TV Time (Mild SHERLOCK Spoilers...)
Watched a classic Polish film, THE SARAGOSSA MANUSCRIPT, but kept falling asleep; found it terribly boring, and it seemed about six hours long. My loss, no doubt, just not for me...
I'm quite enjoying DICKENSIAN, though. Good cast, nice atmosphere. Little Nell, however, really does 'belong dead'. The SHERLOCK special, THE ABOMINABLE BRIDE  was also goofily entertaning. I never did get why Mycroft was attempting to eat himself to death on a bet. Did I doze off? Just part of the dreamydruggy thing, I guess. I had the perp pegged from the start, but it was still great fun.
It seems I really can't get into MONTALBANO, 'Young', or middle-aged. Gods know I've tried...
Luna Moon is developing into a proper cuddlebunny lap cat. Nice.

SARAGOSSA is a great film but yeah, it is complicated and sort of dry. It has that Arabian Nights thing where the people in a story start another story, and the people in that one start another story, and soon you have six or eight narratives waiting to resolve, and you have to keep track of them.

My memory of it is that the lead guy looked a little like Bob Hope to me, so I started thinking of it as a mutant Bob Hope movie.

I didn't get the enormous Mycroft thing, just seemed an excuse to surprise the audience with the Mycroft actor looking unexpected.

Lapcats are the best! Lunamoon is settled. :)
