The Week in Entertainment

DVD: Several episodes of Father Brown, a BBC adaptation,  well done and quite entertaining.

TV: I'm not sure that I know where The Mentalist is going - Lisbon leaving? The show relocating to DC from Texas? Pike (like Van Pelt's boyfriend) being yet another sleeper bad guy? Or pushing Lisbon and Jane into a relationship, which could go badly. This was a good episode, though - lots of nice little bits, especially Cho-related ones. Caught up on The Crazy Ones, a couple of good, funny episodes. Zach and Dylan in the museum cracked me up. And apparently they aren't making Sydney and Andrew a couple, or at least not at the moment.Interesting choice. Modern Family - caught up. I laughed out loud at Lily saying "I have enough regrets."And the kangaroo punching Phil - hilarious - and the dingo stealing Claire's baby (laptop). And in the other one, "I knew what it wasn't, I just wasn't sure what it was" followed by the lawyer fake. And Stella on the skateboard. Grimm  - okaaaay. They didn't tell Adelind. That will cause problems - though of course telling her would have been a really awful idea, too. There were no good ways out. And of course Cosmos.

Read: Reread Peter Robinson's In A Dry Season, one of my favorites by him. A couple of Georgette Heyer's Regencies, in Russian. Also a couple of them in English. Ordeal by Innocence, one of my favorite Christies (sparked by watching the French version of it). A delightful book called NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette which uses drawings (gifs if you get the animated version) to point out various things about being in New York - like, for instance, where not to stop and read the map you do  have to have, or how not to kill cyclists by opening your door in the bike lane. Funny and helpful.

For comparison, in Australian screenings of The Mentalist we've just had the final Red John confrontation.
