The Week in Entertainment

DVD: Charlie Chan in London, Paris & Shanghai, some of the best of the Sidney Toler years.

TV:The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, which is one of my favorite Wes Andersons. And somehow managed to forget to mention I started Vicious, which is somehow absolutely standard humor despite being about two long-term gay partners - played, of course, by Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi (so good). Also the second season of Last Tango in Halifax

Read: Finished The Three, which was very good. Murder and Mendelssohn, the latest Phryne Fisher, which is my favorite so far. Finished the Kate McCall series - reread the first three (Kate McCall, Private Eye; One Little Lie; Road Trip) and then the last two, Just a Con and Happy Endings. It's a nice goofy series. Shattered, the latest in the Iron Druid series, which takes a couple of hard turns. Shadows Beneath, the Writing Excuses Anthology, which gives us the stories and then discussion and drafts of each one. The Stories We Tell,  an intriguing story. Asylum Harbor, a quick read that holds your attention.

No new season of "Endeavour" on PBS? They do a great job of evoking 1966 (which I'm old enough to recall clearly), as well as development of the characters of Morse and Thursday.

No new season of "Endeavour" on PBS for you?

I watched the whole thing back in May on DVD. So I'm not watching it now.

But I agree they're doing a tremendous job - though I'm just slightly sick of the whole "secret society" thing (blame The Mentalist)

Ugh, we saw what you mean on tonight's episode, and wish this were the end of it (although fear not).
