Not sure if you’re being serious or not.

It’s a guilty pleasure for sure. Much like “All Creatures Great and Small”.

Just not the same after they offed Sykes due to a contract dispute and definitely not to the dog actor actually dying, the dog is enjoying retirement and playing with sick children and will for many decades to come

Arguably also not the same after they sacked that producer who said the show was so white because only white people lived in British villages, and I suppose you could make a case for when they switched out the entire cast, but for my money it's the Sykes schism

What are you talking about the first episode of the last season has three black characters and two asian characters. yeah, one of the black guys is killed. And the Asian woman is a computer hacker. But the villain is a white Karen!

If that's not intersectionalism I don't know what is

You can tell in between which seasons they fired that producer because it's like fifty seasons of the kind of England Eric Clapton envisions and suddenly exactly 60% of the guest cast for every single episode is minorities as though ITV is running down a "Prevent Another PR Disaster" checklist

Rosemary supremacy; Pam Ferris will always be Trunchbull to me and so I hate her on sight

Absolutely, Mirren kicked ass in that

A lot of these shows, definitely not Prime Suspect, I enjoy even though they're a bit cheesy; they're the type of British detective show I think of as, "Victim's loved one gazes out a window holding a cup of tea upon being informed of the murder"

One serious show I really love, though I haven't seen the latest season yet, is Unforgotten



Season-long investigations of a body that's turned up many years after the murder

Nicola Walker is the queen of acting with her eyes, goddamn

Also have to mention my entry point into the world of cheeseball British detective shows, and still my favorite comfort watch



I will never watch the last episode. Poirot will never die

Probably never gonna have my picture taken with another actor from one of these shows but, let me tell you, David Suchet is the kindest man

I hope this doesnít ruin David Suchet for you but my husband likes to listen to religious text audiobooks and when he does, they end up getting played in the car etc., and David Suchetís audio bible is really something else

I only liked Midsomer Murders with the first detective and sidekick Troy, the new sidekick was bad enough but when they switched out the detective it really did not feel the same

You know I really loved Luther the first time I watched it and then I went back and was sort of horrified by how disposable it sort of was

Just listened to a bit of it on YouTube and it sounds pretty good. Not for me but certainly doesn't bother me. Especially because, while looking it up, I learned that he had a religious epiphany and became a Christian while filming Harry and the Hendersons, which is just fucking delightful

Goes back to his hotel after staring into this face all fucking day and finds God, what a story

Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators

It’s like wearing a furry bat suit, sitting on a couch on a cold winters evening in front of a roaring fire, sipping mulled wine, it’s that cozy.

Like, you tell me who's a synthoid and who's a believable person


In looking for that Unforgotten image, I did discover a) that there will indeed be another season and b) why you were thinking there might not be

there isn't a single TV promo photo that will pique my interest in a show. it's like they're covered in a thick layer of implication about the show that just falls back on cliches and tropes.


every one of these shows looks boring but i'm willing to blame it on the promo photo format

Agreed. It's all down to focus groups, right? A/B testing? How is the most popular way to advertise a show these days just "Here's the faces of the people in it"? I want a return to how they used to advertise shows: WITH ENERGY.

He whisked off her shoes and panties in one movement, wild like an enraged shark, his bulky totem beating a seductive rhythm. Mary's body felt like it was burning, even though the room was properly air-conditioned. They tried all the positions: on top, doggy, and normal. Exhausted, they collapsed on to the recently extended sofa bed. Then a hellbeast ate them.
