Close-up of the ornamental quince outside our front door. Over now, but glorious in May.
The Killing: Seasons 1 and 2*****We missed this first time it aired (maybe we were in Portugal) so thought we’d try it and ended up binge watching just in case they took it down from iPlayer. Great drama with convoluted plots and good acting and direction. The ending, plus the fact that it was made in 2012 (for the native Danish market) suggest there will be no more but at least it helped fuel Scandi-noir.
Second Wave: Did the government get it wrong? Dispatches.**** (UK: Channel 4)
Excellent drawing together of all the government mishaps and errors starting at the beginning of 2020. Of course it’s easy to criticise with hindsight, but this current crop of politicians doesn’t seem to learn from its mistakes. As usual with Dispatches, I wanted slightly more information.
Schitt’s Creek. Abandoned. (During ep 2)
I’d been told so much about this and had recommendations from all and sundry. It just wasn’t for me. It’s not that I dislike comedy/drama or the basic concept. I just can’t cope with what for me is over-acted American humour. Disappointed. I can sort of see why a lot of people love it, but I’m not among them..
