    Series 6: Nouvelle Enquête

    Just watched end of Series 6...yokes, Laure :( what is she doing?? Still, Spiral is one of the best overall series ever along with the Bridge (Swedish version.) hate to see either end but happy they each have one more season.

    Midsomer Murders

    New ones are easy to critcize for me lol...obviously. Yet I am addicted to the style and mood of the show and it is brainless viewing for the most part. But much more difficult with characters that are so unlikable to me. The DS’s never bother me, though the first three are my favorites. Poor Charlie Nelson has dne a foot chase in three striaght episodes I watched this weekend. I know he is a runner on the show but good grief. Amazing how many people hoof it from cops in this series, guilty or not. Well I am still bingeing I admit but gritting my teeth at JB and skip over the “at home”cutesy scenes...not a fan of the baby either... JB’s little monologues at summation are stolen straight from Poirot’s character...and his “one more thing” from Colombo. Not very original on characterization. To me he is such a boor...thinks he is way smarter than he is. And so damned rude to his sergeants! What is that supposed to prove? He had only had Ben when Charlie came on board, yet he acted so put out. And why is Tom never even mentioned, it is like he never existed. Ugh I miss Tom, at least he had a twinkle in his eye.

    DS Nelson telling J. Barnavy about his new flat situation, smalltalk...JB says “you do know I don’t care, don’t you?” Ugh what a pompous ass.

    I only liked “John Barnaby” when he played the gardener on an early episode, can’t recall name, maybe “Garden of Death”? Something like that. Really dislike him as JB, ruins all the later seasons for me. As much as Joyce and Cully could be annoying and obnoxious...they both get so up in arms if a murder spoils their plans to drag Tom to some silly fete or other. Otherwise the first 12 or so seasons are quite enjoyable to me and I like all three of the DS’s equally, in different ways...and better than those who came after Ben.

    Been bingeing on old episodes, to see Tom B. Seems the last words of most victims on MM are “oh, it’s you!”

    I do not care for the newest ME. She can’t say anything without trying to make a bad pun or sexual innuendo. Men would be fired for some of her dumb remarks. jB is a rude boor.

    Midsomer Murders

    Not wild about season 20...and just can’t take John Barnaby. Not liking this DS as much as the old ones. Scott, Ben and Troy were my favs. John is insufferable and pompous...not crazy about Sarah either lol...but like the dog.

    Midsomer Murders

    I miss Tom B. all the time. Do not care for John or Sarah or how she seems to be woven into so many of the cases like a sidekick almost. And John is far more condescending even than Tom with his DS’s, rude even. Tom had a twinkle in his eye when he made them chase down suspects through hedges and brooks. The latest episodes are not nearly as interesting as the earlier seasons. I know they had to add diversity but now the crimes are not as interesting, nor are the supporting characters. But I like the scenery and villages so I watch anyway but do not look forward to them as much.

    S06.E13: Making Fashion History

    LI muted the actual shows as I could not bear to hear Ann muttering inanely to each designer. I really thought Anthony would come in last...feared Fabio might win to show the “with-it” young vibe of the judges. But his clothes do have a medical/uniform sort of vibe crossed with a kimono-type style that often look made of muslin. I did not care for Stanley’s massive button/circles, pins or no. And Alyssa...good grief girlfriend. Stay true to your baaaad style. Really hope the orginal PR is picked up elsewhere. As a reality show it is miles above others even when it frustrates and Heidi, Tim and Zac are good value to me anyway...I enjoy all three. There are so many channels and so many truly terrible shows...I do not know who half the people are who have shows. At least PR has a sort of function and goal and COULD produce a great designer along the way. Christian is worth all of the bad seasons and off-shoots alone. He is changing the industry all by himself. Maybe he would have made his way in any case but maybe not. Hoping Anothony can become the next red carpet designer to the stars...he deserves it.

    If this WAS the last episode as rumored...at least it ended with Anthony’s win. But hoping another network will pick up the original PR. This is the first win to shock me in a good way.

    S06.E12: History in the Making

    So is this the very end of all PR, with this poor offshoot episode tonight? I read today that PR is dead, thanks to Weinstein reverberations. If so, a sad way to go out. And why oh why do I have to see Amanda on my screen yet again? Spare me, please. If this is the last of her, it could be worth losing PR...is there a thread for tonight??
