  1. Yes, that's Mark. It also looked like he's bulked up a bit. It's kind of funny that he's been on the show for so long but we don't really know much about his character. Vera assigns him tasks and he returns with information. I'm fine with the secondary characters not having much in the way of subplots, but it doesn't seem like he has much of a personality either. Speaking of secondary characters, I've noticed a few former regulars popping up in interesting projects: Kingsley Ben-Adir (The OA, High Fidelity, Marvel's Secret Invasion series), Sonya Cassidy (Lodge 49, the upcoming The Man Wh
  2. My biggest laugh came when Vera is in the morgue discussing the latest findings about the victim and gazes at a sheet-covered body pensively until Malcolm abruptly asks, "You know that's not him, right?" and she gives him A Look before leaving.
  3. Ha, I hope you don't regret asking 😄 I didn't expect season 11 of Vera to show up on BriBox so quickly! Now I need a streaming platform to make Vigil available to watch in the US.
  4. I don't think these have been mentioned yet: Amazon Prime: The Missing Acorn: Jack Taylor, Wire in the Blood (although I didn't enjoy it as much after Hermione Norris left) BritBox: Scott & Bailey, Jonathan Creek, Cadfael, Life on Mars & Ashes to Ashes
  5. Ooh, I think I know which book you're talking about and agree. I was expecting quirky humor and heartwarming adventures and while there was some of that, I wasn't happy about the tragic turn it took. I will say the audiobook narrator was wonderful, though, and I cried at the ending despite myself.
  6. Pajiba published a nice write-up today about the show. It's so frustrating that it isn't available to stream anywhere. Justice for ‘Selfie,’ the John Cho Rom-Com Series Cancelled Way Too Soon
  7. I could be wrong, but I seem to remember reading that they tend to prefer carpets over potentially slippery surfaces like hardwood or tile because it helps them feel a bit more secure when vomiting. My cat made it to 23 and threw up a lot in her final years, so my ears became attuned to that horking sound and I would rush over from wherever I was hoping to catch whatever she was about to produce in a paper plate.
  8. I think all the available episodes are on Amazon US, but they're grouped differently: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_%26_Order:_UK#Episodes
  9. We Broke Up showed up on Hulu a few days ago and looked promising. It stars Aya Cash and William Jackson Harper, and focuses on a longtime couple that breaks up a few days before her sister's wedding when he proposes and her only response is to vomit. Unfortunately, I only made it halfway through before giving up. I just didn't find it funny and thought it looked kind of cheap. I was also irritated by how obviously alternative romantic prospects were introduced. It was nice to see Larisa Oleynik and Peri Gilpin, though. But if anyone thinks it gets better in the second half, let me know a
  10. So glad I gave this a shot before my Peacock subscription expired because I loved it. One of the few things I've watched recently that managed to make me laugh and cry. All the characters are great, but Amina's anxiety issues really resonated with me. Her poetry reading was hard to watch because it was so well-acted. I also loved the fantasy sequences and how the show looks and feels overall. There's a freshness and brightness to it that's just so engaging. It's disappointing that there hasn't been a season 2 announcement yet, but hopefully that'll happen soon.
  11. ‘Manifest’ Making Deals With Cast & Writers As Series Gets Closer To Resurrection At Netflix I was impressed by how long Manifest stayed in Netflix's top 10 most watched list and hope this works out if only so there's a proper ending.
  12. Along the same lines, did I miss it or did we not see any fallout from the situation with Fiona's horrible brother-in-law? She's going to be playing a cop again in Annika. She's been voicing the character on the BBC Radio show for a few years now.
  13. I caught a few episodes of this show during its original run, but have been binge watching it now that it's back on Netflix. I think Matt, Jason, and Tim got more attention during the early seasons and while they're all great, it was Smash's story at the end of season 2 and beginning of season 3 that got to me the most. It's interesting to see how the actors' careers have progressed. I don't think I would've predicted that Jesse Plemons would be among the more successful.
  14. One of the funniest moments from the Clue episode was when Gus goes missing and Shawn freaks out and tells Juliet that it should've been her instead.
  15. I find James Corden more tiresome than hateworthy, but got a good laugh from some of the Twitter reactions today when he popped up in the Cinderella trailer:
