    ^ 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

    ^ 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.

    I really hope y'all are watching Endeavour (the Inspector Morse prequel). I really enjoy it. Shaun Evans brings a nice Sherlockian quality to Morse, and Roger Allam is wonderful as his commander/father figure Inspector Thursday. And Officer Strange and the medical examiner (his name escapes me) are great supporting characters.

    I've enjoyed all the episodes (2 so far + the pilot), but I thought last night's episode FUGUE was the best so far! I loved how they wove the opera themes into the plot, the twists and turns of the puzzle, and the action sequences. EXCELLENT!

    That episode clinched it...I pre-ordered the DVD. :D

    One of these days I need to check out Endeavour, if only for Roger Allam. That voice of his makes me :swoon:.

    I didn't care very much for the pilot episode of Endeavour they aired last year, but I'm liking it a lot more now that it has settled down into a regular (if short) series. Haven't watched last night's yet.

    My only quibble so far was in last week's episode when he repeatedly spouted off Sherlockian strings of observations & deductions. It wasn't that it was so completely inconsistent with the style of the elder Morse -- that's easily explained by the age & experience difference. It was that it just seemed to be a blatant attempt to rip off Sherlock.

    I'm pretty sure the show aired at the same time as Sherlock did in England, so that's an interesting point. I love the prequel, especially the interaction between Morse and Friday. And, Evans is hawt for reasons I can't explain. The smug grin behind the typewriter as he was informed he's off general duty and onto the case...:rollin:

    I think you mean Thursday instead of Friday. ;)

    And I agree about Shaun Evans...he IS a skinny, blue-eyed, toothy little HOTTIE...and his Liverpudlian accent is to die for!! :swoon: I always go for the shy awkward social misfits! :D

    haha, yes! He seems more like a weekend than a corporate outing day to me. Thanks for correcting that & posting the interview..will need to watch once I get home.

    I still think John Thaw's original comment on Morse is very relevant when it comes to explaining the character's appeal
