  1. TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    Would like to have seen Paths of Glory today, a century to the day that WWI ended. Inexplicably TCM is showing nothing but WWII chestnuts.

  3. ignore feature

    I looked through the FAQs but couldn't find an answer. How do I "ignore" a poster so I no longer see that person's posts?
  4. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018)

    Yes, Huisman is an attractive actor. However, I was taken out of the story by his 21st century facial scruff. This was NOT an acceptable look for a man in the 1940s. Even for a pig farmer in a remote Channel island. This movie was a pretty if hokey diversion, very slow in spots. I always like seeing Penelope Wilton.
  5. S05.E04: Colours

    What was the parallel drawn between young Thursday's army unit and the police unit? Oxford City Police goes out of existence as it becomes part of the new entity "Thames Valley" police, and a storied army unit (regiment?) is ending as well with some kind of reorganization into a more "modern" configuration?

    I didn't mean to suggest that Morse was referring to that aspect of Joan's person. You're right; that seems out of character. But I was struck by how beautiful both Morse and Joan looked in the early evening light up there.

    On the rooftop, Morse declined to join Joan at the edge for what she said was the best view. Was it a policeman's cautious avoidance of a roof edge? Or was he already enjoying his own best perspective: Joan Thursday in the foreground of the Oxford skyline?

    Loved Bright's scene in his office with the robbery cop who insulted Trewlove. Bright was magnificent in his outrage.
  9. One of my favorite parts of the wedding was the music for Meghan's procession up the aisle, just an ethereally lovely soprano voice (singing Handel I believe) with trumpet. It was an unusual choice for the bridal walk up the aisle, and magical in that lovely setting.
  10. TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    Has TCM shown Amadeus?
  11. Unforgotten

    Did PBS really show two episodes last night? Did I turn off the tv too soon? I watched from 8 to 9:30 - was there more after that? If so, I missed it!
  12. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    The biggest laugh I've had in a long time: that middle guy identifying Sully Sullenberger as "Lindbergh." He will never live that down.
  13. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    I saw in my morning paper that a local boy was going to be on Jeopardy today so tuned in with special anticipation. Unfortunately Dom started in the middle of categories and also did that "push the buzzer extra hard" thing some people do when their reactions aren't quite fast enough to be first. I was mortified on his behalf when I saw his answer to FJ (the tuba). I hope he had no idea what the answer was, and just thought it might be a funny way to say "No idea." FJ was an instaget for me. I really like Marty.
  14. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    My dad, a fisherman who grew up in western Michigan, always pronounced it "crappie" (as in crap not crop). Loved The Right Stuff - book and movie. Moving, and funny as hell.
  15. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    Senator Mark Warner of Virginia is also in the news quite a bit these days as he is a leading minority figure on the Senate committee investigating possible Russian involvement in the 2016 election.
