Either way, I am happy to suspend disbelief for the sake of one hour of commercial free, non-reality TV programming with lots of bad words and knockers in it
I would have thought a CIA operative undertaking the job she is supposed to do would have a physical and mental evaluation...by their own doctors. I also think this would be done on a regular basis.

You make the common mistake that the 'Intelligence' that the I stands for is supposed to mean the intellectual kind, rather than reconnaissance ...

Bloody good show, IMO.
I think I saw two episodes of that and gave up. Regardless of Damian Lewis, I just couldn't do it.

It was a nice hour of mindless escapism on a Sunday night. Compare it to the utterly mind-numbingly banal reality shite that the standard cable channels seem to offer nothing but these days, I'll take what I can get

Downton Abbey.

I have finally got the maid curtsying when I enter the room, the kids now call me "papa" and Mrs E is resplendant in that whalebone girdle I bought her for Christmas.

I hear there is a new series of "the thick of it" in the UK? So we will get that in 2018. No BBC iplayer for us.

It's aged pretty well, the beginning is a bit dated but after that it's excellent.

The fact that they are pretty much going back to the medieval period helps

Notre Dame, beating Michigan...but with the number of interceptions, I'm impressed it isn't a massacre....

The Great British Bake Off ..... great stuff!

Always feel hungary after I've watched it though.
