What a great TAR finale! That crazy Japanese chicken TV show, sushi Bingo, and Rachel and Dave winning TWICE! I loved it.

This whole race has been better than other recent ones, like they got a second wind or something. Or maybe a bigger budget? Whatever, let's hope they keep up the good work.

I'm getting a little annoyed with The Killing, though. The Rosie Larsen case should be solved by now, but they've even introduced new characters this late in the game.

Not sure whether you're referring to The Bridge or The Killing, Chris. On the latter, there's no reason why I should watch the US version, whether or not the dénouement is different. I've never had the urge to see things like Elliott Gould in The Lady Vanishes when I can see Michael Redgrave and a whole lot of great (or Great) British actors in a film directed by Alfred Hitchcock. On the former, well, I'm only at episode 6 out of 10 and, although some things have, apparently, been explained, there are still a large number of suspects and new developments, plus some unexpected events in some of the protagonists' lives.

In The Killing (American version), Linden has lost her marriage, her son, and her job. I don't see how things can get any worse for her. Did that happen in the original?

For those of you who no longer watch Survivor, who I think is everyone except Austin and myself, the current game came to a surprisingly satisfying conclusion last night. For the first time in the game's history, the final five were all women, and the right woman won. Kim did the successful strategizing without any braying about kicking ass or calling her competitors idiots or the usual alpha-me behavior you see so much on that show. Only last night she revealed she'd just come out of a rough divorce, and the game had helped her regain her self-confidence. Good on ya, girl.

Assuming that Linden is the equivalent of Sarah Lund in The Killing (first series), yes, that's what happens to her. At the start of the second series, she's been holed up in the middle of nowhere for a couple of years, checking passports in a place called Gedser on an island in the bottom right-hand corner of Denmark. Then her former boss Lennert Brix begs her to come back to deal with a series of killings...

I just watched this week's episode of NCIS, the season finale, and was stunned when the final scene showed Ducky falling face down on the ground with a heart attack. I simply cannot believe they'd kill off Ducky!

It was a shock, especially coming after that sweet moment when Jimmy hugged Ducky, both of them laughing and happy. And of all places for him to collapse, alone on a beach with no one else in sight. Ducky's my favorite character, and I can't imagine the show without him.

You won't have to. Last month David McCallum renewed his contract with NCIS for two years.

Well, that's a relief.
