    Father Brown

    Yes, Catholic. (compared to Grantchester's Sidney Chambers who is Anglican)

    Father Brown

    Yes, I miss her too. Was able to catch Sid (Alex Price) in NYC during one of his last performances in the Cursed Child on Broadway, & actor Paul Thornley who was in the same show (he played Joseph in S4, Ep 10 "Wrath of Baron Samdi"). I don't mind Bunty as much any more, tho she is certainly no substitute for Lady F. But while Mallory remains an incessantly annoying & condescending buffoon, he is ok. Although he needs to tone down that "Jolly Roger" pirate delivery - it's getting old. (I still prefer the 1st two inspectors) Show is quintessentially English of the 50's, well-acted, intelligently written - love it!

    I cannot believe there is no show Forum for this very popular period drama. (correct me/delete if I just happen to miss it since the recent updates). Love all the actors & the characters they play. Still miss Sid, but glad they often have old favorites come back & still do a show or two on occasion. Enjoying Season 7 now in the US. But the Cotswolds is clearly the "star" of this show.

    House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    Yes, just a little annoying. I mean, she's Italian, so she couldn't possibly cook her grandma's precious sauce on anything but a GAS stove! smh We get it, you prefer to cook with gas or rather, you don't want to cook with electric because "I can't even get my pasta water to boil! How did or do people manage to cook pasta, & ever serve delicious, edible meals cooked on an electric stove all these years??? lol

    S01.E01: The Boy on the Bridge

    Loved Ripper Street!!! He certainly moved up the ladder... Questions Enjoyed the 1st episode, but I'm having some trouble with the continuity. Sara "took" the file without "permission" per se. So when Kreizler didn't find any information in the file, the next thing we see is the cemetery with bodies exhumed. So did Kreizler get authority to exhume? If so, I would assume he would have told Roosevelt that he was not able to find any information from the file. Are we just assuming that Kreizler was able to convince Roosevelt (finally) that the cases may be related? No reprimand for Sara for releasing the file? Then the next scene we see the 2 medical examiner brothers introduced to us & Kreizler adds that Roosevelt didn't trust the county with what they were up to, so he sent the 2 brothers to help out Kreizler. Did I miss a scene or scenes? Roosevelt is portrayed in the 1st ep as dismissive & uncooperative. The last 20 mins seemed rushed to me.
  7. Hope this is in the right topic, but: 1. Can someone identify the music played during the 1st Hall of Fame practices? (song had "...come over baby...oh yeah.." & before Maddie got overheated) 2. Who is the blonde again on Point at the DCC-MTT episode intros, etc? 3. Do they ever list the songs used during practice/training camp?

    Copenhagen Taylor..... I am EX-HAUS-TED just listening to him! LOUD & Obnoxious - I was cringing. He was over 30 but the way he acted & spoke, you'd think he's still in college. But I love Copenhagen, so always good to see a HHI episode there.

    Yes, "river surfing". Surprisingly, there are a few rivers within countries like Switzerland, Germany, Slovakia, etc that offer this. It is more extreme & not sure if his board is suited for this type of surfing. It's not ideal (for many), but I have a few couple friends in Europe who buy a large portable tub that can fit in their showers as a substitute for not having a bathtub. They adapt & manage somehow.

    House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    Actually, this NYC house search is (IIRC) their 4th appearance on HH/HHI. They've bought homes in Buenos Aires, LA, Palm Springs & ofc now, NYC. They have different style preferences & even though the RE husband always had a bigger budget, they never appeared overbearing & came off as a "nice" couple.

    House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    While I didn't necessarily mind the Denver couple, her nose/nostrils & little body/small shoulders that resembled a 12 year old were a little distracting. They've also been friends since 4th grade, so I think the slight awkwardness may just be the TV shoot. Actually, I was more blown away by a couple at their age who had a $725,000 budget! While I'm sure they both have decent paying jobs in the Denver market, especially with Ivy league education, that size budget for 29/30 year olds just boggles the mind for many. With both having attended private schools for college (Harvard & Hamilton) & MBAs from UPenn & Columbia, how does one afford that size budget after all the costs spent on their education? They may very well have had a full scholarship, but MBAs don't come cheap either, so I highly suspect trust fund or family help? If they had family to help them out with their purchase, I don't begrudge them of that. Sometimes though, it would be nice to know that part (just like one college girl in HHI that disclosed her source for the purchase as inheritance).

    Yes, I got that too, after his insistence on a bathtub & grass (that really feels like grass mind you). And thought it was funny when the camera flashed to his face when his friend said "You'll have to get a rich husband," after being so surprised at how expensive the small fabric was at the textile store. And of course, supposedly heading to a foreign country without a job, then unsurprisingly we find him teaching at the International School...hmmm I did like the realtor.

    Dublin sisters. Agree on that oldest sister, & along with her washer/dryer in the kitchen comments, a total pill. It's a vacation place! Were they all single?..
