The Week in Entertainment
edited to say: Yikes! I had a very busy weekend and Monday, and ... well ... I thought this was in draft, not scheduled, status!
Film: Blue Jasmine, which was wonderful to watch. Cate Blanchett is astonishing - so are Sally Hawkins and Bobby Cannavale, for that matter.
TV: The Newsroom - wow. I can't believe Leona's going to go head to head with that guy - the whole A Team should have been fired (of course, there wouldn't be a show if that happened!) Broadchurch - well, obviously Jack was going to be (a) innocent and (b) dead, because that's the trope. I didn't expect the reason he was (a), I admit. And the show is still riveting.
Read: A mystery about eventing called Murder She Rode - stupid title but a pretty good story. The author did do something that annoys me mightily; she writes in first person, and then decides she needs to tell the reader things that the narrator wouldn't know, so she abruptly chunks in a couple of scattered third-person chapters that don't feature the narrator. Also, Sir Laurence Dies, a book set in the 1930s but just written, about a Dutch psychologist-sleuth, pretty good. A couple of books written in the 1920s by a guy called JJ Connington, also mysteries, and quite intricate and well done.
