  1. Yeah, that one was pretty boring. I think my favorite part was the rat at the end.
  2. That's the one I always mention to show how ridiculous it can be even though I love the show. Half the bellringers get murdered yet they still compete and win!
  3. I like Humphrey but I think his 'schtick' was slapstick, I mean he fell out of a window on his first case. If you don't like that kind of physical humor you're not going to like him. But... Richard's 'schtick' was being the fish out of water, he refused to give in to the island and he was plenty rude about it too. I love him but a rewatch showed me how rude he was. Jack's 'schtick' seems to be 'Dad's humor' thing. He tells the kinds of stories about his extended family that a 'dad' would. Plus he acted like a dad, not only to his daughter but also to Florence and Ruby. I found his st
  4. Also in regards to uniforms, Ruby fills out the shirt much, much better than Florence did. I don't know if it's because she's bustier or because she's actually wearing a woman's shirt and Florence was wearing a man's shirt. Actually the short time Florence was in uniform was really sketchy, not only did it look like she was wearing a man's shirt but her epaulets were different and everything just seemed 'off'. It's like they knew she'd be plain clothes soon so they didn't care to match it to the others. And I can't remember if I've mentioned this before, if I have, sorry, but the Commissi
  5. They usually have 4 judges, Tom, Gail, Padma and a guest judge, so also might end up in a tie. The brief was for ten plates, nine plates do not fulfill the brief.
  6. It looked to me and my daughter that the chef Tom chose for each of the 'tie' rounds was the one that ended up the winner.

    I believe, I don't know, but I believe that there is a test you must take to become a detective, and another to become a detective sergeant and another to become an inspector etc. But just because you pass the test does not mean you automatically become that thing. There must be an opening for whichever and yes, that would be a budgeting thing since they would be paid more. Levitt will not become a plain clothes detective until there is an opening for one at which time all eligible would be considered for the position and the PtB would choose the one they feel is best. Same up the ladder. Wasn
  8. Maybe, at times. But I just finished watching the episode where she thought she was cursed because of the playing card clue and I'm pretty sure she was wearing a skirt and riding the motorcycle (because then the motorcycle broke down and she thought it was part of the curse), unless she was wearing something under the skirt that I didn't see. In the very next episode Ruby is definitely wearing a skirt not a skort and driving the motorcycle. The skirt is hiked up about mid-thigh, which I still have a problem believing that is high enough to straddle the motorcycle but still, it's high
  9. Maybe, at times.

  10. I have had that thought as well. Short shorts should not be part of 'plain clothes detective' and any shirt where I wonder how the bra strap is not showing probably shouldn't be either. Other than that it's ok. Oh, sort of the reverse of that... I thought Ruby should've been allowed to wear slacks like J.P. (unless that was a personal choice), but I do not see how she could've driven that motorcycle in that skirt?!
  11. As someone upthread mentioned, Gabe almost -had- to do the amuse. The way they structured their team as 'everyone for themselves' meant each had to do 2 dishes in a 7 course meal. He might have done better to do a second dessert. Maybe?
  12. Haven't watched the newest ones (watching Death in Paradise with my daughter, a newbie, then Brokenwood is next) and I had to look up what PLI is, but no. No PLI or UST between main characters. Or even secondary characters.
  13. While the man's wheelchair bound wife gives directions? yep, that's the one where Tom and Sgt. Scott are locked in a wine cellar and he thinks Joyce is frantically worrying about him and she actually just went out dancing by herself and didn't even notice that he didn't come home. When Scott telephones her in the morning she asks him to have Tom bring home some yogurt.
  14. yep, that's the one, I was amused when she and the boy were sitting in the dark and she was yelling at him to stop touching her and he lit a match or something to show her he wasn't touching her and it was a dead man's hand on her knee. And I forgot to mention the psychic baby, the one that cried everytime a 'bad guy' was near. There was a family who had precognition.
  15. Oh, I know. I just find that no other show I watch uses kids in quite the same way. And it's not just the killer kids, almost every time a kid character is used it's interesting, not just in the background. Loved the little girl who knew all the dogs. And one I just saw where I didn't much like the character but it was effective, the one who kept saying 'fact' in her dialog. The boy in the Christmas one with the magic tricks. They just seem to use kid characters better than most.
