Midsomer Murders, 3.1, "Death of a Stranger." Either that one was a little sloppy, or four hours of sleep a day is no longer cutting it. DCI Barnaby was a step ahead of me way too often.

Re: Last Movie Watched

The Trouble with Harry, 1955, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, 99 minutes, color. Starring Edmund Gwenn, John Forsythe, Shirley McClaine, et. al.

I must have seen it a dozen times, but it's still entertaining, and a charmingly mild little blast from a better world in the Dark Times.

On May 4th 2020, Lucasfilm announced that Taika Waititi is set to direct a new Star Wars movie that will have a theatrical release. Not much is known.

Agatha Christie's Poirot, again. Again, the episode, "The Chocolate Box." And, once more, the little grey cells, they screwed me over and went to sleep.

The Last Vampyre, 1993, from the Granada series, The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes. A very bad attempt to turn "The Sussex Vampire," itself rather a modest entry in the Holmes Canon, into a feature length film. Not. Good.
