    So I just backed the Matt Zoller Seitz book project on Kickstarter with a $30 pledge - and discovered that postage to Australia (where I live) is a whopping $95! I ended up saying on the form that I was in the USA and putting in the zip code from where one of my friends lives, which changed that postage cost to $12. Once the book is available I guess I'll have to visit, or persuade one of my stateside friends to come over here ...

    Don't feel dumb. I didn't see it as a deathbed scene either. To my mind, Al lives on in all his majestic fucking glory!

    Wentworth

    Our show won the 2019 Logie award for the Most Outstanding Drama on Sunday night. This is a peer-voted award, and the show was up against some stiff competition, so it's a great achievement. The Logies are sort of a cross between the People's Choice Awards and the Golden Globes. See if you can recognise everyone all glammed up!

    Season Three Talk: FFwSB

    Good show this week. I always love it when Sam gets righteously angry, and the first segment, in which she read the media to filth because they should all be asking Drumpf and all GOP members about the TWENTY-TWO sexual assault allegations made against the Toddler-in-Chief, and they aren't, and they all need to DO THEIR FUCKING JOB, had me punching the air in support.

    BH: 90210 Reboot.... It’s so Meta

    This is for any fellow Australians who frequent this board: Channel 10 will show the reboot in August/September.

    Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries

    It's made by the same production company, but Kerry Greenwood didn't write it. I know that she gave her blessing to the spin-off and is happy with how it turned out (she's a personal friend).

    Yes! It was really shocking, and best of all, we don't know whodunnit as there are a few possible suspects. I agree with some of your comments above, @zibnchy, about the new season. The biggest difference between this season and earlier seasons, I think, is that everything is so deadly serious now. I mean, there was always major serious stuff happening, but it was somewhat leavened by Boomer and Franky, and even the Freak at times. Lately we've had the occasional funny line from Boomer, but not much else. We need a balanced diet, please, writers!

    Deadwood

    I loved the nods to the original series we got in the movie - things like Bullock taking Hearst by the ear, and Trixie calling the marshal 'fuckin' Bullock'. I know there were others, but those two in particular delighted me.

    Yeah, I did wonder about that, but I was so pleased to see Doc Cochran that I really didn't care.

    Here's what Alan Sepinwall wrote about Caroline in the long article I posted upthread. I like this explanation.

    Here is a wonderful long review/recap by Alan Sepinwall in Rolling Stone. He acknowledges a lot of the shortcomings noted by @benteen above, but decides: Me too, Alan. Me too.
