Columbo even though you already know the killer

This, there’s one episode called “friend in need” and the “gotcha” is fucking outstanding. Love Columbo me

A mate from work said exactly that. Might have a look.

It's lighthearted tosh but watchable enough. The murders are cleverly done and as often as not you don't know who done it until the formulaic reveal at the end.

Inspector Morse.

What is the spin off called? Is it Lewis?

 

There's also Taggart. And there's one on itv on a Sunday evening now and I think it's got the woman off of duty free on it? If this isn't true I might have to get more sleep.

 

It's called Vera and she wasn't in duty free. Fuck.

Death in Paradise. Not great television but the Who-dun-it level is high. 

Lots of locked room mysteries. The fish out of water English detective in the Caribbean premise started ok with Ben Miller but has just got sillier with successive detectives. Can't handle the sun but doesn't have the brains to wear a hat but solves impenetrable mysteries.

Endeavour is great too.

Yeh yeh, I know True Detective series 1 was top notch but what about other detective / murder series?

 

A big deal for me is that all the clues needed to solve the crime must be on screen, no colossal leaps of faith or outrageous, non-sensical and illogical deductions. It's got to be fair.

 

Which series satisfy that criteria, which are the best?

 

I used to love 'Cracker' when it was on. 'A Touch of Frost' was also good.

I tried to watch it with Branagh but found it awful. He is ok but the support cast were pretty poor to be honest. And all speaking in English in Ystad seemed a bit silly to me.

yeah, I think the English speaking but Swedish typing is a bit Marmite - I actually like it, it's an interesting quirk.  I'm glad that they resisted the temptation to relocate it, I think that gloomy bit of Southern Sweden is the perfect setting.

I've never heard of Foyle's War and that is very highly rated. Sounds boss...

 

It is 1940 and Britain stands almost alone against the might of Nazi Germany across the continent. The terrors of nightly bombing raids are only matched by the fear and hysteria of the population at the prospect of the seemingly inevitable German invasion. It is in this environment that Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle, of the Hastings Police on the south coast of England, works. Denied a transfer to the war effort, Foyle is nonetheless forced to confront the darkest acts of humanity on a daily basis. With his official driver, Sam, and his subordinate, Paul Milner, Foyle investigates murders, looting and theft, crimes of opportunism, crimes of war, crimes of passion and crimes of greed, because crime isn't stopped because of warfare.

    • That game last night was littered with mistakes, simple passes going out of play or to the opposition, both defences showing a lack of understanding with one and other and wild challenges purely down to bad decision making. I can only envisage a load of pain for Arsenal fans next season and I doubt Leicester will by vying for a top 4 finish again. 
    • We've got a few youngsters with tremendous potential who could be about to have a breakout season. But that's not as interesting to some as waving huge cheques about.  I understand that, I get the general frustration. But the combination of FSG and Klopp's track record suggests they know what they're doing. Some seem to be more concerned with other clubs signing players - who gives a fuck what they do ?  They fucking need to sign quality just to catch us up ! I get the distinct impression some are less concerned with genuine team development than they are with a new shiny mega expensive signing.  That somehow we need to spend as much as others, or be seen to be failing.  Total bollocks. I knew Klopp's track record, I had absolute confidence in him from the day he signed.  And he's exceeded my wildest expectations.  He puts faith in his players, and it obviously works as winning 4 trophies in 13 or so months is no fluke. I can't blame FSG one bit for being cautious, nobody knows what the immediate future holds and it could be potentially suicidal to go splashing large sums of cash around when you don't have a guaranteed income to back that. Yes we need to continually keep trying to improve to stay on the perch we took so long to get back on, but it doesn't necessarily need to jeopardize the club's future. Ferguson did it at United, it could be that Klopp may emulate that now.    
    • Even if we hadn't played Leicester twice, it would be impossible for Lallana to play against us anyway. The player registration for this season is closed.   It was the right thing for the club to extend Lallana's contract until the end of this extended season. You only have to read/listen to how he's thought of at the club to appreciate why that decision was made. (That equaliser at Old Trafford certainly earned him the extension too, imho).   Also love the way Jimbo Pearce only Tweets out half of the comments made by Klopp regarding potential transfer activity:
       
    • Yeah, I have a soft spot for Borussia Mönchengladbach due to the friendship between fans after the 77 final in Rome. If a fan of theirs notices you are a Liverpool fan you end up chatting for a while, they love us. Same with Dortmund fans. I obviously like Arminia Bielefeld my local team but not a fan as such, just get a match in now and again for my live football fix. I also keep an eye out for a local team I played for in the Landesliga in the 90's, TUS Jollenbeck. Loads of other teams that I keep an eye out for the score, but purely down to being a fan of the sport and mainly based on whether I had a good time visiting the City. 
    • Infrastructure doesn't count towards FFP, so they're free to spend how ever much choose to.   They could do the planned work on the ground, but it's probably best to put it off due to the 'thing' that's floating about, but even if they built a stadium made of gold it wouldn't effect FFP.
