Oh, yes! I had no idea those two women hated each other. I didn't even notice they hadn't had a scene together for the last two seasons. And their farewell scene -- what a klunker!

Yes, and that farewell scene was patched together, since the two sides of the conversation were recorded separately. I guess they couldn't stand to look at each other, even for that. So we got those awkward back of the head shots and the two of them never touching or even clinking glasses before downing their shots. It's too bad, because Kalinda strikes me as a very handy person to have around.

Personality conflicts between the actresses?

Kalinda was a wonderful character to have on hand, but if her role (investigator) is needed, surely they will fill it. Archie Panjabi did a wonderful job of it, though.

It's fair to add that all of the hoohah, including the idea that the final scene was filmed separately, is fan speculation. Nothing has been publicly acknowledged.

It probably never will be. Archie Punjabi has signed a contract with 20th Century Fox for her own drama series, reason enough to leave. The fact that she was kept on the show for two and a half years despite the animus between her and the star means either Julianna Margulies behaved with perfect professionalism or that she didn't have enough clout to get rid of Punjabi.

The new Poldark starts tonight on PBS. I barely remember the original, back in the 70s. One thing I do remember quite vividly was a time the two stars, Robin Ellis and Angharad Rees, took part in one of PBS's begathons. Every time she'd say something, she'd giggle and look to Ellis for approval. He, on the other hand, didn't even try to hide his disdain for her. Not a pleasant thing to watch. Rees died a few years ago, but Ellis has a small role as a judge in this new version -- two episodes, I think.

Barbara, are you still watching Poldark? Both Poldark and The Forsytes were big disappointments to me.

To me, too; I bailed on both. But I'll tell you a show I have come to appreciate, though: Halt and Catch Fire. I was of two minds about it the first season, but I liked the second season a lot and I'm keeping my fingers crossed there'll be a third season.

H&CF is a goodie...it's more believable than other computer-geniuses shows, like the current Mr. Robot. Anyone watching that? In the second or third episode, the superhacker anti-hero broke into somebody's system by (brace yourself, now) guessing the password. That's the oldest cheat there is in computer shows. Phooey.

Yeah, Mr. Robot works so hard at appearing kewl, but misses so badly. That bug-eyed blank face, the monotone voiceover, the drugs, the anti-social behavior...we're supposed to overlook all that because he's good at guessing passwords? I don't think so.
