  1. New episode available 12/20 on Acorn. And Season 4 begins in March, 2022. From Cord Cutters News:
  2. So I guess this means there will be a limbo-off next week?

    I subscribe to both Britbox and Acorn through Amazon Prime Videos, and there doesn't seem to be any way to have notifications sent from those services--or at least I can't find one. Maybe it works if you subscribe directly with Britbox and Acorn.

    Is there a set schedule for when a new episode will be available on Britbox? I feel like I always have to go in and check to see if there are new episodes of my streaming favorites. It was quite by accident that I found that Season 6 of "Shetland" had started. Same goes for Midsomer. And probably will be the case with Vera as well. Is there a way to be notified when a new episode is available?
  5. PKU became an issue when aspartame (NutraSweet) was invented back in the '80s. It contains phenylalanine, which cannot be broken down by people who have PKU. That's why you see warning labels on Diet Coke.
  6. I got the impression that the church was rationalizing its financing of the flat because they were planning to hold their services there. I don't think they would have gone along with the scheme if it was just going to be Cyril's residence.
  7. I kept wondering about the lack of brandy in the brandy snaps--but apparently the name has nothing to do with the beverage. It comes from "branded," as in "burnt" (like in branding cattle.) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brandy_snaps An interesting coincidence that the first two people to depart are the first two in this group picture (reading from left to right and top to bottom.

    Midsomer Murders

    Did anyone else think it was odd that both Mr. Karras and Joshua were clearly American (or Canadian) but no mention of it was ever made?

    Midsomer Murders

    Season 22, Episode 3 ("Happy Families") premieres tomorrow (9/27) on Acorn for viewers in North America.
  10. So I have now watched every available episode of: Vera McDonald & Dodds Miss Fisher (the original) DCI Banks Inspector George Gently Line of Duty Endeavour Inspector Morse Inspector Lewis Death in Paradise Father Brown Midsomer Murders Grantchester Marple, Poirot and all related Christie stuff Criminal (UK) A Touch of Frost I just started on Shakespeare and Hathaway. I could not get into the updated "Miss Fisher" series -- too many improbabilities and plot holes. I've watched a few "Pie in t
  11. In S8E6 ("The Numbers of the Beast"), Mrs. McCarthy's sister is played by Sorcha Cusack's real-life sister.
  12. I think it was made very clear in the first episode that Sprqpoint is in San Francisco, not the suburbs.
  13. So no one else got a Kimmy Schmidt/Titus Andromedon vibe from Zoey and Mo?
  14. I noticed that Julian Ovenden played the part of the artist in that brief exchange with Lady Danbury and one of the non-Anthony Bridgerton brothers (I can't tell B & C apart yet.) I have to assume he will end up with more to do in future episodes--they generally don't cast well-known people just to give them a couple of throwaway lines.
  15. Millicent definitely has memory issues if she thinks that she had a Harvey Wallbanger in 1928. They were probably invented in the '50s but didn't become a "thing" until the '60s, so they probably would have been new and trendy at the time CTM takes place.
