Oh yeah, that was a great episode. I felt sorry for AJ. He looked just the way I'd look if I tried that dance.

The latest subtitled Scandinavian drama on BBC4 is The Bridge, in which a body is dumped exactly in the centre of the ěresund Bridge between Denmark and Sweden. As a result, a Swedish policewoman with a sort of Aspergerish inability to connect with people and a chaotic but more human Danish policeman are obliged to work together to solve the case - especially as the body turns out to be half of a Danish body and half of a Swedish one. The first two episodes moved pretty quickly and there are various loose ends which don't yet seem connected to the main story - a heart transplant doesn't work, a man befriends down-and-out women, a journalist is trapped in his car with the minutes ticking down to zero ....

Certainly worth watching so far! Maybe an English-language version would start with a body on the border between the US and Canada (or between Kentucky and Indiana, or ...)

Oh, that sounds like a goodie. Lots of potential there; I hope we get it, or an English-language version of it. I've seen exactly two episodes of Borgen, in spite of setting the DVR to record the entire series. Even the scheduled episodes were never shown. No wonder no one's ever heard of Link TV.

Can you access the BBC iPlayer in the US? If so, you could watch the first two episodes of The Bridge:

"Currently BBC iPlayer TV programmes are available to play in the UK only"

Dern.

I'm sorry to see the Kentuckians gone from TAR. As annoying as they were, I got used to them and wished them well. Mark really crashed, didn't he? If they'd just started out a little earlier, they'd still be in the race.

The promos for the final episode of In Plain Sight are annoying. They give away The Big Surprise.

I've just been watching episode 6 (out of ten) of The Bridge. The body count is already higher than in both of The Killings put together and I'm still having trouble with trying to remember who is who. Meanwhile, the American version of the latter is now to be seen on our Channel 4, but I can't be bothered to watch it.
