The Week in Entertainment
DVD: Lewis Season 7. I do love Robbie Lewis. I'm sad this is the end of the show.Lovely to see Edward Fox in the final episode (he's Laurence Fox, who plays Hathaway,'s uncle).
TV: The Mentalist back on surer ground with a story that never mentions the demigod they've turned Red John into (I suppose this is part of the current serial killer craze on tv nowadays). (But it missed the mark on some details.) And then finally caught up on Psych, which had a cute ref to The Mentalist (again) in the first episode, and then two more - the bigfoot episode, hilarious (poor Lassie) with another great Juliet saves the day bit and full new credits! Followed by Henry in peril in Mexico (No Country for Two Old Men), very funny especially when Juliet recaps the off-screen developments and Gus says "you already told us that in the car" and she says "I have to cover the bases" and Shawn and Gus look at each other: "For who?" - and they gave us a Latin version of the credits (arriba!).Grimm - caught up on that. Two good episodes though the one about the fly-thing? Gross. Also - Hank? Trust the blutbad: if Monroe didn't see the guy come out the back, he didn't come out the back.
Read: A Tale for the Time Being, Ruth Ozeki's fascinating novel about a woman in British Columbia who finds the diary of a Japanese girl washed up on the shore, carefully packed away and presumably delivered by the ocean after the tsunami. Reading Nao's words from years earlier, Ruth finds herself drawn into the life of a girl she will never meet...
