    re: Lewis, anyone else give a cheer when
    Robbie and Laura finally got together? It's not like their relationship is a major part of the series, and the "will they or won't they" wasn't as distracting and annoying as it has been for countless other series. But seeing Lewis finally turn a page in his life and be able to move on after Val ... well it did my heart glad. I guess I'm just a big ol' softie.

    And the expressions on Hathaway's and Innocent's faces were priceless!

    It was too cute when he took her hand to help her climb down the hill towards the boat/river, and then just never let go!

    And Hathaway's reaction was :rofl: !

    Yes!

    I love Hathaway. In the scenes from next week's episode, I thought I recognized his father, James Fox.

    I checked the web site, and it's Edward Fox, who I believe is an uncle.

    If it's the James and Edward I know of - they are brothers. My first recognition of Edward was in the original Day of the Jackel (great movie). My first recognition of James was in Thoroughly Modern Millie. They also have another brother, Robert, who is a producer.

    I didn't love the pilot episode of Endeavour last year -- it felt like they were cramming too much in. Maybe once it's settled down into a regular series it will be better, so I'll give it at least one more episode.

    Hope y'all got to see the behind-the-scenes special ANNIE: It's a Hard-Knock Life...From Script to Stage. It was really interesting to see the process of putting together a Broadway show. It was particularly interesting to see all the little girls of various ages auditioning, learning their roles, choreography, etc.

    ^ All kinds of rumours, and countdown widget, pointing to Oct 31 in the UK ... but not official yet.

    And everyone from Steven Moffat to the Cumberman himself have been lobbying for simultaneous (well, bar the time difference) broadcast in North America, but we'll have to wait to see if that pans out.

    That'd be GREAT! :cheer:

    But, as with Downton Abbey, I don't see PBS making that happen. :rolleyes:

    Oh, I hope this accurate! :)

    Of course, here in the states we'd have to wait 4-6 months after that (I'd estimate), but closer is CLOSER! :p

    I hope ya'll got to see A Capitol 4th on PBS... I liked that it was oldies night--Barry Manilow,Neil Diamond, Motown: The Musical--all classics that took me back to my teen years, and most of the new kids sang old songs, too! :)

    ^ Loved it! We always watch it. I do wish we got to see the entire Pops Goes the Fourth! concert from Boston in its entirety each year (it used to be aired on A&E/Bravo). In the last few years, one of the Network channels would only air the final hour or so, leading up to the fireworks. This year, nothing - although I wonder if that has to do with the tragedy of the Boston marathon bombings (and a conscious effort to keep things low key & out of the spotlight for this year ?).

    I agree...I miss the Boston Pops telecast! :( They had MBTA Transit Officer Richard Donahue (from the Watertown/Boston bomber shoot-out) conduct one of the numbers...he's recovering and on crutches, but he was able to stand for a few minutes...many in the audience were wearing BOSTON STRONG and COLLIER PROUD t-shirts...very moving and uplifting (I saw a video clip). I think the problem with getting a national broadcast is due to trouble getting a corporate sponsor to foot the cost. They barely hung on for those few years when we at least got to see the final hour.

    ^ That's truly a shame. Thanks for filling in the details of what you did see from the Boston Pops concert. Maybe - next year ...

    Review: 'Endeavour' and its younger Morse are welcome company
    'Endeavour' on PBS' 'Masterpiece Mystery' stars Shaun Evans as Morse and Roger Allam as his superior, Fred Thursday. It's an overall enjoyable prequel.

    The Seattle PBS affiliate is repeating season 7 of Foyle's War, no doubt in preparation for season 8 coming in September. I for one can't remember a lot of details about where we left off with Foyle, Sam, and the others, so I'm looking forward to that.

    2 episodes this Thursday, and the 3rd episode on the 18th.

    For some reason, I've never watched Foyle's War! :shuffle: And I like Michael Kitchen (loved him in the film Enchanted April). I think I'll start watching when Season 8 starts. :)

    EDIT: Here's another review of Endeavour...

    Well, they finally made it happen with Doctor Who after years of delayed broadcasting, so there is always hope. Of course, Doctor Who gets financial support from the US now (is it PBS? Or someone else; I don't remember) which has resulted in several episodes being filmed in the US and probably has something to do with simultaneous broadcasting.
