I'm totally grooving on PBS' Inspector Lewis. Elfin convinced me of the worthiness of slash between Lewis and Morse many years ago, and now that Morse is gone, I think Lewis and Hathaway make a fine pairing. Not to mention Hathaway is interesting to look at. I wouldn't have pegged him for my type (although now that I've said pegged, very naughty thoughts are going through my mind)...

Meanwhile, in my following of copyright issues, I somehow stumbled across an article about Lily Allen, a UK musician who complained about piracy and called for more anti-piracy legislation on her blog -- only to have it revealed that she herself created illicit mixtapes full of copyrighted music and made them available to the public. I was vastly amused. And more convinced than ever that most people don't see this type of free use as wrong and won't until they begin to feel that every single thing they do or have been involved in in the past ought to produce more income for themselves. (I put Jon Gosselin into this category too (and how sad is it that I even know how to spell his name.) (Come to think of it, I think it's a bizzare form of entitlement and makes me think of Christopher Meloni and his "player haters" remark. Being one of the few people still watching SVU, I can honestly say he's making *way* too much money as a caricature.)

Back to Lily Allen. Yesterday I read this article http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20090923/1409046297.shtml which lead to Dan Bull's open letter to Lily (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL9-esIM2CY), which is catchy enough that I found myself humming all afternoon and lead me downloading his latest album from his website (www.danbull.com). I'm listening to Safe again today and enjoying it enough that I plan to keep an eye out for this guy. Now if only he'd appear on an episode of Inspector Lewis, perhaps as a musician friend of Hathaway.

Do you have the pilot and all three series? All very good, we have them all.

May be blasphemy to some people, but we think Lewis is better than Morse.

The daughter of a friend of ours makes a minor appearance as a waitress in a later ep in S3.

Have, no. I have, however, seen the first season having borrowed it from the public library two summers ago and I've seen the first three episodes of the second season, as that's what PBS is currently showing. Life Born Of Fire was the most recent episode to air; The Great And The Good should come on later tonight. I can hardly wait.

Very cool about the daughter friend.
