We've had neighbors leaving feet first this weekend (not the old bitty next door, but nice old ladies from across the way). It's rather grim to sit down with your evening meal and see a body being taken out. Or sit down with your morning cuppa, raise the shade and see what looks like a rerun with the same cast of police, fire dept., and ambulance sans lights and sirens only at a different door. For days like these, we have light British comedy and distracting mystery.
Stephen Fry can make my day, even when it starts with a dead neighbor
"Have I Got News for You" is back with a fresh series
A favorite mystery series, "Jonathan Creek"
Another fun panel show, "Would I Lie to You?"
And a nice long (2 1/2 hour) mystery- the pilot of "The Inspector Lynley Mysteries" (and several younger, familiar faces in it, too)
There. That's better. Not lifting the shade for a while today.
