantry in the bedtime scene from Falling is akin to many displays of love on Valentine’s Day. Superficial, but romantic nonetheless.

On Amazon ‘golden eagle’ writes:

I have a difficult time imagining the reticent Foyle voluntarily using the word “ravish”. Henry Kent, on the other hand, proffers the word easily, guilefully.

Another difference between Foyle and Kent — the former wears pj’s to bed.

Saddened to learn that John Mahoney has left us. Just four years ago, he was filming his guest appearance on Foyle’s War. The one exchange he shared with Michael Kitchen in High Castle was wordless:

Seems Mr. Mahoney cherished his privacy also, turning down almost all publicity. “I would rather walk across broken glass,” he told Rick Kogan of the Chicago Tribune. Yet unlike MK, JM sat down for some lengthy interviews over the years and showed himself to be a wonderfully engaging, articulate man. Wish we could see that side of MK as well.

Lies, lies, and more lies. With Foyle upholding the law, Michael Turner pays the price for his treachery. Who’s holding the Trump administration and the GOP accountable to the truth? Neither entity shows much respect for the rule of law.

DCI Jane Tennison/Helen Mirren: Don’t call me “ma’am”. I’m not the bloody queen.

DCS Christopher Foyle/Michael Kitchen: Well, unfortunately, the facts appear to suggest otherwise.


Couldn’t resist after reading Frank Bruni’s New York Times op-ed,
Sarah Huckabee Sanders Makes the Heart Grow Fonder:

…she dwells without evident compunction in a gaudier fairyland of grander fictions. There’s no panic. No squeak. Just that repulsed expression, as if a foul odor had wafted in and she knew – just knew – that the culprit was CNN. …Sure, every administration indulges in self-serving narratives and laughable spin. But this administration takes both to perverse summits, and Sanders is its mountaineer extraordinaire.

I wonder if the green color was chosen as an intentional reference to Scarlett O’Hara.
