Um, I hate to rain on the parade, but Raydor didn't really narrow down the field. Her encounter with the lawyer at the very end of the episode was not the first indication that the story of her leaving was no longer secret. Provenza knew about it; even Fritz knew. So since the story was circulating through the squad room (Taylor's big mouth at work, no doubt), then anyone in that room could have called the lawyer.

I'm watching "The Killing [Forbrydelsen] II" at the moment. There are ten episodes, and BBC4 is showing them in pairs on Saturday evenings, 9-11pm, so the series is a great deal shorter than the previous one. I've seen the first six episodes, and the whole thing is much more taut than series I - although new characters are introduced fairly frequently, they don't disappear (unless they die, which some of them do). In series I, pretty much every episode introduced a new suspect or suspects and many of them were cleared and then disappeared.

Series II concentrates on something (as yet unrevealed) that happened to some Danish soldiers in Afghanistan, and they and others are being targeted by persons unknown. Meanwhile, a new Minister of Justice is thrust into the limelight and has to learn fast, especially as politicians are pressing for curbs on Muslims.

Sarah Lund has been called up again, of course, and has unsurprisingly cut corners and has just been sacked (but she's still working unofficially on the case).

It's very enjoyable, with lots of twists and turns.

So she didn't escape after all? No marriage? Hm. I don't know when we're getting season 2 of the American version. It should be soon.

Is anyone else disappointed with the return of The Closer? The Santa episode last week must be their worst episode ever, and this week wasn't much better.

They look as if they're just marking time until the Big Finale and the transition to the new series. One thing of note in last week's episode: Pope actually helped Brenda. He talked her expensive lawyer into continuing to represent her, only now doing it pro bono. Not the act of someone out to sabotage her.

NCIS -- what's happened to McGee's voice? It used to be a resonant baritone but now it's lighter and higher-pitched. Is that deliberate? Is Sean Murray sick?

Some bloggers are saying it's the result of Murray's weight loss. I don't know how much that is worth.

A quite satisfactory conclusion to Survivor, for a change. It was a default winner, again. The votes weren't so much for Sophie as they were against Coach. But enough people got fed up with his holier-than-thou performance to give her the million dollars. Poor Albert, completely ignored (as he should have been!). In a way, Cochran was right when he said Coach had played the best game and deserved to win. But I'm so glad he didn't. smile

Ah, but did Coach play the best game? It came out in the final tribal council that Sophie plotted their game; she was the strategist. Coach was the actor to Sophie' script, all the while convincing himself he was being "honorable" and "a Christian man" and all the rest of it. That way he took the heat from those voted off, not Sophie. She played a smart game and deserves her prize.
