Love/Hate (2010-2014) – Season 2

The story of the organized crime scene of Dublin is revealed, centered on Darren, who wants to stay out of trouble but ends up returning to his old habits and his old gang.

My thoughts: I was on the fence about this show after its first season, but am now firmly a fan after season 2.


The Mire (2018)

In an early-’80s Polish town, a prostitute and a youth leader are found killed, but the police’s handling of the case makes two journalists suspicious.

My thoughts: Bleak, slow, and somewhat confusing.


Cardinal (2017-2020) Season 1

Detectives John Cardinal and Lise Delorme investigate the murder of a young girl, while Cardinal struggles to right past wrongs that could derail the investigation and end his career, as the case grows more violent and twisted.

My thoughts: Covers well-trodden ground in well-trodden ways.


Luther (2010 – 2019) Season 1

DCI John Luther is a near-genius murder detective whose brilliant mind can’t always save him from the dangerous violence of his passions.

My thoughts: Elba is great, but his Clarice-Hannibal relationship with Ruth Wilson’s Alice Morgan is pretty ludicrous.


Vigil (2021)

The mysterious disappearance of a Scottish fishing trawler and a death onboard a Trident nuclear submarine bring the police into conflict with the Navy and British security services.

My thoughts: A taught, suspenseful thriller with some masterful episode outs.

  1. Yup.
    WP is definitely on the fritz these last several days.
    This October 17th entry reads as posted on October 14th.
    Don’t think it’s a problem with posting from phone vs laptop.
    You never seemed to have a problem posting from phone before?
    It is more likely a problem on their end.

  2. Reallly??? What about the last time you were in LA, when you saw Weird Al Yankovic having lunch?? or The Last time you were in Tokyo when you went to check out the Christmas lights??
    Did you post all those blog entries from laptop. ??
    I’m still inclined to think its a glitch on their end.
    A couple blog comments I typed and sent from laptop
    wishing you Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary for Oct 16
    seemed to have disappeared.

    Do you own a small portable tablet?
    If so, maybe bring that with you on your next travel adventure??

    A little birdie tells me your next quick trip is going to be
    to Alaska to adopt an extremely adorable sea otter puppers.
    😀 xo
    whaaa? Donts look at me cross eyed!!!
    You said you were open to adopting mixed pups.
    Sooooo, This one just happens to have aquatic mix in her.
    I bet she’d still seek you out to snuggle close on the bed at night.

    Happy Birthday
    Happy Anniversary
    And Welcome Sharky!

    Sorry it didn’t work out for getting Sharky a sibling in LA.
    Albeit, hopefully you’ll find the right constant support companion for him soon. xo

    1. I always traveled with my laptop. This is the first time I didn’t and updated from the shitty phone app.
