    I'm looking forward to "Sherlock" even more than "Downtown Abbey".

    I'm also looking forward to Sherlock more than Downton. It's just brilliant.

    I have decided that my new favorite line is from the most recent episode of Paradise:

    "Excuse me, I have a sudden passion to sort buttons"

    On that note, I shall depart, as did the character. Exit stage left.

    Duplicate insanity. Evidently the thread didn't want me to go elsewhere.

    This is a fascinating look at the events of 1938, and what made the radio drama so realistic and believable to so many.

    EDIT: The radio broadcast itself...

    Hope it is rebroadcast.

    I'm enjoying this series more and more. Much more interesting than Mr. Selfridge imo...more unexpected twists and turns make for quite a compelling story.

    Has everyone seen the first official Sherlock S3 image which the BBC released last night? Having read descriptions of the scene being filmed at the time, I think I just might be more curious about what's going on in this scene than how Sherlock survived the Fall. http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2013/sherlock-image-series-three.html

    eta And this morning the date for the world premiere of The Empty Hearse with q & a at the BFI has been announced as December 15. There's an episode synopsis on the BFI site. Not really a big spoiler, but just in case anyone's concerned:
    Two years after the devastating events of ‘The Reichenbach Fall’, John appears to have got on with his life. New horizons and romance beckon. But, with London under threat of a devastating terrorist attack, Sherlock is about to take John at his word, staging his resurrection with all the theatricality that comes so naturally to him. If Sherlock thinks everything will be just as he left it, though, he's in for a very big surprise...

    I am in neutral about "Downton", but I cannot wait for "Sherlock". They still have not released UK air date. I want to see it! On computer, on some weird feed, I do not care. The series are brilliant, and the wait- far too long.

    Great production by the San Francisco Opera Co. of "Moby Dick". Jay Hunter Morris as Capt. Ahab. Excellent cast, great staging.

    I just caught the re-broadcast of Sondheim's Company, which was from a 2011 concert performance with the NY Philharmonic. It was fabulous--Neil Patrick Harris was great as Bobby, Patti LuPone owned "Ladies Who Lunch" and I was so impressed by actors (Stephen Colbert, Martha Plimpton, Jon Cryer, Christina Hendricks), whom I'd only seen in TV roles.

    If you can catch another re-run, I'd highly recommend it!

    OK, there is a show on PBS, set in Britain (duh) and it involves something to do with atomic research and clandestine activities. It is set in the ... 50s? Anyone know what it is?

    There was a recent "Foyle's War" airing that dealt with that subject. Latest episodes take place post-WWII.

    EDIT: UK gets the second season soon; we get it next spring...

    For those who watch Downton Abbey, in the trailer I spotted the actor who played Mr. Lang, Lord Grantham's shell-shocked valet from Season 2.

    Really interesting documentary! I was just 9 years old when he became president, so I remember very little of these early days...fascinating story.

    I do remember that time.
    I thought that the program was very well done.

    I saw that one as a "live"-broadcast-in-movie-theatres when it was done, and loved it from beginning to end. It's one of my favourite Sondheims, and the cast was perfect. It was particularly fun to see actors who you don't normally associate with being singers (Colbert, Plimpton, and Hendricks in particular).

    I have it on DVD too. I didn't even know PBS had picked it up.
