Stranger Things is good, although creepy.  I watched the first 2 seasons but didn't continue.

Murdoch Mysteries is back for its umpteenth season. Constable George Crabtree was promoted at the end of the last season to Inter Inspector, and I a really neat touch demonstrated the esteem in which he is held by his peers:

I wasn't sure when I first saw it if it was a clever hint or a stupid misprint by the set-dressers but he referred to it, making it obviously deliberate (and so subtle that it had to be pointed out)

Banana could be called a carb tree. Eh.

Banana is a herb.

That may be so, but the lyrics to Yellow Bird suggest otherwise.

Durn. I accede to such an authoritative source.

And it was before the days of the intarwebz. That doubles its credibility, at least.

Kim Kong.  French series about a jaded director of action films (French) who is filming yet another blockbuster in Asia when he's suddenly kidnapped by the henchmen of a nearby dictator.  Why?  They want him to produce a film for the Dear Leader.  A remake of King Kong according to a script by the Dear Leader.

Hilarity ensues.  It takes a while to gain momentum but it's pretty entertaining.

Indeed. I remember it from my youth, so it is definitely ancient.

At least you can remember your youth.

The last couple of weeks my household has just been one illness after another so we've spent many days without much to do. The wife and I thought we'd give In The Line Of Duty a go, even though it's not really what I would call "my sort of thing". It's actually very good, if not terribly frustrating. I think it works better now that we know of the horrors that really go on inside our police force. I think if I'd watched it 10 years ago, I would have thought it was fiction beyond reality.
