to be watching The Remorseful Day when I'm already feeling blue?

Still, two disks to go and I'll have finished the box set. This one and the special, The Making of Morse.

Bummer. On the one hand, excellent stories. On the other hand, the ending is The End. I've never seen The Making of Morse special, so do let us know if it's good. And of course this could just get you in the mood for a young, randy (? well, I'm extrapolating...) Morse who will soon be seen on a PBS station near you.

And of course on the other [other] hand, no actor will ever be a stand in for John Thaw, who left us 10 years ago.

Do at least open a window and let some fresh air in while you are feeling blue. It might help. Lots of love!

I was not overly impressed with The Making of Morse, perhaps because it does not compare favorably with the utter delight that was the special that aired right before the final episode of House. That was surprisingly light-hearted and fun. This was, I think, supposed to be a serious look at the series and Morse himself, but it was both slow moving and repetitive. About half the people chosen to appear in the special were barely involved with the series and contributed very little in the way of new information or insight into the characters. If you're a die-hard Morse fan, it's worth watching once. Otherwise, you can safely give it a miss.

As for fresh air, well, with my allergies opening windows is one of the many things my allergist insists I not do.

Oh, sweetie, I'm sorry you're feeling blue. *hugs* Afterwards, watch that opening bit of episode two of this season of Lewis, with them taking down the perp--SO cute and funny!

Is there anything I can do?

I should, but with the husband's rule about DLing, I don't have this season yet. I'm considering ordering it from the UK under the theory that it will be out sooner. And hopefully won't be cut the way the US version is.

I'm actually okay now. Seeing "Morse" alive in the Making of special cheered me up a great deal. And it was interesting seeing John Thaw as himself rather than Morse. I haven't often had that pleasure.

Wait, what? What rule? Aaagh! Do you want me to send them to you on a DVD? ITV did broadcast the episodes (DOES broadcast them) online on their ITV Player. I do recommend ordering the DVDs from Amazon.uk rather than PBS--the former will be mailed in about a week.

Oh, I'm glad that the Making Of cheered you up. Funnily enough, Suzan just sent those discs to me in the mail--just got 'em yesterday. Along with Morse's Oxford. As soon as I get done writing the difficult scene I'm working on with Hathaway's unexpected reunion with a family member, I'm going to take a break and watch those. :-)
